Hublot holds a privileged position among premium luxury watches. It might seem hard to believe, this brand is relatively young in the industry but has gained respect across the watchmaking community in a short period when compared to watchmakers boasting a two-century legacy or so. Founded in 1980 by Italian Carlo Crocco, Hublot is originally Swiss, now owned by the French holding LVMH.
Hublot celebrated its fortieth Anniversary in 2020. What allowed the brand to lead in such a competitive scenario was his uncompromisingly innovative pedigree. The Hublot's mission is the so-called Art of Fusion, in both style and materials. The 1980 timepiece introduced the first gold and rubber luxury timepiece, proving it was possible to combine in a luxury product two hard-to-bond materials back then.
To celebrate its 40th Anniversary, Hublot unveiled a three-limited-edition collection we discussed in a dedicated article: the Hublot Classic Fusion 40 Years Anniversary.
Hublot has continuously pursued the Art of Fusion across the range by patenting various innovations in the industry. A perfect example is an 18K alloy called "Magic Gold," a gold and ceramic (called boron carbide) alloy, to enhance scratch resistance to pure gold. The brand has also introduced another alloy, which combines red gold and platinum, called King Gold, boasting unprecedented refinement.
We're talking about high-end watches, products offering the highest quality in their class, and ingenuity. Please consider that two timepieces belonging to the same collection often feature many differences between them, affecting the price list very much.

The Big Bang is Hublot's flagship product line. A Hublot Big Bang watch offers a variety of creative and versatile designs. They stand out thanks to the different parts contrasting with each other in either material or color options.
The collection is vast, comprising different styles and sizes. A Hublot Big Bang model usually features a fairly massive case, with diameters up to 45mm. The bezel is a brand's hallmark, secured to the case via six screws tightened enough to fasten the case and bezel.
The collection also includes refined classic and slim timepieces designed to fit any wrist virtually.
Here are three reasons why a Big Bang is worth your consideration:
the collection offers plenty of collectors' pieces
The materials combo and offering is unique, like with the exceptional Magic Gold, for instance
there's virtually an option for everyone
The Hublot Ferrari watches are arguably among the most appealing. This long-lasting partnership has produced technically advanced timepieces, bringing the prancing horse insignia. Interestingly, it is not a one-off collection, rather a list of collaborative models, each belonging to a different core collection.
Among the most remarkable models is the Hublot Big Bang Ferrari Black and Gray Ceramic, for example, showcasing a very intricate dial and great on-the-wrist comfort.
Else, let us highlight the Hublot Big Bang Ferrari Limited Edition, which marked ten years of such a winning agreement.
Finally, Hublot Big Bang Ferrari 305 is a 2015-introduced timepiece whose charm is unchanged so far.
It is as beautiful as it is pure. The Hublot Classic Fusion is where it all started and reinforces the brand's hallmark. Again, this product line comes packed with:
Various case sizes and materials combination: gold, titanium, ceramic, or carbon
A subtly sporty look, a one-of-a-kind design enhancing the porthole, great on any outfit
a tourbillon and a minute repeater, in the top end
Up to 8 days of maximum power reserve
A great example is the Hublot Classic Fusion Ferrari GT, introducing a new design code inspired by Ferrari's GT cars.
Else, the Hublot Classic Fusion Tourbillon Black Skeleton Skull, a watch so disruptive across the Classic Fusion range and beyond.
The collection's mainstream is a breakthrough innovation. It is something you won't just find when looking at the mechanism and from a design perspective. With this line of products, Hublot aims at going far beyond the highest expectations.
Here is where Hublot is showing off the very best of its Engineering department. Each timepiece is unique, somewhat futuristic, and at the forefront of product innovation.
A striking example of the aforementioned is the Hublot MP-09 Tourbillon Bi-Axis.
Finally, we can't forget to mention Ferrari and Hublot's other outcome: the one-piece Hublot Techframe Ferrari 70 years Tourbillon Chronograph conceived to mark the Italian brand's 70th Anniversary.
