HUBLOT – AT THE CUTTING EDGE OF IDEAS
THINKING OUTSIDE OF THE BOX
17th November 2017
Hublot is a champion of ground breaking innovation with a determination to change the world of horologie. This might seem like a bold claim, however, the respected brand has earned a reputation for doing exactly that. Its unique ability to create timepieces which combine tradition and reputation has firmly secured Hublot’s place in the history books.
At the cutting edge of new ideas Hublot has a strong personality – the Art of Fusion. More than just a slogan, it is an attitude and ideology that encompasses the very core of Hublot’s design ethos. Speaking of the brand’s creative flare CEO Ricardo Guadalupe said: “Hublot’s strength resides in its very clear identity – the art of fusion – this unique ability to create timepieces which combine tradition and innovation.”
And the beauty of the concept is that is all starts with a simple idea. Hublot appreciates that creativity can come about in the most curious of ways and it is this appreciation for thinking outside of the box that ensures the brand continues to look to the future. Here we shine a spotlight on why Hublot should always be your go-to for a timepiece that will stand out from the crowd.

Think time traveller and one man more than likely springs to mind – Dr Who. However, you don’t need to don a long stripped scarf or hop in a Tardis to get from A to B, and you certainly don’t need to make your way across galaxies to lay claim to a GMT timepiece. In fact, for any modern man who finds himself jetting off on holiday with his family and friends or off on a business trip a GMT model is the perfect accessory.
