Quick follow up to a story from last week and a chance to again mock white watches. Perpetuelle readers know that I am definitely a fan of Hublot and I give the brand more than its fair share of coverage here on the blog. But one thing I am not particularly a fan of is a white watch — for a man, that is. Hence my post last week mocking the Hublot white Oceanographic 4000 and the Breitling WhiteWater. By the way, for those of you who missed the joke — the photo of the dopey Jersey Shore guy wearing a white watch was your clue.
Anyway, when I saw that Hublot had gifted each player of the 2012 NBA Champion Miami Heat a Big Bang “White Hot” — I knew a gentlemanly line had been crossed. Although it is certainly a nice gesture from the hottest brand around, I must ask – would Hublot Chairman Jean-Claude Biver wear a watch like this? I highly doubt it. I guess that the only fortunate one was the NBA MVP Lebron James — an Ambassador for Audemars Piguet — he was noticeably absent from the Hublot White Hot handout. When it comes to white watches, please, ladies only.
