Mirabaud is the world’s premier inland lake regatta and also a huge nautical festival, almost 600 yachts on the waters of Lake Geneva. Amateurs and professionals, including champions from all over Europe, meet on the starting line in Geneva harbour. Over 3000 sailors, thousands of spectators lining the banks, a truly stunning Organisation Committee and a hundred volunteers, this is the competition that has it all, from the most cutting-edge innovations in nautical research to an open, friendly atmosphere.
Swiss luxury watch brand HUBLOT has been chosen as the official timekeeper for the regatta, which celebrates its 75th anniversary. The event kicks off in front of the Société Nautique de Genève yacht club on Saturday, 15th June at 10am. Switzerland. To pay tribute to the celebration of the event, Hublot has created a special edition Classic Fusion Chronograph, a stylish sports watch in titanium, chosen for its lightness, shock-resistance and extreme resistance to corrosion, featuring a carbon fibre dial with silver counters and a chronograph hand in the deep blue of the Lake Geneva waters.
A strap, which is also made from carbon fibre sewn onto black rubber, completes the piece. Only 75 numbered watches will be produced featuring “75ème édition Bol d’Or Mirabaud” engraved on the back.
