Hublot? “A different way of progressing,” say the connoisseurs of this unique Swiss watch making company where each second merges into the next at lightning speed! This dream and its growth begun and developed by Jean-Claude Biver, the Hublot Chairman, and Ricardo Guadalupe, the CEO, have made the brand a real success story of which the Big Bang, King Power and Classic Fusion are the emblems of a tradition in movement. From the grand complication watches by way of the research and manufacturing of new materials to worldwide collaboration like the Football World Cup tm, Ferrari or Los Angeles Lakers, Hublot represents the fusion between watch making tradition and the creative vision of the 21st century.
Last, but not least, to quote Hublot Chairman Jean-Claude Biver: “The exceptional vehicle or collectors' car is often the extension of childhood toys with which grown-ups fulfil their childhood dreams. It's this emotional dimension which creates the real value and represents the true meaning of the collectors' car. Cars and watches both belong to the same world – dreams and toys!”
