The party featured a cocktail hour, a dinner prepared by Zuma’s famed chef, Michael Lewis, an award presentation by Haute Living magazine to beauty mogul and icon, Loren Ridinger, the official unveiling of the timepiece, free-flowing Dom Perignon champagne and an after party on Ridinger's private yacht, Utopia II.
During the dinner, Rick De La Croix, representing Hublot in the Americas, unveiled the new collection and presented Ridinger with a custom timepiece after she received Haute Living’s Woman of Substance Award from Haute Media Group’s CEO, Kamal Hotchandani. Ridinger, who was also celebrating a birthday, watched recorded birthday wishes from Jamie Foxx, Eva Longoria, Ken Paves and Khloe Kardashian. Music and entertainment for the night were provided by special guests Michelle Pooch and Miami Heat DJ, DJ Irie.
An impressive list of guests attended the event, including celebrities and special Hublot clients, such as: Gabrielle Union, Nikki and Mike Simkins, Michelle and Jason Rubell, Shannon Allen, wife of Miami Heat’s Ray Allen, Jenine Howard, wife of Miami Heat’s Juwan Howard, Michelle and Tommy Pooch, Kamal Hotchandani, Adrienne Bosh, wife of Miami Heat’s Chris Bosh, Mary and Cliff Floyd, Larsa Pippen, The Real Housewives of Miami, Christy and David Martin, Antonio Misuraca, Martin Fuentes, Jacky Bracamontes, and more.
Based on the iconic design of Hublot’s one million dollar Black Caviar, and directly inspired by the black ceramic Big Bang Black Caviar timepiece, the two Big Bang Caviar “Lady 305” timepieces sport a sleek, graphic look with sharp angles and reliefs designed, cut, beveled and polished like their big sister's black baguette diamonds. The ocean blue of the Big Bang Caviar “Lady 305” timepiece evokes the sand, sun and sea of South Florida. The 41 mm-diameter watch features a bezel set with 36 topazes, and the solid case-back is engraved with a view of Miami’s South Beach with the famous “305” area code. A strap made of blue alligator sewn onto black rubber completes the watch, providing comfort, flexibility and resistance.
The two limited edition timepieces are exclusively available at the Hublot Bal Harbour Boutique, in Miami. Hublot opened its first U.S. store in Bal Harbour, FL, in September 2010 and has since partnered with a variety of celebrities, charities and sports teams, including the Official Watch of the Champions Miami Heat and their captain, Hublot Brand ambassador, Dwyane Wade.
