I mentioned that Jean-Claude wasn't a watch maker. This is true, but he is a watch lover. He is living his passion. From large brands to small brands, he has dedicated his professional life to the Swiss watch industry. JCB is also an avid watch collector. The bank holds his treasures, but treasures he has. I was amazed to learn that JCB is one of the new people who bid on those massively expensive AAA Replica Hublot Big Bang Watches UK auctions. In fact, aside from Hublot is his other love. JCB does not wear Patek Philippe watches - he merely collects them. They are precious items, not to be worn. I understand him actually. This is the hallmark of a true collector. Never ruin the corpus of your collection with risky handling. Especially when some of these watches are easily in the million dollar plus range.
When i first wrote about the “Huge Bang! ” back in April, there were no watches to show, only Hublot-branded substitution boards. But now the official Timekeeper for the next two FIFA World Cups has unveiled the official Watch for the same. The Hublot FIFA World Cup watch is a beautifully executed 45mm version of the Hublot Classic Fusion. Note the FIFA World Cup Trophy on the dial. The thing is, though, there will only be 100 pieces, so i think it is safe to say that this is the first but certainly not the last we have seen from Hublot for FIFA.
Incidentally, Hublot’s gummy alligator straps are pretty cool — basically rubber on the inside, alligator on the outside! While these might seem like odd bedfellows, of course they work quite well with Hublot’s “fusion” concept. I can say from experience that the gummy alligator straps have a great feel to them. Personally I’d prefer this watch http://www.waxreplica.co.uk/replica-tag-heuer-grand-carrera-watches-sale-for-uk.html on a more toned-down black strap!
We already have an in-depth understanding of the footballing world, as Hublot was the first luxury brand to become involved in this field. It is a great honour and an immense pleasure to become the “Official Watchmaker” for the next two FIFA World Cups(TM), and to be a part of the largest televised event in the world.
In summary, it looks like via its sponsorship of the Financial Times, Hublot can lay claim to being the first watch brand to show itself on the Apple ipad. Congrats to Jean-Claude Biver and team for yet again being on the cutting-edge of technology! At the recent 2015 Farmers Open PGA championship, Hublot announced 2013 US Open Champion Justin Rose as its newest ambassador. While Hublot is not new to the concept of famous sports figures as ambassadors – as this is the brand Cheap Replica Breitling Super Ocean Watches UK counts Pelé, Diego Maradona, Kobe Bryant, Dwayne Wade, Usain Bolt, and many more in its legion of ambassadors – this meant the first time Hublot had entered the lucrative sport of golf and got a champion to join its ambassadors' ranks.
While the event was certainly highly scripted, what was not and felt genuine was Justin's candid and kind demeanor. Also, both Matt and Justin Rose seemed to be genuinely passionate fans of the brand while sporting their Hublot watches with pride and affection. I got a chance to talk to each of them, and although the conversation was short, it became clear to me that Justin Rose had personally acquired his watch as a present to commemorate his win in Dubai – and that was when he discovered the brand, actually before Hublot approached him. A similar situation transpired with Matt who perhaps acquired the watch-bug via his other ball-player colleagues in the locker room.
