Perfect Timing: Usain Bolt and Hublot lap the field
In the race to create the greatest boutique in Miami’s Design District, Hublot pulled out the heavy artillery. AQ was at the finish line during Art Basel as the world’s fastest man and Hublot brand ambassador, Usain Bolt, helped celebrate the opening of Hublot Galerie, the brand’s 11th freestanding boutique in the United States.
But this boutique is unlike any other. It will be the first Hublot boutique to carry only Hublot’s most exclusive worldwide limited-edition timepieces. At the event, Hublot CEO Ricardo Guadalupe also presented Bolt with a generous donation to the Usain Bolt Foundation.
“We believe that the Design District is the future of Miami,” Guadalupe said. With its al fresco shopping mall and restaurants, it has become the coolest place to be. The Design District is very arty with its many galleries and Pop Art vibe. We therefore wanted to take inspiration from this and create a boutique with a new gallery-inspired design.”
“It doesn’t get better than Hublot,” Bolt added. “They are the icons of watchmaking. I’m proud to be a part of what they do.”
