CLASSIC FUSION SPECIAL EDITION LONDON
A DATE WITH THE BIG SMOKE
This limited edition, available exclusively in the New Bond Street and Harrods’ boutique, is a message of love from the Nyon watchmakers to London.
Fashion, music, football… Hublot has never stopped expressing its love for the English capital through creations in its collections and through its partnerships. This year once again, the brand reaffirms its feelings with a new extremely limited series of just 50 pieces. The Classic Fusion Special Edition London center stages a highly-stylized reproduction of the Union Jack on its dial. With a wink of the eye to the cool yet impertinent dandy spirit, the atmosphere bubbles over with elegance enhanced through a delicately-monochrome design. The UK’s flag reigns supreme through satin-brushed and polished finishes which adorn the dial, the bezel and the 45 mm-diameter, 10.95 mm-thick ceramic case (waterproof to a depth of 50 meters). Apart from the date set at 3 o’clock, no indexes disturb this magnificently pared-down composition. The caseback echoes the rareness of this timepiece with the engraved wording “Special Edition” as well as the number of the piece XX/50. The sapphire-crystal which unveils the watch’s engineering displays the slogan “Hublot Loves London”!
The watch’s time data, its hands and date are driven by the MHUB1112 caliber. This self-winding mechanical movement delivers a power reserve of some 42 hours once fully wound.
The Classic Fusion Special Edition London is worn on a black strap, attached by a folding clasp, blending rubber with a touch of velvet embossed with the famous checkered tartan pattern. Ever-so chic!
