Don’t you just hate it when you put on your jeans, your denim button-up shirt, denim jacket, denim Converse, denim hat and have no idea where else you can throw in more denim?
Fret no longer, my dear Denim Dans of the world, because Hublot has produced a collection of “Jeans” watches. But I’ll be honest, anyone who wears denim from head to toe probably won’t like these watches as they are actually incredibly stylish. Also, you wouldn’t expect Hublot to throw go to Walmart and buy Wranglers for the material, right? Of course not. The denim that Hublot uses is made by an Italian denim manufacturer who supplies the world’s biggest luxury and fashion names.
There are three different watches in this collection. Two of them are for the ladies and feature either sapphires or diamonds. Both will be limited to 250 examples. For the men there is the “Oceanographic 4000 Jeans” which features the same denim, but has a much more masculine and technical feel to it. It even looks like the case is made out of carbon fiber. Hey, I like carbon fiber AND jeans!
