HUBLOT CLASSIC FUSION CHRONOGRAPH KUWAIT EDITION
A New Exclusive Timepiece Celebrating a Special Country
15 November 2016, Kuwait – Hublot prides itself, among others, on its exclusive, special edition watches that were launched as an homage to cities and countries. Many of these timepieces celebrate unique characteristics or landmarks of places around the Middle East. This year, the luxury Swiss watch manufacturer is presenting, once again, a watch dedicated to its collectors and customers in Kuwait: the Classic Fusion Chronograph Kuwait Edition.
This new collaboration highlights the brand’s goal of bringing the past to the future, which manifests in the sturdy partnership between Hublot and its partners, Morad Yousuf Behbehani Group. The Classic Fusion Chronograph Kuwait Edition brings a new take to the existing Classic Fusion Kuwait, with a striking blue carbon fiber bezel and a lacquered blue sunray satin-finished dial adorned with the Kuwait “8” logo in the colors of the Kuwait flag.
“Kuwait is a special market for us with more and more Hublotistas every year. We would like to thank them all for their devotion by launching this new special Kuwait edition in recognition of their support,” said Marco Tedeschi, Regional Director Hublot Middle East & Africa.
The timepiece was launched during a special dinner in Kuwait with Hublotistas, collectors and loyal customers who gathered for a friendly meal where they discovered the new exclusive edition.
Mr. Ali Morad Yousuf Behbehani, President of Morad Yousuf Behbehani Group, shared: “We are happy to bring a new special edition to our customers. The watch was inspired by our country and its flag, and for that, we are proud of its design.”
The 25 pieces were created by Hublot exclusively for its customers and those of Behbehani Group, and will only be available in Kuwait.
