  1. Hublot is at its best when it does big, strong-looking timepieces – and I don’t just mean the Big Bang. Wise move for them to leave golf and tennis to Audemars Piguet and focus on the brawnier stuff, which is what their brand is known for anyways by this point. And who wouldn’t want a George Foreman-inspired Hublot model?
