Classic Fusion Ferrari GT Hublot Novelty
Since the very start of their collaboration in 2011, Hublot and Ferrari have always created watches with a unique design and motorisation. Each new edition introduces a new style. This year, Hublot presents an elegant and contemporary piece that draws inspiration from the “Gran Turismo” universe. The launch of the Classic Fusion Ferrari GT watch – with its extremely innovative design which integrates the new UNICO manufacture movement in a body with distinctive and dynamic lines – sees Hublot and Ferrari write a new chapter in their collaboration.
The long-term collaboration between Hublot and Ferrari is one of a kind and an endless source of creative inspiration that builds on the common values these two prestigious houses share. The constant drive for innovation and refinement behind the unstoppable creative impetus of both Ferrari and Hublot has come to life in the Big Bang Ferrari, the MP-05 LaFerrari and the Techframe. The collaboration first drew inspiration from the racing world and Formula 1, with the Big Bang Ferrari editions. In 2017, Hublot and Ferrari expanded to the universe of GT, with the Techframe Ferrari Tourbillon Chronograph specifically created to celebrate the 70th anniversary of Ferrari. This year the collaboration goes a step further in this world, which has always defined a travel philosophy that combines tradition, elegance and technical perfection.
“Driving over long distances at high speed in comfort and with style.” This is what the “Gran Turismo” spirit is about. The term also defines a category of limited-production, very high-performance luxury cars. The GT world is one of innovation and refinement, with a passion for mechanics performance and innovation and an appreciation for elegance and beauty. To pay homage to the “Grand Touring” cars, Hublot and Ferrari have now combined for the first time their sense of aesthetic creativity and mechanical innovation in a Classic Fusion, a watchmaking chassis that is both traditional and modern, in line with the stylistic codes of the GT universe.
Another first: the famous UNICO manufacture movement has been integrated into a 45-mm-diameter Classic Fusion case. This is the second of Hublot’s own chronograph calibres, unveiled in 2018 (HUB1280). Protected by four patents, this self-winding flyback chronograph movement, with 4 Hz frequency (28’800 A/h) and a column wheel that can be seen from the dial side, has technical specifications that are fit for a champion with, in particular, a thickness of only 6.75 mm and 3-day power reserve that is very useful for day-to-day life. The entirely new Classic Fusion Ferrari GT is available in three different cases: Titanium (limited edition of 1,000 pieces), King Gold (limited edition of 500 pieces) and 3D Carbon (limited edition of 500 pieces).
