[four_fifth_last]Hublot Opens Boutique in Osaka
Hublot is continuing its plan for world domination as the luxury watch brand has recently debuted a sophisticated new boutique in Osaka, Japan. The watchmaker’s 77th directly-operated location worldwide has been open to the public since May 14 and features the eye-catching Hublot logo throughout the lavishly decorated store.
The exteriors of the two-story shop are adorned with large black “H” brand monograms while a contrasting white Hublot logo makes the location visible for quite a distance. On the inside the second floor VIP room allows customers to enjoy an exclusive interactive shopping experience in a relaxed setting. The Osaka boutique will offer exclusive Hublot models for the Japanese market previously available only in the brand’s Osaka location. While choosing among the brand’s latest designs shoppers can admire the colorful pop art prints of Hublot watches on the walls.
The latest Hublot location is a perfect example of the brand’s motto “The Art of Fusion.”
Gold Edition Apple Watches Now Shipping
Attention Beyonce, Karl Lagerfeld and Katy Perry — those fancy new Apple Watches you’ve been wearing for the last few weeks just became much less exclusive. Customers who placed their orders with Apple back in April when the device initially went on sale are now finally starting to receive their gold Edition smartwatches.
Some Apple enthusiasts who pre-ordered have begun receiving emails containing shipping information with deliveries scheduled to begin on Saturday, May 23. That means we should be seeing more shiny gold Apple Edition models on fashionable wrists this week.
The Apple Edition is available in yellow gold or rose gold with prices ranging from $10,000 to $17,000. Small numbers of the new device have been sold at select luxury boutiques worldwide but not in Apple retail stores, at least not yet. Wonder if this luxury smartwatch can live up to the hype when viewed close-up?
