Last Wednesday, September 26, 2012, Hublot celebrated the unveiling of its new, limited edition Hublot King Power “305” Timepiece at the W South Beach Hotel & Residences. 305 being the area code of downtown Miami area. In a sign of just how popular Hublot has become amongst professional athletes and the look-at-me crowd, the launch party had quite a roster of attendees. The event featured DJ Irie, a 30-foot video wall, free-flowing Dom Perignon champagne, and an official unveiling by top Hublot representatives including Rick De la Croix (President, Americas) and Ricardo Guadalupe (CEO). Also in attendance were Heat players Dwyane Wade, Alonzo Mourning, Mario Chalmers, Udonis Haslem, Joel Anthony, Norris Cole, Juwan Howard, & James Jones; actress Gabrielle Union, Lisa Hochstein, Real Housewives of Miami; NFL’s Jeremy Shockey; musical artists Rico Love and Rick Ross; DJ Irie; Ken Gorinowner of The Collection and more. Limited to just 40 pieces (either bling or non-bling), I am sure that the Hublot Miami 305 watch will fit in well on South Beach.
