CRAFTSMANSHIP

INNOVATIVE MATERIALS

WE BRING OUR DREAMS TO LIFE BY CREATING NEW MATERIALS. AT THE FOREFRONT OF INNOVATION. AT THE FOREFRONT OF CREATION.

From the first use of rubber in watchmaking, to creating new precious alloys, such as scratch-proof Magic Gold, and producing revolutionary composites like ceramic and sapphire with unique colors, materials are always at heart of the Hublot universe. To achieve its “Art of Fusion,” the Manufacture has its own Metallurgy and Materials laboratory, working in close collaboration with the Research and Development department, as well as its own foundry. These innovative materials are created and manufactured using the latest technologies, unique in watchmaking and developed by Hublot.

GOLD REINVENTED
Scratch-proof gold had never existed before, so Hublot invented it. Developed and patented by the Manufacture, Magic Gold is the first and only 18K gold alloy in the world that perfectly withstands scratches, even with an extremely active lifestyle. It maintains its beauty, shine and polished appearance over time. A true revolution in the world of precious materials.

AN AVANT-GARDE MATERIAL
For Hublot, materials are an integral part of their watches’ design. They must complement their design, while protecting their mechanism and withstand the test of time. As such, the Manufacture has chosen to use high-tech ceramic for certain bezels and cases; it is an ultra-tough and almost entirely scratch-proof material (apart from the diamond) with a base of zirconium sintered at very high temperatures.

COMPLETELY TRANSPARENT
In search of the perfect fusion between movement and case, Hublot engineers and chemists have researched and developed a transparent material which reveals the heart of the watch, all while being robust enough to effectively protect the mechanism. That’s how the Manufacture has become the expert of synthetic sapphire, a material from which it derives its esthetic qualities that are unique within watchmaking – transforming each watch into a work of art.

IN HUBLOT’S DNA
In 1980, Hublot revolutionized watchmaking by combining an 18K gold case with a rubber strap, creating for the first time a new type of watch. This daring alliance established the first expression of the “Art of Fusion” which has become the Manufacture’s sign of recognition. Since then, rubber has emerged as one of Hublot’s flagship materials and an emblem of its modern approach to watchmaking.
