Sapphire Night with Hublot & PMT The Hour Glass
Its been a big week for the brand behind the Big Bang. On the 29th of August, PMT The Hour Glass and Hublot hosted an exclusive party called “Sapphire Night”. Located at Bangkok’s The Crystal Box, Gaysorn Urban Resort’s 19th floor was transformed into a luxurious club setting, filled with bright colour and character.
Performances included a surprise mini-concert from renowned hip-hop artist Way DaBoyWay. DJ Buddha set the mood for the energetic after party.
In addition to strengthening its image as a leader in the luxury watch industry, Hublot also reinforced its “Art of Fusion” concept and its pioneering work in pushing the limits of material science. This can be seen from the timepieces made of sapphire, a special material that enables the in-house movement to be fully visible, like floating on the wrist.
Sapphire models include colourless as well as coloured versions; the latter has been specially created through a special production process resulting in unique colours such as red, blue, black or pink, the newest colours offered this year. Each model reflects its own character and beauty.
At the event, Hublot brought the latest sapphire and gem-encrusted highlights from both Geneva and Baselworld 2018 to display, including the Big Bang Unico Black Sapphire Galaxy, Big Bang Unico Red Sapphire Baguette Rubies, the iconic Big Bang Unico Blue Sapphire and Spirit of Big Bang Sapphire, as well as additional exclusive novelties in 39mm size. For the ladies, the company showcased the Big Bang One-Click Sapphire Diamonds andBig Bang One-Click Pink Sapphire Diamonds.
Narun Thamavaranukup, Managing Director of PMT The Hour Glass, the representative of Hublot in Thailand, said, “Hublot is the leader in luxury sports watches that embodies the design concept of “The Art of Fusion”, by combining cutting-edge functionality and technology with the use of innovative materials to create the ultimate in value.”
Narun goes on to say “and from the great success of Hublot internationally, as well as the nine-year period that PMT The Hour Glass has served as the brand’s official distributor in Thailand, we have built a Hublot customer base that continues to grow. In Thailand, the popularity of Hublot is not limited to men’s watches only, but also the ladies’ models, catering to those with a modern eye and lifestyle, as well as an appreciation for luxury timepieces. Hublot has resonated with all young fans of today. And PMT The Hour Glass is proud to welcome on this occasion Hublot’s CEO Mr Ricardo Guadalupe.”
Mr. Ricardo Guadalupe, CEO of Hublot, said, “Since 2016, Hublot has developed sapphire material into watches. Tonight, Hublot is honored to welcome key business partners such as Cavallino Motors Co., Ltd., the official Ferrari distributor in Thailand, and Buriram United, the leading football club in Thailand. They are both important global and local partners and contribute significantly to HUBLOT’s brand recognition in the world of speed and the world of sports. This Sapphire Night Party strengthens the profile of Hublot watches among trendsetters, not only in the field of watchmaking, but also by communicating the brand’s appeal to a new generation of people through musical performances, activities and other colorful events.
