Celebrating the Hublot Polo Gold Cup Gstaad

Sep 16, 2017

The Hublot Polo Gold Cup Gstaad emerged as one of the ideal events to celebrate the 70th anniversary of Ferrari

From August 17 to 20, Gstaad was transformed into Argentinian-style pampas, where 6,000 spectators felt the ground shake as 16 of the top Polo players on the circuit, all sporting the colours of the Hublot Polo Gold Cup, took to the fields creating a blur of hooves and mallets.

The tournament – a category 6 on the circuit – is one of the most prestigious in Europe, and for the first time, hosted four teams with a total handicap of 14. “Banque Eric Sturdza” beat “Riva” to secure overall victory.

As the tournament's Official Timekeeper, Hublot and its Classic Fusion Chronograph Chukker – a bi-compax chronograph – counted the 7.5 minutes of each of the 24 chukkers played during the competition.

The new Techframe Ferrari 70 Years Tourbillon Chronograph was the star in the Hublot x Ferrari pop-up store. Designed by Ferrari and produced by Hublot, the watch is conceived like a sports car, with its design based on the HUB6311 movement that features a chronograph tourbillon, 253 components, and a 115-hour power reserve, with an ultra-high-performance case/chassis built on a lattice structure never before seen in watchmaking.
