Hublot Classic Fusion Racing Grey: grey matters
Even with the whole 50 Shades furore behind us, grey is still riding high. Hublot has made it the season’s must-have colour by giving its Classic Fusion a head-to-toe grey makeover.

Like James Stewart who, in a classic scene from Frank Capra’s It’s A Wonderful Life, promises to lasso the moon for Donna Reed, Breguet has captured this loveliest of stars and secured it to the wrist. A 30-mm white gold case, diamonds, grand feu enamel dial, and a self-winding, in-house movement with silicon balance spring make an elegant composition. Wonderful, indeed…

Hours and minutes are counted with the remarkable precision of a quartz movement. The one Diva that will always be on time!
