Following the celebratory launch event held at London’s Ace Hotel, the luxury Swiss watch manufacturer’s latest partnership with The Watch Gallery marks the creation of two limited edition timepieces; the Classic Fusion & Classic Fusion Chronograph 45mm Special Editions ‘The Watch Gallery’.

Hublot’s vision is to develop luxury timepieces that ‘fuse’ tradition with innovation; a unique philosophy seen in the ‘Classic Fusion’ collection, combining classical watchmaking and cutting-edge design with exceptional craftsmanship.

The Watch Gallery Special Edition watches feature satin-finished titanium cases and highly distinguishable H-shaped screws, meanwhile The Watch Gallery signature blue case-back adds a subtle yet unique design feature.

Inspired by Hublot’s material experimentation, titanium has become increasingly popular in contemporary watchmaking. Not only does it have a distinctive look, it is strong, tough, lightweight, anti-corrosive and hypoallergenic. Hublot has fused titanium with a polished satin- finished black ceramic bezel. The blue trend continues in the blue sun-ray satin-finished dial, and also in the blue rubber and black alligator with blue stitching strap. The watch itself is powered by the HUB1143 automatic calibre and provides 42 hours of power reserve.

The Classic Fusion is Hublot’s contemporary elegant collection and is inspired by avant-garde designs first launched by the company in the early 1980s, shortly after it was founded. Hublot pioneered the use of gold with rubber, daringly fusing precious and industrial materials in a package that disrupted the watchmaking conventions of its time.

Despite only slight differences in the two limited edition models, they change the look of the watch considerably. The Chronograph has polished rhodium-plated hands and a blue chronograph second hand giving it a sports-led look whereas the Classic Fusion is more a classic approach to serve as the perfect everyday watch.

Available throughout The Watch Gallery’s prestigious Hublot outlets: The Wonder Room, Selfridges, Oxford Street, London / The Watch Gallery, Selfridges Manchester Exchange/ The Watch Gallery, Westfield and online at :

Benoît Lecigne, Hublot’s UK & Eastern Europe Brand Director said: "This third collaboration between Hublot and The Watch Gallery demonstrates how a partnership can be successful in the long run if both companies share the same values and common objectives. We have taken up the challenge of creating two limited edition timepieces that embody the Hublot spirit - the perfect mix between Innovation and Tradition - whilst expressing The Watch Gallery DNA - modernity and dynamism."

Adrian Maronneau, Director of Buying & Merchandising at The Watch Gallery said: “I cannot believe we are about to reveal our 3rd limited edition collaboration with Hublot. It’s a pleasure and privilege to further cement our partnership with such an innovative brand. Our limited edition bridges the gap between sports style and an elegant evening watch. The deep blue of the dial will perfectly complement any formal occasion while the fusion of the ceramic bezel and titanium case underline the toughness of the watch with a completely unique and fresh look.”
