It’s Time For Some Luxury! The Hublot Smartwatch Is Coming

Big Bang Unico GMT Carbon hublot smartwatch announced luxury smartwatch

The number of wearable watches have exploded in the last couple years, but luxury smartwatches are not well represented in the wearable tech market. According to a Bloomberg report, Swiss luxury watch manufacturer Hublot is planning to release a luxury smartwatch soon. #objectmagic

While there are no released images of the luxury smartwatch – the company’s Big Bang Unico GMT Carbon is the model shown above – we do know it will cost 5,000 Swiss francs. This converts to around $5,200 and will be limited to just 2,018 pieces.

“It’s a unique one-shot. It will be a collector’s watch in 20 years,” said Hublot’s former CEO Jean-Claude Biver. 

The limited run is a tie-in with the 2018 World Cup and the Hublot smartwatch will indeed have a few sports-themed features. It will let you know the World Cup schedule, scores, and results straight from your wrist.

Hublot is owned by LVMH, a multinational luxury good conglomerate who also makes Tag Heuer luxury smartwatches. Given that Tag Heuer smartwatch options run Google Wear OS software and have a modular design, this could help inform some of Hublot’s design decisions when it comes to their smartwatch.

However, speculation won’t last long; the Hublot smartwatch will be unveiled next week at the Baselworld Watch and Jewellery Show.
