Description

With this partnership, Hublot continues its path in style – lifestyle and fashion oriented collaborations. Like they did with denim watches, with camo printings or even with lace, the latest idea was to insert leather. Well, in fact most watches do already have leather, at least those on a leather strap. So Hublot had to find something more. From the words of the CEO, Ricardo Guadalupe, the brand “wanted to go beyond the traditional approach to leather and work with THE most emblematic leather there is. Working with Berluti was a natural choice“.


Doing a strap with the leather manufacturer could have been a nice (but easy…) idea. Adding a box entirely made in leather and looking like a shoe box, full of accessories, would have also been a nice touch. But what about having a dial made in leather? That would be something quite interesting. That’s exactly what Hublot thought about when designing the Classic Fusion Berluti. Having a dial made of leather is something that must have been rather challenging for the brand, considering the need of resistance to UV, light or water (just in case some water comes in your Hublot Classic Fusion Berluti… something you don’t really wish). Using a living material in a sealed case is very complicated.



And Hublot certifies that the dial underwent the same tests as all the other dials made for Hublot, and it passed them. This dial is here made in embossed leather by Berluti, the Parisian shoemaker that celebrated its 120th birthday in 2015. Indexes and logo, even if similar to the other watches of the brand, are here embossed directly in the leather – a superb, slightly grained leather with a warm patina and unique tobacco brown colour. This dial makes a perfect contrast with the Classic Fusion case, here in 45mm and 18k King Gold, for this Scritto edition of the Hublot Classic Fusion Berluti



The Hublot Classic Fusion Berluti is also featured with a matching strap, using the classical “fusion” concept of the brand, meaning a rubber strap with a leather insert on top (guarantying a very high durability and great comfort). The strap shares its colour with the dial and features inscriptions, sort of written scarifications (which explains the name “Scritto”). And the watch is delivered into a superb presentation box, looking like a shoebox, made in the same leather as the strap, with the same sort of artistic writings. Hublot pushed the concept very far, as all the usual shoe care accessories that you’ll find in a Berluti shoes box are also in the Hublot Classic Fusion Berluti box.
