Hublot ambassadors include Olympians like Usain Bolt, NBA basketball superstar Kobe Bryant and model Bar Refaeli. A new member of this admired group, joining this past January, is pianist Lang Lang, a young talent who doesn’t conform to the stereotype of a concert musician. He has widened the audience of classic music with his rock-star status, performing with the likes of Metallica and Pharrell in concert halls around the globe.
Last night in New York Hublot debuted the Big Bang Unico Bi-Retrograde Paris Saint-Germain, the official watch of French soccer club Paris Saint-Germain, in celebration of the team’s North America summer tour.
The watch is limited to 100 pieces and features a 45.5mm titanium case with a sapphire anti-reflective treatment and the Paris Saint-Germain logo printed on the caseback. Inspired by the team colors, red, white and blue hues are reflected throughout the dial, hands and strap. Manufactured with Hublot’s in-house UNICO self-winding bi-retrograde movement and designed to time two halves of a soccer match, the sporty timepiece will be available exclusively at Hublot boutiques around the world.
Jean-Claude Biver, Director of the LVMH Group Watch Division, exudes passion. He is a mentor and inspiration for countless individuals in the watch industry. Danny Govberg of Govberg Jewelers and iW Magazine sat down with Biver earlier this year to discuss luxury, motivation and watches. The result is a video you will want to watch from start to finish.
