Hublot has a long affinity with summer. One look at its colourful past collections highlights the manufacture’s penchant for the warmer weather.

This European summer is no exception as Hublot has unveiled a heady trio of watches that are only available in a series of pop-up boutiques in Ibiza, Capri and St-Tropez.

Here, the Swiss manufacture has unveiled the Classic Fusion Aerofusion Chronograph Ceramic Blue Ibiza Boutique, the Big Bang Unico St-Tropez Boutique and the Classic Fusion Aerofusion Chronograph Ceramic Capri Boutique special edition timepieces.

Across the collection, blue — a certain inspiration from the beaches — is the featured colour.

The Big Bang Unico St-Tropez is limited to 30 pieces and echoes the colours of the Pampelonne beach. Here, the Unico V2 manufacture movement at Verde Beach for a full, uninterrupted 72 hours. The calibre HUB1280 boasts a slimmer design, results architecture and improved visibility and functionality.

The ceramic bezel, lined rubber strap, indices, numerals and hands are turquoise blue contrasting with the microblasted black ceramic while the sienna bell tower which overlooks the port is featured on the watch’s caseback. It is priced at $32,900.

Across the continent in Ibiza comes the Classic Fusion Aerofusion Chronograph Ceramic Blue Ibiza Boutique special edition. Hublot has opted to celebrate the festive bohemian spirit of Ibiza with a limited edition 50-pieces priced at $27,200. To celebrate the season and the Ibiza boutique Hublot welcomes its favoured material — coloured ceramic – to a magnetic blue chronograph.

Measuring 45mm in diameter, the HUB1155 self-winding chronograph movement and a power reserve of 42 hours. The piece in question is awash with the island’s vibrant blues and is strapped to the wrist via a blue alligator strap set off by white stitching and a white stripe.

Finally, the Classic Fusion Aerofusion Chronograph Ceramic Capri Boutique is inspired by the waters of Capri’s Grotta Azzurra and the contrast with the dark grey of the grotto and is limited to 50 pieces. The 45mm timepiece features a power reserve of 42 hours with the HUB1155 powering the watch and is water resistant to 50-metres — essential for exploring the grotto.  The limited edition is priced at $25,900.
