The movement is the motor that drives and defines the brand, developed totally inhouse, and now with the further development taking it to a new level. These new proportions open a new door for the future and truly an iconic moment for the brand.
For those not familiar with the brand, Hublot in French means “porthole”, which was the subtle aesthetic influence behand the case designs for the timepieces. The brand began in the early 1980’s and captured the luxury feel with the masculine designs, and the Big Bang 44 ‘Original’ watch. Definitive and dramatic this timepiece from the beginning to the newly released is the most coveted of them all.

Lightweight and durable linen is a symbol of elegance.
