A Hublot owner, who leaves his watch for a check-up, service or repair in a Hublot boutique (of which there are 49 worldwide to date) will be provided with a ‘courtesy watch’, loaned without charge for the time required.
The courtesy watch or ‘Atelier watch’ is a special model made of black composite, screws and crown in steel and with a quartz movement (small seconds, date). The watch is not for general sale, but lending it to customers ensures that the bond between customer and Hublot remains unbroken during the time that the owner can’t wear his own watch. An interesting question is how many Atelier watches will be returned, as this watch is more special than many ‘normal’ Hublot models.
