May 5, 2016 (Bahrain) – First, different and unique, Hublot is known for its exclusive, special editions, many of which celebrate inspirational characters, celebrities, sports teams, music bands, artists and even, landmarks and places worldwide. Through the past couple of years, the luxury Swiss watch manufacturer has presented several watches honouring cities or countries in the Middle East.
The latest to emerge in the region is the Classic Fusion “The Island”, a collaboration between Hublot and its partners, Bahrain Jewellery Centre. Hublot’s ongoing vision is to develop luxury timepieces that ‘fuse’ tradition with innovation; this is clearly reflected in Bahrain’s special Classic Fusion “The Island”, which combines the brand’s exceptional craftsmanship, with touches reminiscent of Bahrain’s flag -with the red straps- and of its thirty-three islands -depicted on the case back glass.
The special Bahrain edition was launched during a full day event in Manama, gathering members of the press, collectors and loyal customers who discovered the limited collection in a friendly ambiance. Guests also ‘met’ the Hublot Baselworld novelties that are on tour in the Middle East.
“We are happy to be here in Bahrain again with members of the press and our devoted Hublotistas who have shown Hublot such passion! We found it fitting to show our gratitude by launching a Bahrain special edition in recognition of their support,” said Marco Tedeschi, Regional Director Hublot Middle East & Africa.
“We are proud to present a special Hublot watch inspired by our country and its values. Our collaboration with the brand dates back to 1981, and this is yet another great milestone in our partnership,” shared Ahmed Abul Qassim Shirazi, Director at Bahrain Jewellery Centre.
Created by Hublot exclusively for its customers and those of Bahrain Jewellery Centre, this unique timepiece is limited to thirty-three watches and will be available in Bahrain only.
