  • Catalogue Essay

    With a focus on the art of fusion in timepieces, Hublot has certainly become a household name in the watch collecting world. The Big Bang family is with no doubt the most iconic model in the lineage of the firm. With its distinctive angular case inspired by a ship’s porthole, the design originated from the revered late Gerald Genta. Differing itself from the rest such as the likes of the Nautilus and Royal oak, Hublot was the first to incorporate a rubber strap instead of the usual integrated bracelet.

    The present Hublot Big Bang King cased in a 44mm diameter pink gold case with a rotating bezel is made for the leisurely diver with a depth rating of 300 meters. Preserved in excellent overall condition and offered with no reserve, the present example is a great timepiece for the weekend at the beach.

  • Artist Biography

    Hublot

    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'.
