Hublot is a luxury watch manufacturing company founded by Carlo Crocco in 1976. Previously, Carlo Crocco had been part of the Italian Binda Group dynasty before leaving to try his hand at the watch industry. The result was MDM Geneve, with which it launched its first watch in 1980. The dial, which looked like a porthole, was what inspired the name “Hublot”.
Buyers were drawn to Hublot’s innovative strap and modern design, making it an almost instant hit. Hublot had set a new standard by incorporating the first natural rubber straps into a watch in history. Three years later, people recognized the superiority of the strap due to its ability to remain flexible and soft even after exposure to the elements and prolonged use. Since then, virtually all watch brands use rubber straps.
Today, Hublot belongs to the French luxury goods corporation LVMH and is one of the most sought after watches in the world. In fact, it’s so valuable that Formula One CEO (Bernie Ecclestone) was once mugged for his Hublot watch. Some of its most notable sponsors included Diego Maradona, Usain Bolt, the entire Manchester United soccer team, and the remaining members of the team had to come up with a method to authenticate their watches.
It is known as Wisekey and began operating in August 2009. Most Hublot watches tend to be expensive, but these are the 10 most expensive Hublot watches of all time.
