Think of Hublot and the first thing to spring to mind is more than likely the brand’s commitment to innovation. Not content with simply sticking within the confines of traditional watchmaking, it has proudly made waves in the world of Haute Horlogerie. The art of fusion is at the heart of the brand’s identity and the driving force behind truly unforgettable collections such as the Big Bang and Classic Fusion ranges.
Audemars Piguet’s men’s watches generally garner all the column inches but it takes just as much care and attention over its women’s collections, just with a little less fanfare. Words by Laura McCreddie-Doak.
The Royal Oak Offshore collection is a force to be reckoned with. Since it was launched in 1993 the collection has changed the face of watchmaking, taking Audemars Piguet timepieces to a level never before seen.
Think of Hublot and the brand’s bold designs are more than likely the first things that spring to mind. A champion of the Art of Fusion, the brand has continually taken strides to create truly remarkable timepieces that exceed expectation.
It’s no secret that we’re all about diamonds and thrills here at ROX but extreme adventurer Sean Conway took thrills to the next level as he visited our Argyll Arcade boutique with Bremont on Thursday evening.

Hublot is a champion of ground breaking innovation with a determination to change the world of horologie. This might seem like a bold claim, however, the respected brand has earned a reputation for doing exactly that.
Think time traveller and one man more than likely springs to mind – Dr Who. However, you don’t need to don a long stripped scarf or hop in a Tardis to get from A to B, and you certainly don’t need to make your way across galaxies to lay claim to a GMT timepiece. In fact, for any modern man who finds himself jetting off on holiday with his family and friends or off on a business trip a GMT model is the perfect accessory.
They say if you expect the unexpected you might just be prepared. This is something the dedicated team at Bell & Ross appreciate, with professional designers, engineers and watch makers committed to creating timepieces created with professional use in mind. Their motto is simple – the essentials of each timepiece should never be compromised by the superfluous.
Time might wait for no man but style is eternal. Proud to stand out from the crowd, Hublot has long been a brand that has dared to be different. Continually pushing forward new and innovative ideas, it is a champion of the art of fusion creating timepieces that are both charming and contemporary.
Creative opulence was a key focus of Gucci’s Fashion Week offerings, with creative director Alessandro Michele showing off the boldness of the brand in all of its glory. Never a fashion house to shy away from standing out from the crowd, the recent SS18 showcase in Milan didn’t disappoint. Kooky desirables such as sparkling capes met chic coats and berets in a 80s and glam rock inspired show.
Dynamic and forward thinking Hublot is a champion of the art of fusion. Not content with sticking with the status quo it is a brand that hasn’t shied away from change, instead choosing to embrace the evolution of watch design. Innovation is at the heart of Hublot’s core values and its pioneering approach to master craftsmanship has secured its reputation as a creative force.
Just as time doesn’t stand still neither does watch design. Mastering the art of creating modern and forward thinking timepieces that stand shoulder to shoulder with respected traditional designs could seem like an unforgiving task, however, it is something the limited edition Bell & Ross BR-X1 HyperStellar Skeleton Chronograph manages with ease.
Inspired by one of the leading female figures of World War Two the Bremont Solo-32-LC is an unforgettable timepiece. Named after Lettice Curtis, widely regarded as the most remarkable female pilot of the Second World War, the British made watch is a fitting tribute to one of the nation’s most renowned women.
Hublot has proudly announced its second partnership with boxing great Floyd ‘Money’ Mayweather, the undefeated, 12-time world champion, ahead of his fight against UFT mega-star Conor McGregor this weekend.
Art and music have always been intrinsically linked. Hand in hand together they have shaped and indeed divided opinion whilst continually taking strides to champion forward thinking ideas. So it is only natural that Hublot has joined forces once again with Depeche Mode to create a limited edition timepiece that is a master of both style and substance.
