On 17 Sep 2017, Hublot celebrated the opening of its second Las Vegas boutique – at The Shops at Crystals – with a ribbon cutting ceremony, cocktail reception, and special appearance by brand ambassador Gennady “GGG” Golovkin following this weekend’s match versus Mexican boxer Canelo Alvarez at the T-Mobile Arena.
Gennady “GGG” Golovkin, professional Kazakh boxer is currently the middleweight world champion in four different federations: WBA, WBC, IBO, and IBF. Hublot also launched the limited-edition Classic Fusion 45mm Chronograph “Gennady Golovkin” created in honor the middleweight world champion and brand ambassador.
The new Hublot boutique at Crystals showcases a more modern, luxurious design with private lounge seating throughout and a full bar in the back of the store to be enjoyed by customers. The Crystals store will also house the limited-edition All Black and black diamond Big Bang Las Vegas special edition pieces, exclusive to the Las Vegas market, launched last month.
The CLASSIC FUSION 45MM CHRONOGRAPH “GENNADY GOLOVKIN was created in a limited run of 100 pieces to commemorate the partnership with the great boxer and Hublot.
The watch is housed in a polished black ceramic 45mm case and contains a self-winding movement with a power reserve of 42 hours. Yellow gold subdials, hands, and screws pop against the black background, with Gennady Golovkin’s initials standing proudly at 12 o’clock and his logo – two gloves banging together – positioned at 3 o’clock. The straps are black alligator stitched to black rubber – an Hublot signature – and feature yellow and blue stitching symbolic of both GGG’s native Kazakhstan and the colors he uses in his uniform.
