Not content with being the official timekeepers at the 2014 FIFA World Cup, currently keeping many a football fan up way past bedtime, Hublot celebrates the 76th annual Bol d’Or Mirabaud regatta with an elegant Classic Fusion chrono in titanium and carbon with a hint of deep blue so as to mirror the waters of Lake Geneva. At the same time they are also the official timekeepers of the event.
To commemorate the 76th anniversary of the regatta, Hublot has released precisely 76 numbered Bol d’Or Mirabaud regatta timepieces. Last year demand far outstripped supply for the Official race watch, which neatly ties in with Jean-Claude Biver’s philosophy of always keeping the customer hungry for more.
The Classic Fusion Bol d’Or Mirabaud 2014 is a fusion of titanium, carbon fibre and rubber; a chronograph watch made from lightweight, corrosion resistant titanium, featuring a carbon fibre dial for a high-tech sporty look. The strap, a Hublot hallmark, is made from carbon fibre sewn onto black rubber.
The new model features two sunburst counters and saddle stitching on the strap in deep midnight blue complementing the titanium and carbon fibre. "76ème édition BOL D’OR Mirabaud" is engraved on the case back.
The Bol d’Or? It is the world's premier inland lake regatta bringing together almost 600 yachts on the waters of Lake Geneva. Amateurs and professionals, including champions from all over Europe, meet on the starting line in Geneva harbour. With over 3000 sailors, and thousands of spectators lining the banks, the Bol d’Or Mirbaud Regatta while highly competitive and cutting edge, still retains an open, friendly atmosphere.
