Luxury Introducing the Hublot x Berluti Classic Fusion Chronograph Replica Wholesale
Swiss watchmaker Hublot are observing their continuing “HUBLOT LOVES ART” campaign by partnering with street artists Hush and Tristan Eaton. Hush was tasked with designing “Fame,” in the form of the Hublot Spirit of Big Bang West Coast Ceramic Black and White. Tristan Eaton’s collaboration piece is so “Fortune,” in the form of the Hublot Classic Fusion 45mm Chronograph East Coast Bronze.Street artist Hush is representing America’s West Coast with his timepiece, specifically Hollywood and its affiliation with fame. Though Hush is in fact based in London, he is known for his work with frescoes during Los Angeles, including areas of West Hollywood, Melrose, and Santa Monica. The Hublot Spirit of Big Bang West Coast Ceramic Black and White is Hush’s first collaboration piece with all the newest, designed about a monochromatic portrait of a posing girl who is unnamed but for some reason reminds me strongly of Milla Jovovich’s character in Zoolander.Tristan Eaton has a creative agency named Thunderdog Studios situated in New York, and lots of his large scale murals are featured in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York City. The bronze case is intended to symbolize the iconic Charging Bull sculpture on the bowling green of Lower Manhattan. That is Eaton’s second collaboration slice with Hublot, having previously designed the Classic Fusion Aerofusion Concrete Jungle watch for its newest in 2016.
Having debuted Berluti’s leather on the dial of the time-only Classic Fusion last year, Hublot is once again using the Parisian shoemaker’s signature material, this time on a chronograph.
The Classic Fusion Chronograph Berluti uses Berluti’s Venezia Scritto leather that’s laser-engraved with calligraphy for the dial and strap.
Two apertures have been cut into the leather of the dial to accommodate the chronograph registers, while the hour markers are embossed batons.
The 45mm case is available in either 18k King Gold or black ceramic, matched with brown or black leather respectively. The movement inside is the HUB1143, which is an ETA 2893.
Like the first Berluti edition, the chronograph is packaged in a large Berluti-leather covered box that also contains a shoe care set comprised of brushes, creams and a mitten.
