  • Hublot Rebuilds The Famed Antikythera Mechanism

    Hublot Rebuilds The Famed Antikythera Mechanism

    Discovered in 1901, the Antikythera Mechanism has long been called one of the earliest computers. For years scientists had no idea what it did, ascribing it with almost mystical functionality. Through the use of advanced imaging techniques, we now know that this lump of crusty, corroded brass was actually an astronomical computer that allowed ancient Greeks to predict the passage of the… Read More

  • Hublot's Complicated F1 Tourbillon Chronograph Watch

    I am not always sure what Jean-Claude Biver is thinking. The machine-gun minded Swiss CEO covers so many bases when deciding what new Hublot watches are made that it can be almost impossible to predict what will come next. However, I do know one thing: Mr. Biver is watch lover. It might sound ironic, or silly, but when a watch lover runs a watch brand, it is a good thing. And trust me, not… Read More

  • Hublot Cathedral Minute Repeater Tourbillon & Column Wheel Chronograph Watch Hands-On

    The horological highlight from Hublot this year was the long-named “Cathedral” Minute Repeater Tourbillon and Column Wheel Chronograph watch. In a King Power style case, this watch boasts a case formed out of carbon fiber and a very complex movement that has (Yup, you guessed it!) the time, a tourbillon, a minute repeater, and a chronograph.

  • Hublot Red Magic & All Black Green Watches Hands-On

    Last year Hublot released their first watch with a colored sapphire crystal. The crystal itself was tinted red on the very cool Hublot King Power F1 Monza watch. It was shared with me that more tinted crystals watches would come. Hublot is thus far sticking with red, but more colors will come soon – no doubt. Here for you is the Hublot Big Bang Red Magic collection for 2011 –… Read More

  • Hublot "Key Of Time" Watch

    If you aren’t familiar with the movement in the La Cle du Temps, let me explain it. It starts with a tourbillon based movement, where the tourbillon juts out of the bottom side of the watch. This is called a vertically mounted tourbillon. You can see it in the picture looking like some space age propeller. The watch dial, to tell the time, is on the upper right of the dial. The lower left… Read More

  • Hublot Masterpiece MP-01 Watch

    Hublot goes tonneau. Fans of the brands have been asking for a non Big Bang or King Power inspired watch for a long time. Something is finally here, and this is just the first of more to come. This is the first Hublot Masterpiece collection (Ref. MP-01), and will be a range of higher-end Hublot timepieces with in-house movements that will be positioned between standard Hublot watches and the… Read More

  • Hublot GreenGo Bang Watch: To Celebrate Partying

    Have you been to the Gstaad Palace? No? Well then I am sorry to say that you probably don’t know about GreenGo – the popular club that is now celebrating its 40th anniversary. I don’t think it has changed since it was created. According to their site (and images), the club remains in its 1970s era fittings. Looks like what would happen if you built a lounge in an underground… Read More

  • Hublot King Power Ayrton Senna F1 Watches

    The two limited edition Ayrton Senna watches from Hublot are quite interesting. Hublot here has been able to showcase a few new things. The first of which are all carbon-fiber versions of their King Power watch cases. Often times cases will have carbon fiber inserts, but theses 48mm wide cases are in all carbon fiber, though part of Hublot’s typical sandwich construction. This in a sense… Read More

  • Hublot King Power Formula 1 Monza Watch

    Hublot really did something special with this watch, and it looks just great. Totally epitomizing what fresh Hublot designs can feel like. In addition to the great King Power model based design, this watch has two special innovations that you will really like. First, is a world’s first developed by Hublot – a red sapphire crystal. A few years ago Rolex developed a green… Read More

  • Inside Hublot, Watch Maker Experience

    The myth of Jean-Claude Biver is as much a man, as the man himself. While many people wouldn’t necessarily consider the CEO of a watch brand a celebrity or an icon; to watch lovers and people working in the industry, few people have the level of respect and close to attention that Mr. Biver enjoys. And enjoy it he does. The prize for the man’s calculated efforts is a sense of pride… Read More

  • Hublot Big Bang King Power: As my 3-year-old son would say, this is "unasseptiple"

    When Hublot first launched the Big Bang I was totally down with the watch. It had a unique style and size as well as a nice pedigree and cost about $15K, not horrible for a watch of this caliber. Now they’re just getting greedy. The King Power is just a fat watch with a weird, all-black face that almost renders it useless. This model has a ceramic bracelet, which is unusual, and is… Read More
