Last year, we saw the bold move of French multinational brand Louis Vuitton Moët Hennessy, a.k.a. LVMH decline showcasing at the biggest watch fair, Baselworld, in favour of hosting their own event in Dubai. This year, with travel restrictions in place, the brand have decided to launch the newness from their prestigious brands digitally. In this article, we take a look at some of the pieces to come from Hublot.
The Swiss watchmaker celebrates a milestone 40th anniversary year with a stellar collection of groundbreaking timepieces for both men and women. Known best for resetting industry standards by disrupting watchmaking norms, Hublot combines revolutionary materials with inspired collaborations, rounding out a series of exceptional timepieces that are available now.
The Classic Fusion Orlinski 40mm
French contemporary artist Richard Orlinski’s multifaceted forms interpret time in slick monochrome blue and black ceramic, enlarging Hublot’s creative vision for 2021. Technical innovation combined with Orlinsky’s pop art-inspired sensibility evolves into imaginative wearable art for the wrist.
The Big Bang Integral Ceramic
Integrated all-ceramic elements—the case, caseback, bezel, bracelet—elevate the Big Bang’s cool uniformity. The innovative single color, single material Big Bang adds a scratch-resistant blue, grey, and white to the best selling all-black ceramic introduced in Dubai.
Big Bang One Click 33mm
Feminine versatility is ideal in either King Gold or stainless steel with an array of interchangeable straps that easily ‘click’ from day into night. A glittering diamond bezel paired with Hublot’s brilliant One-Click system makes switching up your look a fashionable breeze.
Spirit of Big Bang Ceramic Beige 39mm
Unexpected beige ceramic combined with King Gold or titanium is a hallmark of Hublot’s boundless creativity. A timeless interpretation of the tonneau (barrel-shaped) Spirit of Big Bang in beige might represent a color free neutrality but instead enhances a profoundly modern and elegant timepiece.
Spirit of Big Bang Tourbillon 5-day Power Reserve Carbon White
A pure definition of Hublot’s Art of Fusion, a limited edition Big Bang tourbillon combines disparate elements to become more than the sum of its parts. A skeleton movement explicitly designed for this tonneau-shaped case meets white carbon to become a masterpiece of contradictions and translucence.
