Established in 1980, Hublot watches have become closely aligned with sport, and football in particular. Known for their bold use of colour, Hublot watches carry a distinctive character. Their oversized Big Bang model is especially notable, finding overnight success since its release in 2005, and scooping multiple awards.
The Big Bang was resolutely a masculine watch until 2008, when, for the first time, female models were released. These ladies’ watches featured smaller cases, gem-set bezels and eye-catching colours.
The King Power, released in 2009, took the concept of the oversized watch a step further with early models measuring a significant 48mm in diameter.
The Swiss watch brand has been linked with a number of sports, including cricket, American football, basketball and Formula One. But Hublot’s connection with football is especially strong. Forming partnerships with teams such as Manchester United, Paris Saint-Germain, Juventus and FC-Bayern, the likes of José Mourinho and Pelé, have been engaged as Ambassadors.
Hublot work with an array of materials, including carbon fibre, ceramic, kevlar, magnesium, tantalum and tungsten.
A landmark year in the history of Hublot was 2004 when Jean-Claude Biver, formerly of Blancpain, assumed the role of CEO. Hublot was since acquired by the luxury group LVMH, where Biver now oversees the watch division, including Hublot, TAG Heuer, and Zenith.
