The Swiss luxury watch brand HUBLOT held a grand opening ceremony on March1st, 2016 to celebrate its new SKP Beijing boutique. Located inside the high-end commercial landmark in Beijing, SKP, the boutique represents another milestone for HUBLOT in the Chinese market.
Meanwhile, the watch brand joins hands once again with the Bruce Lee Foundation to hold the "Be Water, My Friend- Legend of Bruce Lee Memorial Exhibition” from 1stto 6thMarch 2016 in Beijing SKP. The Bruce Lee philosophy-themed exhibition displays precious items that Bruce Lee owned himself, as well as a variety of HUBLOT limited edition timepieces.
Loic Biver, General Manager of Hublot Greater China, together with Shannon Lee, founder of the Bruce Lee Foundation and Bruce Lee’s daughter, cut the ribbon of the new store, and launched the Spirit of Big Bang Bruce Lee Be Water Limited Edition as a tribute to the Kung Fu superstar .
The legend of Bruce Lee Memorial Exhibition
For the Be Water My Friend--the legend of Bruce Lee Memorial Exhibition, HUBLOT invited the Bruce Lee Foundation to display precious items from Bruce Lee’s personal life, and participated in the exhibition design.
The exhibition displays personal items belonging to Bruce Lee. They include a Tang-style Kung Fu jacket that carries the martial arts spirit of Bruce Lee, a genuine copy of the “Way of the Dragon” script, a replica of the life mask of Kato in “The Green Hornet“, and the business card for the Bruce Lee Martial Arts Studio founded by Bruce Lee.
Bruce Lee’s legacy is not limited to the martial arts, but also ideas and philosophy. This is one of the reasons why people still respect him as a martial artist and philosopher. Bruce Lee explained the Jeet Kune Do philosophy that he had created as a process of exploration, self-discovery and the growth of a soul. Hublot believes in the natural forces that come from the natural energy of the universe. The creation of Big Bang watches was born from precisely this idea. In exploring the fusion concept between minerals and phytochemicals, Hublot focused on time, expanding watchmaking philosophies. The art of fusion does not only occur in the above two areas, the fusion of sky and the earth, the fusion of tradition and innovation also occur all the time.
