On 5 June 2008, Luxury Swiss watch brand Hublot SA and The Hour Glass officially open the doors to its premier boutique in Kuala Lumpur at the Starhill Gallery.
This momentous occasion marks a number of firsts: Hublot’s first standalone boutique in South-East Asia; as a boutique that is managed by The Hour Glass, one of Asia’s marques of watch retailers, it is also a first boutique collaboration.
Occupying over 1200sqft of luxury retail space in the iconic Starhill Gallery, the new Hublot boutique is ideally located right in the heart of downtown Kuala Lumpur’s fine retail belt.
Fashioned in the same stylish mien of the brand’s international boutiques and furbished in Hublot’s trademark monochromatic colours – of black, white and silver, the boutique is the epitome of cool contemporary minimalist luxe – much like the watches themselves.
The all-marble bar counter, chandelier and secluded VIP lounge set the tone for customers who will find themselves affronted with an uncluttered yet intimate environment that is not about mere watch-buying, but the promise of a total luxurious retail experience.
