This year has been grand for Hublot and its partner Ferrari; the Italian car maker celebrated its 70th anniversary, and the Swiss watchmaker was there keeping time every step of the way with new watch launches, special events and activities. With 2017 close to its end, and the last Formula 1 race of the season taking place on Abu Dhabi‘s Yas Island, Hublot celebrated in true “first, different and unique” fashion with its partners, clients and friends aboard the Hublot Okto Yacht. The lavish vessel, which was Yas Marina’s only all black yacht, took on the brand’s identity for a unique and unforgettable weekend in the presence of CEO of Hublot Ricardo Guadalupe, Friends of the Brand Arab Superstar Ragheb Alama; Lapo Elkann and Carlos Fuente Jr.; international celebrities Rick Ross, French Montana and Tyrese, and others.
The vibe on board was stellar: nonstop joyful music from famous DJ Pierre Ravan from midday till late night, surprise performances by Ragheb Alama and Rick Ross, an energizing mix of guests from around the world, and celebrity appearances! The view of the track was spot on from the yacht’s various decks, offering a thrilling race viewing experience. And as no hospitality experience is complete without food and drinks, a full gastronomy experience brought by Moët Hennessy and Four Seasons Hotels & Resorts sealed the deal.
“The atmosphere at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix is always exceptional! This year the GP coincides with the 70th anniversary of Scuderia Ferrari, so we decided to offer our customers, friends and partners a unique Hublot experience on our own Hublot Yacht,” said Ricardo Guadalupe, in between paddock and Scuderia Ferrari garage visits with Friends of the Brand.
At the on-board pop-up boutique, a large collection of Hublot novelties was on display, including the awesome brand’s latest collaboration with Ferrari, the Techframe Ferrari Tourbillon Chronograph which was unveiled earlier this year at Baselworld. The Techframe collection was created and designed by Ferrari, manufactured and produced by Hublot, and loved by all.
