In the heart of Vienna, the Swiss luxury watch manufacturer Hublot has opened the doors of its new boutique. Hublot CEO Ricardo Guadalupe, along with Friends of the Brand, welcomed guests to celebrate the official opening of the boutique in Vienna.
The evening began with the official ribbon cutting by Ricardo Guadalupe along with Olivia Cowan, golfer and Hublot Friend of the Brand. After the official welcome, guests discovered the new 100 square meter boutique over an aperitif.
The rest of the ceremony took place just a few meters away in the iconic Fabios, which opened its doors exclusively to Hublot and was transformed into a Hublot brand world. In the middle of the pedestrian zone, surrounded by magnificent architecture, Hublot opened its new boutique in the Golden Quarter. The Swiss watch manufacturer can be found at Seitzergasse 1/3, in the most exclusive and magnificent area of Vienna.
Upon entering the boutique, watch lovers immerse themselves directly in the world of Hublot and can explore the unique watches of the Maison in spacious and luxurious rooms. The sophisticated interior design unmistakably reflects the brand philosophy “The Art of Fusion” and skilfully combines a wide variety of high-quality materials. Pop art paintings inspired by Hublot’s iconic watch collection can also be found on the walls in Vienna – a hallmark of all Hublot boutiques worldwide and a tribute to the brand’s deep connection with the art world. With the reopening of its Viennese boutique, the manufactory has succeeded in a perfect fusion of innovation and luxury and creates an inviting ambience for visitors, who can fully enjoy the world of Hublot and its timepieces on site.
We are proud that we can now offer our friends and watch lovers a new place in the heart of the most exclusive district of Vienna, where they can discover the unique Hublot universe. It is therefore with great pleasure that I inaugurate the new Hublot boutique in the heart of the city. Another big milestone for our Maison.

Hublot is a Swiss watch manufacturer founded in 1980 and based in Nyon. As the first and thus groundbreaking creation, Hublot combined gold with a rubber strap and a sporty case designed to resemble a porthole. This is how the “Art of Fusion” was born: the merging of tradition and innovation, craftsmanship, worlds and talents. It has become the aesthetic and technical signature of the brand.
This identity was reinforced in 2005 with the presentation of the Big Bang. It stands for unsurpassed expertise in complications, manufacture movements and top-quality materials. Titanium, ceramic and sapphire have been developed to unprecedented extremes in this model.
This revolutionary, avant-garde and high-quality approach to watchmaking is reflected in the philosophy “Be First, Unique and Different”. Based on this, further collections with innovative designs were gradually created: Classic Fusion, Spirit of Big Bang, Square Bang and Manufacture Pieces. They are all characterized by a high level of craftsmanship, both in terms of the materials favored by Hublot (magic gold, brightly colored ceramics, sapphire) and in the manufacture movements (Chronograph Unico, Meca-10 and great complications, the minute repeater Cathedral and the special Manufacture Pieces movements).
