Hublot has unveiled the “Jeans” watch collection, the first denim-themed timepieces produced by a luxury watch brand.
The dials and straps are made by an Italian denim manufacturer who supplies the world’s biggest luxury and fashion names.
Based on an idea by Tina Zegg, the collection comprises three ladies’ “Big Bang Jeans” watches and one ultra-technical men’s diving watch, the “Oceanographic 4000 Jeans”, all of which incorporate a detail of Dsquared denim from Tina Zegg.
An accessory that has remained on trend since its creation, jeans are still an essential fashion item. Chic, rock’n’roll, sexy, boho, vintage, urban, authentic, tie-dye – denim is whatever you want it to be, and an enduring wardrobe staple for men and women alike.
The launch of this collection, which combines fashion with the quality craftsmanship of Haute Horlogerie watches, took place yesterday at the Wellness Hotel Chasa Montana in Samnaun in the heart of the Swiss Alps (Zegg Hotels & Stores), and was attended by the German Double Olympic and World skiing champion, Maria Höfl-Riesch, a Hublot ambassador since 2011. She was joined by Jean-Claude Biver, Chairman of Hublot, Ricardo Guadalupe, CEO of Hublot and Tina Zegg and Carlo Cerlati of Zegg&Cerlati in Monaco.
The Oceanographic 4000 Jeans is a special edition exclusively created for Zegg & Cerlati boutiques, at Place du Casino in Monte Carlo, Ischgl in Austria and Samnaun in Switzerland. The Big Bang Jeans will also be exclusively available until the end of summer in Monaco.
