The Hublot Classic Fusion collection, is one of the brand’s strongest lines of watches. It is often paired with another brand for a joint venture, such as Chelsea FC, Italia Independent, Berlutti Scritto, and many others. Hublot’s latest joint venture is the Classic Fusion Bronze Bucherer Blue. Bucherer is without a doubt one of the oldest and best known watch retailers in the world, and a great entity to collaborate with for a joint watch offering. The new Fusion Bronze Bucherer is based on the Classic Fusion Chronograph.
Therefore it has the 45 millimeter in diameter case; also having 13.05 millimeters in thickness. The case is done in bronze and it has a black brushed finish unlike most other bronze watches. This finish gives the watch a weathered look as if it has been around the block a few times already, and its very cool. The bezel is done in black ceramic, and has the Hublot signature titanium H shaped screws. The crown at the 3 o’clock has the Hublot logo, and is also made of black bronze.
The pushers on this watch are made of ceramic, and offer plenty of materials contrast for the watch. The piece has 50 meters of water resistance, and that is fine because this is a sports watch, and is not intended for water activities. As for the dial on the watch, it is done in a sunray blue and it has gold plated hour markers, and the gold plated hour and minute hands. The theme in gold carries on to the subdials, and they have gold rims, markers, and hands. The Hublot logo is at the 12 o’clock, and the word Automatic is at the 6 o’clock done in gold.
The date located at 6 o’clock is done in white font to offer good visibility. The watch offers a blue alligator strap to go with the blue dial, and the strap has gold stitching sewn into it. Every one knows Hublot straps are seriously comfortable, and this is the same deal. The watch is powered by the caliber HUB1143, and is a Hublot self wound chronograph movement. The movement uses a ETA bases chronograph module via Dubois Depraz. The movement has a frequency of 4Hz, and offers a power reserve of 42 hours. The watch has an exhibition caseback, and the owner can watch the movement at work through a sapphire crystal. This watch sells for about $20,000, and more can be learned at hublot.com. Thank you.
