The “BODE BANG”, a Big Bang created for Bode Miller

Hublot’s partnership with the American skier Bode Miller is being sealed by the
“Bode Bang”, created by Hublot for the legendary champion of the skiing world.


Hublot has today announced its partnership with the Alpine ski world championships and the Nordic ski world championships in 2011. The watch brand is reinforcing its involvement with the world of skiing. Already partnered with the enfant terrible of skiing, the American Bode Miller, Hublot is also sponsoring Dario Cologna, the best Swiss cross-country skier ever.

The enfant terrible of skiing and world champion in all disciplines in 2008, has had a Big Bang named in his honour. The partnership between the watchmaking brand and Bode Miller came about when the skier visited the manufacture’s workshops.

Fascinated by the expertise and meticulousness of the watchmakers, he set out to craft his own watch. His meeting with Hublot CEO Jean-Claude Biver led to an immediate mutual understanding. Both passionate, direct men with an expressive and unconventional manner of speech, they quickly found a host of shared values.

The talented, feisty and determined skier, and the inventive, exceptionally energetic boss both demonstrate great generosity through their involvement in supporting humanitarian causes. The creation of the Bode Bang presented today is the fruit of this bond: together, they decided to divert some of the watch’s royalties to the Turtle Ridge Foundation, founded by Bode Miller and his family in 2005 (www.turtleridgefoundation.org) to share his success with those less fortunate in life, an ambition equally dear to Jean-Claude Biver and Bode Miller.
