Hublot has come a long way since it participated in the first-ever Only Watch charity auction in 2005. For this edition of the biannual charity auction to be held on the 28th of September in Monaco, Hublot is offering the first timepiece to ever use its new bright red ceramic. Because the process of making ceramic requires extreme temperatures and pressures, the pigments added to the zirconium oxide powder tend to destabilize, making the final color of the finished ceramic almost impossible to predict. After nearly 2 years of intensive research and testing at Hublot’s own manufacture housed metallurgy department, [...]
You may have see it coming, but it’s finally here. Back in 2011 when Jay-Z and Kanye West dropped the single Otis from their collaborative effort “Watch The Throne” with the now iconic “new watch alert” line from the opening verse, people speculated about the mogul’s relationship with Hublot. Shawn Carter has been an avid watch aficionado since the onset of his career, and has chosen Hublot to produce a special collection for his upcoming pop-up installation at Barney’s in New York later this season. For those who paid close attention, you’ll know that Shawn Carter’s Hublot of choice is [...]
Hublot has been known to experiment with high-tech materials like carbon fiber and even produces its own patented materials like Magic Gold and Bright Red Ceramic. But Hublot also believes that the “Art of Fusion” philosophy extends beyond just high-technology. Meet the Classic Fusion Jeans. There is no other garment that symbolizes our times like a pair of blue jeans does. And yet, the story of jeans dates back to the mid-19th century and was first produced in the Italian city of Genoa. Some believe jeans got its name from the French word for Genoa, “Gênes”. Hublot first explored the [...]
What does it take to make a mark on the world of watchmaking? Is it having the centuries-old name of a great watchmaker? Is it the claim of once being a watchmaker to royalty? Or does bringing something new to an industry built on tradition suffice? I like to think it can be any of the above. Hublot might not share the same heritage as many other brands out there, but since it’s establishment over 30 years ago the “porthole” brand has brought out countless innovations to the industry in terms of material use and combinations. And yet, Hublot rarely [...]
While better known for sporty, high-tech and relatively manly watches, Hublot has always paid special attention to their customers of the fairer sex with truly glamorous collections. So today on Hublot Nation we would like to share with you one of our recent ladies’ watch collections, the Big Bang Steel and Gold Caviar. An evolution from the original black and white Big Bang Caviars and the later Tutti Frutti versions, the Steel and Gold Caviars are the first metal variants of the instantly recognizable Big Bang Caviar silhouette. Some of you might be wondering why these new steel and gold [...]
Today we would like to share with you a look at one of our less communicated pieces, the 42mm edition of the Classic Fusion Classico Ultra-Think Skeleton. The Classic Fusion collection was launched several years back as a more subdued line, in contrast with the Big Bang and King Power offerings. Bringing back some of the original design elements from Hublot’s earliest watches while still retaining the brand’s emphasis on new materials and futuristic aesthetics, the Classic Fusion is a veritable fusion of retro-chic and avant-garde cool. Fast-forward to 2012 and Hublot unveils the Classico Ultra-Thin Skeleton, a new benchmark [...]
2013 has been another remarkable year for Hublot, filled with groundbreaking new watches, new partnerships, new boutiques and above all, new “fusion”. But before we celebrate and usher in the new year, let’s take a look at some of the key moments and events that have made 2013 a memorable one for Hublot. Hublot kicked off 2013 with the Geneva Watch Fair, where the several new Big Bang Ferrari limited editions were introduced to the increasingly popular collection. The 2013 Geneva Watch Fair also saw the release of an all-new collection, the Classic Fusion Chrono Aero. After entering the basketball [...]
As the name would imply, the Big Bang Unico All Black is truly all black. The 45mm case, which features quick strap-release buttons and for the first time on a modern Hublot round pushers, is crafted from sandblasted matte black ceramic. The Titanium “H” screws, which have evolved from the original 2005 Big Bang to be done in relief, are treated with black PVD. The open dial features extra-large blacknbaton and Arabic numeral indexes hollowed and filled with black Superluminova. The facetted multi-level hands are done in polished black metal, also filled with the black luminous material. Even the skeleton [...]
It’s that time of the year again, where the Geneva Watch Fair sees Hublot coming out with some of its latest creations. And while Baselworld in the Spring is Hublot’s principal watch exhibition, this year Hublot has taken the opportunity to unveil a totally new collection. So let us kick off our daily posts during the “Hublot Geneva Days” with the totally new and aptly named “Spirit of Big Bang” line. While this isn’t the first Hublot collection to be offered in a tonneau case (see the original MP-01 or more recent MP-06 Senna for example), the “Spirit of Big [...]
Because no Hublot watch exhibition would be complete without something for the ladies: For the occasion of the Geneva Days, Hublot unveils a new reinterpretation of the now iconic and vibrant Tutti Frutti collection, the Big Bang Pop Art. Inspired by the likes of Andy Warhol and the American Pop Art movement that began in the late 1950’s and received acclaimed recognition later in the 70’s, the Big Bang Pop Art is a horological canvas of artistic expression through eye-catching vibrant colors. For a more retro feel, the 41mm Big Bang cases are crafted from stainless steel or 3N yellow [...]
For the occasion of the 2014 Geneva Watch Fair, Hublot is unveiling an all-new Big Bang for men: the Big Bang Dark Jeans Ceramic 44mm. The original Big Bang Jeans, primarily made for fashion-conscious female clientele was an immediate success when initially released years ago. However, there was a lot of enthusiasm for the collection from men as well. Something about the combination of Hublot’s signature modern and edgy case with the denim fabric elements was alluring. And while there is a lot common between the new Big Bang Dark Jeans Ceramic 44mm and the original Big Bang Jeans, their [...]
With the eagerly awaited FIFA 2014 close at hand, Hublot, the official timekeeper of the Brazilian FIFA World Cup, has decided to open its first boutique in Latin America in the city of Rio de Janeiro. To coincide with opening of the boutique, Hublot have teamed with Brazilian football sensation and brand ambassador Pelé to unveil his signature watch, the Hublot Classic Fusion Chrono Aero Pelé. The watch takes on the Classic Fusion Chrono Aero, here crafted in satin-brushed and polished black ceramic; one of the toughest materials out there. The 45mm wide case is completed with blackened titanium “H” [...]
Hublot have collaborated with the UK luxury watch retailer The Watch Gallery. They have launched two worldwide exclusive timepieces, the Hublot Classic Fusion Automatic and Chronograph. Both watches are limited to 15 pieces and feature The Watch Gallery trademark blue appearing on the hands and tinted sapphire crystal open case back. This is the first time for Hublot to have fused ceramic and titanium together on a fusion 45mm. It is also a first for the brand to have a tinted open case back. The Automatic Classic Fusion comes with a black alligator leather strap which is perfect for casual [...]
With every passing day we’re getting closer to the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil™, where Hublot will be the Official Timekeeper for the highly anticipated tournament. But perhaps more importantly for Hublot aficionados out there is that Hublot is also the Official Watch brand for the tournament, and for the occasion the official watch has finally been announced. Meet the Big Bang Unico Bi-Retrograde Chrono. No stranger to the world of football (or soccer for our friends in North America) Hublot has released numerous football-themed watches in the past, starting with the Big Bang Euro 2008 that featured a 45-minute [...]
The new Classic Fusion Tourbillon Firmament is a watch that gives the term “precious metal” a whole new meaning.Unique to Hublot, this is the first time the metal Osmium has been used in a watch. Osmium is arguably the rarest metal on our planet. In the same metal group as Platinum, Osmium is in fact the hardest and densest metal of all, weight in at an astonishingly massive 22.6 g/cm3. Osmium is found in platinum ores and is so rare that approximately 10,000 tons of platinum ore will contain a mere 28 grams of osmium. Platinum is a rare enough [...]
Hublot’s love affair with skulls is far from just a new fling. With the first collection of skull-themed pieces going back around 2 years with the “Skull Bang” created in collaboration with Lauren Picciotto of Chronopassion, it was about time that Hublot created something more complex with the theme. And so we present the Classic Fusion Tourbillon Skull, which, as the name would imply is quite the skeletal piece! What you have here is basically the well-known Classic Fusion Skeleton Tourbillon that has been completely redesigned and readapted inside and out. Perhaps not immediately obvious, the case is made of [...]
The Classic Fusion line is one that embodies a more traditional and elegant spirit of the Hublot aesthetic. This year, Hublot is releasing an all-new Classic Fusion line with a new 8-day manual winding movement. Housed in a 45mm case in either Titanium or King Gold the Classic Fusion 8-day Power Reserve, the new HUB1601 movement boasts a power reserve of 8 days or 192 hours when fully wound. The addition of a power reserve complication at the 10 o’clock position is a welcome indication in manual-winding watches such as this. The Classic Fusion 8-day Power Reserve also has a [...]
If there’s one piece from Hublot’s Baselworld 2014 novelties that showcases the prowess of the brand’s manufacture, it’s the Classic Fusion Cathedral Tourbillon Minute Repeater. After the success of the first in-house minute repeater and tourbillon caliber found in the special edition Big Bang from 2010, Hublot and its R&D department have come out with the second iteration of the Grande Complication movement. Striking watches like minute repeaters and the even more complex “cathedral” minute repeaters are among the most difficult watch complications to execute, so it should come as no surprise that the HUB8001 movement found in the Classic [...]
Hublot is best known as a watch brand that holds traditional values dearly but looks towards tomorrow’s technologies for inspiration. But what if For Baselworld 2014 we’re proud to present an all-new collection, the Classic Fusion Tourbillon Vitrail. Inspired by stained glass windows, with their colorful translucency and skeleton-like metal providing the framework. Using a new technology that has been developed in Switzerland, the glass’s origins lie in the world of physics to filter out different frequencies and colors of visible light. Much more durable that traditional glass, this “hi-tech” glass is made in Switzerland and laser-cut to the nearest [...]
