Hublot Classic is the epitome of the name; classic in design, beauty, elegance and perfection. While watch making is an ancient profession, Hublot only joined the ranks in 1980. Carlo Crocco hailed from a watch making family, but didn’t strike out on his own until then, creating the first black rubber strap to be placed on a luxury timepiece. Hublot, which means “porthole” in French, opened the door for others to witness the quality and craftsmanship placed in each Hublot design.
Worn by famous celebrities, Royal family members, actors, performers, and sports figures, this watch-maker quickly gained fame in the industry and marked the meaning of true craftsmanship. The Hublot Classic collection is a collection of ladies, men’s, and unisex watches that redefine sophistication. Simplicity made exquisite is the best way to describe the marvel of this collection. Available in 18K gold or stainless steel, and of course the signature black rubber strap that defines Hublot. Featuring hours, minutes, seconds and date functions with refined quartz movement.
The Hublot Classic large men’s watches bring to life the name, a porthole design that reflects in the 36mm case, combining the elegance of polished and brushed metal with twelve screws that serve dual functions. The screws attach to the bezel and provide both structural and practical applications, keeping the bezel secured and detailing the hour marks. The dial bears simply the date at 3 o’clock and the brand’s logo, in a rich black or deep burgundy color. The top of the line favorite in the Classic series is the unisex midsize, which also showcases the porthole design, is crafted with a 32mm case and contains the same quality quartz movement with the signature black rubber strap. The stainless steel masterpiece is also a favorite of the collection, bringing a more refined elegance to the series. The case and the bezel are constructed of the stainless steel and the dial is silver flamed; the hours very simply silver markers raised up and the date still set at the 3 o’clock mark.
While this watch is a perfect gift for any male or female on your list, the ladies 28mm luxurious selection is contained in a steel case, surrounded by a gold bezel and inlayed wit a black ebony dial, touched with simple raised gold lines for the hours, and the date placed at 3 o’clock. The elegant touch added by the gold hour, minute and second hands, completed with a plain black rubber strap. Allowing the wearer to move from an afternoon of tennis to a most elaborate dinner party with ease.
Hublot Classic has placed itself in the heart of the watch making industry, setting standards that only others dream to follow. Precise timepieces that encompass the simplicity and elegance Hublot watches are recognized for, and reinforced in such continued excellence of watch making. Rubber straps were not a fashion phenomenon for Hublot, they were a creation that represented the image and life style that was meant to be the signature for decades to come.
