After a first successful Hublot-Berluti offering in 2016, the Swiss watch brand has extended its collaboration with the Parisian shoemaker to the "Classic Fusion Chronograph," with a model finished in the firm's signature Venezia leather.
Hublot presented the "Classic Fusion Berluti" at Baselworld 2016, featuring a strap and a dial finished in genuine Venezia leather. The timepiece symbolised a veritable technical feat, combining Hublot's watchmaking expertise with Berluti's signature leather craftsmanship.
"Over the generations, Berluti has developed its exceptional expertise to perfect the patina of its leathers. Combining traditional craftsmanship with our technical expertise has enabled us to marry this natural material with the mechanical refinement of Hublot. With a coordinated style from wrist to toe, the modern gentleman is the epitome of elegance!" said Ricardo Guadalupe, Hublot CEO.
One year later, the Swiss watch brand is extending the partnership to its "Classic Fusion Chronograph," with a Berluti edition using the same exceptional material. Here, the technical procedure is even more complex since the watch dial features two subdials—one at three o'clock and one at nine o'clock.
The new Berluti-edition "Classic Fusion Chronograph" has a 45mm case available in two versions: Scritto King Gold and Scritto All Black (black ceramic). The dial and strap are finished in Berluti's Venezia leather in black or brown.
Each model is a 250-piece limited edition and comes in a "Berluti Bespoke" presentation box including a Berluti wax kit.
