Hublot and Ferrari are writing a new page in their collaboration, which began in 2011. The Classic Fusion Ferrari GT, designed with Gran Turismo in mind, integrates a new in-house Unico movement.

The long-term collaboration between Hublot and Ferrari is an endless source of creative inspiration that builds on the common values these two prestigious houses share. The constant drive for innovation behind the creative impetus of both Ferrari and Hublot has come to life in the Big Bang Ferrari, the MP-05 LaFerrari and the Techframe. To pay homage to the “Grand Touring” cars, Hublot and Ferrari have now combined for the first time their sense of aesthetic creativity and mechanical innovation in a Classic Fusion, a watchmaking chassis that is both traditional and modern, in line with the stylistic codes of the GT universe. Another first: the famous Unico manufacture movement has been integrated into a 45-mm-diameter Classic Fusion case. This is the second of Hublot’s own chronograph calibres, unveiled in 2018 (HUB1280). Protected by four patents, this self-winding flyback chronograph movement, with 4Hz frequency (28,800 A/h) and a column wheel that can be seen from the dial side, has technical specifications that are fit for a champion with, in particular, a thickness of only 6.75mm and 3-day power reserve that is very useful for day-to-day life. The entirely new Classic Fusion Ferrari GT is available in three different cases: Titanium (limited edition of 1,000 pieces), King Gold (limited edition of 500 pieces) and 3D Carbon (limited edition of 500 pieces).

All-new in the Fine Watchmaking world, 3D Carbon is a polymer matrix composite (PMC) made of three-dimensional fibres. This high-tech material, which is very popular in motorsport, has outstanding qualities of resistance and, in the case of the Classic Fusion Ferrari GT, offers a lightweight but solid layer of protection, to the UNICO manufacture movement. Designed by the “Centro Stile Ferrari”, the new Classic Fusion Ferrari GT draws inspiration from the GT designed and crafted in the Maranello workshops. Its design is very contemporary; Hublot worked on the motor and Ferrari on the body. One of the main design features of the Classic Fusion Ferrari GT is the case, conceived as a true concentrical suspended element that enhances the dial presence and the sophisticated manufacturing making process. For this purpose, the “Centro Stile Ferrari” designers applied their expertise, building bridges between automotive design and watchmaking motorisation, and thereby proving that they love to work and surpass themselves on other projects than those linked to cars.
