Hublot revealed its third limited-edition timepiece in collaboration with Veuve Clicquot in honor of the 12th anniversary Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic taking place on June 1, where Hublot is serving as the official timekeeper and scoreboard sponsor. This 12-piece limited edition watch ref. 521.CM.1490.lR.VCP19 is available with straps in Veuve Clicquot Yellow alligator and black leather and features a 45.5 mm case in satin-finished and polished black ceramic. To kick off this year’s Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic, Hublot and Veuve Clicquot unveiled this third limited edition timepiece at Hublot’s Fifth Avenue Boutique and hosted an intimate dinner at Nobu 57 afterwards.
The watch was unveiled by Jean-François Sberro, President of Hublot North America, alongside famed Argentinian polo player and captain of the Veuve Clicquot Polo Team, Ignacio "Nacho" Figueras. Hublot emulated Veuve Clicquot’s signature style throughout the boutique with accents like a Veuve Clicquot cart, and brought to life with an animated video in the brand’s famous illustration style before the grand reveal. The timepiece was then unveiled, presented on a large-scale arrangement of exquisite yellow floral arrangements evoking the brand’s signature colors. Later this evening, guests continued celebrating over dinner and champagne with Chef Nobu Matsuhisa.
“It has been an honor to be a part of this amazing Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic event since the very beginning. My passion has always been to make polo a more mainstream and accessible sport and it is great to have the support of partners like Hublot to help bring new offerings to the experience. The 12th anniversary celebration will be one to remember!" said Nacho Figueras.
This upcoming Saturday, June 1, 2019 the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic will celebrate its 12th anniversary by returning to Liberty State Park for an afternoon of polo, stylish fashions, and champagne, all in Hublot time. Hublot will serve as the official timekeeper and scoreboard sponsor for the match, and Nacho Figueras will be sporting the collaboration watch. Festivities will continue into the Rosé Garden, where guests can enjoy elevated experiences with glasses of Veuve Clicquot Rosé, premium views of the match, and a beautiful garden lounge setting, all drawing a star-studded list of celebrities and friends of the brand on the “green carpet.”
