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.
To kick off October, we check out the biggest winners and losers of the Only Watch 2013 charity auction. We also check out new watches from MB&F, Hublot and Panerai and also listen to what John Mayer has to say about watch collecting.
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.
In the fourth edition of our bi-weekly roundup, we check out a rare George Daniels chronograph watch, interview Hublot’s Jean-Claude Biver, check out some new Panerais and visit Lancaster, Pennsylvania.
The Only Watch 2013 charity watch auction which occurs every other year in Monaco is coming up in September of 2013. aBlogtoWatch has created a full list (that we will update as more watches for the auction are released) of all the piece unique (one-of-a-kind) timepieces that will be offered at the event.
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.
In the third edition of our bi-weekly roundup, we take a look at the some of my favorite watches from Baselworld 2013, which includes Hublot, Patek Philippe and Tag Heur. We also check out an interview with Laurent Picciotto of Chronopassion and find out how one can share his/her love of watches with their partners.
After Baselworld 2013 day 1 James, Mark, and myself sit around the kitchen table at the Basel apartment to recap on the day and discuss Rolex, Patek, and more from home base at watchpocalypse 2013.
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.
