July 28th, Capri (Italy) – An exclusive concept, a gem boutique, a tribute to the crystal clear waters of the

Blue Grotto. In the core of the Summer season, Hublot opens officially its new boutique, located in the iconic heart of Capri’s luxury shopping district.

The design, by seafaring inspiration, is exclusive to Hublot’s Mediterranean boutiques, therefore also Porto Cervo, Cannes and Saint Tropez.

Overlooking the central via Vittorio Emanuele, the boutique is the new prestigious Hublot showcase in Capri, close to those of the most important brands of international luxury.

The ribbon cutting ceremony was held by Augusto Capitanucci, Hublot Regional Director for the Mediterranean Countries.

To celebrate Summer Hublot releases a new chronograph to showcase the blue of the sky and the sea. Housed in blue ceramic, the Big Bang Blue comes beach-ready with a blue and white natural rubber strap, or blue alligator strap, perfect for Summer evenings. Under its cerulean skeleton dial, the UNICO manufacture movement, and its self-winding flyback chronograph with column wheel, it manages your time in complete autonomy for three days. The perfect time to relax and enjoy a break. Just 100 Big Bang Blue pieces are being released, initially available from the brand’s Summer boutiques in Capri, Saint-Tropez, Cannes, Porto Cervo and Mykonos – before calling at all Hublot boutiques across the world.
