Bruce Lee and Hublot share the East-West fusion

   As the world’s most influential legendary star, Bruce Lee is the best interpretation of the fusion of Eastern and Western cultures. As a pioneer of the times, he was the first pioneer to spread Chinese kung fu to the world, and dazzled his life in the spread of Eastern and Western cultures. Since the establishment of Hublot in Nyon, Switzerland in 1980, Hublot has always been advancing with a pioneering spirit, breaking through the understanding of traditional concepts, boldly crossing the boundaries between tradition and modernity, allowing the past and the future to dialogue, and has achieved countless achievements. A ‘first’.
   The unprecedented fusion comes from Bruce Lee’s innovative reorganization of Eastern and Western martial arts. For the first time, he broke the door of traditional martial arts and boldly combined Taoist philosophy from the East with Wing Chun, Western boxing and karate, and Taekwondo to create Jeet Kune Do. This coincides with the ‘art of fusion’ advocated by Hublot. Featuring a natural rubber strap paired with precious metal materials, Hublot has set a new and unprecedented precedent in the history of traditional watchmaking. Since then, the fusion of materials, the fusion of East and West, each collision will produce amazing breakthrough innovations. The way of integration lies in deconstruction and reorganization, shaping a new world and future, and passing on with the times to achieve inheritance and immortality.
   Truly handed down for the sake of thought and philosophy, not just skills, this is one of the reasons why Kung Fu philosopher Bruce Lee is still revered today. In his martial arts creation, he adopted the spirit of Baichuan and advocated people-oriented. Bruce Lee explained the Jeet Kune Do philosophy he created as an exploration process of self-discovery and soul growth. Hublot believes in the natural power of cosmic energy, and the birth of the Big Bang series is also inspired by this. In the process of exploring the concept of fusion between mineral and plant elements, Hublot takes time as the basis and explores the philosophy of watchmaking. And the art of fusion does not only happen in the above two fields, but also the integration of the sky and the earth, tradition and innovation.
