Yes, it is a Hublot Classic Fusion All Black Replica for people who might not love Hublots and are looking for something fresh in a sea of watches which blend into the crowd. It offers a distinctive motion, in addition to elegant and classy looks housed in a modern, 45mm-wide case that is softened by being quite thin. You may definitely understand the “worth” of what Hublot is supplying here, especially if you’re the kind of person who wishes to show off without being obnoxious about it. Truly, it is one of my favorite Hublot pieces and a watch I adore overall. The Hublot Classic Fusion Power Reserve Titanium isn’t cheap at $16,400, but in case you are interested in the type of piece I just described, you should give this opinion a severe look.The new Hublot Classic Fusion Chronograph Berluti Scritto watches build upon the success of the year’s Classic Fusion Berluti watch. And like last year’s version, the new watches use Berluti’s distinctive patinated leathers for its straps as well as the dials, making an effect of the strap continuing right through the lookout for quite a cohesive look.Two models will be offered, one in 18k King Gold with a brown leather strap, along with the other in black ceramic with a black leather strap. To put it differently, the characteristics that define the timeless Fusion Chronograph case, such as the H-shaped screws, incorporated lugs, and differing finishes in the circumstance, are all intact. Water resistance is graded at 50m.
Hublot extends ceramic even further by releasing the first high-end watch with red ceramic. Red is now added to white, black, blue, brown, and gray which are used in more and more watches each year as ceramic’s popularity increases. Hublot isn’t new to taking the lead when it comes to novel materials. In the past we have seen them create special combinations of materials: for King Gold a mixture of copper and platinum is used to stabilize and colorize the precious metal while to create the highly scratch resistant Magic Gold an alloy of pure gold and ceramics had been invented. They also released the first red-tinted sapphire crystal in a timepiece. For Only Watch Auction, Hublot wanted to add a unique flair to a material that has been becoming ubiquitous in the entire industry in line with the red theme color of the charity auction.
Used for the bezel, this new bright red ceramic is straight from the foundries and R&D dungeons of the manufacture. The brand premieres it with its one-of-a-kind Classic Fusion Skeleton Tourbillon piece, made exclusively for the Only Watch Auction. The charity event will take place in Monaco in late September, 2013. Of course the red shade of the bezel was carefully chosen to match the red of Monaco and its “magic formula” has been internationally patented. Zirconium dioxide – as it is less often referred to – is sintered at very high temperatures to achieve its hardness and scratch resistance. Thanks to those qualities it is mostly used for parts of the case and also for the bezel of certain models. Pure zirconium oxide ceramic is white and translucent, but may be colored black, yellow, blue, or now bright red by mixing in complex mixtures of metal oxides.
The Classic Fusion Skeletonize tourbillon has a 45mm wide case made of ceramics, titanium and a composite resin. The tourbillon movement is Hublot’s in-house MHUB6010.H1.1 with 5 days of power reserve, 19 jewels and it beats at 21,600 bph. The strap is black alligator on black rubber with red stitches and a PVD steel deployment buckle. Make sure you do not miss any of the other unique pieces, they are all listed in Ariel’s round-up!
