Elizabeth Doerr’s entire world seems to have been following the Australian Open 2022 tennis saga over the last couple of weeks – even people who generally do not follow tennis. So as the first Grand Slam of the tennis calendar 2022 gets underway, she briefly examines Novak Djokovic and his pretty scandalous behavior as he relates to our watch world.
Ferrari had already teamed up with quite a few different watch brands to feature the Prancing Horse logo on the wrist: Cartier, Girard-Perregaux, and Panerai are forces to be reckoned with, yet it was Hublot who enjoyed the greatest success in partnering with the famed car brand from Maranello. And Martin Green thinks that this might be the most successful car/watch partnership that the industry has seen so far. What do you think?
The Hublot Big Bang Integral Tourbillon Rainbow might look a bit whimsical at first, but it delivers joy in a very high-end way.

So embrace your guilty pleasure and find your pot of gold!

Salmon-colored dials are still niche market and Martin Green doesn’t expect them to go mainstream anytime soon. Nonetheless, pink has become something of a buzz topic, and here he shares a few of his favorite watches with pink, pinkish, or salmon-colored dials.
While LVMH Watch Week 2021 did not take place in physical form, it was not any less spectacular. Hublot is one of the brands whose new watches Martin Green always looks most forward to: they never disappoint and they always dazzle. And, as Martin highlights here, despite the pandemic this year is no exception.
Hublot always seems to have a finger on the pulse of what is currently moving people. And in this spirit the brand has recently launched a ‘gender-neutral’ Big Bang in a color marketed as ‘Millennial Pink.’ And Zenith has also recently announced a Zenith Defy El Primero 21 Pink Edition, both of which have prodded Martin Green into taking a dive into ‘gender-neutral watches.’ And he wonders why there aren’t more of them.
