To date, Hublot remains to be one of the youngest Swiss luxury watchmakers around. The brand itself is synonymous with its ever-popular Hublot Big Bang series of watches, some of which could fetch a pretty penny. Hublot also follows along the same path as many other watchmakers by having its own soirée to introduce its latest watches known as Hublot Geneva Days Novelties 2019 collection.
This saw the addition of five new watches as well as a new collection of straps. All of the latest watches to come out from the Hublot Geneva Days Novelties 2019 collection comes with plenty of variations and interchangeable straps. These are new pieces of Hublot’s innovation, where changing of the strap is as easy as a push of a button.
One that stands out is the Classic Fusion, both of which are designed in collaboration with pop artist, Richard Orlinski. As for the Big Bang, Hublot pairs up with Sang Bleu’s Swiss creative director, tattoo artist Maxime Plescia-Büchi.
If you’re looking to breathe some new life into your current collection, you may want to consider some of the watches below.
One of the more ostentatious watches to come out from the Hublot Geneva Days Novelties 2019 collection is the Classic Fusion Aerofusion Chronograph Orlinski Red Magic. What makes it so special is its collaboration with pop artist Orlinski, giving it a distinctive shade of red on your wrist. This is with the help of Hublot’s patented red ceramic, bringing together a wide range of emotions through the use of colour alone. The Classic Fusion Aerofusion Chronograph also features Orlinski’s angular styles, much like his sculptures with sharp three-dimensional sculpted lines and a polished finish. If that isn’t enough to salivate you, this watch is limited to only 200 pieces worldwide. Of course, there are three other variants of the Classic Fusion Aerofusion Chronograph in Black Magic, Green Ceramic, and King Gold Pavé.
Golf watches don’t usually get the respect they deserve with only a handful seeing the light of day. Hublot is changing that with the Big Bang Unico Golf Blue Carbon. As its name suggests, both the case and bezel of the watch is layered with carbon fibre featuring a blue texalium upper layer. The dial itself is made out of a matte blue skeleton, giving you a view of the HUB1580 self-winding movement with a golf function included. With the Big Bang Unico Golf Blue Carbon, you can now keep track of how many shots you’ve taken per hole as well as your overall score.
Hublot has been a pioneer when it came to shaping and colouring sapphires. With three distinct colours already done (smoked black, red, and transparent), Hublot continues on its colourimetric journey with the Spirit of Big Bang Yellow Sapphire and Blue Sapphire. Hublot achieves a level of transparency for its two latest additions to the Spirit of Big Bang series by fusing copper (Cu) with aluminium oxide (Al2O3). This allows the watches to be the most durable while still being highly transparent and scratch-resistant. It has also managed to shave off some weight, making it as light as titanium while being as hard as diamonds. Both the Spirit of Big Bang Yellow Sapphire and Blue Sapphire are limited to only 100 pieces each with a self-winding skeleton chronograph movement.
Richard Orlinski has been Hublot’s creative partner since 2017, bringing his graphic universe and faceted style into the world of watchmaking. The Classic Fusion Tourbillon 5-Day Power Reserve Orlinksi is one such watch, blending Orlinski’s contemporary designs with Hublot’s technological expertise. There are three variants to this watch, which is Sapphire, King Gold, and Black Magic. What makes these watches even better is its exclusivity at only 30 pieces each worldwide. It’s 45mm wide with ultra-modern open-work architecture, showcasing its wide mechanism apertures highlighting its gears and tourbillon cage.
The Big Bang Unico White series of watches from Hublot breathes refinement and minimalism, with just a splash of lavishness. What’s great about it is its 42mm dial, making it the ideal size for both genders. The Unico movement itself is protected by four patents, which allow it to be just 6.75mm thin on an overall 14.5mm case. Another great thing about the Big Bang Unico White series is that it is just one watch — in either King Gold or Titanium — in a total of six different versions.
