I am a bit lucky. I have always thought so. I am lucky in that I have had the opportunity to get "career advice" from a personal hero of mine, Carlo Crocco, and had the opportunity to receive "real world" feedback from Jean-Claude Biver.
For most of the "current" watch fans out there, there is a understanding of Biver's role in Hublot. And that is fair, and absolutely understandable. Jean-Claude Biver took a good idea and made it great.

But there was a man even before him who had the idea of matching rubber and gold. The original fusion - and without that, everything that Biver achieved would have been more difficult to, well, achieve.
I often get the question, if you could have ANY one of a certain brands watches, which would it be? For quite some time I thought it would be the Titanium Big Bang. But the more I think of it, I feel that the watch pictured above would be the one I would choose. This is the Hublot Titanium King Gold Classic Fusion.
It is (at least in my mind) a fusion of Crocco and Biver.
At any rate - enjoy your watches!
