on

Breitling has announced that it will be teaming up with MR PORTER, the award-winning online destination for men’s style. MR PORTER will offer a curated selection of 31 timepieces from Breitling’s iconic product families. The partnership will begin with a special limited edition watch from the new Navitimer 8 collection.

Breitling has announced the launch of a very spe­cial timepiece to celebrate its new partnership with MR PORTER, a company that has established itself as the leader in online luxury retail for men. The Navitimer Aviator 8 B01 Chronograph 43 Limited Edition is part of the Navitimer 8 collection that Breitling introduced to great acclaim earlier in 2018.

Breitling CEO Georges Kern is looking forward to work­ing with MR PORTER, saying: “Breitling and MR PORTER share common values of quality, exclusivity, and an af­finity for exceptional products, which makes us proud to partner with the leading online retail destination for men’s style. This is an important step in Breitling’s omni­channel strategy and perfectly fits our digital vision to offer a unique brand experience to a broader audience around the globe.”

The Navitimer Aviator 8 B01 Chronograph 43 Limited Edition
The Navitimer Aviator 8 B01 Chronograph 43 Limited Edition will be produced in a series limited to 1000 pieces. Its beating heart is the Breitling Manufacture Caliber B01, which has been regarded by experts and enthusi­asts alike as one of the world’s finest mechanical watch movements ever since it was created. Like all Breitling watches, the Navitimer Aviator 8 B01 Chronograph 43 Limited Edition is a COSC­-certified chronometer.

This timepiece is a study in style, featuring an elegant silver dial and anthracite contrasting chronograph with small seconds subdials. Its cutting­edge move­ ment is visible through a transparent sapphire case­ back, while a distinctive satin­brushed bezel features indexes and Arabic numerals in addition to its practi­cal pointer. The watch is presented on a brown leather strap. The limited edition will be available exclusively from MR PORTER as of June 4, 2018. From July onwards, it will also be available in Breitling Boutiques and se­ lect Breitling retailers around the world.

A Strong Link to Breitling’s Aviation Heritage
The Navitimer 8 collection was inspired by the Huit Aviation Department, which was established by Willy Breitling in 1938. The division’s name was taken from the French word for “eight,” reflecting the need for cockpit instruments of the day to have an eight­day power reserve. Even then, Breitling had already estab­ lished itself as a leader in aviation instruments, a sta­tus it maintains to this day. The Navitimer 8 watches recall the design values of the Huit Aviation Department and one of Breitling’s truly iconic pilots’ watches, the Reference 768, whose rotating bezel and distinctive triangular pointer made it a favorite among aviators.

Toby Bateman, Managing Director of MR PORTER, is excit­ ed about his company’s new partnership with a brand whose new products reflect its great heritage: “We are thrilled to be launching Breitling, a brand that embod­fsta­ies craftsmanship and performance. Its recent rebirth within the watch industry has been very successful, making this the perfect time for this partnership, which will carry on the strategic growth of MR PORTER’s luxury watch category. Breitling’s newest watches – as well as its iconic timepieces – will be sure to resonate with our global customer base.”

Besides the limited edition, a curated selection of 31 timepieces from across Breitling’s iconic Navitimer, Superocean, Chronomat, and Professional families will also be made available on MR PORTER.

Hublot Becomes the Official Timekeeper of Porto Montenegro Marina and Yacht Club

Published

on

Yesterday in Porto Montenegro, Ricardo Guadalupe, CEO of Hublot, next to David Margason, Managing Director of Porto Montenegro, launched a strategic partnership that sees the Swiss luxury watch brand become Official Timekeeper and Official Watch of the superyacht marina and the Porto Montenegro Yacht Club.

On the ruins of a former arsenal, Porto Montenegro Marina and Yacht Club was erected less than 10 years ago by visionary men including LVMH Chairman and CEO Bernard Arnault, Jacob Rothschild and Canadian businessman and philanthropist Peter Munk. Located in the deep-water Bay of Kotor, boasting spectacular natural beauty, Porto Montenegro has quickly turned into a sophisticated haven for sailors from all over the world. Now boasting a fully-integrated marina with more than 450 berths, Porto Montenegro also features 290 luxury waterfront residences, a five-star hotel and a Yacht Club as well as over 50 retail units and dozens more projects in the development pipeline.

Relying on its nautical roots, Hublot has made a significant number of smart moves all along the Mediterranean coastline in the past few years. In 2007, the Swiss watchmaker set up one of its first boutiques within the walls of the legendary Hôtel Byblos in Saint-Tropez. Ten years later in 2017, Hublot launched the Classic Fusion Ibiza and the Classic Fusion Mykonos, and celebrated the opening of four directly operated Boutiques, adopting a nautical theme, in Cannes, Saint-Tropez, Capri and Porto Cervo. This year, only a few weeks after its Monaco Boutique opened, Hublot celebrates its partnership with Porto Montenegro, the latest “it spot” for Mediterranean lovers.

To seal this truly unique partnership, Hublot CEO Ricardo Guadalupe and 120 privileged guests gathered by Porto Montenegro Yacht Club infinity pool yesterday evening. In this magical setting, surrounded by the Adriatic’s blue waters, Hublot revealed the Classic Fusion Chronograph Porto Montenegro. To celebrate summer the new timepiece showcases the blue of the sky and the sea, its blue sunray dial is adorned with the Porto Montenegro logo at 3 o’clock as well as on the case-back. Powered by a self-winding movement, this limited edition comes with a blue rubber and calfskin strap. Made of titanium, its sleek case is an epitome of timeless elegance. Only 30 pieces are being released, now available at Excelsior, Hublot exclusive retailer in Porto Montenegro as well as all across Central Europe.
