In a watch-related game of word association, say the name Hublot and most people’s reaction would be ‘football’ or ‘footballers’. Fair enough – in terms of sponsorship, Hublot has been allied with Manchester since 2008 and was the official timekeeper of both the 2010 and 2014 FIFA World Cups. But it is also because this brand made its name with brass, blingy models that perfectly suited the brash, taste black holes that inhabit the upper echelons of the footballing world.

However, to only think like that would be to ignore other elements of Hublot’s catalogue, like this rather fabulous model.

Hublot Big Bang White Watch

At first glance

You can easily see it’s a Hublot – its rounded dial with boxy outer case is the Big Bang’s signature. You also notice the diamonds, 126 of them, thanks to the double row set on the bezel. This could be too much ice for some, but it is not as ‘look at me’ as some Hublots can be.

Up close and personal

It is the ideal mix of the sporty and the feminine. Often ‘sporty’ tends to mean something along the lines of the Tag Heuer Aquaracer, which brings to mind ladies who lunch idly flitting around a tennis court barely breaking a sweat.

This really does feel like you could work up a sweat in it, though that might make things a little sticky under the rubber strap.

On the wrist

Hublot Big Bang White Watch on the Wrist

Considering Hublot’s reputation for making watches that are the horological equivalent of a rich man’s bodyguard – muscle for the sake of it – this doesn’t feel intimidatingly chunky on the wrist. This is partly down to it being 38mm, which is comfortable for most women, but also thanks to the steel-diamonds-and-white-strap combination, which lightens the watch considerably.

It may be too manly for a more feminine woman and, because of its overt sportiness, this is not really an everyday watch if you work in more corporate environs.

  • If you like diamonds, you’ve got 126 of them
  • It’s a solid ladies watch if you’re looking to buy a Hublot
  • It’s a Hublot and that name does have overtly masculine associations
  • It’s a bit pricey for a quartz
