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.

EVENT: Hublot launches the Classic Fusion Chronograph Berluti Scritto in Melbourne

At an event held at the Berluti flagship store in Collins Street, Melbourne, Hublot have launched their latest collaboration with Berluti, bespoke leather experts. Nestled amidst the fine footwear were the latest offerings of this ongoing partnership: two Classic Fusion watches with Berluti leather dials (the only ones in Australia), offered in vibrant colours – Bordeaux red with King Gold, and ocean blue with titanium. Both watches are 45mm across, and 13.4mm high, dual register chronographs (sans date), powered by the HUB1143 movement, and presented in an epic Berluti box, complete with leather watch roll and everything needed to keep that leather in tip-top condition. Venezia Scritto is the signature leather of the House of Berluti, a technique that involves engraving text into the calf leather, inspired by 18th century calligraphy. The leather is treated by hand to create unique patina, or palette of colours based on essential oils and pigments. The real challenge, though, is turning this leather — a living, organic material — into a watch dial. It’s a process that involved a huge amount of research and development to ensure the leather wouldn’t deteriorate inside the case, due to oxidisation and humidity – something that Hublot managed to achieve, resulting in a pair of watches… Read More

VIDEO: Like Goldilocks, this Hublot Spirit of Big Bang King Gold Blue is just right

Since its introduction in 2014, Hublot’s Spirit of Big Bang collection has quietly been gaining momentum. The tonneau-shaped case sacrifices none of the immediate impact that Hublot is famous for, but shapes it into a more wrist-hugging form. And while the line is — as you’d expect from Hublot — full of options, this smaller, 42mm Spirit of Big Bang King Gold Blue is a real standout. The case is stunning, with the blue details providing a perfect foil to the richness of the red gold, while the smaller size makes for a watch that you could legitimately wear in more formal settings. It’s attention-seeking, but not in the same way as the Sapphire Rainbow, or one of their bright ceramic pieces, like the Red Magic. If you like the Hublot aesthetic, and are looking for a gold power watch that won’t overwhelm, this is a very solid option.

HANDS-ON: Hublot’s Classic Fusion Titanium Green proves they’re the masters of colour

This week we’re looking at Hublot watches that aren’t the Big Bang. Yep, you read that right. For all that the brand is virtually synonymous with their iconic (or is that iconoclastic?) sports watch, it turns out Hublot isn’t afraid to show their softer side on occasion. You know what else Hublot has never been afraid of? Colour. Both these characteristics are very much in evidence with this stylish Classic Fusion Chronograph in green. First of all, 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 green they’ve opted for is a rich olive, dark, and far from garish. The satin-finished green sunray dial is a wonder to behold, throwing light all over the place thanks to the polished, faceted markers and hands, not to mention the… Read More

VIDEO: Not for the faint-hearted – Hublot’s Spirit of Big Bang Sapphire Rainbow

If anyone was ever to charge me with a unreasonable love of extravagant, gem-set statement watches, the evidence would be easy to find, and damning (Your Honour, I would point to evidence here, here and here, the prosecutor might say). And if I were to continue using the courtroom metaphor, and was allowed to call a key witness in my defence, I’d be calling this watch. The case, a well-sized 42mm tonneau, is in sapphire, already an attention-seeker. Add to that the 54 baguette-cut stones (including sapphires, rubies, amethysts, topazes and tsavorites) in rainbow hues on the bezel and you’ve got a watch that owns any room it’s in. Subtle – no. Awesome – heck yes! Hublot Spirit of Big Bang Sapphire Rainbow Australian pricing and availability Hublot Spirit of Big Bang Sapphire Rainbow, limited to 50 pieces, $148,000.

INTRODUCING: Ocean blue barrels – the Hublot Spirit of Big Bang Blue

Magical cylindrical tunnels of water. Riding inside a barrelling wave is considered by some to be the be-all and end-all of surfing. And while Hublot’s latest addition to the Spirit of Big Bang collection doesn’t exactly call for a rashie or a coating of wax, it does capture the essence of the sea, with an azure-coloured barrel-shaped case. Exclusive to Hublot boutiques and limited to 100 numbered pieces worldwide, the trademarked tonneau-shaped case measures 42mm across and perfectly captures the brand’s “Art of Fusion” mantra. Crafted from microblasted and polished blue ceramic, it features white composite resin side inserts, a set of titanium screws, and titanium pushers and crown that are finished with an insert made of rubber. Visible through the open-worked dial and its engraved display caseback is the HUB4700 automatic chronograph movement – which some may recognise as Zenith’s famed El Primero – with a 50-hour power reserve and a running rate of 5Hz. And in yet another melding of materials, a blue alligator strap is stitched onto white rubber. Originally introduced in 2014, the Spirit of Big Bang collection does exactly what it says on the tin. It captures the spirit of the Big Bang while sharing… Read More

WATCHSPOTTING: Hublot at the FIFA World Cup 2018

It’s FIFA World Cup time! And with the 2018 competition well underway, it’s been easy to tell who the soccer fans are in Australia right now. We’re the bleary-eyed zombies passed out at our desks or aimlessly shuffling about the streets. The ones who have spent the last two weeks staying up way too late and starting our days way too early, trying to catch every minute of football action (ah, the joys of living on the other side of the world). And while the world game tournament has been more than entertaining for us football fanatics – though perhaps a little disappointing if you’re a fan of the Socceroos or defending champs, Germany – it’s also proved the perfect backdrop to do some watch spotting. And with Hublot serving as the Official Timekeeper, a partnership that has seen them kit out all the referees with the brand’s own goal-detecting smart watch, we thought we’d take one eye off the games and see what other Hublots we could spot off the pitch. Diego Maradona Probably the most famous hands in football history (if you don’t know what I’m talking about just google “Hand of God goal”), this one was easy… Read More
