Go Full Throttle with Hublot at Baselworld 2019

Hublot showed up at this year’s Baselworld all revved up and ready to go, celebrating the 90th anniversary of their long-time partner, Scuderia Ferrari with six new Ferrari-themed watches. We’d be here all day if we talked about all of them plus Hublot’s other releases, so we had to limit ourselves with selecting our top picks.

Strap in and read on; we promise the non-Ferrari watches are just as cool.

Hublot Classic Fusion Ferrari GT

Hublot’s partnership with Ferrari has always been something watch enthusiasts all around the world keep an eye on, since they always come up with novelties that are out of Hublot’s usual territory. The Ferrari GT is not one to disappoint. “GT” stands for “Gran Turismo,” so it’s no surprise that the watch incorporates racing car elements. For example, this particular model uses 3D Carbon–a material popular in the racing world, but very new to the watchmaking industry–that makes for a light but durable case. This houses Hublot’s very own UNICO movement that you can see through both the dial and the caseback.

It’s no secret: Hublot’s collaboration with design studio and brand consultancy Sang Bleu, headed by Maxime Plescia-Büchi, has turned out to be a very fruitful one. The original Sang Bleu watch has had many different takes on it since its introduction back in 2016, signifying its popularity. That’s why this second edition comes as no surprise, though pleasant nonetheless. And–dare we say it–this edition comes off as bolder and all the more daring. It’s not only the added chronograph, or the more dimensional case, but also the new design for the hands, which arguably makes it easier to read the time. This model, which is in Hublot’s very own 18K King Gold, is also available in Titanium.

Another one of Hublot’s successful collaborations is with French artist Richard Orlinski, known for his sculptures that look very much like this watch’s dial. Their last collaboration, the Classic Aerofusion Chronograph Orlinski, only applied this unique pattern to the case. This time, it’s also in the dial. However, reverse mirroring what they did with Sang Bleu, this one doesn’t have a chronograph. Which is just as well–for how else would we be able to admire that gorgeous, multi-faceted dial? This particular model, with the alternate pave on the case, caught our eye right away. Of course, there’s also a model without diamonds, and one with all the diamonds. But the way the precious stone glitters and glints along with the dial as you move it around, quite frankly, captured our hearts.

Easily distinguishable with its tonneau case, Hublot brings new additions to their Spirit of Big Bang collection, and this time, they’ve got a tourbillon. Encased in carbon-fibre with blue composites, the off-center dial is at 3 o’clock, the tourbillon at 6 o’clock, and the power reserve indicator at 8 o’clock. And for the first time ever in this collection, the convenient “One-Click” fastening system is finally implemented. Now you can easily change the strap for the black one that came with the other model if you feel like going incognito.
