At the 66th Cannes International Film Festival just ended, the film ‘Destiny’ written and directed by Jia Zhangke won the best screenwriter award. The successful Chinese filmmaker once again rocked the European continent with the voice of China. Advocating individuality and witnessing success, the top Swiss watch brand HUBLOT Hublot watches applauded director Jia Zhangke for another successful career in his film career. Together with director Jia Zhangke, he never ceases to challenge himself, pay tribute to tradition, and create the future.
As one of the most active Asian directors on the international film scene, Jia Zhangke is not sticking to tradition and clinging to stereotypes, and is good at expressing and interpreting the realism of Chinese cinema to the world through a distinctive and innovative film language. “Advancing in a different way”, HUBLOT shares common values with Director Jia Zhangke, and has become the “most successful model of personality” in the world in their respective fields.
As early as 2010, Director Jia Zhangke has already connected with Hublot. He has a mastery of fashion and aesthetics. He chose Hublot’s classic fusion rose gold watch and appeared together in the bright sunshine of the Cannes Film Festival. Three years passed and Jia Zhangke’s unique film proposition and personality gained more expectations and respect. The return of the King of Cannes in 2013, Jia Zhangke’s new journey is ready to go. This time, witnessing the success of Director Jia Zhangke’s brilliant success is the “Classic Fusion Series Ultra-thin Hollow King Gold” watch independently developed and manufactured by Hublot.
It not only perfectly integrates the most discerning elements of Hublot’s dynamic design and modern materials. The design concept of completely hollowed out and unique artistic lines will make the watch’s internal structure-whether it is the adjustment part, balance wheel or escapement wheel, more clearly and intuitively displayed under professional eyes. This is also Hublot’s anti-traditional, first attempt to challenge the ‘thin’ limit: a 45mm diameter dial, equipped with Hubble’s own ultra-thin movement, only 2.90 mm thick. At 7 o’clock on the dial, a small seconds dial is set, and its hands continue the design style of the first-generation Hublot watches as a tribute to the history of Hublot watches. Hublot’s patented technology ‘Wang Jin’ adds 5% platinum to the melted gold, making it appear more rosy in gold. The power reserve of up to 90 hours and the excellent waterproof coefficient of normal operation under 50 meters of water allow the watch to accompany Director Jia Zhangke to calmly cope with various occasions.
Director Jia Zhangke said: ‘You can observe a phenomenon from different angles, which will bring different perspectives and thinking results. For the passage of time, I prefer to treat it with a vigorous attitude; There are many ways. Taking the watch as the medium is the silent but most personal way. It is not only a tool for recording time, but also a symbol of self-assertion. Hublot is full of enthusiasm and vitality that infect others. It fully reflects contemporary ‘uniqueness’, with personality and vision not found in traditional watches. ‘
Jia Zhangke’s award-winning work ‘The Destiny’ is expected to land on China’s silver screen in October this year. This alternative realistic film with unique artistry and perspective is about to sweep the film industry with its success and personality. HUBLOT Hublot wished Director Jia Zhangke more brilliant achievements in the journey of artistic exploration!
