    Hublot Unveils Worlds First Pop-Up Store In Singapore
    Kicks Off The Singapore Formula One Grand Prix Festivities
    With A Big Bang!

    SINGAPORE, 14 September 2012 BIG BANG, the world‟s first Hublot pop-up store has
    been unveiled at the main atrium of Paragon Shopping Mall in the heart of Orchard Road
    today. Collaborating with leading Singapore design extraordinaire, Mr Chris Lee of Asylum,
    the pop-up store is a colossal structure that fuses art and functionality, inspiring a design that
    pulsates with the energy of Hublot.

    The Hublot pop-up store will run for ten days from 14 September to 23 September to
    coincide with the Singapore Formula One Grand Prix which runs from 21 23 September.
    Commented Mr Ricardo Guadalupe, CEO of Hublot, As the Official Watch of the FIA
    Formula One Grand Prix, Hublot is set to develop and present one of the most inspiring and
    novel projects in a form of a pop-up store in a highly sophisticated country like Singapore to
    kick off the Singapore Formula One Grand Prix. We hope that the celebrated Hublot pop-up
    store will not only add a unique shopping experience to the exciting night race in Singapore,
    it will also be a platform to unite all Hublot and Formula One fans from all over the world to
    meet in one place.

    The Hublot pop-up store will showcase for the first time in Singapore, the most
    comprehensive and exciting range of Hublot‟s prized limited editions and collection totalling
    an astounding value of around US$20 million.

    This includes the famous US$5 Million Big Bang, which is touted to be the most expensive
    timepiece in the world. Together with its other illustrious family members such as the $1.2
    Million Big Bang and Baby Million Bang, the royal million trio will be audaciously presented
    in a totally open showcase for an unadulterated view of the stunning bejewelled

    In addition, a full range of Hublot inspired lifestyle gears like the All Black Carbon Fibre
    Bicycle, All Black Skis, All Black Carbon Fibre Arm Chair, etc will also be presented at the
    pop-up store.

    The Hour Glass is extremely proud and pleased to present the world‟s first Hublot pop-up
    store in Singapore. It not only marks the exceptional maturity and importance of the South
    East Asia market, in particular Singapore, it also celebrates The Hour Glass‟ strong
    partnership with Hublot for more than 30 years. This is certainly a landmark project which
    engineers a new dimension for Hublot in Singapore! commented Ms Wong Mei Ling,
    Managing Director of The Hour Glass Singapore.

    The Design Inspiration
    Taking advantage of the majestic void space in Paragon, Chris Lee has designed an art
    installation aptly entitled BIG BANG, which spans across two floors, sweeping impressively
    across the area. Tens of thousands of black gems rain down from above, creating an
    illusion of a store which has popped up, inviting a sense of excitement and wonder.
    I am very happy and honoured to be given the opportunity to create Hublot‟s first pop-up
    store in the world. I found the innovative and pioneering spirit of Hublot very inspiring and
    similar to my personal ethos in many ways. One which breaks the boundaries of creativity to
    forge new frontiers, says Chris Lee, Founder and Creative Director of Asylum.
    When asked about the inspiration and thinking behind the Hublot pop-up store concept,
    Chris Lee explains, The momentary quality of a pop-up store suggests an ephemeral,
    fleeting point in time caught in a still image. To illustrate the legacy of the Hublot brand and
    its innovations, Asylum seeks to recreate its notable paradoxical philosophy with an illusory
    space; magically solid yet porous and structurally monumental yet light.

    The Exclusive Offers
    A special Hublot Strap Bar is set up to offer an inimitable experience for existing Hublot
    owners to refresh and individualise their Hublot timepieces. This is the first time Hublot
    owners will be able to view and make their choice of straps from over 150 different styles
    and colours.
    To celebrate the occasion, an additional 2-year international warranty will be offered for all
    Hublot watch purchases during the period of the pop-up store.
    Duration: 14 23 September 2012
    Time: 10am 9pm; daily
    Venue: Main Atrium, Paragon Shopping Mall
    290 Orchard Road, Singapore
