Cover your wrist with an ode to the Mediterranean Sea with Hublot’s limited-edition pieces.
This summer, the watchmaking brand Hublot adopts the Roman name for the Mediterranean Sea, Mare Nostrum. A new line of watches has been created to celebrate the hottest months of the year and their new boutiques in holiday destinations. From Spain to Turkey, travelling through Italy and Greece, the brand is opening a series of new outlets with their own limited-edition watches.
Each representing an unforgettable summer haven. The party island of Ibiza now boasts a new Hublot boutique with its own specially designed watch: the Classic Fusion Chronograph Boutique Ibiza. Inside its blue ceramic case sits a self-winding chronograph movement that beats to the rhythm of the island’s night at a frequency of 4Hz, or 28,800 vibrations per hour. Its dial features the Flower Power symbol – the destination’s emblem.
In Italy, a brand new Hublot boutique is opening its doors in the Tuscan seaside resort of Forte Dei Marmi. The inauguration is marked by the launch of a watch specially designed for the occasion: the Classic Fusion Chronograph Boutique Forte di Marmi. Available in a limited edition of 35 pieces, this 45mm diameter model is notable for its beige case, dial and rubber strap. It is powered by the calibre HUB1143, a chronograph movement with a 42-hour power reserve. Still on Italian soil, Capri is the next stop at Hublot’s boutique in the Rue Vittorio Emanuele, where customers can purchase the Classic Fusion Chronograph Boutique Capri. With a titanium case topped with a ceramic bezel whose azure colour echoes the skies above the Bay of Naples, the model is available in only 30 pieces.
The journey continues to Mykonos, in Greece, where Hublot has just unveiled its tenth model dedicated to the famous Cyclades Island. Based on the iconic Classic Fusion Chronograph, this 2021 version marries dark blue with the warmth of rose gold, recalling the island’s breathtaking sunset. A bladed rotor on the dial symbolises the Kato Myli – the island’s iconic windmills.
Arriving in Turkey, a new boutique has opened in Bodrum. The city faces the Aegean Sea, and its sparkling colours have inspired a new 25-piece limited edition Hublot watch. The dial and strap of the Classic Fusion Chronograph Boutique Bodrum are in blue, which is beautifully complemented by the white chronograph counters and strap stitching. The 45mm titanium case houses a Hublot calibre HUB1143 movement.
Hublot’s collections are available at Bahrain Jewellery Centre (BJC).
