The Hublot Big Bang is one of those unique timepieces in the bloated luxury watch market in that it is instantly recognisable. The "Art of Fusion" is clearly defined in every single model. These aspirational watches have a justifiable cult following due to their unique design philosophy, class leading build quality and comfort of wear from a utilitarian sports timepiece. The Big Bang family houses many incredible advances in material R and D and in-house complications, including the skeleton Unico chronograph, the Unico Golf, the Mecano inspired Meca-10, the ridiculous MP11, the unusual Sang Bleu, the Perpetual calendar and the Tourbillon. And not forgetting the blingtastic encrusted Rainbow and Paraiba models and the, remarkably elegant and personalisable, ladies 38mm models.
The Classic Fusion range from Hublot takes all that made the Big Bang famous and covetable and applies a more classic style to create another instantly recognisable timepiece with a more sophisticated aesthetic. The Classic Fusion range is Hublots most versatile with three hand models ranging from 33mm to 45mm and Chronographs in 45mm and 42mm. All come available in a myriad of colours and case materials, including Hublots own King Gold. Complications are not overlooked either, including a 5 day Tourbillon, Aerofusion skeleton models and the incredible Orlinski range. If you fancy something completely unique and handcrafted, check out the Berlutti models.
Being bolder and more powerful than its kin the Big Bang, the King Power uses Hublot's Art of Fusion concept to combine unexpected materials to create a brilliant juxtaposition of elements in these fine timepieces and making a big statement measuring in at 48mm.
The Hublot Spirit of Big Bang offers the Art of Fusion concept in a truly stunning Tonneau shaped case. Wrist presence is assured with this oversized timepiece without compromising comfort, due to the wrist wrapping design. The Spirit of Big Bang is available in 38mm three hand and 45 and 42mm Chronograph versions. Cases come in steel, ceramic, the patented King Gold and the outrageous all Sapphire Glass. The Spirit of Big Bang is also home to a mesmerising skeleton Tourbillon.
Hublot watches have become a dominant force in the high end utilitarian watch industry, with a massive fan base, bordering on cultism, within a short period of time. Initially starting out as MDM watches in 1976, Carlo Crocco created the brand because he wanted a luxury watch that would easily withstand life on his yacht. Fast track a few years, after relative obscurity, and Jean Claude Biver (industry genius, having previously saved Blancpain and Omega) becomes CEO of the brand and creates the Big Bang. Hublot watches are all beautifully crafted and yet designed to withstand anything you can throw at it. A Hublot epitomises the one watch ideal (Ie, the only watch you'll ever need). Hugely popular, innovative, covetable and aspirational. Hublot are here to stay at the very top of the horological game.
