Hublot – Aero Bang “Bal Harbour” and King Power Aero All Black “Bal Harbour”

Hublot has created two extremely limited Bal Harbour series to celebrate the opening of the first Hublot boutique in the United States.

September 2010 marked an important stage in the international development of Hublot: the opening of the Brand’s first American boutique, in the most luxurious shopping mall in the United States: Bal Harbour in Miami.

To celebrate the event, Hublot has created two models in a highly exclusive series, an Aero Bang “Bal Harbour” and a King Power Aero All Black “Bal Harbour”, both with just 25 numbered pieces and available exclusively from the Bal Harbour boutique.

These two models represent the quintessence of the brand’s DNA. The two “Bal Harbour” limited series feature components – bezel lugs, lateral inserts, push-pieces, indexes, hands and rubber & calfskin straps branded with the inscription BAL HARBOUR LIMITED EDITION – which are sand-coloured, alluding to the white sands of the vast beach and dunes of Bal Harbour.

Both models are equipped with an automatic chronograph movement, which has been meticulously skeletonised by Hublot Manufacture watchmakers. Hence thanks to the aesthetic and completely transparent design of both models, this exceptional work becomes the watch dial itself; the indexes, hands and counters are then added in order to highlight the technical refinement of these special editions.
