To celebrate the 76th annual Bol d’Or Mirabaud regatta, Swiss luxury watch maker Hublot is unveiling an elegant Classic Fusion chrono in titanium and carbon with a hint of deep blue mirroring the waters of Lake Geneva. The Official Timekeeper of the event since last year, Hublot will be associated once again this year with the most important lake regatta in the world, which has the bonus of being organised “at home”, in the west of Switzerland.
A fusion of titanium, carbon fibre and rubber, the Classic Fusion Bol d’Or Mirabaud 2014 is a chronograph watch made from titanium, a material which is lightweight, shockproof and extremely resistant to corrosion, featuring a carbon fibre dial and bezel, which lends it a high-tech sporty look ever-popular amongst crews.
A strap, which is also made from carbon fibre sewn onto black rubber, completes the piece. Two sunburst counters and saddle stitching on the strap in magnificent deep midnight blue mirroring the waters of Lake Geneva, which perfectly complements the titanium and carbon fibre. Only 76 numbered watches will be produced, featuring “76 ème édition BOL D’OR Mirabaud” engraved on the back.
Bol d’Or is the world’s premier inland lake regatta, bringing together 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 start, an exemplary 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.
