New York, New York – Reported by Elite Traveler, the private jet lifestyle magazine
“Hublot? A different way to progress”. So say those in the know about this unique Swiss watch company, where each and every moment moves forward to create the future at breathtaking speed. A dream, a meteoric rise initiated by Jean-Claude Biver, Hublot’s CEO, the man responsible for turning this brand into a genuine success story in which the Big Bang, King Power, Classic Fusion and Masterpieces represent the symbols of a constantly developing tradition.
Hublot has a natural link with the Yacht Club de Monaco, having been appointed the official timekeeper for this prestigious site and its activities in 2005. A history of firm friendship and mutual respect developed over the years. “The Yacht Club de Monaco above all represents a deep love for the sea. Whether on the water or on land, yachting in competitions or for pleasure. Whether aboard ultra-modern super maxis or classic boats, Hublot also shares these values and contrasts””, explains Jean-Claude Biver, the company’s owner.
In tribute to the Yacht Club de Monaco and this year’s celebrations marking the 10th anniversary of the Monaco Classic Week, which takes place from the 14th to the 18th September 2011, Hublot has created a Classic Fusion Chronograph, a sport-chic model in titanium, chosen for its lightness, shock resistance and extreme corrosion-resistant properties, featuring a deep navy blue dial with silver-plated counters and a strap in blue alligator leather stitched onto rubber to ensure a better resistance to sea water. The club’s exclusive colors appear at the centre of the dial under the central hand arbor. Just 250 numbered pieces will be produced.
A shared means of preserving the values of La Belle Classe – a respect for maritime heritage – which have always been cherished by both the club and the Swiss watchmaker. A respectful nod to the great traditions combined with a firm focus on the future: this manifesto clearly reflects the policy of Hublot and its CEO, linking sea and land, tradition and innovation, wood and high-tech materials, time and space. A fusion of all elements, all technologies.
