The history of Hublot dates back to 1980 but in lots of ways, the story didn't really begin until 2005, when the brand unveiled the game-changing Big Bang. The Big Bang is the heart and soul of Hublot, and its bold looks, large size and radical fusion of unconventional materials defined a new generation of masculine timepieces.

London, New York, Paris, Tokyo: The limited edition Hublots that celebrate the big 4 cities

Hublot has decided to celebrate their love of Britain's capital city in quite a literal way – by producing this, the Hublot Classic Fusion Special Edition London. Based on the standard Classic Fusion, the 45mm case of the new London edition features bespoke elements such as a polished black ceramic case, black satin-finished bezel and a rubber band that's capped with a velvet-effect "City Of London" tartan theme. The real pièce de résistance of the new limited edition watch, however, is its brushed black ceramic dial, which features a micro-blasted Union Jack motif, which is etched into the dial and spills out onto the bezel. Hublot has seen fit to proclaim their adoration for the UK's most populous city by printing "Hublot Loves London" on the sapphire crystal display caseback. The Hublot Classic Fusion Special Edition London is limited to just 50 pieces in total, and you'll only be able to purchase the matte black marvel at Hublot's New Bond Street boutique or from the UK's premier retailer, Harrods. As the title of this story alluded to, this isn't the first time that the Swiss watchmaker has commemorated one of the world's greatest cities. In fact, Hublot's London special edition… Read More

Battle Royale: The T+T Team debate which is the best Hublot Big Bang

best Hublot Big Bang

The team have physically and emotionally recovered from the first round of Battle Royale, which saw a war of words fit for a Grecian epic tale. This week, the team are back in the cage to make their case for their favourite piece from the Hublot Big Bang collection, a family of watches that has just about everything you might ever desire in a wristwatch. Without further ado — draw swords! James' choice – the Hublot Big Bang Unico Full Magic Gold This Big Bang typifies why many consider Hublot to be at the pointy end of the horological spear when it comes to material innovation. Not only have the wunderkind managed to create a new precious metal that looks unique, but "Magic Gold", as a result of being a proprietary blend of 18k yellow gold and ceramic, is also robust and very scratch resistant. This means that you could conceivably daily wear this timepiece without fear of errant door jams or whatever scratching it … which is a good thing, because it's got an RRP of $48,300 big ones. At 42mm, it's also the most appropriately sized Hublot for my lissom wrists, and like most Hublots, it comes on… Read More

Hublot highlights from LVMH's Dubai Watch Week

Hublot 2020 Novelties

Though it may have been a few weeks ago, such was the extent of Hublot's 2020 novelties unveiled at LVMH's Dubai Watch Week that it's still got the horological hemisphere talking. For a start, the big talking point was that the Swiss watchmaker's iconic Big Bang was unveiled on an all-new integrated bracelet, and thus, the Hublot Big Bang Integral was born. Available from launch in three different materials — Titanium, Black Ceramic and King Gold — the handsome chronograph-equipped timepiece was a big surprise for the collective watch community, as it represents a significant shift from Hublot's quintessential natural rubber strap, which has been a constant since the original Big Bang's release back in 2005. The new Integral sports a well-sized 42mm case that measures a relatively slim 13.45mm thick and features the marque's signature design language. All of the dials are open-worked, which provides a distinctly avant-garde aesthetic, and complements the angularity of the new bracelet. The skeletonised dial also gives wearers the opportunity to admire the in-house manufacture Calibre HUB1280, a self-winding movement that features the aforementioned chronograph complication with column wheel (visible at six o'clock on the dial), 70 hours of power reserve, 43 jewels and an… Read More

How could a humble watch bracelet win a watch fair? The Hublot Big Bang Integral just did exactly that, but why? How?

Hublot Big Bang Integral

OK, let's dispense with any hype and get down to it. Sixty per cent of watches are sold on a bracelet and this is a fact that Hublot are finally set to take advantage of with the Hublot Big Bang Integral, a new collection, freshly launched at the LVMH fair in Dubai in early January. But first, if we've set a tone of #realtalk, let's address a glaring contradiction. Doesn't the very concept of a Hublot Big Bang with a metal bracelet jar with the original vision for the Big Bang? Which was to demonstrate the 'Art of Fusion' by attaching a rubber strap to a precious-metal case? A quarter of a century later, the model has grown into such an entity in its own right that it can now evolve without letting the original concept down in any way, opening the way for the Hublot Big Bang Integral. A Hublot Big Bang with a metal bracelet was always going to happen, regardless of the popularity of the original version. However the reason for the long wait (this single component has taken no less than three years of exhaustive research and development) is telling. Because it couldn't just be any… Read More

"Watch & Act!" Auction Item – Lot 5: A Hublot Classic Fusion, made unique

Hublot Classic Fusion

Another watch conceived from scratch for the 'Watch & Act!' Auction, the Classic Fusion 'Watch & Act!' Unique Piece features a ceramic case, carbon fibre bezel and a shimmering blue dial. The case back is engraved with the words 'Unique Piece'. Before we go on, here's a quick primer on the Classic Fusion line: the collection, introduced in 2010, is intended as a slightly more subtle (dare we say dressier?) offering than the traditional Big Bang, while still possessing some of those indisputable Hublot hallmarks — the 'H' screws on the bezel, the solid end links on the strap, and those contrasting 'ears' on the case at three and six. It's a softer Hublot, sure, but it's still a Hublot. It's also an incredibly stylish watch. The blue dial is lush, like a midnight sky. The satin-finished sunray dial is a wonder to behold, reflecting light all over the place thanks to the polished, faceted markers and hands, not to mention the rich texture of the dial itself. The colour is beautifully picked up in the rubber-backed alligator strap, with colour-matched blue stitch. And then there's the case itself: 45mm of ceramic, a mix of polish and vertical brush ensuring… Read More

This year is different though. The Classic Fusion Ferrari GT 3D Carbon offers a more rounded bezel and case… Read More
