Hublot Unveils Big Bang Unico Full Baguette King Gold Rainbow

In this age of perfectly accurate clocks in everything from our phones to our cars, wearing a mechanical timepiece is at least as much an act of personal expression as it is a practical choice. Hublot has always aimed at those looking to make a louder personal statement, combining daring futuristic aesthetics with high end finishing and craftsmanship. For its latest release, the brand takes this approach to 11. The new Hublot Big Bang Unico Full Baguette King Gold Rainbow is a flamboyant showcase of some of the brand’s best material and finishing techniques, coupled to one of its boldest signature designs.
Without a doubt, the most dramatic element of the Hublot Big Bang Unico Full Baguette King Gold Rainbow is its case. The angular 45mm form of the Big Bang is rendered in Hublot’s proprietary 18K King Gold alloy, then fully encrusted with 100 precious stones. The process of “icing out” a watch is precise and labor intensive under normal circumstances, but to achieve the rainbow effec..

Haute Time Talks About Success Factors With Hublot CEO Ricardo Guadalupe

What has been only a short few weeks looks almost like another lifetime, when we were able to sit down with Ricardo Guadalupe, CEO of Hublot, to talk about the success factors of the brand. At the time, increased tensions between Iran and other parties in the region seemed to be the biggest fear, but little did we know that soon the Covid-19 pandemic would rule our daily lives and made the LVMH Watch Week the only fair that has been taken place this year so far. Nevertheless, was it a more than an interesting conversation in which he shared freely his insights in what makes Hublot such a success story. READ MORE

Hublot Big Bang Unico Integral: Big News For The Big Bang

Can the introduction of an integrated bracelet for a watch ever be big news? It is when it concerns a timepiece that quite literally was a ‘Big Bang’ in the world of watches. Fifteen ago, Hublot launched the Art of Fusion at Baselworld with the Big Bang, a watch that has become in no-time an icon in its own right. It propelled the then niche brand to the forefront of luxury watchmaking. A key element has always been the rubber strap, which has been the signature of Hublot ever since its founding.

This doesn’t mean that Hublot never offered its watches on a bracelet, but to have an integrated one on their signature model is quite a thing. While Hublot’s straps are a benchmark in the industry, some clients prefer a bracelet instead. At this tier of the watch market, bracelets are a thing, with so many excellently constructed signature designs out there. Yet where the bar is set high, Hublot likes to raise it.

They met this challenge, not by a complex design but instead going back to ba..

Hublot Opens New Aspen Boutique With Spirit of Big Bang Rockies Limited Edition

It’s just past the stroke of nine, and I’m packed into the Silver Queen — a sleek black gondola flying up Aspen Mountain into the “white room.” Inside are a half-dozen other hopefuls, all keenly anticipating making the first tracks in last night’s freshly fallen snow, which casts a dreamy contrast against the sharp blue skies of another bright Colorado morning. Skiers call this glorious type of day a “bluebird,” and short of going chest-deep on an early spring blower, this is probably about as good as it gets.

It’s been a little over a year since Hublot became the official timekeeper of Aspen Snowmass, one of North America’s longest-running, and most prestigious ski destinations. But this year, Hublot is taking its partnership with the storied mountain (whose mid-century history dates back to the Army’s legendary 10th Mountain Division) a step further, opening its first seasonal monobrand boutique in the resort’s town center. It’s a unique move, considering most of these types of ret..

Hublot cut the ribbon of its first U.S. mountain-resort boutique in Aspen, Colorado. The Swiss luxury watchmaker celebrated the grand opening by launching the Spirit of Big Bang Special Edition Rockies collection with a cocktail reception and dinner with Olympic Gold Medalist, and world champion, Bode Miller.
Jean-Francois Sberro, Bode Miller With the unequaled landscape of Aspen as the setting, VIP guests and members of the media witnessed as Jean-Francois Sberro, President of Hublot North America, officially opened the doors of the boutique that features the latest models from the famed brand. In a visual performance for the unveiling of the Spirit of Big Bang Rockies (of which there are only 25 pieces), the hazy white glass of the location’s main vitrines faded away to present the world to the new timepiece.
