Classic Fusion 8-Day Power Reserve, a Hublot with a timeless charm.
Based on the original Hublot models of the 1980s, the Classic Fusion line is one that embodies a more traditional and elegant spirit of the Hublot aesthetic. With a “less is more” attitude, the Classic Fusion 8-Day Power Reserve presents a new set of complications and a new movement.
Crafted in a 45mm case made of either Titanium or Hublot’s own 18-karat gold alloy King Gold in a mix of polished and vertically satin-brushed surfaces, the Classic Fusion 8-day Power Reserve is slender yet substantial timepiece suitable for every occasion.
The Classic Fusion 8-Day Power Reserve features a new manual-winding movement, the HUB1601 caliber. Through two barrels, the movement provides a power reserve of 8 days or 192 hours when fully wound. The movement is finished with a modern a radial “sunburst” satin-brushed surface, a decoration technique typical of dive watches that recalls the brand’s nautical roots.
The black radial sunburst satin-finished dial is fitted with faceted and polished hands and applied hour markers for a truly classical look. A power reserve complication is placed at the 10 o’clock position, with a small hand and raided arch adding a sense of depth and volume to the dial. The Classic Fusion 8-day Power Reserve also features a date complication at 3 o’clock, as well as an off-centered small seconds dial at 6 o’clock.
For a classical look without compromising the suppleness of Hublot’s signature rubber strap, the watch is fitted on a black alligator leather strap sewn into a rubber backing that is elegant, durable and comfortable.
The Classic Fusion 8-Day Power Reserve is a worthy contender for anyone looking for a classically styled Hublot with a handful of complications and en exclusive movement.
