Price Matching on Watches & Jewellery
Established in 1980 by experienced Italian watchmaker Carlo Crocco, Hublot has gained a reputation as revolutionary innovators within the horological world. They introduced the first natural rubber wrist strap, as well as the world’s first scratchproof gold alloy, and continue to work at the cutting edge of technology. Their philosophy revolves around a core concept: The Art of Fusion. This identity is reflected in the craftsmanship of every timepiece that Hublot make; seemingly effortless combinations of tradition and innovation.
Hublot watches made their first appearance in the watchmaking industry in 1976 by Carlo Crocco, the Hublot watch was marked as the revolutionary era of the ‘Fusion’ concept. Originally working to produce Italian Briel watches, Crocco left the Binda Group dynasty in 1975 to start his own company.
In 1980, Hublot debuted at the Basel watch fair. Whilst this wasn’t a commercial success initially as the watch saw no orders placed at the event itself. But in the following months, the brand saw great success with over $2million worth of products being ordered.
Hublot, translating to the French word for ‘porthole’, made history by being one of the first watchmaking companies to incorporate a natural rubber strap into the design of many of its watches.
In 2005, Hublot revealed the Big Bang chronograph, which propelled the company forward in a whole host of areas. Utilising some of the most modern materials available, the Hublot Big Bang collection featured a watch with a huge, bold face unlike anything seen before. The collection became an overnight success with Hublot’s orders tripling in just one year. Following its release, the watch won a plethora of awards, including the 2005 Design Prize at the Geneva Watchmaking Grand Prix, Best Oversized Watch at Bahrain’s Watch of the Year Awards and also won the Sports Watch category at Japan’s Watch of the Year ceremony.
With over fifty globally based stores, Hublot has become a hugely popular and successful watchmaking company. Acquired in 2008 by the LVMH group, the Hublot brand continues to grow even more in popularity, due to their unique watch designs and innovative features, all of which guarantee a comfortable fit for both men and women alike.
Hublot watches have a long and proud tradition of sponsoring a whole host of high-profile sporting events and clubs.
To increase brand awareness for Hublot, the brand agreed to a sponsorship deal with Manchester United in 2008. Since then, Hublot has endorsed some of the biggest football clubs around Europe, including FC Bayern Munich, Paris Saint-Germain, Juventus and Ajax. Hublot watches have been one of the main sponsors of the FIFA World Cup and the European Championships in recent years – highlighting the brand's commitment to meticulous timekeeping on the biggest stage in sport.
Along with strong links to football, Hublot has also been official sponsors to Ferrari between the 2013-2015 F1 Seasons and currently sponsor both the Los Angeles Lakers and Miami Heat basketball teams.
