When Jean-Claude Biver joined Hublot in 2004, it was his mission to bring the brand to a new level, creating a second chapter in its history. Biver decided to do this by going back to Hublot’s roots, represented by its signature case and unusual rubber strap pairing, seeking to coin the renaissance of the art of fusion. Joining him for the endeavor was Ricardo Guadalupe, now Hublot’s CEO, with whom he worked closely together at Blancpain in the 1990s and early years of 2000.
To effectively take the Art of Fusion to the next level, Biver also had a vision; and thus, he started to order parts from various suppliers to execute that vision. He did this under his own name, and since none of the suppliers knew it was for Hublot, the grapevine was soon buzzing with rumors that Biver was starting his own brand. When Biver finally revealed the new Hublot at Baselworld 2005, Big Bang forged a whole new meaning.
