Hublot and Cheval Blanc Randheli unveiled their latest collaboration, a new Hublot’s Classic Fusion special edition.

Cheval Blanc Randheli, the intimate and lavish Cheval Blanc Maison in the Maldives’ idyllic Noonu Atoll, is a haven of art de vivre in a welcoming and convivial atmosphere, with a dedicated, personalized service. This new timepiece is a tribute to the colours surrounding the atoll, where the ocean’s dark blue contrasts beautifully with the limpid turquoise of the lagoon, all a reflection of the clear blue skies above.

Hublot writes a new page in its history, lending its talents to the service of creation and expanding its know-how in order to create the dial using sand. The brand commissioned Parisian artist Vincent Beaurin, designer of the signature works of art at the Cheval Blanc Maison in the Maldives, to conceive the new creation. This collaboration follows the successful launch of the 2016 Special Edition: a perfect illustration of the savoir-faire of the Swiss watch manufacture and its constant quest for new fusions between time, art and luxury.

“Just like the blue waters surrounding Cheval Blanc Randheli, the captivating blue tones of the two new timepieces dedicated to the Maison create an appealing aura on the wrist, offering wearers a new experience with time,” says Ricardo Guadalupe, CEO of Hublot.

Art is held dear by both Hublot and Cheval Blanc. The works of Vincent Beaurin have graced the walls of Cheval Blanc Randheli since its opening, an expression of a true creative identity. He wanted “in this incredible landscape, to open his arms, to embrace and contemplate the vastness.” “The watch tells time and dilutes it in the colours of the crystal-clear waters of the Noonu Atoll,” explains Vincent Beaurin.

Olivier Lefebvre, Head of Hotel Activities, LVMH Hotel Management, shares: “This watch is an illustration of the art de vivre and creativity so characteristic of both brands. This approach reflects a tailor-made dialogue between Hublot, the artist and Randheli’s unique universe. Time stops at Cheval Blanc.”

The Classic Fusion 45mm Cheval Blanc Randheli Special Edition and Classic Fusion 38mm Cheval Blanc Randheli Special Edition are only available at the Cheval Blanc Randheli Concept Store, in the dedicated Hublot area that reflects the identity of the most iconic Hublot boutiques around the world.
