Hublot made its name 30 years ago when it became the first Swiss watch luxury brand to fuse precious metals with rubber, sparking a revolution in material innovation. In 2004, Jean-Claude Biver, CEO of Hublot and one of the few men to have genuinely left their mark on Swiss watchmaking, gave the brand a great new boost and revolutionized watchmaking with the creation of the multiple award-winning “Big Bang” chronograph. It marked the start of a spectacular success and impressive growth for the brand. Since then, with a new high-tech manufacture on Lake Geneva, Hublot continues to write the story of the Art of Fusion with the combination of innovative materials – magnesium, ceramic, carbon, tantalum, tungsten, titanium – with more traditional materials such as gold, steel and diamonds. Hublot remains true to Swiss watchmaking tradition, enriching it with the visionary creativity of the 21st Century.
As a tribute to its partnership with Manchester United, a Hublot clock tower welcomes visitors and supporters at the main entrance at Old Trafford Stadium.
The Swiss luxury watch brand has also developed three limited editions equipped with a 45-minute chronograph movement especially developed for counting down each half of a football game, and featuring Manchester United’s Red Devils emblem on the dial: the Red Devil Bang I in black ceramic launched in 2008, followed by the Red Devil Bang II in 2009, and in 2011 the King Power Red Devil. This last special edition exists in two versions: 500 numbered pieces for the black ceramic version and 250 pieces for the King Gold version. Perfect
