In order to pay tribute to ski queen Maria Rich, the brand ambassador who won the Olympic title and two world championships, Hublot has customized a brand new ‘Big Bang Snow Leopard’ Limited edition watch.
HUBLOT has always been closely related to alpine and skiing. Of course, on the one hand, because Hublot originates from Switzerland, the Swiss traditional culture is so deeply ingrained in its values; on the other hand, Hublot is more closely connected with the sports field globally. As early as October 2010, the ski queen Maria Leahy and Mr. Hublot, Jean-Claude Beaver and Ricardo Guadalupe, hit the spot.
Today, Hublot pays tribute to the brand ambassador, who is at the height of her sports career-the Olympic champion and two world champions-and has tailored her new ‘Big Bang Snow Leopard’ limited edition watch-using White ceramic, dial set with 8 yellow diamonds, limited edition of 50 pieces. On April 26, 2013, at the Basel Jewellery & Watch Fair, Hublot held a unique press conference, Maria Riche himself, Jean-Claude Beaver, Chairman of Hublot’s Global Board of Directors Mr. and Hublot CEO Ricardo Guadalupe attended the ceremony and unveiled this watch.
Maria Richie explained why she chose the ‘Snow Leopard’ series in particular: ‘Snow Leopard is my favorite animal because we have certain characteristics in common. It is lonely by nature, but it is brave and brave, exuding calmness and calmness. Power. Sadly, they are on the verge of extinction, and only a few survive today. I am very happy that Hublot has been able to create this snow leopard-inspired watch, named after me, and I am extremely proud ! ‘
HUBLOT has always had a very close relationship with competitive skiing. As early as 2011, Hublot has become the official timekeeper of the World Alpine Ski Championships in Garmisch-Partenkirchen. In addition, Hublot has always supported Switzerland’s world-class cross-country skier Dario Colonia, and has cooperated with Verbier Sport + (ski school and Télé Verbier), the Swiss Tourism Agency Zermatt and Coursjo. The Viller Ski School has established a partnership to encourage the generations of ski expertise to be passed on and to express its strong respect for the values of sharing and respect.
