Masterpieces by Hublot
The Italian Carlo Crocco founded the company MDM Genève in 1980 in Nyon, a small village in Switzerland. He already revolutionized the watchmaking world with the first luxury timepieces he launched: For the first time in history Crocco used caoutchouc and created exquisite watches that attract the eye with a perfect combination of gold and natural rubber. The name "Hublot" (French for "porthole") was given to the watches by MDM Genève since they optically reminded of a porthole with their large, round dial. In May 2014, Interbrand and the Swiss business magazine BILANZ ranked Hublot among the most valuable brands form Switzerland.
