A new lady strut into town in full elegance this Women’s Day, and we can safely say she definitely is “arm candy”. The Classic Fusion “Lady Dubai” is the latest special timepiece launched by Hublot and Ahmed Seddiqi & Sons. The lovely rainbow inspired watch is an ode to women, and especially, to “the forward-thinking, fashion savvy ladies of Dubai,” as described by Marco Tedeschi, Regional Director Hublot Middle East & Africa, who was in Dubai to launch the watch with the brand’s Dubai partners.
At the press launch event on March 8, we walked through a mysterious tunnel swirling with vibrant, colourful animations, and came upon the “Lady”, peacefully sitting in a hologram, waiting to be discovered. “Lady Dubai”’s design is quite representative of Hublot’s “Art of Fusion” essence: a simple Classic Fusion shape with a blue alligator strap matching the blue, sunray satin-finished dial, rendered more valuable by an 18K King Gold case and bezel, enhanced with red spinels, orange sapphires, yellow sapphires, tsavorites, blue sapphires and amethyst. The “neige” random cut of the coloured semi-precious stones adds a quirky feel to the watch, and we had the chance to place a stone on the bezel with a gemstone setter at the event, experiencing Hublot’s link between tradition and innovation.
From the success we witnessed of the previous Hublot Dubai editions and quick sell of both men’s and women’s limited pieces, we highly suggest you snag one of the only thirty Lady Dubai pieces very soon!
