Hublot celebrated the 10th anniversary of the Big Bang collection with an exclusive fun-filled party unveiling Baselworld 2015 limited edition and welcomes football star Chappuis as its new brand ambassador in Thailand.
Swiss luxury watchmaker Hublot in cooperation with PMT The Hour Glass, Hublot’s sole authorised dealer in Thailand, organised Bangkok’s most exclusive “Hublot Private Party” to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Hublot’s Big Bang collection at Ku De Ta Bangkok, Sathorn Square Complex on 14 October.
The party attracted a huge turnout of A-list celebrities and film stars including Voravud and Nandhamalee Bhirombhakdi, Dr.Nathasedh Poonsapmanee, Nana Rybena Intachai, and Ravit Tuetvongse.
The distinguished guests had an exclusive chance of discovering the sophisticated timepieces originally on display at Baselworld 2015. On this occasion of the 10th anniversary of Big Bang, Hublot announced its cooperation with Thai Premier League’s club Suphanburi football club, and took the guests by surprise by naming its hot midfielder Charyl Chappuis as Hublot’s first brand ambassador in Thailand.
Mr Narun Thamavaranukup, Managing Director of PMT The Hour Glass, said: “A key principle behind Hublot’s Big Bang collection is the art of fusion. Though Hublot is not a century-old brand with a long history like many Swiss counterparts, the brand has seen relentless growth over the past decade, reflecting its potential unmatched by other brands in terms of its pursuit of innovations like the ‘Art of Fusion’ design concept as well as its outstandingly creative marketing strategy, which is well recognised in the world of watchmaking. This has made Hublot a much sought-after brand among Thai and foreign timepiece lovers. Thanks to the consumer’s increased confidence in the brand, PMT The Hour Glass continues to expand its sale outlets with the most recent Hublot shop-in-shop called PMT The Hour Glass Boutique opened on the G floor of the EmQuartier shopping mall.
PMT The Hour Glass welcomed a large turnout of our VIP customers and business partners at the event. The company was also honoured to welcome Hublot’s Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Ricardo Guadalupe who flew in to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Big Bang collection and to announce Hublot’s official partnership contract with Suphanburi Football Club.”
Hublot’s CEO, Ricardo Guadalupe said: “I’ve come to Thailand to take part in the Big Bang collection’s anniversary event and I am really happy tonight to establish a partnership between Hublot and the Thai soccer team, Suphanburi FC. Over the past, next to being the official timekeeper of the FIFA World Cup™ and the UEFA EURO™, Hublot has actively formed partnerships with leading football clubs in Europe including FC Bayern Munich, Paris Saint-Germain, Juventus and Chelsea. On this occasion, Hublot is proud to become the official timekeeper for Suphanburi FC in the Thailand’s top league. Moreover, we also have a chance to have one of Thailand’s hottest football celebrities Charyl Chappuis as our first brand ambassador in Thailand. I think this represents another successful step for Hublot to receive strong support from our Thai customers.”
Mr.Varawut Silpa-archa, president of Suphanburi FC, said: “First of all, I’d like to congratulate Hublot on the occasion of its 10th anniversary. I’m a long time fan of Hublot, and I’ve witnessed the brand’s phenomenal participant in sport world including the F1 racing and the leading European football leagues with the latest sponsorship deal with the Premier League title holders Chelsea. Our cooperation with Hublot is a pair of two different things – timepiece and football but I believe that we do share something in common. Hublot timepieces are made with varieties of materials including Magic Gold, ceramic composite, Carbon fiber and Titanium which are used in making the exquisite timepieces. Likewise, a football club also needs a variety of highly capable staff memberss. We need to have an experienced team manager, trainer, a good medical team, and a good team of football players, all cohabitating together, to name just a few.”
The party wowed the crowd with a showcase of special timepieces from limited-edition collections unveiled at Baselworld 2015. The watches were displayed in a special show. The fashion show drew loud cheers from spectators and guests.
The highlight was the moment that Hublot announced the Thai-Swiss midfielder Charyl Chappuis as new ambassador. With the appointment of Chappuis and the partnership with his football club, the brand emphasized its slogan “HUBLOT Loves Football”.
Chappuis shared his excitement as he has been named the first brand ambassador in Thailand: “Hublot is the brand that shares its passion with sports, and has been working with numbers of world’s leading icons – like of Pelé, Diego Maradona, José Mourinho, Falcao and also a good friend of mine, Xherdan Shaqiri. Myself and my Suphanburi football club are honored and proud to become part of the Hublot family and we are looking forward to working with Hublot in the years to come.”
Just before the night ended, the party went into full swing with a fun-filled and non-stop mini concert featuring Thailand’s R&B queen Sarunrat “Lydia” Visutthithada and Thailand’s very own king of hip hop Thaitanium.
