Everyone loves a classic watch—the usual monochromatic dial colors in either stainless steel, leather strap, or gold bracelets—that is as versatile as it is elegant. But, let’s be honest. Sometimes we also want to play things around and go beyond the ordinary.
As the summer season rolls in, it is fun to look for ways to make our outfits vivid and bright, and we cannot think of any better way than wearing a bold, colorful watch.
The great news is that if you are in the market for a luxury watch, you should check out the latest waves of summer launches that your favorite brands have lined up. Of course, Hublot headlines the list with its colorful version of the Hublot Classic Fusion. Continue reading as we list some of our favorite candy-colored watches to complete your summer get-up. These five colorful watches will be perfect to wear this summer!
1. Hublot Classic Fusion Takashi Murakami Sapphire Rainbow
Hublot is the first-ever brand to use gold and rubber together in a watch, thus earning its name, master of the Art of Fusion. But, it’s not only an unlikely pairing of materials for which Hublot is known but also its boldness in using bright colors in its watches—in the case of this Hublot Classic Fusion, all the colors of the rainbow.
For the second time, Hublot teamed up with Japanese artist Takashi Murakami to release the Classic Fusion Takashi Murakami Sapphire Rainbow. The watch bears Murakami’s iconic theme, the smiling flower, and as they would say, it is a whirlwind of transparency and color.
2. Hublot Classic Fusion Aerofusion Chronograph Ceramic Capri Boutique
In 2021, Hublot took a different approach to summer by opening a series of seven new boutiques in the Mediterranean. These include the Hublot Capri Boutique in Italy, where you can find the boutique-exclusive Classic Fusion Chronograph. It has a 45mm black and blue ceramic case, a matching blue-lined rubber, and a black steel buckle. It is powered by the in-house HUB1155 self-winding chronograph that boasts a 42-hour power reserve.
3. Hublot Big Bang Unico Summer Purple
Color blocking is a recurring trend in prestigious fashion weeks and one that Hublot executed gracefully so. For 2022, the classic Big Bang Unico has gotten a summer treat with its all-purple look that says bold, bright colors are back this season!
This 42mm summer-ready reference uses a modern, lightweight aluminum case and bezel, while the case-back is made from lightweight titanium. It has undergone a process that guarantees durability and protection against scratches and other damage. Two straps are available for the model, a velcro strap with a matching secure sports clap and the signature natural rubber strap. At its heart is the in-house manufactured HUB1280 chronograph movement, and its column wheel is visible through the dial. It boasts a power reserve of 72 hours.
4. Hublot Big Bang Unico Full Baguette King Gold Rainbow
Hublot first introduced the Big Bang flagship in 2005, and it was an immediate hit. It catapulted the brand to great heights and, over the years, has become one of the most coveted watches alongside the likes of Rolex, Audemars Piguet, and Omega.
One of the recent releases under this prestigious line is the high-jewelry Big Bang Unico, a dazzling display of rainbow-colored gemstones set on an 18K pink gold case. If anything, this reference illustrates the brand’s reputation for quality craftsmanship, use of high-end finishing, and other modern aesthetics.
5. Hublot Big Bang Tourbillon Automatic Orange Sapphire
Over the years, Hublot has mastered the machining of sapphire to create watchcases in exclusive shades. The Big Bang Tourbillon Automatic Orange Sapphire is another world-first, adding an entirely new color to its palette of see-through tinted sapphire cases.
A technical and aesthetic feat, the orange reference features a new self-winding tourbillon movement with its micro-rotor visible on the dial side. It is manufactured in-house and guarantees a minimum 72-hour power reserve. The new Tourbillon watch is limited to 50 pieces; as Hublot would put it, it is the Art of Fusion in all its glory.
The past few years have proven to be a transformative time for the watchmaking industry. Trends are constantly shifting with new horological advances being developed almost every day. When you think you have seen it all, Hublot constantly surprises us with new materials and manufacturing techniques, expanding its offerings to unforeseen proportions.
These summer-ready watches are but a mere example of Hublot’s innovative expertise, reinterpreting its classic models using extraordinary materials to offer something entirely new.
