Hublot and Watches of Switzerland have together unveiled an exclusive special edition timepiece.
The Classic Fusion Aerofusion Chronograph ‘Watches of Switzerland Group’ edition was launched at an “immersive” digital event hosted by Brian Duffy, CEO and Craig Bolton, executive director of the Watches of Switzerland Group.
Alongside them, Omar Choudhary, brand director UK and Ireland and Jean Francois, president USA, of Hublot also hosted the event.
The timepiece will be available exclusively from Watches of Switzerland showrooms in the UK and US.
According to both groups, the Classic Fusion Aerofusion Chronograph ‘Watches of Switzerland Group’ special edition is an “amalgamation” of Hublot’s Art of Fusion philosophy and The Watches of Switzerland Group’s premium Swiss watches.
The 45mm timepiece “seamlessly blends” a black ceramic case with a black skeleton dial featuring red details, which are also seen on the alligator and rubber strap.
It 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 Watches of Switzerland since 2018.
Ricardo Guadalupe, CEO of Hublot, said: “We are delighted to work with The Watches of Switzerland Group once again on a collaboration that perfectly unites our skills and passion for the finest Swiss horology.
“This is a great example of fusion between our two brands, and we look forward to having this Special Edition presented to Watches of Switzerland Group clients.”
Brian Duffy, CEO of Watches of Switzerland Group, said: “We are pleased to announce the latest expression of our ongoing collaboration with Hublot.
“This special edition timepiece is a combination of classic and contemporary watchmaking, making it a real collector’s item. We have worked closely with Hublot’s design team and are delighted with the result.”
