Hublot's 50th Anniversary Gift to Costa Smeralda

  By TEAM TNS   Aug 2nd 2012 at 6:00AM Watches RATED

In the north-east section of Sardinia, the second largest island of the Mediterranean, lies Costa Smeralda. This picturesque location, home to some of the world's best beaches, has been a haven for sun-lovers from the very start.

Swiss watchmaker Hublot joined in the 50th Costa Smeralda Consortium’s celebration by presenting the Costa Smeralda Collection. Comprising two limited edition watches, this collection with its use of materials and juxtaposition of colours, is luxurious yet sporty.


The Big Bang Costa Smeralda, which is one of the two watches in this collection, is reminiscent of the Chukker Bang owing to the grill-like component atop the bezel. Set with 319 white diamonds, this 18 carat red gold component is removable, depending on the owner's preference. The 41-mm 18 carat red gold casing of this watch, houses a self-winding, flyback movement. The matte white dial along with the white rubber and alligator strap perfectly complement the red gold components. The Big Bang Costa Smeralda has a power reserve of 42 hours.


Featuring an open-worked skeleton dial is the King Power Costa Smeralda, which is the second watch in this collection. While most other qualities of this timepiece are similar to the Big Bang Costa Smeralda, one can easily notice the larger casing of the King Power Costa Smeralda and a slightly raw feel, as compared to the Big Bang Costa Smeralda.

A distinctive feature in both of these timepieces is the Porto Cervo Marina logo at the three and nine o'clock positions in the above mentioned watches. Limited to 100 pieces each, this collection is symbolic of the coveted position enjoyed by Costa Smeralda.
