Hublot Big Bang King Power Arturo Fuente Luxury Watch Review

http://www.thewatchbox.com Arturo Fuente and Hublot are icons of the proverbial "good life." Upscale, refined, indulgent, both brands project a larger-than-life image to enthusiasts of the luxury lifestyle. Why not combine them? In 2012, Hublot and Arturo Fuente did precisely that. To mark the centennial of the Florida-based purveyor of Dominican-sourced luxury cigars, Hublot released an exclusive 100-unit run of Big Bang King Power Arturo Fuente Limited Edition. Cast in glorious Hublot King Gold, the King Power Arturo Fuente appears strikingly rich in person. Hublot's gold blend features a deep red tone that surpasses the merely "pink" or "rose" tones of many luxury watches. In conjunction with the tobacco colored matte dial and the Fuente-signature red highlights, the King Gold anchors one of the rare Hublot models that presents as elegant and extrovert in equal measure. Subtle references to the Fuente brand are present upon close examination, but they never become obtrusive and will not detract from the general appeal for non-smokers. Hublot continues the Arturo Fuente theme with a vast cut of brown hornback alligator leather bound to a natural rubber base. White contrasting thread articulates the dulcet earth tones of the strap and visually extends the highlights of the gold case. On the case back, Hublot honors 100 years of Arturo Fuente's family-owned company with a commemorative image of Carlos Fuente Sr. and his son Carlos Jr. The Hublot Big Bang King Power Arturo Fuente limited edition is offered through thewatchbox.com with full factory boxes, manuals, and commemorative documentation.
