Hublot Black Ceramic Classic Fusion Extra Thin
Last year, we saw something strange from Hublot. An extra-dainty Classic Fusion with a skeletonized dial that even stalwarts of the brand didn’t see coming.
This year they raise the stakes considerably more with one straightforward expansion, something that was absent from last year’s model, a dark fired case. A decent looking expansion to the titanium and rose gold forms that were presented a year ago .
Hublot has been acquiring positions in the horological world since its beginning basically because of its huge wrist presence of their somewhat larger than average watches. Obviously, the pattern for oversize watches might be fleeting, yet thinning it down is a stage on the correct bearing for the quest for classicality while holding the dynamic and present day codes that is Hublot.
Last year’s model was an incredible advance towards more slender in-house developments. Hublot’s type HUB1300 comes directly from its production in Nyon. The development quantifies a mere 2.90 mm in stature, comprises of 123 components, of which 23 gems and offers a force hold of walloping 90 hours.
The new extra-dainty skeleton watch from Hublot conveys precisely the same DNA of its more established kin, a width of 45 mm and all visual perspectives that make a watch appear as though a Hublot. What truly separates this piece from its titanium and 18 carat King Gold kin is the all dark fired case that essentially took the idea of skeleton watches from Hublot to an entire diverse level. The outside of the piece is made primarily of ceramic, from the bezel, the case-back, the hauls down to the actual crown is either silk completed or cleaned ceramic.
The contrast finish of this top secret plane like case and its transparent dial gives that lovely sensation of custom and advancement that lone Hublot can pull off. Basically, the piece is a walking logical inconsistency, subtle case and a boisterous dial, Hublot style.
