HUBLOT FRIEND OF THE BRAND SIMONA HALEP MET WITH CUSTOMERS IN BUCHAREST UNDER HUBLOT AND CELLINI’S PATRONAGE
Bucharest, Romania, April 13, 2017 – This morning at the famous Stejarii Country Club, Hublot and its exclusive retailer in Romania, Cellini, hosted a memorable meet and greet between Hublot Friend, WTA #5 Romanian tennis player, Simona Halep and privileged young fans who got to play a friendly round on the court.
Located in Baneasa forest, in the heart of a green and fresh air area of approximately 22,000 sqm, Stejarii Country Club is the one and only Country Club in Romania. Developed by former Romanian tennis player and now successful businessman Ion Tiriac, this refined Club perfectly combines indoor and outdoor sports activities as well as event spaces and infrastructures dedicated to children who account for one fourth of the club’s 2,000 members.
Arriving at Stejarii Country Club with her manager, the retired and 1978 French Open winner Virginia Ruzici, Simona Halep gave interviews to Romanian luxury magazines before she joined some privileged guests for a special encounter.
Very popular in her motherland, Simona Halep grew up in Constanta on the Black Sea and began to play tennis when she was 4. She turned professional in 2008 and first broke into the world’s Top 50 in 2012. 2014 was a landmark year for Simona who reached both the French Open and WTA Finals to become world #2, the best ranking of her career. Simona Halep has already won 14 single titles in her career and is now ranked world #5.
Simona Halep became a Hublot Friend in February 2016, a brand with which she shares a sense of excellence, passion and generosity which led her to meet VIPs yesterday in Bucharest. Among the happy few, some children, supported by their enthusiastic parents, had the chance to play a friendly round or two with her. A moment to remember.
Benoit Lecigne, Brand Director for Hublot Eastern Europe, France, Belux, United Kingdom and Ireland, declared: “With our exclusive retailer Cellini, today in Bucharest we are proud to have Simona Halep, our Hublot Friend, who happily shared some time with the kids of her country, showing commitment, friendship and determination, three values which are key to the Hublot brand.”
To end this joyful moment, the children and their parents were invited to share a last drink with Simona Halep on the Club terrace and capture this unforgettable moment. On this occasion, Simona Halep wore a Hublot Classic Fusion Blue Titanium Bracelet. Resolutely chic, appropriate in all circumstances, the Classic Fusion Bracelet Blue can be adapted both to a casual look or a smarter outfit. From the case to the bracelet, it shows the exclusive nuances of King Gold red gold and the ‘metallic’ reflections of titanium. Easy to wear in 33, 38 and 42 mm, 3-hand or chronograph, it will match all styles and works together with ladies’ or men’s fashion.
