THE HUBLOT CLASSIC FUSION BRONZE BUCHERER BLUE EDITIONS
CELEBRATING THE UNIQUE ART OF FUSION AND DISRUPTIVE DESIGN
Written by Menswear Style in New Collections on the 15th November 2018 / The Hublot Classic Fusion Bronze Bucherer Blue Editions
Today marks the launch of this stunning bronze and blue watch model designed by Hublot. This timepiece is the latest addition to the popular Bucherer Blue Editions collection, and we’re certainly not disappointed here at MenswearStyle. We must draw your attention to the elaborately designed bronze case and the mechanical automatic movement. A beautiful release and object to look at, it is luxurious yet powerful and it skilfully blends innovation and tradition with an extraordinary combination of materials and revolutionary design to make a particularly strong masculine style statement.
Benoît Lecigne from Hublot comments: “I am very proud to present this boldly crafted edition with our partner Bucherer. Hublot is honoured to be involved in the distinctive Blue Editions which have become an iconic collection for Bucherer. I am confident this edition, which demonstrates the strength and vision of both brands, will be well received and will strengthen our partnership moving forward.” Patrick Graf of Bucherer adds: “I couldn’t agree more with Mr. Lecigne and we are proud to welcome Hublot to the Blue Editions family. The Bucherer Blue Editions are a unique way to demonstrate our strong partnerships with the world’s most renowned watch manufacturers and to offer our customers a collection of extraordinary timepieces they can’t find anywhere else.”
The blue colourway is popular one in menswear, both classic and modern, and this particular shade embodies both innovation and tradition as well as modernity and dynamism. This fascinating mix of opposites has resulted in a truly unique approach to creating the new timepiece and the philosophy behind the Classic Fusion collection is the watch manufacturer’s vision to combine classic watchmaking, pioneering design and outstanding craftsmanship – a great source of inspiration for the new Bucherer Blue Editions model. It is a special edition Hublot that has been created for Bucherer to celebrate the unique art of fusion and disruptive design, featuring the combination of precious metals and industrial materials, created as an homage to the brand’s original designs first released in the 1980s.
The bronze case is rather unique too. It is actually a first for Hublot to use this material and they’ve teamed it nicely with a black ceramic bezel and six H-shaped titanium screws – an uncommon and powerful blend of materials and colours that creates a bold style statement for the manly man. The blue satin-polished dial with a sunray finish further emphasises the masculine design, and a blue rubber strap in combination with alligator leather adds the perfect finishing touches to this magnificent creation. This timepiece is for the modern gentleman, as it features a beautiful natural patina with subtle yellow and pink undertones that will develop an individual charm over time, ensuring every watch is a unique piece for its wearer.
The watch has a diameter of 45 mm and boasts a mechanical HUB1112 automatic movement with a 42-hour power reserve and a date display. The new special edition is £15000 is available exclusively in selected Bucherer stores in the UK and online via uk.bucherer.com today.
