CLASSIC FUSION ORIGINAL
42 years of audacity
Hublot brings back the watch that shook up conventions in 1980. Both refined and sporty, this precious gold case strapped on a simple rubber strap, unthinkable at the time, sent huge shock waves through the world of fine watchmaking. By winning over an audience of connoisseurs who were searching for different watch products, so began a tireless visionary momentum, impelled by audacity. This vision inspires the Maison in everything it does, including new product development, designs and partnerships. The Classic Fusion Original celebrates this youthful maturity with timeless simplicity.
Echoes of Carlo Crocco’s original design are recognizable in the rubber strap, the purity of the polished black lacquered dial that is only distracted by time, embodied by the facetted hands; the yellow gold and the Maison’s hallmark signature. At first sight, seemingly similar to the original, the logo has become more modern and contemporary over time. A past tense conjugated in the present.
Today, the Classic Fusion Original is available in yellow gold, titanium and ceramic; the cases are available in 42, 38 and 33mm. Like the seals, the 6 famous screws place their hallmark on the bezels; their sapphire case backs reveal the mechanical parts. Hublot’s iconic details bring the original watch up-to-date, to undoubtedly make it a new timeless, classic.
A case of returning to the past to better shape the future.
“Daring...
