Born out of founder Carlo Croco's desire to create his own watch in the 1970s, luxury Swiss watch brand Hublot (French for porthole) was founded in 1980, and instantly became world-renowned for its innovative rubber strap - never before seen in the watch industry.
The art of fusion
Ever since, the brand has continued to pioneer watches with novel cases and materials, calling it 'The Art of Fusion' in which traditional watchmaking techniques are combined with modern innovation.
We have enjoyed over 30 years of collaboration with Hublot, and 2020 was the most exciting year to date with new developments. We expanded Hublot's boutique presence to 18 Watches of Switzerland Group stores in the UK, and four in the US, allowing our customers to immerse themselves into the Hublot experience with our highly trained experts in store. Upon entering the new Hublot areas, visitors are greeted by the unique ‘Art of Fusion’ inspired Hublot décor.
Classic Fusion Aerofusion Chronograph ‘Watches of Switzerland Group’ Special Edition
The Classic Fusion Aerofusion Chronograph watch is a piece that combines tradition and innovation, something that has been at the heart of Hublot watchmaking for decades. The Classic Fusion Aerofusion Chronograph ‘Watches of Switzerland Group’ Special Edition 45mm blends a striking black ceramic case with a black skeleton dial featuring red details, which are also seen on the alligator and rubber strap. The timepiece carries a HUB1155 self-winding chronograph movement and has a 42-hour power reserve.
The new Classic Fusion created in collaboration with the Watches of Switzerland Group adds to previous special editions created jointly by Hublot and the Watches of Switzerland Group since 2018. This is an ideal piece for those wanting something unique within their watch collection. As the piece is exclusive to us and only available in our stores in the UK and the US, it means that the watch would be a fine purchase for any collector who likes to stand out from the crowd.
