Hublot's Big Bang Ladies watch is its most expensive timepiece at $5 Million

Louis Vuitton’s Hublot brand of watches has been in the news for several of masterpiece watches including the Big Bang Diamond men’s watch, known for its opulent diamond studded make. Their latest horological creative, the $5 million Big Bang Ladies watch, comes with a similar dressing of diamonds, and their market is known to rather niche; single ladies only! If one recalls what the Big Bang men’s watch was like, it would be easy to decipher the relation it has with the styling quotient of this exclusive diamond bathed timepiece.

According to researches by the company, the niche market of ultra-luxury ladies watches has grown in volume over the years, and is expected to grow approximately by 30% from 2010 to 2012. Explaining it further from another angle, is the CEO of Hublot Jean Claude Biver when he mentions,
Women are buying more than men, women are buying more often than men and women are very influential over men, so you have three good reasons to work on this population.”
It was also observed that the consumer group is rather varied in its choices; they pick up $1 million bejeweled timepieces with as much interest as the $39,000 tutti-frutti multi-colored lesser glamorous version (seen top left) from the watch maker. This would mean that Hublot will always have a chance to garner interest amongst well-moneyed female consumers, and wouldn’t have issues capitalizing on the market they have captured rather well.

Hublot Official World Cup Watch

Football fans look forward to the forthcoming World Cup that will take place in South African Republic on June 11-25. The watchmaking company Hublot also waits impatiently for this event – and that is not surprising: the brand acts as the official timekeeper of the championship.

The status of the official timekeeper obliges Hublot to produce an exclusive limited edition timepiece in honour of the World cup. The Official World Cup Watch has become the first model to celebrate the beginning of the partnership between the watchmaker and the FIFA. The golden case of the watch symbolizes the golden FIFA World Cup – the main prize of the event. The image of the cup also decorated the dial and the back case of the new Hublot timepiece.

The new watch features recognizable Hublot case with 8 screws, strap fasteners, skeleton hands and hour markers. This time the company created a really classical golden watch for all times whose value will only rise with the course of time. The new watch successfully reflects the spirit of such a significant sport event as FIFA World Cup, providing harmonious combination of luxury and sport.
The new Hublot Official World Cup watch is powered by the HUB1112 self-winding movement boasting perfect finishing and decoration. The movement features satinized beveled polished bridges with black PVD-coated titanium screws, the rotor made of tungsten carbide and sand-blasted rhodized main plate. The calibre with 21 jewels provides power reserve for 42 hours and beats at a frequency of 28,800 bph. It animates the functions of hours, minutes and seconds as well as date.
The new Hublot watch is housed by a Classic Fusion 18К rose gold case measuring 45.5mm in diameter. The dial is protected with sapphire crystal with inner anti-reflection treatment. The back case shows the engraving of the FIFA World Cup Trophy while the crown is decorated with the logo of Hublot. The watch is 50 metres water resistant. It is accompanied with an alligator leather strap fitted with an 18K rose gold clasp coated with black PVD treatment. The watch is produced in a limited edition of 100 copies.

Battered Ecclestone appears in ad for Hublot watches

Bizarre ad alert: Hublot watches is currently running a print ad featuring a photograph of a bruised and battered Bernie Ecclestone. The Formula 1 supremo received the injuries in a mugging where his own £200K Hublot was stolen, and the brand is a major F1 sponsor.

Ecclestone apparently sent the image to Hublot himself, and suggested they use it in their advertising. The image appears on the ad above copy that states, 'See what people will do for a Hublot' and is then signed 'Bernie'. It makes for a striking image, despite being seemingly shoehorned into the top of what otherwise seems like any other expensive watch ad. And presumably it is intended to emphasise the value of the watches - but call us weird, wouldn't the thought of being beaten up for the watch you wear put you off buying one?

Brand Information:replica Hublot watches
With a break from conformity, the Hublot brand was born. Carlo Crocco, the Milanese watch afficionado, created a spare, clean and definitive brand. The Hublot porthole-based watch line is instantly recognizable. The twelve screws around the bezel not only act as hour markers, but also accentuate the naval theme. The unique case designs were fused with unique straps. Instead of traditional metals or leather, Hublot turned heads by connecting rubber straps to their precious-metal watch cases. The rubber is not only unique, it is also flexible, corrosion, abrasion and sweat resistant, and of course waterproof. This avante garde decision in the 1980s is now a staple among other Swiss Brands. With the arrival of Jean-Claude Biver of Blancpain to the halls of Hublot, and the Introduction of the fusion-based Big Bang line, the brand's stature has been amplified. The Big Bang, with its high tech 21st century conglomeration of materials, won Wristwatch of the year in 2005.

Hublot's Limited Edition FIFA World Cup Special Watches

Hublot watches
I have discovered the Hublot watches and the Hublot company and brand. Quite an interesting story. And a very good example of an emotional brand linked and strongly represented by its very charismatic CEO, Jean-Claude Biver. Hublot is bringing high-rage watches internationally (top-range watches are defined in Switzerland by their price, i.e above 8’000 to 9’000 CHF).

Jean-Claude Biver is one of those rare men who have genuinely left their mark on Swiss watchmaking. He is born in Luxembourg on 20 September 1949, and his family moved to Switzerland when he was 10 and he became a pupil at a school in Saint-Prex. He continued his education at the Collège de Morges, then at Lausanne University. He arrived in Le Brassus with his degree fresh in his pocket.

The birthplace of fine watchmaking, the Joux Valley was to have a profound effect on his life. He fitted in very quickly, living near a farm which, years later, would become the headquarters of Blancpain. He married in the valley in 1979.

Jean-Claude Biver worked hard to hone his skills from 1975 when he joined Audemars Piguet. He moved on to Omega, in Bienne, where he remained until 1981 and that year, with his friend Jacques Piguet, he bought the dormant Blancpain brand. [...]

Ten years after its creation, the company was flourishing. Despite this, the two partners decided to sell, to protect the company and enable it to develop in a balanced manner. Nicolas Hayek and the Swatch Group bought Blancpain in 1992, but Jean-Claude Biver remained as Managing Director and joined the board of Swatch until end of 2003.

Jean-Claude Biver is undoubtedly enjoying is new challenge as a CEO of Hublot watches with a seat on the Board.

Hublot has launched the new and very innovative “Big-Bang” collection in 2005. These watches are 44.5mm diameter watches, always with a so-called “fusion approach”, that means that there are very different types of materials used, as for example ceramic, titanium, kevlar and rubber. Actually, the brand Hublot was the first watches brand which has used rubber for making the straps (in this high-end range of the watches segments). Huge immediate market success. And what for a success:

Revenues 2004: 26 mio CHF

Revenues 2006: 96 mio CHF (and about 116 mio CHF of orders which had to be delayed)

Revenues 2007 (forecast after Baselworld): 270 mio CHF

Hublot is manufacturing about 17’000 pieces per year. It is generally speaking difficult to find an Hublot watch. The jeweler’s shops have normally just some pieces in stock (4 to 8). If you are ordering a watch, you will have to wait about 8 months before receiving it, perhaps now longer after the BaselWorld event ;-)

The website of Hublot is also quite interesting (see below). It consists on a Big Bang watch in the background, which is giving the hour and the date. This website is receiving about 9’000 unique visitors per day (i.e. 270’000 visitors / month or more than 3 million visitors per year). The main communication media used is the video. You can find a lot of short videos (with a majority of them with Jean-Claude Biver ;-), plus a so-called “Hublot TV”.

Another innovative marketing process was launched by Hublot with their sponsorship partnership with the UEFA Euro 2008 event, which will take place in Switzerland and Austria! It is the first time that a luxury watch brand is supporting a sport as football (our European soccer). Hublot is also, more traditionally in this industry, sponsoring sailing activities (America’s Cup and Luna Rossa, PalmaVela).
