Big Bang

In the 1990’s watch designer Jean Claude Biver was at Blancpain fighting to keep the brand from incorporating quartz watches into their line, this difference of opinions prompted him to find Hublot, who at the time was gaining recognition as a premium watch brand but wasn’t quite making the impact they hoped for. Biver came to Hublot with a radical concept, using materials not normally associated with luxury watches such as rubber and ceramics to create a watch he said could lead to “a big bang”. Taking its name from this idea the Big Bang certainly has left a lasting impression on the market.
