Prestigious Swiss watch brand Hublot launches the limited edition King Power 692 Bang, a piece exclusive to the brand’s 692 Madison Avenue flagship boutique in New York City. Limited to 26 pieces, the King Power 692 Bang is available in black ceramic and includes interchangeable yellow and black straps, inspired by the colors of the iconic NYC Taxi Cab. Its case-back is adorned with a sketch of the Madison Avenue boutique façade, a building designed by famed architect Peter Marino and inspired by the grand luxury townhouses of New York’s historic Upper East Side neighborhood.
With a diameter of 48mm and a sophisticated yet sporty design, the counters, hands and minute track are in the same yellow as the stitching on the black rubber and hornback crocodile strap, a color which underscores the unique character of the King Power 692 Bang – a color representative of the yellow taxi cabs that line the streets of Manhattan.
Hublot celebrated this unique launch with an intimate cocktail event at the 692 Madison Avenue boutique on Wednesday, July 16, 2014.
