The Hublot Classic Fusion Special Edition ‘London’ is a statement piece, designed to capture something of London’s fast-paced, high-achieving spirit. Its polished and satin-finished black ceramic bezel and micro-blasted, sunray-finished racing grey dial are engraved with a Union Jack motif, a patriotic touch that radiates both classic British understatement and the capital’s cool confidence. The watch’s 10 signature ‘H’ screws set into the bezel and case are cast in contrasting polished titanium.
The 45mm black ceramic case houses Hublot’s MHUB1112 automatic movement, which provides the watch with time and date functions and a 42-hour power reserve. A flash of red at the tip of the central seconds hand gives the watch’s monochromatic palette a sporty twist. The sapphire crystal case back is decorated with ‘Hublot Loves London’. The finishing touch is a black rubber strap with a velvet touch representing a playful City of London tartan theme (as listed on The Scottish Register of Tartans), and is water-resistant to 50 meters. The watch is limited to 50 pieces, each engraved with the limited-edition number, and will only be available from Hublot’s New Bond Street and Harrods boutiques.
