A glistening charity fundraiser to support people living with disability in Newcastle has raised more than £300,000. ROX and brand partner Hublot were thrilled to once again pledge their support to the Alan Shearer Foundation Ball on May 3 – with guests invited to enjoy an inspirational evening of music, laughter and friendship to raise money for the cause.
Hublot isn’t a brand that is scared of trying new things and that is clearly obvious with the new Hublot Big Bang Referee 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia connected watch. Just 2,018 lucky football fans will get their hands on the limited edition model.
Next year sees Chopard celebrating 30 years with Italy’s Mille Miglia rally – the longest-ever car/watch partnership and arguably the most meaningful. Alex Doak should know after all, as a watch expert who’s driven all thousand miles, from Brescia to Rome and back.
There’s no escaping Gucci’s charm. Exuding effortless style a Gucci watch as long been a staple of any watch collection. Renowned for creating timepieces that boast impeccable design and precision Gucci watches bring a touch of high fashion to the world of horology.
Congratulations are in order for Hublot ambassador Patrick Reed who held off stiff competition on the greens to claim his first major title win at the Masters at Augusta. Reed had been ahead since the second round of the competition managed to hold off competition from Northern Ireland’s Rory McIlroy and fellow Ryder Cup team mates Jordan Spieth and Rickie Fowler, winning on 15 under.
Baselworld 2018 will always be the year that Tudor stunned with its new Black Bay GMT. From the Pepsi coloured dial to the new GMT function, it’s one of the real standout models from the showcase. The new model, and in fact all of the new designs released at the annual watch extravaganza, offered a stark reminder that Tudor is a brand proud to create beautifully crafted timepieces that champion both style and reliability.
Bell & Ross has long been a brand on a mission. Since it was established in 1992 it has been proud to create timepieces that master the art of time and design for professional use. With that in mind the brand’s master watchmakers joined forces with aeronautical control panel specialists to create models designed with precision at the core of each.
We all know that Hublot isn’t a brand to stick to the status quo. So, when Baselworld comes around each March there’s no escaping the excitement in the air as we eagerly await the latest releases from the forward thinking brand.
If you’re a man proud to wear your style on your sleeve the chances are you probably already own a blue watch. The vibrant hue has been a dominating force in the world of Haute Horolergie recently, with blue dials and all-blue designs enjoying a moment in the spotlight. However, this Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore is about more than just stepping into the blue, it is an undeniable statement of style.
Paradoxically, women’s models are the ones that reach the highest heights: the recent BR S Diamond Eagle led women on a voyage to the stars. Like a miniature Milky Way on the wrist, its dark blue dial features the Aquila or Eagle Constellation formed by scintillating diamonds.
Think of the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore and a bold, masculine timepiece more than likely springs to mind. Since the Swiss brand unveiled the first Offshore model in 1993 it has unashamedly made a name for itself as a bit of a boys toy – and rightly so. It is a model that defied convention to create a truly staggering reputation as the bigger and brasher brother of the Royal Oak. As such, it’s little wonder that the gents designs tend to garner more column inches than the ladies. Well, all of that is about to change.
There is a reason that Audemars Piguet timepieces are amongst the most sought after in the world. Every single detail of an Audemars Piguet watch is practically perfect – crafted in-house to the finest degree, informed by almost 150 years of cutting edge horlogerie. Here we shine a spotlight on the latest Audemars Piguet models landing at ROX next week – don’t miss your chance to own a piece of horological history.
Think of Hublot and the first thing to spring to mind is more than likely the brand’s commitment to innovation. Not content with simply sticking within the confines of traditional watchmaking, it has proudly made waves in the world of Haute Horlogerie. The art of fusion is at the heart of the brand’s identity and the driving force behind truly unforgettable collections such as the Big Bang and Classic Fusion ranges.
Audemars Piguet’s men’s watches generally garner all the column inches but it takes just as much care and attention over its women’s collections, just with a little less fanfare. Words by Laura McCreddie-Doak.
The Royal Oak Offshore collection is a force to be reckoned with. Since it was launched in 1993 the collection has changed the face of watchmaking, taking Audemars Piguet timepieces to a level never before seen.
Think of Hublot and the brand’s bold designs are more than likely the first things that spring to mind. A champion of the Art of Fusion, the brand has continually taken strides to create truly remarkable timepieces that exceed expectation.
