It could just as easily be turned into a display of technical excellence, featuring complex mechanical movements, as housing the latest technology as a state-of-the-art smartwatch. READ MORE

Hublot is no stranger to donning its watches in camouflage. In 2009 they used these distinct patterns on the Big Bang Commando, and the second collaboration with Italia Independent gave a new and innovative twist to camouflage.
