The Grand Opening of the Hublot Boutique in St. Maarten was held on the evening of December 9, 2010 with a ribbon cutting ceremony.
This inauguration marks the 29th Hublot exclusive boutique worldwide. Located in Phillipsburg on the beautiful Harbour of St. Maarten, this Hublot Flagship store expresses perfectly the brand’s “Art of Fusion” philosophy, with an ingenious combination of steel, carbon fiber, aluminum and singular alloys with wood, leather, rubber and glass. The design as a whole features a contemporary look and atmosphere for a unique retail experience.
Founded in 1976 on the Dutch side of St. Maarten, Little Europe is still a family owned business, which has developed a solid partnership with the Hublot Brand. Charles Taylor, Director of Hublot in the Caribbean mirrored the Hublot philosophy of the opening: “We cannot build the strategy for an enterprise without the durability and equanimity of our long-standing partners. I send our special thanks, in particular to the Directors of Little Europe, as well as to the Hublot team in Miami and Geneva involved for their commitment, and for this magnificent boutique dedicated to Hublot”
Mr. Jean-Claude Biver, CEO of Hublot: “Each new opening reflects the great vitality and impressive expansion of HUBLOT, with every month seeing the inauguration of new exclusive locations in the most prestigious settings around the world. With the forthcoming and recent exclusive openings in Aruba, Beverly Hills, Bal Harbour, Boca Raton, and New York, HUBLOT has never been as strong and as dynamic as today. This tremendous success is the result of creativity and innovation, and a long-term loyal relationship with our partners such as Little Europe, which I would like to congratulate and thank for their efforts towards the opening of this Flagship Store and for their long time involvement with Hublot.
