“It is an immense privilege to work with the Confederation to promote Switzerland to the entire world. It is the greatest of honours and I would like to recognise and pay tribute to the teams who are working in Bern every day to spread the values of our country. their work is incredible and highly worthwhile, and I promise that Hublot will once again live up to their ambitions.” stated Jean-Claude Biver, Chairman of Hublot.

The Swiss Pavilion, which was created by the team Steiner Tamschick Nüssli and which will be managed by Presence Switzerland, should offer visitors an emotive and interactive experience. It will highlight the Swiss glaciers as the guardians of the primordial water, but will also bear witness to Switzerland’s responsibility and competencies when it comes to protecting and re-establishing the purity of the water.

In this context, Hublot’s “Oceanographic 4000” dive watch – symbol of Switzerland’s innovative and high tech watchmaking expertise, and sponsored by the prestigious Monaco Oceanographic Museum – will be on display in the Swiss Pavilion.

Through its association with the Swiss Pavilion at the YEOSU World Expo 2012, Hublot is not only incredible proud to play a role in the promotion of Switzerland across the world, but is also delighted to reaffirm its profound attachment to the values of sustainable development and environmental responsibility and respect.
