Hublot unveil the “ForbiddenX” watch in Dubai

Dubai – 2nd December – After the immense success of the King Power “Arturo Fuente” unveiled in 2012, Hublot is today celebrating the international launch of the ForbiddenX watch in Dubai. Ricardo Guadalupe, CEO of Hublot, and Carlos Fuente Jr, grandson of the cigar factory’s founder, made the journey especially for this occasion, accompanied by Marco Tedeschi who represents Hublot in the Middle East.

They met for an exclusive event which brought Dubai’s greatest cigar connoisseurs and major watch collectors together at the One&Only The Palm hotel, where the ambiance of the famous Château de la Fuente was recreated for the occasion, with its distinctly Cuban flavour. Whilst enjoying music and cuisine evoking Old World Havana, the guests, all sporting their Hublot Panama hat and with a fine ForbiddenX cigar, were able to discover the watches developed in close collaboration with the Fuente family, who are very proud of their Cuban roots. A unique moment. Download Full Press Release and Specifications Here.

Helping kids in the Future belongs to Variety Tents who plan today

Thank you for joining us at the 2014 Variety International – the Children’s Charity World Conference to celebrate successes, share ideas and build Variety. We enjoyed seeing everyone live, laugh, and learn together. We lived by experiencing the many charms of Barbados, its rich culture and beautiful people.  We laughed with friends, both old and new. We learned how 2014 will be a year of growth and success from pertinent guest speakers, an in depth grants program session, and relevant breakout sessions. Together at the conference we communicated, cooperated and collaborated to enable every Variety tent that “little extra” to be extraordinary for the children and communities we support.

Special thanks to Variety of Barbados, VI Board, various committees and Mitch Harris for all your outstanding contributions and support to make this conference an affair to remember.
