For the eighth consecutive season, Hublot becomes the official timekeeper of the Bol d’Or Mirabaud. To mark the occasion, the Swiss luxury watchmaker reveals the new Classic Fusion Chronograph Bol d’Or Mirabaud and presented its new collaboration with Chef Jean-Edern Hurstel.
The Bol d’Or Mirabaud – the world’s biggest inland lake regatta, running between the two ends of Lake Geneva, from Geneva to Le Bouveret – is an ideal event for Hublot to showcase its ties with sailing. Around 500 boats will be on the start line for the 123-kilometer route. The hulls of the yachts cutting through the blue water of Lake Geneva have inspired the new Classic Fusion Chronograph Bol d’Or Mirabaud. A tricolor watch is made by a combination of gloss grey steel, matt black and deep navy blue.
The watch features a 45-mm black satin-effect ceramic case and topstitched technical fabric strap.
Furthermore, Hublot’s boutique in Geneva underwent a makeover for the summer season.
The Swiss watchmaker also celebrates the reopening of Le Floris restaurant. The new Le Floris by Jean-Edern Hurstel offers gastronomic-fusion food, a lounge bar and an elegant bistro area called “La Pinte” serving local specialties. Hublot now associates itself with this iconic establishment and with the talented Chef Jean-Edern Hurstel, a chef who has built his reputation through his career and also his unforgettable time on the French TV show “Top Chef”.
After working at four Michelin-starred restaurants under great chefs of French gastronomy such as Alain Ducasse and Alain Passard, he decided to broaden his horizons to Dubai, where he worked in several five-star hotels. Hurstel then returned to Paris, where he managed the opening of The Peninsula and become the youngest Executive Chef of a luxury hotel in France. He opened his own restaurant on the Champs-Elysées, Edern, and now the second Edern venue on the banks of Lake Geneva.
