Carlo Crocco – The Entrepreneur
Carlo Crocco is the creator of the Hublot watches’ timeless design. He grew up in a family of watchmakers and developed a strong desire to set out on his own and create luxury timepieces that were elegant and wearable in many situations.

The Hublot watches have become a popular accessory to buy globally, due to their brilliant beauty and adaptability.
What Is So Unique About Carlo Crocco's design?
1. Watchband – The Hublot watchbands are made out of a tempered rubber that is virtually indestructible. Rubber was an ideal choice for Crocco because he wanted a band that would be shiny and that would complement or contrast the striking dials in his watch designs. The band is weightless, making it an ideal watchband for sports and other activities. In addition, the band conforms to the shape of the wearer's wrist, making it an extremely comfortable watch to wear. The Hublot band is resistant to chemical deterioration, unlike other conventionally made watchbands made out of leather or metal.
2. Vision– Hublot watches flawlessly merge Swiss craftsmanship with Italian styling. Crocco's luxury timepieces are as close to excellence in terms of style and functionality as anyone can get.
3. Adaptability – When making the Hublot watches, Crocco focused on a nautical theme for collectors to buy. Crocco wanted to make a watch that could be worn on all occasions. That is what makes the Hublot's design so distinctive. Hublot watches can be worn to the opera or a luxurious state dinner. In addition, the watches can be worn for sports events, such as golfing or deep-sea diving. The watches are water-resistant to a depth of 165 feet. The professional diver watches are water-resistant for up to 1,000 feet. These luxury timepieces were made to take a beating.
4. Style – For those who love precious stones, many of the Hublot watches include beautiful gemstones and diamonds that add exquisite beauty and style.
