This year marks the 10th anniversary of the Big Bang, the symbol of Hublot’s rebirth and an undoubted emblem of creativity and innovation. Hublot celebrates by launching a new award to recognize talented, young designers of tomorrow.

The Hublot Design Prize provides an opportunity for young, independent designers to assert themselves through their creations, and to gain much-deserved public recognition. The prize will go to the one who distinguishes him or herself with boldness and creativity.
