Hublot Named Seabourn Cruise Line’s Official Timekeeper
As seen on Twitter…..
Micky Arison, Chief Executive Officer of Carnival Corporation, the world’s largest cruise operator, and owner of the NBA’s Miami Heat sips some bubbly with Jean Claude Biver CEO, board member, and minority shareholder of Hublot, to seal the deal between Seabourn Cruise Line and Hubolt.
So what exactly is the buzz?
Digging a little deeper, I discovered that cruise visitors sailing on one of the six Seabourn ships will be kept abreast of the current ship’s time by means of handsome Hublot wall clocks. In addition to keeping the ship’s time, cruise guests looking for some retail therapy will have a chance to attend select trunk shows of Hublot timepieces on selected cruises.
“Hublot‘s distinctive porthole-styled timepieces are crafted with a commitment to innovation grounded in respect for tradition.” noted Seabourn’s president Richard D. Meadows. “They display a dedication to excellence and an attention to detail that resonates with Seabourn‘s mission. Our companies share a common goal – to be the very best at what we do.”
“This partnership is a story of friendship, a human story. It is about mutual great respect based on a shared passion for the sea, a love of sport and the quest for performance and excellence.” added Hublot’s Chairman of the Board Jean-Claude Biver. “Hublot and Seabourn share many core values. Hublot has always been close to the sea world, through its very name of course, which is the French word for a porthole, but also through prestigious partnerships such as with the Yacht Club of Monaco, the Monaco Oceanographic Museum and the Real Club Nautico de Palma to name just a few of them. Today, teaming up with Seabourn is an honor and forms a perfect extension.”
