Hublot watches have been gracing the wrists of the elite among the wristwatch-wearing culture since the 1980’s, when the company first started out with Carlo Crocco as director. Their designs span from the bold Big Bang watch collection, represented by globally-recognised sports personalities such as Usain Bolt, Dustin Johnson and Sangh Bleu, to the elegant Classic Fusion watch collection, worn by “The King”, Pele. Those who recognise the importance of an in-house manufactured luxury wristwatch from start to finish, will find themselves at one with a Hublot watch. The ideology and the painstaking hours of meticulous work involved in each creation, is often what brings a Hublot watch to the attention of a watch fanatic. These timepieces stand for everything important within the traditional watchmaking industry, plus the designs have remained faithful to the original prototypes that first started out with the birth of the company, albeit with improvements made wherever possible to material quality and advanced technical procedures.
The synergy that runs between various departments and experts working at Hublot, has enabled the company to share some truly breathtaking innovation with the world. Many inspirational design cues are taken from the sporting industry, yet the designs also appeal to fashion-followers of the world, with style and status remaining at the forefront of each design at all times. Hublot watches are enjoyed all over the globe and by men and women who share the same passion for a quality in-house developed movement.
The Hublot Big Bang watch heavily influenced the trend for oversized watch faces. The bold and dynamic timepieces encourage the wearer to delve into the daring depths of their personality, to wear something completely “out there” and attention-demanding without the worry of creating a fashion disaster on the wrist. Despite such a broad, masculine presence when worn, these watches are equally balanced with quality materials and examples of traditional watchmaking methods throughout. The bezel and lugs of the Big Bang 45mm Ferrari Titanium, for example, is crafted from red and black composite resin, whilst Faceted polished, rhodium–plated have been micro-blasted in black to create a sleek look against a Ferrari appliqué, rhodium–plated dial.
Our Hublot Classic Fusion collection combines classic watchmaking values modern technology to create these classic designs that allow the wearer a chance to enjoy a choice in premium materials. Titanium, gold, ceramic, steel, diamonds and platinum have been worked into a variety of different timepieces from this iconic collection – all balanced in perfect proportions, of course. The simplicity of the dials, combined with precise chronograph counters and sleek central hands all work in perfect harmony with one another to create a timepiece that be enjoyed just as much during the daytime, as it can at night. Hublot Classic Fusion watches perform with the same technical audacity of those from within the Big bang collection. Their chronograph functions are synonymous with the modern sports industry – a quality that serves a practical purpose as well as looking professional.
Hublot’s Spirit of Big Bang watch collection demonstrates perfect use of material fusion yet again. The components of each design are hand assembled, including the individual elements of their proud in-house manufactured movements. The designs of the Hublot Spirit of Big Bang watches are unique and dramatic. Their skeletonised dials expose the fine artistry of classic watch manufacture, along with the peerless performance of the movement, with individual parts that work synergistically together. The titanium, the ceramic and the sapphire versions all offer something unique to the wearer and come with a different strap, along with polished faceted hands that contribute to an ultra-technical look.
