Hublot Big Bang “Polo Club Saint-Tropez”

Posted by wristwatch on July 11, 2007

To mark the launch of the summer season, Hublot, the watchmaking brand, is opening a St. Tropez branch, its second single-brand store in France after the Paris branch, and using the occasion to launch a limited edition new model of its famous Big Bang, sporting the ‘Polo Club Saint-Tropez’ logo.

In mid-June, the famous Swiss watchmaking brand opened a second single-brand store in France, after locating its Paris branch in the Rue Saint Honoré. Three months after the opening of its Paris store, Hublot has now decided to put down roots in St. Tropez. Situated inside the Byblos hotel, the Nyon workshop has chosen a prime setting in the heart of St. Tropez old town.

To cement its presence in the most jet-setting harbour in the world, Hublot is entering a new prestigious partnership, in the wake of its Monaco Yacht Club and Wally Yacht associations, this time with the St. Tropez Polo Club. Especially for the occasion, Hublot has produced a limited edition of 250 Big Bang pieces carrying the ‘Polo Club Saint-Tropez’ logo. The model will be presented at the gala dinner to be held on 7th July, on the eve of the season’s first polo competition finals: the International Polo Cup. It’s the first time that a Big Bang 44mm comes with two interchangeable straps, one in a fusion of alligator skin and rubber, which makes this model an exclusive on more than one count. The steel case is adorned with a white ceramic bezel and white dial embellished with a hint of azure blue at 9 o’clock in the form of the ‘Polo Club Saint-Tropez’ logo. The colour of the bezel is by no means an accident, it’s the very same white that has earned St. Tropez its international reputation.
