Hublot Watches

Sunday, 27 September 2009

hublot watchesIn 1980 Carlo Crocco first manufactured the gold named Hublot with the wristlet of black rubber. And this very first model of watch is believed to be the example that put the changes to all the levels of watch making. The royal families were the first people who dragged attention to Hublot, and the trend was successfully accepted by the celebrities. Carlo Crocco was risky, though Hublot was acknowledged as one of the trendiest brands in the watch making sphere. The splendid shape of the watch, black dial plate in minimalism style and the very typical for the Company wristlet of natural rubber.

The unique wristlet has the ability to regenerate when in contact with the skin. The wristlet parts ideally fit the wrist of the bearer and are comfortable, soft and elegant.

In the middle of 90s the rubber appeared to be the top material for manufacturers. It proved the fact that the rubber is the right thing to work for Hublot. For the Hublot brand rubber is not the trendy material but the actual philosophy, life style and image of the Company from its first days. Hublot remains one of the family manufactures with unique mono-product.

Carlo Crocco so concerned and adored with his own designer works and MDM Fund activity, was looking for a person to delegate the authority to manage the Company. And he successfully met Jean-Claude Biver who took over the reins of Hublot.

He was enthusiastic to develop the Company in the future. He was one of those people really were remarkable in the history of watch making.

Supervised by the new Chief Executive Officer Hublot Company reconsidered its philosophy, yet Jean-Claude introduced the concept of merging too different materials as gold and ceramics, tantalum and pink gold, tantalum and magnum.

In addition to materials merging, the new concept provided the merging of the Swiss traditions of watch making with the watch art, while adhering to the unique design of Hublot watches.

In a year Jean-Claude Biver succeeded when he launched the collection Bazel in April 2005 presenting the Big Bang by Hublot being the wonderful merging concept. That was the triumph and there was the rise in orders for watches. A few months later Big Bang was awarded the first international Design Award of 2005 at Geneva Watchmaking Grand Prix followed by the Best Sport Award at the Watches of the Year Ceremony in Japan.

In June 2006 Jean- Biver launched Hublot TV the first Internet TC Channel created by the luxury brand. The Channel makes and announces new on Hublot world.

From then on, keeping the previous shape, it was released in various sizes with assorted complications such as Tourbillon, Large Date, Power Reserve Indicator, Split Seconds.

The merging concept worked at the highest possible extent. The model was manufactured in the diameter of 4mm and 44mm.  In 2007 the third version in the model line for divers was presented, Big Bang King with 48mm case. Though, the watches sit ideally for both thin and wide wrists.

In early 2007 Jean -Claude Biver was acknowledged as the Best Manager in Watch making Sphere and as the Best Communicator.

In February 2007 Hublot opened its first brand store in Paris, in Saint-Honoré Street.

In October the Company launched its first watches manufactured by own facilities. Hublot developed the design based on the newest alloy of aluminum and magnum, Hublonium, used in production of mechanisms and cases for Mag Bang models! Mag Bang was awarded the «Best Technology Innovation ». Later on, the watches were accepted as the Best Watches by Caesar magazine.

The Company still keeps manufacturing Classic Watches demanded by over 30% customers. With the attempts made by Jean-Claude this collection renewed.

In early 2008 the Company launched the first model of Big Bang watches especially for women with the diameter of 38mm, with bazel reinforced with diamonds, but no chronographer.

In April the owner of the Company Carlo Crocco sold it to the French Group LVMH, the world-known leader in manufacture of luxury goods. Hublot Company symbolizes the brand that compliments to the highest possible extent the watch making sphere of  LVMH Group.

Hublot brand is also associated with playing golf, polo, mountain skiing, rallies and tennis through contests and tournaments held by those that support the brand. Prior to the Euro 2008 Championship in Switzerland and Austria, Jean-Claude Biver first among the sponsors introduced the trendy luxury stuff. That was the strategy of the good entrepreneur.
