Hublot: Luxury, Innovation and Technology

Comparing to other luxury watchmaking brands, Hublot is a new brand.

They introduced the first natural rubber wrist strap and the world’s first scratchproof 18k gold alloy.

In 2005, the watchmaker revealed the Big Bang Chronograph; the collection was unlike anything else, featuring a huge, bold face and catapulting the brand forward. The watch received many awards, such as the 2005 Design Prize at the Geneva Watchmaking Grand Prix.

Combining tradition with innovation and cutting-edge technology, Hublot have become a successful brand beloved by many around the world, be it by watch aficionados, actors or athletes. Acquired in 2008 by the LVMH group, Hublot have a strong focus on unique designs and revolutionary features.

They bring together classic techniques with modern design and materials, such as rubber, carbon and ceramic, and have a strong association with the world of sports, having been official timekeepers for some of the world’s most prestigious events, like the FIFA World Cup.
