Hublot has announced the launch of a new limited edition watch to celebrate the brand’s “special relationship” with the city of London.
The Hublot Classic Fusion Special Edition ‘London’ is described as a “statement piece” which aims to “capture something of London’s fast-paced, high-achieving spirit”.
It features a polished, satin-finished black ceramic bezel as well as a micro-blasted, sunray-finished racing grey dial which is engraved with a Union Jack motif.
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.
Its sapphire crystal case back is decorated with ‘Hublot Loves London’, and the black rubber strap features a “velvet touch representing a playful City of London tartan theme”.
The watch is limited to 50 pieces, and each one is engraved with the limited edition number.
Omar Choudhary, Hublot brand director UK, said: ‘‘The Hublot Classic Fusion Special Edition ‘London’ is the product of Hublot’s passion for this ever-evolving world city.
It’s a symbol of the special relationship between us and the values of quality, excellence and style Hublot and London share.
Our loyal local clients have been asking for a watch that brings the invention and creativity of Hublot’s fusion watchmaking philosophy to bear on a London-themed piece.
We know both they and our international visitors who love coming here will enjoy the spirit behind it, too. Hublot loves London!’
