HUBLOT INTRODUCES THE WATCH GALLERY SPECIAL EDITION
INTRODUCING THE CLASSIC FUSION CHRONOGRAPH AEROFUSION RED
Written by Menswear Style in New Collections on the 11th May 2017 / Hublot Introduces The Watch Gallery Special Edition
Hublot reveals its latest demonstration of perfect fusion with the unveiling of the Classic Fusion Chronograph Aerofusion RED created with The Watch Gallery. The new 45mm timepiece is the latest and fourth collaboration in the established and successful relationship between Hublot and The Watch Gallery.
This season the creative pairing introduces a new and striking colour to the neutral base of the titanium case and black ceramic bezel. In keeping with Hublot’s bold and confident image, RED is the carefully considered accent tone which can be seen adorning the lacquered rings of the special edition timepieces dial, the rhodium plated hands and the accent stitching added to the black alligator leather strap.
The satin-finished and polished titanium case adds a sense of robust durability whilst the expertise of fine watchmaking is elegantly apparent to the trained-eye with the self-winding skeleton chronograph movement featuring a 42-hour power reserve. In continuation of the Hublot vision to develop luxury timepieces that ‘fuse’ tradition with innovation; a unique philosophy seen in the brand’s Classic Fusion collection, combining classical watchmaking and cutting-edge design with exceptional craftsmanship.
Adrian Maronneau, Director of Buying & Merchandising at The Watch Gallery said: “I can’t believe I am introducing our 4th Hublot limited edition. I hope you will agree that we, along with Hublot, have produced some amazingly exclusive watches over the past 3 years using our watch gallery blue as a running theme. But for our 4th limited edition it was time to shake things up a bit, dare I say add a bit of spice, something that Hublot is an absolute master of. I am therefore delighted to present our new TWG Hublot Classic fusion Aerofusion RED chronograph. Fusing titanium and ceramic for the case, the watch, limited to 45 pieces worldwide, sports accents of red through the dial and strap giving it the ultimate sporty edge. I hope you will find this time piece as irresistible as we have.”
The Classic Fusion is the most contemporary and understated of the Hublot collections, and is inspired by the brand’s first avant-garde designs initially launched by the company in 1980, when the brand was founded. Hublot pioneered the innovative use of gold with rubber, daringly fusing precious and industrial materials in iterations that disrupted the watch making conventions of its time. The Classic Fusion Chronograph special edition is limited to just 45 pieces, it is available throughout The Watch Gallery’s prestigious Hublot outlets: The Wonder Room, Selfridges, Oxford Street London; The Watch Gallery, Westfield and online at thewatchgallery.com
