Baselworld – Hublot Classic Fusion Extra–Thin Skeleton
Something completely new from Hublot: an extra-dainty skeleton watch. Hublot made a model in the Classic Fusion assortment by adding a skeletonized dial and a pristine in-house extra-meager movement.
At Monochrome we previously inquired as to whether Piaget planned to start a precedent and deciding on the new turns of events, similar to the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Openworked Extra-Thin , we surmise they did. Albeit the new Hublot Classic Fusion Extra-Thin Skeleton and fore-mentioned AP RO don’t have completely PVD covered development, they are extra-meager and skeletonized.
The new Hublot caliber HUB1300 is 2.90 mm thick, which is 0.20 mm thicker than Piaget’s type 838P . The two types are skeletonized and hand-wound. Albeit the distinction in thickness of the development is insignificant, Hublot’s case appears to be a lot thicker. The development Audemars Piguet utilized in the Royal Oak Openworked is the ultra-thin self-winding calibre 5122, which is 3.05 mm thick (same thickness as the renowned type 2121 ).
Skeletonizing an extra-meager development is troublesome and it’s impractical to establish another precedent for the most slender development, in the event that you plan to skeletonize it. Basically envision a development of under 3 mm thick… undoubtedly, that’s as thick as two Visas! It actually needs to control your watch with at any rate a day of force save and run inside COSC specifications.
Hublot made a terrific showing here, conveying no under 90 hours of force save from this extra-slight development! Some more specs: 123 components, 23 gems and it beats with 21,600 vibrations each hour (3Hz).
The skeletonized dial makes it conceivable to see the watch’s escapement. The dial side highlights a little seconds at 7 o’clock.
The new Hublot Classic Fusion Extra-Thin Skeleton estimates 45 mm in breadth and this is the biggest size accessible in the Classic Fusion assortment. Other watches in that assortment measure 38 mm and 42 mm in breadth. The new Classic Fusion Extra-Thin Skeleton is 50 meters water safe and is accessible in two variants, one in titanium, restricted to 1000 pieces, and the other in 18K ‘King Gold’, with only 500 pieces.
