The development of a luxury brand - The History of Hublot


Hublot founder Carlo Crocco began his career in the watch industry in 1975. With the name of his wife, Marie-Daniel-Montre, the Italian sold in his circle of family and friend his first watches, which were similar to the later Hublot designs even back then. Unlike most Swiss watchmakers Hublot is still in family hands. Five years later, the founder appeared in 1980 for the first time with the brand "Hublot" and thus realized the dream of his own watch brand. The name is closely rooted in the first watch that Crocco unveiled in Basel this year: it was a gold watch with rubber strap. This material was until then completely unknown in the watch industry and convinced immediately. The combination of the black bracelet, the golden bezel and the equally black dial with its hinged lid reminded strongly of a porthole (French: "Hublot").
The special rubber bracelet quickly became a hallmark of the company, rarely before has such noble and sporty materials been combined.

Another milestone of the company was in 2004 when the marketing talent Jean-Claude Biver was appointed CEO. With new ideas and an extraordinary spirit of innovation he brought the brand back into the fast lane. Shortly after his nomination, the "Classic Fusion" and the legendary series "Big Bang" and "King Power" were introduced. Awarded numerous prizes such as the "Prix du Design 2005" and "Watch of the Year", the Big Bang is still considered Hublot's most popular collection today. In 2007, Hublot opened its first boutique in Paris, quickly followed by the second one year later in Saint Tropez. Today, Hublot has more than 30 of its own boutiques worldwide. For the individualization of the watches, wires are pulled or stretched in the armand after completion of the purchase and perfectly adapted to the wearer's wrist. This guarantees every customer the perfect wearing comfort.

Hublot is known for the artful combination of different materials and extravagant designs. Through the use of luxury materials and the material typical of the brand rubber, the watches are both elitist and sporty and are clearly different from other watches of the luxury segment. The excellent quality is constantly evident in a variety of cases and sturdy bezels. In keeping with the sensational mergers, the company made an excursion into winter sports in 2008. Together with the ski manufacturer "Zai" they developed an individual luxury ski using the company's trademark vulcanized natural rubber as the skier's surface. Only 111 copies of it were produced, which were sold in record time. This watch brand is not only a fantastic oxymoron in its model design, but also in its philosophy. The leitmotif of the brand is to combine tradition and innovation. Always driven by innovation and progress, Hublot has managed to establish itself firmly in the luxury watch industry despite its relatively recent history. To underline this, Hublot presented its "Big Bang $ 5 million" in Basel in 2012. The watch carries its name and is therefore the most expensive series watch in the world.

These stars wear Hublot

Like the brand itself, its wearers are luxurious and legendary. These include Kobe Bryant, the former long-time captain of the Los Angeles Lakers. The record holder Usain Bolt also wears Hublot and has even teamed up with his favorite watch brand to create the special edition "Hublot King Power Usain Bolt". The Watch of New York Yankee's Alex Rodriguez? The Limited Edition "Big Bang the King Power Black Magic"! But not only for athletes, this luxury watch brand is sought after. The exceptional talent Ed Sheeran also wears a Hublot Big Bang. The list can be continued indefinitely, other celebrities include musicians such as Jay-Z and Lionel Richie and Hollywood stars like Jessica Biel and Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Is a new, pre-owned or vintage Hublot watch the right investment for you?

Hublot has found the perfect niche for itself: sporty-elegant luxury watches in a class of its own. Although the brand is relatively young, the watches move in the same sometimes even more exclusive price segment than Rolex watches and thus play in the top league. Looking at the development and growth of the past 10 years, it is to be expected that Hublot is far from reaching its peak. Although you can not create a long-term forecast due to the short history, but many other luxury watch brands such as Rolex or Omega, watches from their early years, particularly limited series and special models, are the most sought after and quiet expensive. Invest in a Hublot watch today and see for yourself how your watch becomes a legend.

Popular models from Hublot

  • The Hublot Classic Fusion 525.NM.0137.LR.SLF17 is made of ceramic, titanium and crocodile leather, perfectly reflecting the material fusion of Hublot. The black skeleton dial fascinates not only by filigree craftsmanship, but is by specially set red accents - the totalizers and the second hand - a real eye-catcher.
  • Hard to beat is the Hublot Big Bang 342.ST.5010.ST.2704, comes in silver and gray, with a bracelet and steel case. The dial is gray with Arabic numerals and stick indices. At three, six and nine o'clock, the watch has totalizers, which are also in dark gray/black and are therefore barely perceptible at first glance. This watch polarizes not with eye-catching design, but with timeless style.
  • If that's too much for you, check out the Hublot MDM Geneve 1521.1. Also in gray and silver - the bracelet and steel case. The gray dial further has totalizers and has a subtle date display at three o'clock, silver hands and the company logo with the name of the watch. You can recognize the origin of the name "Hublot", the watch reminded by the largely empty dial and the steel bezel strongly to a porthole.
  • A total counterpart to this is the Hublot King Oceanographic 1000 732.NX.1127.RX. The watch is definitely ready for any deep-sea adventure, with a water-resistance of 1000 meters, or 100 bar. The 48mm titanium case with rubber strap definitely sets a statement on each wrist. Despite the size, the watch is neither clunky nor heavy. Hublot has managed to develop a technically highly specialized watch, and yet not let the industrial design appear too cold. With friendly colors such as blue and yellow, the watch gets a softer character, and is thus well tolerated in everyday life. This watch convinces at the highest level both technically and with an extraordinary design.

Other top series from Hublot

  • "Big Bang" is considered the most coveted model by Hublot and has been honored countless times for its brilliant design. Its name derives from the Big Bang, the only time all the materials in the universe were mixed - an allusion to the innovative material combinations that have become Hublot's hallmark.
  • The "Spirit of Big Bang" collection presented in 2014 is a new interpretation of the Hublot classic "Big Bang", which continues to impress with new editions to this day. It comes in an elegant tonneau shape (barrel-shaped), reminiscent of the early 20th century. Especially elegant, this series is perfect for anyone who appreciates unusual watches with classic noblesse. As with all other Humblot collections, a variety of material combinations are used here as well. Whether gold, diamonds, crocodile leather, rubber or titanium, everything is represented.
  • The "Classic Fusion" has a slightly less distinctive design than the Big Bang and thus appeals to gentlemen and ladies alike who appreciate the understated style. But even lovers of opulent luxury get their money's worth with the Classic Fusion, as there are complete diamond-studded editions.
  • Hublot King Power is Hublot's technically most advanced watch, with four years of movement. The Caliber HUB 1240 Unico consists of over 300 parts, which are assembled in elaborate manual work. Through this elaborate production, there are numerous strictly limited models, where a high value increase is expected.
  • Probably the most extravagant series Hublot's "Collection of MP". Technically highly innovative, the watches almost do not look like they are from this world. For example, the Hublot MP 02 Key of Time Titanium lets its wearer become master over time, running four times faster or slower than the regular time, as desired. Do you want to have a very great moment? Just do not let time pass. Another unique model in this series is the MP-05 LaFerrari. Together with the luxury sports car company Ferrari, the extraordinary timepiece that looks more like a high-performance engine than a wristwatch was created. In fact, this watch also performs high performance, with its eleven spring set in series, it has a power reserve of up to 50 days.
