The best Hublot watches from LVMH watch week 2020
Hublot CEO Ricardo Guadalupe was in town last week to unveil the brand’s latest novelties, in front of journalists, retailers and collectors.
Hublot unveiled a world’s first timepiece at LVMH Watch Week, some new limited editions and a never-before-seen dial.
Here are some of the highlights:
Hublot Big Bang Unico Integral
Hublot has finally caved to the metal bracelet market and produced it's very first sports watch with an integrated metal strap. Watches like AP’s Royal Oak, Rolex Datejust and Patek Phillipe Nautilus are iconic because of their bracelets, so it makes sense for Hublot to have made one for its flagship Big Bang line. The Integral comes in all-black ceramic, satin-finished and with black-plated titanium screws.
Hublot Big Bang MP-11 Red Magic
The main draw with Hublot’s Red Magic is the bright red ceramic case. It’s so hard to create that Hublot owns the patent for the material. The dial features seven barrels which can hold a whopping 14 days of power after being manually-wound, while the days of power reserve count down on a wheel at the far left of the barrel system. The small dial is solid sapphire, with red hands to match the case. The MP-11 is limited to just 100 pieces.
Hublot Classic Fusion Gold Crystal
The unique dial of Hublot’s new Gold Crystal range is exactly that – a 24-karat gold crystal created in Hublot’s mad-hat research and development lab. The dial – of which no two are alike – is created by heating gold until it basically becomes a gas. Once the gas hits a cold surface, it collects in a crystallised form. Then Hublot wraps the dial in a ceramic case, further highlighting that striking gold dial.
Hublot Spirit of Big Bang Rainbow
Hublot’s larger-than-life rainbow watches always command attention, and this year the brand has chosen to adorn its rectangular Spirit collection with precious stones. The case is made of Hublot’s own King Gold material, and the 42mm skeletonised dial features a ring of sapphires, rubies, topazes, tsavorites and amethysts around the bezel.
