Hublot and the Porto Cervo Marina have come together to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the iconic Costa Smeralda Consortium. It is 50 years ago that Prince Karim Aga Khan arrived in Sardania and initiated the process of turning it into a tourist destination for the international jetsetter by creating the Costa Smeralda Consortium. Hublot is celebrating the historic moment by creating two limited edition designs of exciting luxury watches. The King Power Costa Smeralda is for gentleman and the Big Bang Costa Smeralda is for ladies. They are both vibrant and sparkling watches that do justice to Costa Smeralda. They were specially created for the occasion and not revealed at Baselworld 2012.
The Watches Capture the Essence of Costa Smeralda
The limited edition watches were unveiled at a lavish event and an amazing party organized by the famous dala Di Volpe Starwood Hotel. The highlight of the evening was a lively performance by Sir Elton John that enthralled the attending guests and VIPs. Costa Smeralda has become the favorite spot of the elite and discerning individuals from around the world. Quality, beauty, prestige, happiness, relaxation and freedom are some of the concepts that describe the destination appropriately. Hublot has tried to capture the same sense through its design and craft. Costa Smeralda is located on the northern coast of the Italian Island of Sardania and it has become popular for its secluded coves and unrivalled beautiful beaches.
Only 100 Pieces of Each Watch will be Released
The best of French and Italian architects were commissioned to create the high end infrastructure at Costa Smeralda and that’s why it has sustained its position at the top as a destination preferred by the discerning travelers. Hublot unveiled the commemorative designs at the Starwood hotel. The Big Bang Costa Smeralda has a diamond set grill-like component on top of the bezel. The 18k red gold watch uses titanium screws to hold the self winding mechanism and is embellished with 319 diamonds weighing 1.49ct. The Costa Smeralda logo is printed on the mat white dial of the watch. The King power Costa Smeralda has a white and skeleton dial with the same logo printed on it. The watch comes with a white rubber and gummy alligator strap. The production run for both the designs will be limited to only 100 pieces.
