Originated in 1980, Hublot has since then created a permanent space in the hearts of individuals with a refined taste. In the 1970s Carlo Crocco, the renowned Breil watchmaker, started to design a piece that he named Hublot (after “porthole” in French). It was the first watch with a natural rubber strap, designed for distinctiveness and comfort. A modest factory in Switzerland was the epicentre of manufacturing Hublot watches.
Hublot watches are known for the amalgamation of materials. The fusion of carbon fibre, rubber, and ceramics is what led to the making of this revolutionary watch. Unlike the exotic leather and gold material watches, Hublot offered something entirely different; comfortable rubber. The fusion of materials may not make Hublot watches unique, but the seamless process definitely makes them stand out from the crowd of luxury watch brands. Hublot took a complete departure from conventional designs and used passion as a driving force to swoop the world.
The efforts of Carlo Crocco (the founder) lead to the origin of Hublot watches. After that, Jean-Claude Biver was the man who made Hublot a household name. In 2005, Biver pushed the launch of the Big Bang watches. This collection is still a flagship for Hublot Watches. The famous watch collections that have made their mark in the market are Big Bang, King Power, and Classic Fusion.
