Hublot Supports AIDES Foundation

        Rooted in the 1980s, when it was created by the charismatic Carlo Crocco, Hublot is a relatively young manufacturer in the luxury watch-making industry; headquartered in Nyon Switzerland, this watchmaker always focused on preserving its daring personality and creative freedom, and always tried to introduce innovative new complications and limited editions which targeted a large audience.

        Hublot is a brand that will remain in the history of today’s Haute Horology as the first one that intertwined the classy elegance of gold with the sporty youthful air of natural rubber- an inconceivable combination, till then which individualized Hublot and placed it among the most renowned watchmakers of the world. And up to this day, for Hublot, rubber crosses beyond the boundaries of a simple fashion phenomenon; the use of this material became rather the embodiment of the brand’s philosophy, as well as its iconic signature.
