CLASSIC FUSION CHRONOGRAPH BOL D’OR MIRABAUD
A MEMORABLE EDITION
With challenging weather conditions, the latest edition of the Bol d’Or will be etched into our memories just like the limited edition unveiled by Hublot to mark this exceptional race.
Around 500 boats on a 125 km course. The Bol d’Or Mirabaud is the most important inland lake regatta in the world. The unpredictable winds of Lake Geneva make this a technical competition for both amateurs and experienced sailors. As the official timekeeper of the competition since 2013, Hublot has released a limited and numbered edition, the Classic Fusion Chronograph “Bol d’Or Mirabaud 2019” created specially for the 81st edition of the race. It takes the shape of a 45 mm polished satin titanium case topped with a screw-in bezel. The gray dial combined with the deep blue bicompax counters are reminiscent of the colors of the French-Swiss lake. This marine decor provides the background for the time information and the short-time measurement, all powered by the HUB 1143 caliber regulated to vibrate at a frequency of 28 800 oscillations per hour. The self-winding chronograph movement provides a power reserve of around 42 hours.
The case back is made of the same material as the case. It is stamped with the logo “Limited Edition 81NUM”. The watch comes with a blue rubber strap incorporating a gray technical fabric, which is fastened with a folding buckle for added security.
Limited to 81 pieces, the Classic Fusion Chronograph “Bol d’Or Mirabaud 2019” was awarded to the winners of the Bol d’Or Challenge, the Bol de Vermeil Challenge, and the ACVL-SRS Trophy.
