Founded in Switzerland in 1980, Hublot is defined by its innovation, which began with the highly original combination of gold and rubber. This "Art of Fusion" stems from the imagination of its visionary Chairman, Jean-Claude Biver, and has been driven forward by CEO Ricardo Guadalupe since 2012.
The release of the iconic, multi-award-winning Big Bang in 2005 paved the way for new flagship collections (Classic Fusion, Spirit of Big Bang), with complications ranging from the simple to the highly sophisticated, establishing the extraordinary DNA of the Swiss watchmaking house and ensuring its impressive growth.
Keen to preserve its traditional and cutting-edge expertise, and guided by its philosophy to "Be First, Different and Unique", the Swiss watchmaker is consistently ahead of the curve, through its innovations in materials (scratch-resistant Magic Gold, ceramics in vibrant colours, sapphire), and the creation of Manufacture movements (Unico, Meca 10, Tourbillon).
Hublot is fully committed to creating a Haute Horlogerie brand with a visionary future: a future which is fused with the key events of our times (FIFA World Cup™, UEFA Champions League, UEFA Europa League and Ferrari) and the finest ambassadors our era has to offer (Kylian Mbappé, Usain Bolt, Pelé).

A place of origin is a realm that fulfils the need for identity, security, and individualism in life. In the 19th century, Moritz Grossmann found it in a small town in the Ore Mountains: Glashütte. In his atelier there, the exceptionally gifted pioneer developed technically outstanding watch models.
More than 100 years later, watchmaker Christine Hutter discovered the heritage of Moritz Grossmann in Glashütte and established a new manufacture. Today, this is where ancestral craftsmanship is reinterpreted with modern technology.
The beginning of a new era in the name of Moritz Grossmann: Schönstes deutsches Handwerk.
The history of Anonimo began in 1997 in the city of Florence. The brand was born out of a desire to preserve traditional watchmaking in Italy, at a time when companies in the sector were leaving the country. Founded by watchmaking enthusiasts, Anonimo has made a name for itself in the uncompromising world of professional diving, particularly amongst the famous CNS (Cooperativa Nazionale Sommozzatori), by creating watches that combine robustness, functionality and elegance. In 2003, Dr. Dino Zei, a well-known engineer, joined Anonimo and developed the Nautilo collection. In 2013, the brand moved to Switzerland, the cradle of horology, in order to benefit from a unique, know- how, while maintaining a strong link with its Italian roots.
With their cushioned case, the Anonimo collections are characterised by an atypical construction and dials that recall the Anonimo signature A, symbolised by the position of the markers at 4, 8 and 12 o’clock. The Militare and Nautilo lines feature sporty professional watches while the Epurato collection offers pieces with an urban, elegant and sober character.

For Perrelet, fine watchmaking is a universe of both hand and mind, in which creativity is expressed through rigorous execution, and in which preserving a tradition means continuing and innovating. A universe built on daring inventions, on family talent perpetuated through the ages and expressed in prestigious watchmaking creations.
Christophe Claret’s passion was born in the workshop of a watchmaker restorer who spends over a year disassembling and assembling horological mechanisms in order to clean and service them. Christophe Claret acquired the Soleil d’Or, a magnificent mansion perched on the heights of Le Locle. Within a few years, this magnificent residence was transformed into one of the world’s most cutting-edge watch Manufactures. Uniting all professions involved in the design, development and production of movements as well as other parts of the watch such as cases, the premises have undergone a progressive transformation into a superb contemporary watch production facility.
Christophe Claret watches are an inspired reflection of watchmaking genius expressed through its most powerful manifestation: perpetual emotion. Playful, creative and unconventional, these genuine masterpieces intended for devotees of rare and subtly offbeat products that are nonetheless firmly positioned in the sphere of Haute Horlogerie.
Since 1989, the watchmaker has been seeking to put together a set of ideal conditions for the birth of prodigious, atypical and excellent horological mechanisms. Christophe Claret has never swerved from this highly demanding path towards absolute perfection and culminating in a range of extraordinary watches.

The designers from NOMOS’ in-house creative agency in Berlin create their superb form.

In 1868, the American watchmaker and entrepreneur Florentine Ariosto Jones travelled from Boston to Switzerland and founded the ‘International Watch Company’ in Schaffhausen. His visionary dream was to combine advanced American manufacturing methods with the craftsmanship of Swiss watchmakers to make the best pocket watches of his time. In doing so, he not only laid the foundation for IWC’s unique engineering approach but also established the centralized production of mechanical watches in Switzerland.
Over its 150 year history, IWC Schaffhausen has developed a reputation for creating functional complications, especially chronographs and calendars, which are ingenious, robust, and easy for customers to use. A pioneer in the use of titanium and ceramics, IWC today specializes in highly engineered technical watch cases manufactured from advanced materials, such as titanium aluminide and Ceratanium®. Preferring the principle of “form follows function” over decoration, the Swiss watch manufacturer’s timeless creations embody their owners’ dreams and ambitions as they journey through life.
IWC sources materials responsibly and takes action to minimize its impact on the environment, creating intrinsically sustainable timepieces that are built to last for generations. The company prides itself in training its own future watchmakers and engineers, as well
as offering an excellent working environment for all employees. IWC also partners with organizations that work globally to support children and young people.
The variety of components used for a complicated watch such as designed by Hautlence requires the mastery of a large number of skills and techniques, applied to the movement parts and the components of the dial and case. The brand’s desire for excellence has led it to make use of the best sources for each component.
The Hautlence watch is built around the caliber. The technical elements are exposed, and the technique is perfectly visible. The different levels of display elements give a unique, in-depth view. The lower dial reveals part of the minute circle and winding mechanism, and supports the second flange, which cleverly floats between the connecting rods and the upper sapphire dial. Each qualified watchmaker, chosen for his or her outstanding skills, assembles and adjusts the pieces one by one.
When Robert Greubel and Stephen Forsey teamed up and launched Greubel Forsey in 2004, they shared a common view that there was still room for creativity in the development of complications in watchmaking. Their goal was to improve the performance of existing complications but also to invent innovative mechanisms. Over the years, they have honed their creative approach to fine watchmaking, notably with their Invention Pieces and Art Pieces. Robert Greubel and Stephen Forsey create just under one hundred timepieces each year – which speaks volumes about the quality of their workmanship and attention to detail.
