When Jean-Claude Biver joined Hublot in 2004, it was his mission to bring the brand to a new level, creating a second chapter in its history. Biver decided to do this by going back to Hublot’s roots, represented by its signature case and unusual rubber strap pairing, seeking to coin the renaissance of the art of fusion. Joining him for the endeavor was Ricardo Guadalupe, now Hublot’s CEO, with whom he worked closely together at Blancpain in the 1990s and early years of 2000. To effectively take the Art of Fusion to the next level, Biver also had a vision; and thus, he started to order parts from various suppliers to execute that vision. He did this under his own name, and since none of the suppliers knew it was for Hublot, the grapevine was soon buzzing with rumors that Biver was starting his own brand. When Biver finally revealed the new Hublot at Baselworld 2005, Big Bang forged a whole new meaning.
With the Big Bang, Hublot created a new universe. True to the same concept as the first Hublot 25 years prior, it was a combination of unusual materials presented in a bold way. Very recognizable as a Hublot—yet at the same time refreshingly different—the concept of evolution through revolution materialized. The niche brand was thrust into the spotlight with the Big Bang, awarded the prize for Best Design at the prestigious Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève—and their orders tripled.
With Baselworld 2015 around the corner, ten years had passed since the initial introduction of the Big Bang. The Hublot universe is still expanding, with the opening of an additional manufacture unit this year, opposite the current one. In taking full advantage of the momentum the Big Bang gave to Hublot, Biver and Guadalupe have further focused on two central elements: manufacture and fusion. Before Biver joined Hublot, the brand relied on several sources outside of the company to provide essential parts. In the past decade however, Hublot has focused on bringing much of that knowledge and craftsmanship into its own organization, with the aim of controlling around 80% of the production of their watches. This strategy has empowered the brand to consistently take the art of fusion to the next level, while continuously surprising and enticing clients with their innovative offerings.
In many ways, the ‘Art of Fusion’ is a constant process of innovation: innovation in design, movement, combination of materials or even in the materials themselves. When they introduced the Mag Bang in 2007, this was not only the first Hublot made completely in-house, but that also featured an innovative, lightweight case, crafted from a new alloy consisting mainly of magnesium and aluminum.
Big Bang is a thoroughbred sports watch, the Spirit of Big Bang seems to transcend into the realms of a contemporary dress watch, merging qualities of different types of watches into a single act of fusion
