Hublot enters summer mode for the new Big Bang Blue, a 100-piece limited edition that premieres in the brand’s boutiques in Saint-Tropez and Cannes, opened in true nautical style by Lapo Elkann.

After having reimagined its boutiques in Zermatt and Courchevel as Alpine huts, Hublot is lending a nautical air to its summer boutiques. Azure blue façades reflect the Mediterranean, while the interior walls panelled in aged oak suggest pontoons, with rope handles featuring sailor’s knots, display cases combining wood and fabric in nautical colours, natural jute carpeting, and sand-coloured soft seating. Join

Accompanied by ambassador Lapo Elkann, Ricardo Guadalupe, CEO of Hublot, inaugurated these two new boutiques. Official ribbon-cutting was replaced with a traditional ship launch ceremony, with rigging and a bottle of champagne broken across the “hull” ensuring fair winds blow for these two new vessels.

To celebrate summer a new watch is being released to showcase the blue of the sky and the sea. Housed in blue ceramic, the Big Bang Blue comes beach-ready with a blue and white natural rubber strap, or blue alligator strap, perfect for summer evenings. Under its cerulean skeleton dial, the UNICO manufacture movement, and its self-winding flyback chronograph with column wheel, manages your time in complete autonomy for three days. The perfect time to relax and enjoy a break. Just 100 Big Bang Blue pieces are being released, initially available from the brand’s summer boutiques in Cannes, Saint-Tropez, Porto Cervo, Capri and Mykonos – before calling at all Hublot boutiques across the world.

Fresh from the Ferrari design studio, this is the new Hublot Big Bang Ferrari Chronograph Unico

Five years after announcing their partnership, the Ferrari-Hublot duo shows no signs of slowing down

In early November 2011, under cloudy Florentine skies, then-Ferrari president Luca Cordero di Montezemolo and Jean-Claude Biver, then-CEO (now chairman) of Hublot, arrived at Autodromo Internazionale del Mugello, the practice track for Scuderia Ferrari, to make an announcement bright with promise: For the fifth time since its founding, Ferrari was entering a long-term fine-timepiece collaboration, this one with Hublot.

Officially, Hublot was dubbed and remains the “watch and timekeeper of Ferrari” as well as the “timekeeper of Scuderia Ferrari” (the company’s racing division) and the “timekeeper of the Ferrari Challenge” -- a unique mono-marquee FIA-approved race series held across three regions: Europe, Asia-Pacific and North America. The Challenge culminates every year in the Finali Mondiali, a final race series that pits the regional champions against one another. This year’s Finali was held at Daytona International Speedway in Florida, where Hublot and Ferrari introduced the all-new Hublot Big Bang Ferrari.

So, under blinding Sunshine State skies, at yet another classic race circuit, almost five years to the day after the companies announced their initial joint venture, Hublot CEO Ricardo Guadalupe and North America managing director Jean-François Sberro, along with Scuderia Corsa Ferrari driver Martin Fuentes presented the 45 mm Big Bang Ferrari Chronograph Unico to the U.S. market in the presence of a select few watch journalists, other Ferrari Challenge racers and privileged Hublot and Ferrari collectors.

The new timepiece was redesigned by Ferrari chief designer Flavio Manzoni to reflect the curves and angles of some of his most notable car models: the California T, 488 GTB and LaFerrari. “The new design combines cutting-edge technology and contemporary style, featuring a new silhouette and advanced features such as improved readability on the dial, countersunk notches on the case for improved ergonomic fit, and new stylistic attributes to better represent Ferrari characteristics, like elongated push buttons fixed to a rotating staff in the likeness of pedals on a car,” said Sberro.

As its name indicates, the Chronograph Unico comes equipped with the in-house-produced Unico automatic flyback chronograph caliber, whose Ferrari model oscillating weight echoes the classic star-spoke design of Ferrari rims. The movement is housed in one of three limited-production case-metal options in this reimagined Big Bang: titanium (1,000 pieces), carbon (500) and 18k King Gold (500). The automotive dashboard instrumentation–inspired dial discreetly features the prerequisite prancing Ferrari horse at 6 o’clock.

“The watch is not the most important part of this partnership,” Hublot’s Biver, a larger-than-life character who owns a vintage 1967 Ferrari 275 GTB/4, has said. “Ours is an ‘ambassador partnership’ in which Ferrari is an ambassador of Hublot. Ferrari brings awareness, prestige and exclusivity to Hublot in countries where [Hublot] lacks recognition. Ours is a marriage.” To which Sberro adds, “Each new edition of the Big Bang Ferrari represents our quest for innovation, excellence, and performance; values that both of our organizations embody, and we look forward to the continued celebration of our long-standing partnership.” And so, it seems, the honeymoon continues.
