HUBLOT launches yellow gold
Presentation at the “Bal de Noël de Monte-Carlo” (Monte Carlo Christmas Ball) opening the winter season on The Rock.
Behold the yellow gold rush. Having made a major global comeback in fashion and haute couture, Hublot is now bringing it to the world of watchmaking. Brilliant, powerful, symbolic, the total Yellow Gold look, based on an idea by Tina Zegg and Carlo Cerlati. Presenting the “BIG BANG HUBLOT ZEGG & CERLATI YELLOW GOLD”.
Embracing the monochrome concept beloved of Zegg & Cerlati, and following on from the two models in pink gold and steel created using the same concept, which met with great success last summer, this chronograph, which features an 18K gold case, a tone-on-tone mirror-polished dial and a brilliant yellow gold-coloured tone-on-tone calfskin strap, was unveiled on the 7th December in the presence of Tina Zegg and Carlo Cerlati in Monaco, for the prestigious “Bal de Noël de Monte-Carlo” (Monte Carlo Christmas Ball).
Under the high patronage of HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco, and adopting a Yellow Gold & White Christmas theme celebrating the splendour of a white Christmas shot through with gold, the prestigious Empire Room of the Hotel de Paris was festooned with a thousand decorative lights to entice guests into the magic of Christmas. During the ball, a number of chosen guests were invited to attend an auction by Sotheby’s in aid of Action Innocence Monaco, as well as a prestigious tombola. Andrea T Mendoza, resident DJ at the Billionaire Club, set the dance-floor alight.
A fusion of fashion and Haute Horlogerie craftsmanship, this limited edition of just 50 watches was created exclusively for Zegg & Cerlati boutiques, Place du Casino in Monte-Carlo, Ischgl in Austria and Samnaun in Switzerland.
