According to the Home of Watches, the famous watch brand recently feared that Hublot opened its 70th boutique in Zurich, Switzerland. Zurich is by far the largest city in Switzerland and the richest city in Europe. This time Hublot’s choice to open a new boutique here also proves the brand’s strong strength from another aspect.

 On the same day that the boutique opened, Hublot launched a new website, Hublot.com. In addition to the brand’s fine watches, there are many brand football partners, including the famous ball king Bailey.

 At the same time, the Hublot brand also officially announced the invitation to Swiss football player Xherdan Shaqiri, namely Sheldan Shaqiri, to join the brand’s family.

 Sheldon Shakri was born in Gurnee, Kosovo, and has been playing in Switzerland since 1999. In 2001, he moved from Augst to Basel, where he eventually became a professional player through the youth league. In his first season in the Premier League, his first appearance was in a warm-up match against Uruguay in March 2010, and the team eventually lost 1-3. On the afternoon of February 9, 2012, the Bayern Club officially announced that it had reached an agreement on the transfer of Swiss teenager Shakri. The two parties signed the contract until the summer of 2016, and the Swiss genius will report this summer. The contract is from July 1, 2012 to June 30, 2016.

 Sakiri is only 1.69 meters tall, but he is extremely fast, has good feet and is good at creating threats on both sides. He has scored 4 goals and 4 assists in 24 games for Basel this season. Because of his outstanding performance at the club, 20-year-old Shaqiri has been a frequent guest on the Swiss national team under the leadership of German Heathfield. So far he has played 17 times for the national team and scored 4 goals. From the perspective of potential and existing capabilities, Shakri did not lose Royce.

 The boutique in Zurich perfectly interprets the new design concept of Hublot. The 70-square-meter store combines the characteristics of various materials in the design, including oak and wool carpets and the use of various silk fabrics. And embellishment of details.

 The main style reflects the use of materials in the sixteenth century, weakening the visual effects in cabinets and decorations, but it did strengthen the overall feel of the watch. A warm atmosphere is created with different lights, and modern furniture, especially handmade Italian leather sofas, also make the whole look noble and elegant.

Richard Mille Launches Two Limited Edition Watches To Commemorate The 10th Anniversary Of Cooperation With Philip Massa, And Congratulates Massa On The Podium Success In Austria

Felipe Massa finished third this week in Austria and is also the 40th time on his podium in his career. ‘Personally, this is an incredible moment, and it is the same for our entire team. Our team has a glorious past, and we will continue to create a glorious future. Today is significant.’ Philip Massa said. At the end of this year’s eight races, he temporarily ranked sixth in the Drivers’ standings with 62 points.
   The F1 driver from Brazil is the first player to join the Richard Mille sports star team. He has also been a Richard Mille watch test driver, helping Richard Mille achieve amazing achievements in the watchmaking industry. These include testing of the nano-carbon fiber base plate and Alusic alloy case. The nano-carbon fiber base plate was first used on RM 006 FM, and it was widely used in many Richard Mille watches. Alusic alloy case is only used in RM 009 FM.
   Richard Mille and Philip Massa formed a deep friendship in the cooperation. This time, in preparation for the 10th anniversary, Richard Mille specially customized the ’10th Anniversary’ watch series for Philip Massa, including two timepieces-RM 056 and RM 011.
   The RM 056 watch embodies Richard Mille’s most exciting patent innovations, cutting-edge technologies that have a reputation in the fine watchmaking industry. The entire RMCC1 movement is made of grade 5 titanium alloy, and the number of single parts has reached more than 500. This chronograph chronograph movement is undoubtedly one of the most delicate movements in watchmaking. At the same time, this tourbillon movement is also equipped with power reserve, torque display function and a function selector. Just as Philip Massa’s spirit of continuous improvement in the field of racing, the engineers of Richard Mille, who are constantly improving, are constantly improving the movement, carefully adjusting the timing accuracy, and reducing the friction to improve the tracking performance, ensuring the movement is stable for a long time.
   The case of the watch is cut from a single piece of sapphire. After years of research and testing, the cutting process has finally reached the best standard that combines comfort and durability. Regardless of design or technology, this process needs to overcome unprecedented challenges: the processing of sapphire is extremely complicated, and each case takes about 1,000 hours, of which the bezel, main case and bottom case need 430 hours Cutting process and 350-hour polishing process. Therefore, despite the many imitators of this technology, it is still far from Richard Mille.
   Another timepiece in the ‘Tenth Anniversary’ watch series is RM 011. It is named after Philip Massa, and you can see the core idea behind it. RM 011’s movement RMAC1 is Richard Mille’s first flyback chronograph automatic movement. The movement is made of grade 5 titanium alloy, hand polished, and equipped with an annual calendar, a 60-minute flyback timer and a countdown function. The case is made of NTPT® carbon fiber, which is highly resistant to corrosion and unique in shape, which is even more significant for Richard Mille.
   These superb watchmaking skills complement Massa’s own brilliant achievements. In his 13-year racing career, Massa has participated in 218 races, achieved 16 pole positions, 40 podiums, 11 of which won the Grand Prix championship and won a total of 1,012 points (including (3rd place recently in Austria in 2015). He spent most of his career at Ferrari (now with Williams), second in team history and fourth in history.
   The design of the RM 056 and RM 011 is inspired by Philip Massa’s racing color scheme. The collar, pad printing, buttons and crown are decorated in blue or yellow, and the driver’s personal logo is cleverly placed at 1 o’clock. The RM 011 watch sapphire dial cleverly uses Philip Massa’s car number ’19’ instead of the original 12 o’clock. The caseback is engraved with his personal signature, which is also a highlight of this watch.
   The core of the ’10th Anniversary’ watch series is ‘exclusive’. RM 056 is limited to 10 pieces, while RM 011 is limited to 100 pieces.
