The Watch

Here we have a 2000s Hublot Elegant MDM Automatic Grey Dial 1910.1 with its distinctive Carlo Crocco-designed 41mm stainless steel case that curves over your wrist with finely tapered screwed lugs and a lug-to-lug length of 50mm and a case thickness of 11mm ensures a comfortable fit. On the right side is a signed crown, and the sculpted ring under the smooth bezel has a prominent shape, so Hublot, in design, is a flat sapphire crystal that sits above a grey-textured dial. An outer minute track surrounds baton indexes coated in lume with the Hublot motif at 12 o’clock and an Arabic Six at 6 o’clock, and at 3 o’clock, a date window, elegant Hublot hands filled with lume are complemented by a tapered sweeping second hand, at 6 o’clock “MDM Geneve”, "MDM" stands for "Marie-Daniel Montre" Crocco's wife. On the reverse, a screwed-down case back with Hublot MDM Geneve engraved into it, inside an automatic ETA Cal. 2892-A2, 21 jewels, beating at 28,800 beats per hour. The watch comes paired with its  20mm Hublot black rubber strap, is attached by a broad stainless steel plate with screws, spring bars and a signed butterfly clasp and comes with its Hublot case.


Personal Note

For some, the words "Hublot" and "Underrated" in the same sentence will be hard to process and may even trigger a highly opinionated response! But I do think Hublot gets more hate than it deserves, some models aren't so great, sure... But some, like this early MDM Automatic, are truly fantastic and offer a ton of watch for the money and a great design on the wrist. I'd suggest booking an appointment and trying it on for yourself before disregarding it completely!


The Brand

Hublot's history begins with its creator – Carlo Crocco, an Italian who was inspired by his family of watchmakers. He designed his first watch in 1967, and in 1980, he set up the Hublot company. In late 2003, Swatch Group's Omega division president Jean-Claude Biver had a meeting with Carlo Crocco, and in May 2004, Biver became CEO, sat on the board and became a minority shareholder in Hublot Watches. Immediately, Biver created a new flagship collection that was shown in BaselWorld in April 2005, Hublot's "Big Bang" chronograph—becoming an immediate hit. A few months later, in November 2005, the Big Bang chronograph was awarded internationally, receiving the following awards: "2005 Design Prize" in the "Geneva Watchmaking Grand Prix", "Watch of the Year" in Bahrain and "Watch of the Year" in Japan, and the Middle Eastern Prize for the "Best Oversized Watch" at the Editor’s Choice. Through the innovation and genius of Biver in 2004, the brand's sales went from 24 million Swiss francs to close to a staggering 100 million Swiss francs in 2006. Hublot opened its first boutique in Paris, in the Rue Saint-Honoré in February 2007. In April 2008, it was announced that the LVMH group had purchased Hublot from founder Carlo Crocco for an undisclosed fee. As of 2019, Hublot had 169 Boutiques.
