Scottish tradition met Swiss innovation in a celebration of the Art of Fusion. Surrounded by 150 privileged guests in the in the grand setting of Hopetoun House on Thursday, November 16, Hublot and its exclusive Scottish partner ROX, hosted a memorable evening celebrating the brand’s well-known motto: The Art of Fusion.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Hublot has never been a brand content with sticking with the status quo. Ambitious and forward thinking Hublot continually takes strides to push the boundaries whilst retaining the skill of traditional craftsmanship. Speaking of what makes the brand stand out from the crowd, Hublot President Jean Claude Biver said: “Being unique is what gives Hublot its extraordinary strength, through the incredible commitment expressed by every single person who works for the brand.”
Hublot has always been a brand proud to stand out against the crowd. It has boldly defied convention and pushed boundaries all in the name of innovation. It is this pioneering determination that has earned Hublot a reputation for its forward thinking approach to horology whilst remaining true to master craftsmanship of watch design.
Hublot are widely regarded as the ‘bad boys’ of Swiss watchmaking, and if that is the case then the Spirit of Big Bang is central to this image. Through their far-reaching experimentation with new colour options, material choices, complications and case sizes Hublot have created some unbelievable timepieces.
On Monday we were thrilled to host the UK stop of the Hublot Golf Cup at the prestigious Archerfield Links. Guests enjoyed the warm weather and 18 holes on the Dirleton Links course, taking time to stop at The Hublot Experience and peruse a range of luxury Hublot timepieces.
Partnerships and collaborations occur frequently in watchmaking, and it is easy to see why they are so useful. In a successful collaboration both entities are able to demonstrate their skill, their creativity and often the work of the other party becomes a vital source of inspiration.
In 1976 HRH The Prince of Wales had the idea to create a charity aimed at providing disadvantaged young people with access to jobs and education. When he left the Royal Navy that same year he used his severance pay to create the Prince’s trust, and 40 years on it has helped over 825,000 young people. Hublot have recognised the important work being carried out, and have identified the need to invest in future generations.
A partnership between Hublot and Ferrari made perfect sense when it was first announced - both are giants of their industry, and both posses an insatiable desire to progress - and it has grown stronger with every collaboration. There have been quite a few joint efforts released, but the timepiece featured here is particularly interesting.
Ferrari’s synonymous reputation and timeless style seems unable to falter. Celebrating a historic 70 years, Ben Oliver shares how Ferrari and their Official Timekeeper Hublot plan to mark this iconic milestone.
With a history dating back 100 years and many of the world’s finest watch and jewellery brands exhibiting their collections year after year, Baselworld is the most important show of its type in the world. This years show saw 300 watch brands unveiling new pieces, and last years event attracted 145,000 visitors from 100 different countries! It’s fair to say then, that for watch lovers like us Baselworld is rather a big deal.
Hublot, the so-called bad boys of haute horlogerie, have proved themselves more than capable of creating beautiful, refined and, quite simply, classy timepieces. The two models featured here are a perfect example of this mode of design, and they build on the foundations laid by previous Classic Fusion models.
The Ultra-thin is a relatively new line of watches. It’s a little bit thinner than the Classic Fusion, more dressy, fits under shirt and cuff a little bit more easily as well. The interesting thing about this one, aside from just how thin it is, is the skeleton face there.
