Lang Lang Visits Hublot Watchmaking Workshop

On April 13, Nyon, Switzerland. Hublot, a famous luxury watchmaker, is proud to welcome the image ambassador from China, the pianist Lang Lang. As a superstar in the piano industry, Lang Lang has performed many times in the most prestigious concert halls, and he has a full schedule of more than 80 days in a year. This time around the world tour, Lang Lang chose to visit the Hublot Complex Watchmaking Workshop between the Basel and Leipzig concerts.
   Hublot CEO Ricardo Guadalupe personally received and explained to Lang Lang the process of making a watch in detail. This is also Lang Lang’s first appreciation of Hublot’s watchmaker’s craftsmanship. During the visit, Lang Lang was intrigued and quite talkative. He also raised many questions specifically for the watch worn by the concert (Big Bang series carbon fiber square gemstone watch).
   Later, Lang Lang went to Hublot’s complication watchmaking workshop, inspired by different themes, and improvised on the spot, including ‘Art of Fusion’, which Hublot particularly cherished.
   For perfect results, the piano in the complication watchmaking workshop is used for Langlang concerts. The watchmakers and VIPs participating in the live event were also delighted and deeply intoxicated by their outstanding performance. Based on the same passion for art, music and watchmaking are here.
   It’s no coincidence that I chose to perform in this workshop, because this is exactly the hub of Hublot’s complex functions, especially the assembly of the minute repeater movement. By turning the handle, the minute repeater can report the time and minute information, and its tone is unique and clear, pleasant and melodious, and it can be described as a model of fine watchmaking. At the 2014 Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève, Hublot won the ‘Best Timekeeping Award’ with a Classic Fusion Tourbillon Cathedral Minute Repeater watch .
