Early this month, Hublot held a grand opening ceremony for the brand’s newest boutique in China. The new space is located inside the high-end SKP mall in Beijing, where only the finest designer brands are found.
Once again, the Swiss watchmaker collaborated with the Bruce Lee Foundation for the “Be Water, My Friend – Legend of Bruce Lee Memorial Exhibition”, which was held from March 1st to 6th in SKP.
The philosophy-themed exhibition showcased cherished articles of clothing and mementos owned by the late Bruce Lee himself, as well as a number of limited edition Hublot timepieces.
Loic Biver, General Manager of Hublot Greater China, together with Shannon Lee, founder of the Bruce Lee Foundation and Bruce Lee’s daughter, Shannon Lee, cut the ribbon of the new store, and launched the Spirit of Big Bang Bruce Lee Be Water Limited Edition watch as a tribute to the Kung Fu superstar.
An amalgam of Hublot’s DNA and the spirit of the martial arts legend, the timepiece is inspired by the dragon pattern on Bruce Lee’s desk.
The in-house HUB4700 automatic winding skeletonized movement powers this unique watch, which comes with a 50-hour power reserve.
The Big Bang Bruce Lee Be Water Limited Edition watch features a tonneau case in all-black micro-blasted ceramic. Recalling Bruce Lee’s philosophy of water, the strap is created of blue alligator leather sewn on natural rubber.
Available in a limited edition of 100 pieces, this timepiece can be found at The Hour Glass, the proud exclusive retailer of Hublot in South East Asia.
