If the heatwave had you dreaming about escaping the city for coastal hotspots abroad, Hublot’s latest releases might take you one step closer. The trio of new timepieces transport you to the holiday favourites of Ibiza, Capri and St Tropez, where the watchmaker has also set up shop for the summer with a series of pop-up boutiques.
Decked out in blue hues, each takes inspiration from the local nature and architecture. The Big Bang Unico St-Tropez Boutique features vibrant turquoise highlights across the bezel, hands, indices and strap, echoing the crystal-clear waters of Tahiti and Pampelonne beach. Limited to 30 pieces, it comes powered by the Unico V2 manufacture movement, its 72-hour power reserve more than ample for a weekend getaway.
A combination of deep blue and white highlights engulf the Classic Fusion Aerofusion Chronograph Ceramic Blue Ibiza Boutique, limited to 50 pieces. Utilising coloured ceramic across the bezel and case, the shades recall the contrast of the island’s white walls and the blue of the horizon from Cala Conta. In a playful touch befitting of the party destination, the sapphire-crystal caseback is inscribed “H ♥ Ibiza”.
Rounding off the trio is the Classic Fusion Aerofusion Chronograph Ceramic Capri Boutique. Capturing the magical waters of Capri’s Grotta Azzurra, the 50-piece limited edition pairs turquoise with black ceramic to dramatic effect.
