Porto Montengro has been considered one of the world’s most desirable superyacht hubs for many years now, and as its reputation has grown luxury brands have increasingly been a visible presence at the luxury yacht homeport and marina village in Tivat.

Now world renowned Swiss watch brand Hublot are to further enhance this trend after being confirmed as the Official Timekeeper of the superyacht marina and Porto Montenegro Yacht Club for a two-year period. 

To mark the occasion, Hublot has launched a Porto Montenegro limited edition of their Classic Fusion Chronograph in nautical blue for summer 2018. The 45mm diameter titanium case features a blue sunray dial with the Porto Montenegro logo on the chronograph timer sub-dial at 3 o’clock, as well as the sapphire glass case back.

Inside, the watch is powered by a Caliber Hublot HUB1143 self-winding movement with a 42hr power reserve and is supplied with a blue rubber and calfskin strap.

Only 30 pieces are being released, now available at Excelsior, a Hublot exclusive retailer in Porto Montenegro as well as all across Central Europe.

 Ricardo Guadalupe, CEO of Hublot, said: “Hublot has become a key player on the Mediterranean coastline, dropping anchor in historical harbours such as Cannes, Saint-Tropez, Monaco, Capri and Porto Cervo as well as in more intimate havens like Porto Montenegro.

“Hublot again demonstrates its capacity to constantly renew itself while respecting its own proud history and tradition. The classic fusion Porto Montenegro is the fusion of these core beliefs.”

 “This exciting new partnership unites the watchmaking and timekeeping expertise of Hublot with our exclusive marina lifestyle community,” added David Margason, Managing Director of Porto Montenegro.

“We are delighted to welcome Hublot onboard and look forward to collaborating with them on our extensive calendar of Yacht Club regattas and social events”.
