In February 2010, Hublot announced that HEAT guard, Dwyane Wade, would join the “Hublot family,” a highly elite circle of Hublot ambassadors who are living legends in their respective disciplines. Wade’s commitment to excellence, which he strives for on and off the court, and his passion for the sport, parallels Hublot’s vast achievements in fine watch making…

Brought together through everything from a shared passion for technique to a common consumer base, watch and car manufacturers have a long history of joining forces. While it seems that every notable watchmaker has allied itself with a top automobile brand, one of today’s most visible partnerships is that between Hublot and Ferrari.
I happen to love watches like this. Take a little inspiration from antiquity, mix in traditional horology, and add some modern design. Before you know it, you have some totally interesting and wild timepiece that does not fit into any particular box. This is the 2013 limited edition Hublot Antikythera SunMoon watch. Part calendar watch, part astronomical watch, this is horological obsession at its best…
Hublot and Shawn “Jay Z” Carter, one of the most important cultural icons of our time, have joined together in a creative collaboration resulting in two stunning timepieces in 18k yellow gold or ceramic as part of the newly unveiled Shawn Carter Collection.
Hublot updates the Big Bang with a larger 45mm wide Big Bang UNICO that includes an in-house movement. We go hands-on with a full story on the timepiece’s history.
What do you get if you mix the Hublot Aero Bang and the Classic Fusion? The Classic Fusion Aero Chronograph (Chrono), of course. For 2013, Hublot releases this new model family in both titanium and 18k red gold that is a pleasant combination of two successful product lines…
When a brand like Hublot states that they’ve created their most complex watch to date, it’s worth our while to sit up and take notice. Of course, if you pair that development with a Brazilian icon of motorsports, well, then you know you’re in for some visual flair as well.
Hublot extends ceramic even further by releasing the first high-end watch with red ceramic. Red is now added to white, black, blue, brown, and gray which are used in more and more watches each year as ceramic’s popularity increases.
I don’t miss a chance to spend time with Jean-Claude Biver, Chairman of Hublot, and honorary godfather of the modern luxury watch industry. While we do spend time talking about new Hublot watches and some of the interest things that happened at the Baselworld 2013 watch show.
It is just like a Ferrari to one-up someone. Hublot’s relationship with Ferrari continues with vigor into 2013 with the introduction of the intensely engineered Masterpiece MP-05 LaFerrari watch. With 50 days (days!) of power reserve this timepiece is record setting, and it also has a tourbillon.
When I checked a few days ago I learned that Kobe Bryant has over 15 million fans on his Facebook page. That is a ton of people that Hublot just earned access to in their recent acquisition of Mr. Bryant as their newest mega-popular athlete brand ambassador.
80s loving Europeans (and well, me too) love them some Depeche Mode musical entertainment. Hublot certainly does. Back in 2102 the Swiss brand worked with Depeche Mode to create a limited edition of 12 Big Bang watches each with unique Depeche Mode albums covers (debuted here).
Last year we were the first to bring you coverage of the new Big Bang Ferrari watches from Hublot (here). The Ferrari/Hublot relationship was a big deal and over the last year I’ve learned just how big of a deal it is for Hublot.
This is the Hublot watch for people who don’t traditionally like Hublot. It is in the Classic Fusion collection and has a skeletonized tourbillon movement. To be honest, I sort of get a sense of glee when I post a picture of an Hublot watch on my wrist, share it on Instagram (aBlogtoWatch), and people battle on whether it is wonderful or hideous in the comments.
Jean-Claude Biver is a living legend in the watch industry. If you are someone in the industry you either admire him, are jealous of him, or perhaps dislike him.
Not to be outdone by Audemars Piguet and their claims to Formula 1 racing, Hublot has announced the F1 King Power Austin as a tribute to the United States Grand Prix which will be held Austin, Texas this November (of 2012). Hublot is also the official watch maker of the F1 series.
