Hublot amfAR Gala

Next week, February 8, 2012, HUBLOT will present the New York amfAR Gala at Cipriani Wall Street to kick off Fashion Week and hosted by Sarah Jessica Parker.
In addition, in honor of those who've led the global struggle against HIV/AIDS, HUBLOT will unveil a second, special edition collection of timepieces for women featuring the amfAR logo and its signature colorways. Proceeds will go on to support the foundation and its initiatives.

New York, NY (February 1, 2012) – Hublot, the luxury Swiss brand which brings the "Art of Fusion" to watchmaking, is proud to present the amfAR New York Gala on February 8, 2012 honoring those who have led the global struggle against HIV/AIDS. The black-tie benefit, which will be hosted by Sarah Jessica Parker, will feature special performances by Janelle Monáe and Theophilus London.
“We are excited to again join forces with amfAR in the fight against HIV/AIDS”, says Hublot chairman Jean-Claude Biver. “Our first amfAR men’s collection was very well received and we hope that these new women’s designs will bring us one step further in accomplishing the goal of a world without HIV/AIDS”.
To support amfAR’s goal and following the success of the men’s amfAR collection, Hublot has created a second limited edition collection of timepieces for women featuring the foundation’s colors and logo. It features a black ceramic case, a white mother of pearl dial, and a white gold bezel set with 48 baguette diamonds (it comes also with a steel bezel set with 114 circular diamonds for the non-limited edition). It houses a self-winding chronograph movement and a white alligator strap sewn on black rubber. As a commemoration to amfAR, the watch also features the foundation’s colors and logo at the 5 o’clock mark. As with the first collection, part of the proceeds will go to support amfAR.
The evening will feature a gala dinner, live auction, special performances, and honoree tributes. For this special occasion, Jean-Claude Biver and Hublot are pleased to announce the auction of the first timepiece 000/100 of the new Hublot amfAR collection engraved with the signature of amfAR Founding Chairman Dr. Mathilde Krim.
