Sberro commemorated the evening by raising his glass to the group of friends and collectors, thanking them all for joining Hublot for this monumental occasion. “Hublot embodies the Art of Fusion. And tonight I think we have the perfect representation of that because we are combining the world of watchmaking, the world of Champagne with Veuve Clicquot, the world of polo with Nacho Figueras and the world of Japanese cuisine with chef Nobu Matsuhisa.”
