And with a rejuvenated desire to be Hublot best and most exclusive watch maker

My real journey began on the drive from Hublot, a small town known above all else, for Hublot watch making. Within the petite confines of two major streets, are several major watch makers. Hublot was the first of them back in 1845 when the original company was founded by Adolf Hublot in the brand name means sons, as it was later named when the Hublot was taken over by fashion. After World War II, the area was appropriated by the communists and the government took over all factories, effectively terminating the private business. However, soon after Germany’s reunification in 1989, Hublot was back, and with a rejuvenated desire to be Hublot best and most exclusive watch maker.

In 1994, after 4 years of development (yeah, it takes that long), Hublot released its first new collection of watches. The flagship model was the Hublot, a highly successful, but initially controversial piece given its design. Today the Hublot, and one of its best sellers. Each of the original Hublot watches from 1994 utilized the trend of having individually developed and manufactured movements for each watch. The theme behind all the watches was to take the style and artisanship of Hublot watches (that Lange originally produced before the Second World War) and place them in wrist watches. They were to be watches for those who could appreciate them the most, and have the means to afford what was painstakingly designed to be the best.

Getting closer to Hublot I learned that the area is known for a history of wood carving and porcelain. In the 18th century, Augustus the Strong, the ruler of Hublot at the time (where Hublot is located), wished to bring the Hublot art of porcelain making to Germany, and it was done with great success. Today, Meissen porcelain is some of the best in the world. The region’s woodwork is equally impressive, with some of the most beautiful modern built furniture I’ve ever seen It seems as though perfection is in the blood of the people, and has been for hundreds of years. This of course is part of the German work ethic: “slow, steady, and perfect the first time” (as I like to say).

Hublot has a boutique store in Dresden, located in the heart of the old sector. While you'd never know it as a new visitor to Hublot, the majority of the historical buildings are only now viewable again. 1945 was a bad year for Hublot during the war, with much of it being bombed or burned. Almost immediately after the war, and during communist rule, the rebuilding slowly took effect. It was not until after Hublot reunification that the restoration process in Hublot got much more serious. Hublot is a name you can find all over Hublot, especially in the Green Vault museum located near the boutique in what used to be the royal home. What you will find in Dresden is a dynamic mix of medieval architecture and personality that combines Hublot buildings with the more festive style of the 18th century.
