  • Catalogue Essay

    'The Big Bang Cappucino Drive is limited to 30 pieces only and when introduced, it was a brand new colour in watchmaking. This colour allows the wearer to enjoy with casual wear at the weekend or a nice Havana suit. Featuring the inverted chronograph for easy operation with the thumb of the right hand, the operation of the chronograph is also inverted starting the chronograph on the bottom and resetting at the top. Initially, the concept of this brand new colour we thought Frappacino could describe the watch and its striking new look but for obvious reasons we picked Cappucino.'

  • Artist Biography


    Swiss • 1980

    Hublot was founded by Carlo Crocco in 1980 and named after the French word for "porthole," which resembles their iconic bezel design. Hublot's first watch followed three years of research and was the first wristwatch to be fitted with a natural rubber strap. The brand's most recognizable watch today is the 'Big Bang', which was first launched in 2005 upon the arrival of CEO and shareholder Jean-Claude Biver. Other noteworthy models are the 'Classic Fusion' and 'King Power'.
