Brief History of Hublot


Compared to other luxury watch companies, Hublot is relatively new. Italian designer Carlo Crocco founded the company in 1980. However, Crocco was not new to the world of watches. Previously, he worked with the Binda Group, which is popular for its Breil Watches. He combined sleek Italian design with renowned Swiss watchmaking craftsmanship to create something unique. In 1980, Crocco debuted a luxury watch complete with a rubber strap. It was the first time a natural rubber strap had adorned a watch. 

Since its launch, Hublot has continued to create unique watches that blend innovation and luxury. Their design and manufacturing process includes “watchmakers, physicists, chemists, and engineers united under the same roof.”

Why We Love Hublot

Everything about a Hublot watch is bold. They push the envelope of traditional watch aesthetics by using unconventional materials such as rubber or carbon fiber. Hublot watches are not your run-of-the-mill traditional watch. They are daring and extravagant, and we appreciate the forward-thinking design and engineering. You can find Rolex, Cartier and Omega dupes, but rarely a Hublot copycat. If you’re an avid watch collector, you should definitely have a Hublot in your collection. 

Hublot also offers a 2-year warranty on their timepiece, provided they are purchased new and from an authorized retailer. Hublot offers an additional year of warranty coverage if owners register their watches online.

Our Favorite Hublot Watches

Hublot may not have hundreds of timepieces in its lineup, but finding the right one is still time-consuming. Here are our three favorite Hublot watches to help you get started.

Hublot Classic Fusion Titanium Opalin watch with white face and black alligator strap.

TSW Classic Pick: Hublot Classic Fusion Titanium Opalin 38mm – $7,700

The Hublot Classic Fusion Titanium Opalin makes our list as it blends the past with the present. The classic design is a tribute to the first Carlo Crocco-designed watch with a few modern modifications. Though traditional and perfect for the office, the exposed screws on the dial give this watch a rugged feel. 

True to Hublot roots, this watch features a strap with a rubber base. However, atop the rubber, you’ll find textured alligator leather. Swap out the strap for a full-rubber option, and this watch quickly takes you to the weekend.

Inside, Hublot powers the watch with its HUB1110 self-winding movement, and it has water resistance up to 50 meters. It has a 42-hour power reserve, and Hublot treats the crystal with an anti-reflective treatment. 

The Classic Fusion is available in various sizes, from 33mm to 45mm. It’s an excellent choice for all wrist sizes.

Hublot Big Bang Meca-10 watch in all black with red accents.

TSW Stand Out Pick: Hublot Big Bang Meca-10 Black Magic – $24,100

The Hublot Big Bang Meca-10 Black Magic might be monochromatic, but it’s anything but plain. Presented in 2005, the Big Bang model of Hublot watches commanded the attention of watch enthusiasts. 

The exposed hardware, clear dial, and prominent aesthetic make this watch refined yet daring. The case is comprised of a microblasted and polished black ceramic. To provide contrast, Hublot added grooved rubber straps and titanium straps. It’s truly a conversational piece. 

The brand powers the Big Bang Meca-10 with their HUB1201 manual-winding skeleton power reserve movement. It features ten days of power reserve and 100 meters of water resistance. 

The Big Bang is not for the faint of heart. It’s a considerably large watch at 45mm.

A Hublot Aerofusion Chronograph Titanium watch with diamond encrusted dial and black strap.

TSW Chronograph Pick: Hublot Classic Fusion Aerofusion Titanium Diamonds – $22,000

If our above two picks were to meld together somehow, the Classic Fusion Aerofusion Titanium would be the end result. It features the bulk, chronograph and skeleton features of the Big Bang. 

However, it also has a polished and refined aesthetic like the Classic Fusion. It contains a similar alligator and rubber strap and satin titanium accents. If you’re looking for something that stuns, the Aerofusion Titanium fits the bill. Hublot added almost 1.5 carats of diamonds to the bezel. It’s striking and luxurious and will catch the eye with all the functionality of a chronograph watch.   

Hublot added their HUB1155 self-winding skeleton chronograph movement to the Aerofusion Titanium. It’s water resistant to 50 meters, so it may not be your top pick for water sports.
