The Story of the Hublot Ferrari Watch and a Profile of Jean-Claude Biver


With the two exclusive feature stories in this compilation, WatchTime shines its Spotlight on the world of Hublot watches. The first story, by watch historian Gisbert L. Brunner, explores the special partnership between two luxury power brands: Ferrari automobiles and Hublot timepieces.

The second story in this free download is about the former chairman of Hublot, and current head of all LVMH watch brands, Jean-Claude Biver. The past few decades have seen Biver, regarded as a watch-world visionary, rescue the Hublot watch brand from impending obscurity while lifting the brand’s sports sponsorship to new levels and, some say, altering the entire watch industry as a result.
