The art of fusion is a marvel…one that Hublot is known for! With the Classic Fusion Italia Independent the brand surpasses excellence!
It is a collection born out of a veritable fusion: the watchmaking expertise of Hublot, the limitless creativity of Italia Independent through its founder Lapo Elkann, and the treasures of the famous Italian tailor Rubinacci.
Since 2014, two collections have been born from the partnership between Hublot, Italia Independent and Lapo Elkann. Although both of the previous collections were based on the legendary Big Bang Unico model, this time the Classic Fusion model was the canvas for expressing this dynamic relationship. The name also suited the concept well…after all, the watch is a fusion of classic design and innovation.
It all started at the House of Rubinacci, that holds the most beautiful collection of fabrics in its archives. It was here, in more than 60,000 square metres of precious houndstooth, tweeds and other cloths that Hublot and Lapo Elkann found a collection of tartans, squared coloured wool weaves from the seventies, that they brought back to life by including them in the Classic Fusion as a chronograph.
Tartan is thus the precious fabric that has been used on the dial and straps of this 45 mm timekeeper. This feat was possible due to Hublot’s capacity for technical innovation and willingness to experiment. Three different case materials have been chosen to be expressed in three different timepieces: Satin-finish and polished titanium,Satin-finish and polished black ceramic and Satin-finish and polished 18 carat King Gold. The HUB1143 calibre, automatic chronograph movement, beats in the watches from the collection.
An epitome of elegance and style, where the worlds of fashion and timekeeping merge in the most exceptional way! The Classic Fusion Italia Independent is indeed a made-to-measure collection!
