For the Be Water My Friend--the legend of Bruce Lee Memorial Exhibition, HUBLOT invited the
Bruce Lee Foundation to display precious items from Bruce Lee’s personal life, and participated in
the exhibition design. Advocating "the Art of Fusion," Loic Biver said, "As an icon of the 20th century
and the most iconic Kung Fu star in history, Bruce Lee embodies the real 'art of fusion' of East-West
culture. Following the Bruce Lee 75 th anniversary Memorial Exhibition held in Hong Kong, HUBLOT
is honored to join hands with Bruce Lee Foundation again to hold a memorial exhibition in China,
here in Beijing and release the second limited edition timepiece, as a tribute to this legendary icon.  ”

Shannon Lee said: "As a nonprofit organization, the Bruce Lee Foundation inspires confidence
and motivates action through the message of Bruce Lee. We are grateful to have the opportunity to
participate in this exhibition in collaboration with Hublot to benefit our foundation. I look forward to
sharing my father's spirit and philosophy with the people of Beijing. The key to immortality is first
living a life worth remembering, and I thank Hublot for immortalizing the spirit of my father within this
beautiful timepiece while also supporting the Bruce Lee Foundation!

Additionally, thanks to its innovative approach, guests can experience the « Bruce Lee Mirror”, a
cylindrical glass photo frame featuring Bruce Lee’s classic kung fu postures. Made of glass fragments, it plays on 3D special effects, integrating the Hublot Unico In-House chronograph movement and Bruce Lee in the same time and space.

Bruce Lee and Hublot present the fusion between East and West

Bruce Lee first broke the traditional sectarianism in the world of martial arts, boldly combined Taoist
philosophy from the East with Wing Chun, Western boxing, karate and taekwondo to create Jeet Kune Do, which is exactly the "Art of Fusion" that HUBLOT-embodies. With the combination of a natural rubber strap and precious metal materials, Hublot makes an epoch-making innovation in the history of watchmaking. Since then, each fusion of material, East and West, will produce stunning breakthroughs and innovations.

Bruce Lee’s legacy is not limited to the martial arts, but also ideas and philosophy. This is one of the
reasons why people still respect him as a martial artist and philosopher. Bruce Lee explained the Jeet
Kune Do philosophy that he had created as a process of exploration, self-discovery and the growth of a soul. Hublot believes in the natural forces that come from the natural energy of the universe.

The creation of Big Bang watches was born from precisely this idea. In exploring the fusion concept between minerals and phytochemicals, Hublot focused on time, expanding watchmaking philosophies. The art of fusion does not only occur in the above two areas, the fusion of sky and the earth, the fusion of tradition and innovation also occur all the time.
