Hublot Loyal to the Zermatt Unplugged
In 2018, Hublot was once again the main sponsor of the music festical which was held from 10th to 14th April in the famous Swiss ski resort. The five-day festival saw over 80 acoustic concerts take place on 14 stages.
Zermatt Unplugged partnership with Hublot provides a unique platform to celebrate its already very close relationship with music. In 2018, the Swiss festival was being held from 10th to 14th April and combined a wide range of musical genres with the congenial atmosphere of the village nestled in the heart of the Pennine Alps. Theses festivals in previous years have always placed great importance on offering an exclusive line-up including promising newcomer acts, and this season is no different.

Zermatt Unplugged 2018
Zermatt Unplugged has long enjoyed a reputation as the 'festival of phenomenal voices', coming into their own during the "unplugged" shows created especially for the festival.

In addition to the scores of established artists, there are also a number of newcomer acts to lend Zermatt Unplugged its distinctive flair. Performing on 14 stages in and around Zermatt, these acts will ensure that the spirit of the festival can be felt throughout Zermatt and on the nearby ski slopes.

Big Bang Alps
The first model in the Big Bang collection by Hublot was released over ten years ago now. Since its launch, this model has become a symbol of just how multifaceted Swiss watchmaking is. This iconic and instantly recognisable design by Hublot has been used as the basis for ongoing development and enhancement ever since, in terms of both engineering and design, becoming the prestige model of the Swiss luxury watch manufacture. The Big Bang Alps pays homage to the most emblematic mountain in the Swiss Alps – the Matterhorn. In this collection, the manufacture's engineers and watchmakers decided to work with an innovative new kind of coated carbon. This fusion of fine materials acts like granite. This rock can be found all over the Alpsand seen from the manufacture in Nyon it provided the inspiration for the Big Bang Alps. The Matterhorn is the jewel in the crown of Switzerland's mountains and its unmistakable shape is recognised around the world.

The Big Bang collection includes a gents' model measuring 45 mm in diameter and a ladies' version measuring 39 mm across. Both models feature the "One Click" system which enables the strap to be changed quickly and easily depending on the wearer's mood and what they are doing. The eye-catching "Cuddly Cuff" can turn any winter outfit into something extra special: this trendy oversized cuff – made of warm and fashionable sheepskin – can be attached to the "One Click" strap with ease.
From the outset, Hublot has embodied design and innovation that differ markedly from the established watchmaking order. With the impetus provided by Jean-Claude Biver, by 2004 these values had already become the basis of a new DNA, leading the brand to develop particularly audacious timepieces – most of them with a highly-developed sporting aspect.Find out more >
