Fancy Watches Get the Virtual Treatment
September 3rd, 2007
I’ll start out by telling you that I’ve never been a dweller of the Second Life universe, but then again, I’m too busy living three or four lives in the real world. But for those of you who do take up residence in the insanely popular virtual world, you’ll soon have a way to give your avatar a little more style and class.
Luxury Swiss watch maker Hublot has revealed to our friends over at WatchLuxus that they’ll be setting up an impressive virtual shop on Second Life a little later this month. You’ll be able to immerse yourself in the upscale environs of the Hublot Island store, complete with elegant contemporary interior design, fancy landscaping, bars to hang out in and even a place to dock your imaginary yacht.
You’ll be able to peruse the collection of Hublot’s elegant high-tech and traditional watches and let your avatar accessorize with them. The Hublot virtual store will open its doors on September 12th. I’m not sure how many virtual bucks their timepieces will cost, but given the fancy digs, I’m sure that you’ll have to save up a few Lindens. But your virtual friends will certainly be impressed.
