Last night, Tuesday, 5th December, the Directors of Weir & Sons, Grafton Street’s iconic jewellery store, along with luxury Swiss watchmaker Hublot hosted a very special festive celebration.

The glittering evening also celebrated the launch of Hublot at Weir & Sons, which is now the only Irish stockist of the watch brand.

The sporting community was also well represented with guests including Brian Gregan, National Champion over 400m and the fastest man in Ireland over this distance for the last six years, and Jenny Egan, Ireland’s most successful active woman’s canoeist and winner of several medals in 2017 including a World Championship bronze.

Benoit Lecigne, Hublot Brand Director, spoke about his delight that Hublot is finally available in Ireland, saying: “There is no doubt Hublot will be as coveted in Ireland as it in Europe and the UK, where we have enjoyed double digit growth.

We are delighted to celebrate The Art of Fusion and our quest for horological excellence and disruptive innovations with our exclusive partner in Ireland, Weir & Sons.”
