Hublot is a Swiss lux­ury watch­maker founded in 1980 by Ital­ian Carlo Crocco and it rep­re­sents the

Art of Fu­sion in watches. With this in mind, Hublot loves bring­ing like-minded in­di­vid­u­als to best rep­re­sent the brand in their own fields.

Wear­ing just jeans, train­ers and a black apron, An­dreas Cam­i­nada met Ri­cardo Guadalupe in Fürste­nau, a small vil­lage in Europe. This cook­ing prodigy is a coun­try­man who works with lo­cal pro­duce, grows some of it and has val­ues in line with the ab­so­lute watch­mak­ing pre­ci­sion. An­dreas takes a lik­ing for the sim­ple and nat­u­ral things in life. As an in­ter­na­tional ref­er­ence, he be­came the youngest chef in Europe to have won a third Miche­lin star. His skills com­bined with au­dac­ity, in­no­va­tion and tra­di­tion makes him the ul­ti­mate rep­re­sen­ta­tion of tal­ent, spirit, de­ter­mi­na­tion and pas­sion.

“The culi­nary art in­spires dreams and in­duces pro­found emo­tions. You need a tough mind, iron­clad courage and a cre­ativ­ity that rein­vents it­self day af­ter day. Un­lim­ited ded­i­ca­tion, friend­ship

and pas­sion are essential in­gre­di­ents for of­fer­ing each and ev­ery diner a unique and un­for­get­table ex­pe­ri­ence. Our part­ner­ship with Hublot sees two dy­namic teams brought to­gether through shared val­ues and their will to con­tinue break­ing new bar­ri­ers in or­der to al­ways in­no­vate,” shared An­dreas Cam­i­nada, Miche­lin 3-starred chef.

The small vil­lage lo­cated in the Grisons can­ton ap­peared to be at a stand still.

This place lives and breathes “Swis­si­tude” held dear by the watch­maker. An­drea’s cas­tle in Fürste­nau speaks vol­umes on the phi­los­o­phy that pre­oc­cu­pies him. The build­ing helps re­tain the as­sets of its history while find­ing new life through the fea­tures of its re­fined and highly con­tem­po­rary in­te­rior. Sim­i­larly to his dishes, it is paced like the dial of a watch, where each in­gre­di­ent has a func­tion yet it en­gages one another to of­fer an ex­plo­sion of unique taste.

By pool­ing both tal­ents, An­dreas and Hublot are pre­par­ing to bring to life a menu that com­posed of sur­pris­ing and au­da­cious cre­ations.

Ri­cardo Guadalupe, CEO of Hublot shared,” It is no se­cret that I’m an epi­curean. I like beau­ti­ful things. I like fine things. So, when I dis­cov­ered An­dreas Cam­i­nada’s cui­sine and when I met him, I was struck by the ob­vi­ous­ness and sim­plic­ity of his ap­proach. The way in which he makes gas­tron­omy less com­pli­cated whilst im­bu­ing it with even more no­bil­ity. A real char­ac­ter, a man, who is an ob­vi­ous choice and who per­fectly em­bod­ies all that brings to­gether that friends of the brand and the val­ues that we up­hold day af­ter day: ex­cel­lence, pas­sion, the de­sire to leave a mark, to per­pet­u­ate knowl­edge, to take plea­sure in all that we do – whether this is through sport, art, or our vo­ca­tion – to trans­mit plea­sure and to make oth­ers want to sur­pass them­selves. Quite sim­ply, an in­spi­ra­tional char­ac­ter”.

bas­ket­ball to­gether. “I’ve wit­nessed for my­self what the pos­i­tive en­ergy sport can un­leash in many of the Lau­reus projects. We are proud to sup­port this foun­da­tion; it is a co­op­er­a­tion that al­lows us to bring about last­ing changes in the lives of thou­sands of chil­dren and ado­les­cents,” ex­plains Christoph Grainger-Herr, the new CEO of IWC Schaffhausen.

As part of its ef­fort to spread the word about its val­ues, IWC or­gan­ised a bike tour with the FOR­MULA ONE world cham­pion Nico Ros­berg, dou­ble Olympian cham­pion cy­clist Fabian Can­cel­lara and Iron­man World Cham­pion Jan Fro­deno. The 30km ride were also tra­versed by ex­treme cy­clist Pa­trick Se­abse, Na­dine Rieder, Sofia Wieden­roth and Mor­gane Such from the AMG Rotwild Moun­tain­bike Rac­ing Team.

The Lau­reus foun­da­tion recog­nises new ath­letes each year that help raise aware­ness for its projects. This year, three for­mer ath­letes are ac­cepted into its cir­cle which now in­cludes 61 sport­ing leg­ends: Swiss cy­clist Fabian Can­cel­lara, Dutch foot­baller Ruud Guilt and Scot­tish track cy­clist Sir Chris Hoy. Each of these mem­bers also re­ceived a Da Vinci Chrono­graph Edi­tion “Lau­reus Sport for Good Foun­da­tion” from IWC CEO Christoph Grainger-Herr in Monaco.

The time­piece fea­tures a me­chan­i­cal chrono­graph move­ment, self wind­ing IWC­man­u­fac­tured 89361 cal­i­bre, date dis­play, stop­watch func­tion with hours, min­utes and sec­onds, fly­back func­tion, small hack­ing sec­onds and back en­grav­ing de­pict­ing the win­ning pic­ture in the “Time Well Spent” draw­ing com­pe­ti­tion, just to name a few. There are only 1,500 of such watches in the world.
