Hublot celebrates the summer with three special editions inspired by three legendary party destinations like Ibiza, Capri, or St-Tropez. The Classic Fusion Aerofusion Chronograph Ceramic Blue Ibiza Boutique, Big Bang Unico St-Tropez Boutique, or Classic Fusion Aerofusion Chronograph Ceramic Capri Boutique features blue details and are made from Hublot ceramic.
Limited to 30 pieces, the Hublot Big Bang Unico St-Tropez Boutique is powered by the UNICO V2 manufacture movement. The calibre HUB1280 boasts a slimmer design, restyled architecture, easier assembly and improved visibility and functionality. The ceramic bezel, the lined rubber strap, the indices, numerals and hands are all turquoise blue, contrasting with the microblasted black ceramic case.
The Classic Fusion Aerofusion Chronograph Ceramic Blue Ibiza Boutique is a limited edition of 50 pieces. Made from colored ceramic, the watch is 45 mm in diameter and features a deep blue ceramic bezel and case. It is fitted with HUB1155 self-winding chronograph movement and boasts a power reserve of 42 hours. Its blue alligator strap is set off by white stitching and a white stripe, providing as striking a contrast to the titanium adorning the crown, pushers and H-shaped screws.
A limited edition of 50 pieces, the Classic Fusion Aerofusion Chronograph Ceramic Capri Boutique is 45 mm in diameter and features a turquoise blue lined rubber strap. The timepiece is water resistant to 50 metres.
Ceramic is Hublot’s signature; smooth and sleek to the touch, this innovative material has been perfected and patented by the manufacture. With its enhanced hardness and scratch resistance, Hublot ceramic has intense colors and is light and comfortable to wear thanks to the low heat conductivity of the ceramic and its hypoallergenic properties.
With record-breaking temperatures searing Europe this summer, it’s safe to say the beaches are an incredibly popular destination right now. To celebrate the launch of pop-up boutiques in three of Europe’s most beautiful coastal areas, Hublot have released a limited-edition watch for each branch. We’ve seen Hublot produce summer-loving watches before, but these new models are extra special with their region-specific details and individual personalities.
The first model captures both the thrill and the rejuvenating experience that is St-Tropez, the small coastal resort along the French riviera. The Hublot Big Bang Unico St-Tropez Boutique uses a soft pastel blue on the bezel, strap, and skeletonised dial markings to represent the bright blue waters of Verde Beach, while the black and blasted ceramic case gives the watch a slick, stealthy vibe that fits in with the town’s nightlife. Powered by the HUB1280 or Unico 2 movement, this limited edition of 30 pieces also displays a blue artwork of the iconic Sienna bell tower that overlooks the port, and is a short walk away from the Hublot boutique.
Next is the Hublot Classic Fusion Aerofusion Chronograph Ceramic Blue Ibiza Boutique, which is a frankly stunning watch if you can get past the long title. The Classic Fusion case is a glorious blend between elegance and modern edge, with a navy blue ceramic case polished to a liquid-like shine. The chrome-like polish on the titanium chronograph pushers offset this nicely too, pulling out the silver details on the skeletonised dial, including the peace sign at 3 o’clock. This limited edition of 50 watches represents the deep blue of the Spanish island’s dusk sky, and the leather strap classes it up to accompany you to Ibiza’s best restaurants and clubs.
Third is another reference in the Classic Fusion style, with the Hublot Classic Fusion Aerofusion Ceramic Capri Boutique. Although it uses the same pastel blue and black-case colour scheme as the St-Tropez model, the meaning behind its colours is completely different. The Grotta Azzurra sea cave has to be one of the most breathtaking sights in the world, and seeing the clear blue water illuminated throughout an otherwise pitch black cavern explains why it was used as a marine temple in Ancient Roman times. Not only is the front of the watch wonderfully evocative, but the sapphire display caseback shows an incredible depiction of the cave’s entrance, complete with sparkling water and mossy cliffs.
