Hublot Opens New Aspen Boutique With Spirit of Big Bang Rockies Limited Edition

It’s just past the stroke of nine, and I’m packed into the Silver Queen — a sleek black gondola flying up Aspen Mountain into the “white room.” Inside are a half-dozen other hopefuls, all keenly anticipating making the first tracks in last night’s freshly fallen snow, which casts a dreamy contrast against the sharp blue skies of another bright Colorado morning. Skiers call this glorious type of day a “bluebird,” and short of going chest-deep on an early spring blower, this is probably about as good as it gets.

It’s been a little over a year since Hublot became the official timekeeper of Aspen Snowmass, one of North America’s longest-running, and most prestigious ski destinations.

Car collector, entrepreneur and philanthropist Barry Skolnick celebrated the grand opening of his Ikonick Motors and his birthday this past weekend in Miami. Skolnick and Apollo Automobil, the European hyper-car manufacturer, unveiled for Apollo’s latest project, the “IE” Intensa Emozione, at Ikonick Motors.

The car was built with the collaboration of legendary motorsport and development specialist HWA AG for the final dynamic development phase of the Intensa Emozione.
The stupendous vehicle pays homage to the GT1 glory days. The design is impressive in every detail and baffles the mind to think that such a design could come true. The new all-carbon fiber chassis, which comes with mono-cell rollover protection, was hand-built by Apollo and HWA AG, using high-quality prepreg-autoclave by Capricorn Group.
