HUBLOT OPENS ITS SECOND BOUTIQUE IN THE RUSSIAN CAPITAL
As part of its expansion in the Russian and eastern European markets, Hublot – alongside Mercury, its long-standing partner – increases its presence in Moscow with the opening of its second boutique and the revamp of its existing address. Russia is not only one of Hublot key markets but also welcomes the brand as the Official Timekeeper and the Official Watch of the 2018 FIFA World Cup.
Hublot Boutique Moscow Metropol
As central as you can be in Moscow, the new Hublot boutique is located a stone’s throw away from Moscow’s Red Square and right opposite the Bolshoi Theatre. On the ground floor of the Metropol hotel – one of the most beautiful landmarks in the city – Hublot world spans over 116.6 square meters.
Hublot Boutique Moscow TSUM
Located in the renowned TSUM – Moscow’s largest department store and luxury shopping area, Hublot second boutique has been fully renovated and doubled its surface area. A 40.8-square-meter space featuring a curated selection of Hublot most recent watch collections.
In keeping with the brand’s distinctive line and “Art of Fusion” motto, the interiors of the two new Hublot boutiques combines natural materials such as bauxite and ebony wood. Amongst the newest timepieces to be showcased: the Big Bang Broderie, which takes embroidery away from its traditional bonds with a skull motif made of silk organza floral arabesques and the Big Bang Unico Sapphire All Black, a reinterpretation of Hublot iconic All Black style – in a completely transparent way.
Taking possession of Moscow, Hublot looks ahead at the upcoming FIFA World Cup while making the Russian capital tick to its time.
« Hublot – A different way to progress » say those who know this unique Swiss luxury watch company, where each and every moment moves forward to create the future at breathtaking speed. A dream initiated and developed by Hublot’s Chairman Jean-Claude Biver with CEO Ricardo Guadalupe, when they took control of the brand in 2004. These two men are responsible for turning the Hublot brand into a genuine success story in which the Big Bang, Classic Fusion, and Grandes Complications Collection represent the symbols of a constantly evolving tradition. 2016 marks the 10th Anniversary of ALL BLACK, a concept created by Hublot to create a watch with blackened hands, indexes, dial and date, rendering a timepiece not explicitly about telling time.
From in-house watch complications, including award-winning minute repeaters and tourbillons, to revolutionary materials such as patented and scratch resistant Magic Gold, colored Texalium carbon fiber, and transparent sapphire cases to world class collaborations such as Ferrari, FIFA™ World Cup, and Italia Independent, Hublot characterizes itself through the « Art of Fusion » philosophy, bringing tradition into the future.
On a commercial level, the network of stores currently stands at more than 70 exclusive boutiques around the world (Geneva, Cannes, Saint-Tropez, Paris, London, Berlin, Moscow, New York, Miami, Beverly Hills, Las Vegas, Atlanta, Singapore, Shanghai, Beijing, Hong Kong, Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Kuala Lumpur, Ginza, Frankfurt, Zermatt…).
