Swiss brand Hublot, in continued collaboration with the Oetker Collection, is celebrating its upcoming 40th anniversary early as it enlists the help of Usain Bolt to launch a new timepiece.
The new releases are a 45mm Classic Fusion Aerofusion Chronograph Eden Rock for men and the 38mm Classic Fusion Eden Rock for women.
As the name suggests, the timepieces take inspiration from the newly renovated hotel Eden Rock – St Barths, where Hublot revealed the watches.
The Eden Rock hotel welcomed a particularly famous guest in Usain Bolt, who was present to introduce the new release.
No stranger to famous faces, the hotel’s rich history provided more than enough inspiration for the new timepiece.
The 45mm has a HUB1155 skeleton self-winding chronograph movement. The second, Hublot says, is encrusted with precious diamonds symbolising eternity, with the white lacquer of its dial set with 10 rubies.
Eden Rock CEO Fabrice Moizan commented: “Hublot has always strive to deliver something different and unique. This really echoes our moto of being so much more than just a hotel. Our dear guests and friends will undoubtedly appreciate those two exclusive timepieces.”
