Give your Hublot a very personal makeover with a new strap.

Because change can be refreshing, Hublot offers watch owners the option of changing to a new or different strap, giving the watch a totally different character that can be entirely adapted to the wearer’s lifestyle. Whether it’s the staple black natural rubber strap with a different texture or something more elaborate like an alligator leather strap in a vibrant color, the number of watch and strap combinations is truly endless.

With Hublot’s unique “sandwich” case construction, straps are held in place by two “H” screws on each of the two end-pieces of the watch’s case. To switch to a different strap requires specialized tools and careful manipulating, as the screws and threads are sloped at an angle. Hublot recommends a visit to the nearest Hublot boutique or authorized retailer to have a strap changed professionally without the risk of damaging the case and scratching the screws.

The next generation strap-change interface

Demonstrating Hublot’s ability to think out of the box and provide innovative solutions to enhance the wearer’s ownership experience, Hublot’s quick strap changing mechanism is nothing short of revolutionary.

Originally debuted on the Oceanographic 4000, where the wearer would need to switch from the rubber strap to a fabric strap for diving, Hublot’s quick strap change mechanism has become something of a breakthrough element for the brand and has since made its way to other core collections such as the Big Bang Ferrari and Big Bang Unico.

Integrated into the case design and construction, the strap-change mechanism features a button on each of the two end pieces on the case, where a firm push allows the wearer to pull out the strap and snap in a different one. The entire process does not require any additional tools and can be completed in a matter of seconds.
