Hublot, timing the economic development cycles together with Goldman Sachs and Citigroup

At the end of last year, Hublot has just opened its first brand store in Manila, the Philippines – its 58th boutique in the world. The giant leap made by the Swiss watchmaker has been taken in partnership with Lucerne Jewellers and, in order to celebrate the 30 years history of its joint venturer into the South-Eastern Asia islands, it has decided to launch the stunning King Power Oceanographic 4000 Special Edition Lucerne 30th Anniversary.

It is also in 2012 that Hublot has gained another footing in Asia, more precisely in Mongolia, at Ulan Bator.

Now, what do the two formidably far away countries have in common with Switzerland and, at the same time, with the any equally unrelatable luxury epicentre is, apparently, Hublot. And as far as the LVMH brand’s motivation goes, the reasons behind the move of the $5 million’s artisan are to be revealed only over time. More precisely, sometime during the next 40 years.

Goldman Sachs estimates that, by 2050, the Philippines are to surge into the world’s 14th largest economy, while Mongolia is appraised by Citigroup to be among the leading Global Growth Generators 2010-2050.

So it appears that Hublot in not merely an exceptional watches craftsmaker, but also an inspired visionary. Or might it be only a careful and thoughtful markets and economic analyst?
