In 1980, when Carlo Crocco created the Hublot watch in gold fitted with the first natural black rubber strap in the history of matchmaking, the watch proved to be a market success and laid the basis for the watch manufacture. It took 3 years of research to create the strap and to preserve Hublot’s personality and extend its range to include an array of collections.

In 2008, Hublot agreed a sponsorship deal with the football club Manchester United, worth £4 million a year. Manchester United Football Club is an English football club, based at Old Trafford in Trafford, Greater Manchester. It is one of the most popular football clubs in the world. Manchester United was a founding member of the Premier League in 1992, and has played in the top division of English football since 1938, with the exception of the 1974–75 season. Average attendances at the club have been higher than any other team in English football for all but six seasons since 1964–65.

In order to celebrate Manchester United’s 130th anniversary, Hublot issued the Red Devil Bang watch, crafted from satin-polished black ceramic, the Hublot Red Devil Bang measures 44.5mm in diameter and features a strap in ribbed black rubber. Unique to the Red Devil Bang are bezel lugs in red composite resin; these eye-catching accents echo the dial details, most notably the Manchester United logo at 3 o’clock. It also features a 45-minute chronograph counter, specifically engineered to measure the halves of a football match, and it is fitted with glare-proofed sapphire crystals. It is water resistant to 100 meters.

Hublot is also related to ski and so, related to ski manufacturer Zai, they produced their All Black skis which bring carbon fiber, fibreglass, steel, rubber and Graubunden stone together for a “faster and more dynamic” glide down the Alpine slopes.

In addition to ski, Hublot is Bode MNiller, the American 2008 Overall World Cup title holder, sponsor.

According to other sports, in August Hublot became familiar to polo field for the first time lending its name to an Argentinean polo team headed by ambassador Miguel Novillo Astrada.

Before Polo Gold Cup held in Gstaad, the company presented winners of the Gstaad Palace with a Big Bang chronograph from the Polo Gold Cup Gstaad limited series.

(Hublot Big Bang King All Black Blue Watch)

The elegant combination of black and dark blue lends the biggest Big Bang. The blend between colours and materials is also in its blue alligator strap, injected with black rubber on its inner surface. The numerals, carved into the black ceramic, stand out in assistance alongside the rotating unidirectional bezel.

The Hublot Big Bang King All Black Blue watch features 300 meters of water resistance, diver’s style face with large legible dial and the rotating diver bezel. According to the blue on the hands and hour indicators, they seem to exist only on the periphery, though you can tell the insides are coloured in black, the edges are all deep blue. It features a HUB1400 automatic movement. The blue alligator strap actually sandwiches a layer of rubber that makes it more flexible.

Hublot Bigger Bang 44mm

Hublot is proud to present this masterpiece of high watchmaking craftsmanship. It includes the first “Tourbillon Column-Wheel Chronograph”.

For the first time the chronograph mechanism and column wheel are visible via the dial at 12:00 o’clock.

Not only can the person who wears this masterpiece admire the execution of each component, but also observe when the chronograph is activated by pressing the push piece, and the operation of the column-wheel mechanism.

The “Bigger Bang” became one of the most advanced technological research.

Hublot’s master watchmakers are extremely proud of this outstanding innovation in the technical and mechanical watchmaking world.
