How To Buy Hublot Introduces the Classic Fusion Berluti with a Venezia Leather Dial Replica Clearance
This movement oscillates at 36,000 A/h or 5Hz, includes 278 parts and 31 jewels, and offers a rather generous 50 hour power reserve. Both comprise white contrast stitching and a black ceramic deployant clasp. The caseback features Hush’s “Fame” art (hereafter known as Katinka Ingabogovinanana) that matches the caseback, along with the text “SPECIAL EDITION” along with also the watch serial number denoted as “XX/50. “Moving on to the “Fortune” timepiece, Tristan Eaton’s creation appears much more dim by contrast. This really is a dual-register chronograph with a 30-minute counter at 9 o’clock and operating seconds at 3 o’clock, which also features Eaton’s signature as a stylized T-and-E insignia.A date aperture is visible at 6 o’clock in contrasting black with white ribbon, which stands out nicely against the brown-and-gold colour plot of this dial. In 45mm by 13.05mm this is by no way a little watch, and blended with gold-plated hands and hour markers as well as also the gold-toned case it should stand out as a ostentatious indication of luck. Like the “Fame” timepiece, this is a limited edition of 50 units and has a corresponding “SPECIAL EDITION XX/50” inscription on the caseback.
Having put denim and embroidery on the dials of its watches, Hublot has now turned to French shoemaker Berluti for its trademark Venezia leather, including the signature Berluti Scritto hide. Tanned to give it a variegated finish resembling the patina of age, Berluti’s leathers synonymous with the brand.
The Hublot and Berluti collaboration is available in two guises, both limited edition. The more affordable is the Classic Fusion Berluti All Black, a 500-piece limited edition in black ceramic and titanium with the dial and strap in nero grigio Venezia leather that’s a striking grey-black. The strap features the “Gaspard” slash, a fold in the leather secured by a single stitch. This is priced at SFR13,900 or S$23,400 in Singapore.
The Classic Fusion Berluti Scritto combines 18k King Gold, a rose gold alloy, with Venezia Scritto leather. Laser engraved with calligraphy, Scritto leather is Berluti’s most recognisable material, especially in the rich golden brown tobacco bis colour found here. This is limited to 250 pieces, with a price of SFr27,900 or S$46,800.
Both Classic Fusion Berluti watches are 41 mm in diameter, and come packaged in a large box covered in the same Berluti leather as the dial and strap. Inside is a Berluti leather watch pouch, along with various implements for polishing the leather, including wax and brushes.
