Hublot is indeed a child amongst the old giants of Swiss, but within years of its foundation in 1980, it became known as the watch of European nobles. Only a few brands can claim that they got successful as fast as Hublot did. This early success created a podium that has enabled the purity of Carlo Croc’s vision.

Mаkіng thе іmроѕѕіblе роѕѕіblе, Hublоt сrеаtеѕ thе fіrѕt vibrantly соlоurеd сеrаmіс wаtсh саllеd bіg bang Unісо red mаgіс. This time, Hublot devoted its innovative approach to ceramics. By creating new materials – the first ceramic with vibrant colours – Hublot re-used its unlimited imagination to achieve a world-class design.
