Earlier this week, luxury Swiss watchmaker Hublot unveiled its latest timepiece during an intimate cocktail event at the Fifth Avenue Boutique. The special edition Classic Fusion Veuve Clicquot, created in collaboration with the French champagne house, is retailing at $17,700. It features a sapphire dial, sapphire glass, and sixty jewels.
Friends of both brands and selected media were invited to partake in the evening. Notable guests include Jean-François Sberro, Managing Director of Hublot of America; Vanessa Kay, Senior Vice President of Vueve Clicquot; and Captain of the Veuve Clicquot Polo Team, Ignacio “Nacho” Figueras. Figuera’s wife, Delfina Blaquier, was in attendance as well. Upon arrival, guests were greeted with champagne and passed hors d’oeuvres such as mini summer rolls.
Sberro presented the watch alongside Nacho Figueras and commented, “Veuve Clicquot defines their brand by being ‘modern and audacious,’ while living up to their motto of being the finest in quality. This philosophy resonated with us at Hublot as we strive to be a trailblazer in the watch industry; always evolving to be at the forefront of new concepts and technology. Our shared attributes, along with Hublot’s love for the sport, made this partnership feel like a natural connection.”
Hublot means “a different way to progress.” Every moment moves forward at a breathtaking speed to create the future. Hublot’s Chairman Jean-Claude Biver and CEO Ricardo Guadalupe have turned the Hublot brand into a success story since taking control in 2004. Hublot has long supported polo across the world, and the Classic Fusion Veuve Clicquot encapsulates its spirit of sport and style.
On June 3rd, the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic will celebrate its 10th anniversary with a day of polo, picnicking, and champagne hosted by Neil Patrick Harris. It will be held at Liberty State Park, where VIP guests will experience the Vueve Clicquot Rosé Garden including beautiful open lounge seating and a prime view of the game. The event will end with a special performance by 15-time Grammy® Award-winning singer, songwriter, and producer Alicia Keys.
The Classic Fusion Veuve Clicquot is available at the Hublot Fifth Avenue Boutique in New York City (743 Fifth Avenue at E. 58th Street) in a limited run of ten pieces.
