On 11th May 2019 in Malibu, US, Swiss luxury watchmaker Hublot unveiled its third limited-edition timepiece and first dedicated women’s timepiece in partnership with Best Buddies International, a nonprofit founded in 1989 by Anthony Kennedy Shriver to establish a global volunteer movement that creates opportunities for one-to-one friendships, integrated employment, leadership development, and inclusive living for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, as well as the Women’s Alzheimer’s Movement (WAM) founded by Maria Shriver.
The Classic Fusion Titanium Diamonds Best Buddies features Hublot’s classic 42mm ladies design with a full pave titanium case comprised of 366 diamonds, a blue rubber strap and a matching sunray satin-finished dial.
Additionally, the sapphire exposition case back features the iconic Keith Haring Best Buddies logo. The watch is limited to 100 pieces and is available for sale exclusively in the U.S. boutiques.
