BaselWorld 2017

The famous Swiss watchmaker, Hublot, has just announced the launch of its brand new collection designed in collaboration with Italia Independent, a famous Italian design company, and its founder Lapo Elkann. Since 2014, this imaginative partnership has given rise to two distinct collections, both based on the iconic Big Bang Unico model.

Hublot Classic Fusion Italia Independent Collection

Ahead of the BaselWorld 2017, Hublot and Italia Independent unveil the first Classic Fusion model, which represents the fusion of three forms of expertise: technical excellence of Hublot, creativity of Italia Independent, and craft of the famous Italian tailor Rubinacci.

Hublot Classic Fusion Italia Independent Collection

Lapo Elkann, Founder and Artistic Director of Italia Independent, had envisioned custom and bespoke designs, which represent true luxury. The e “sartoria Rubinacci,” which holds the most beautiful collection of fabrics in its archives, provided a collection of tartans—squared colored wool weaves from the seventies— to dress the special new version of the Classic Fusion Chronograph. The dial and the straps of these unique, limited edition watches have been made using these rare fabrics. The original designs were inspired by the costumes that Rubinacci makes for Lapo Elkann.

Hublot Classic Fusion Italia Independent Collection includes six different references, available in either satin-finish and polished titanium, satin-finish and polished black ceramic, or satin-finish and polished 18 K King Gold. Each watch from this exquisite series measures 45mm in diameter, and 13.05 mm in thickness. The dials are fitted with authentic fabrics from Rubinnaci’s suits, including "Houndstooth,” "Prince of Wales," and "Tartan. Their crowns, push-buttons, and case-backs are crafted from the very same material as the case. The reverse side, on each of them, is engraved with the inscription "Limited Edition 50NUM," designating the exclusiveness of the series.

The watches of the Hublot Classic Fusion Italia Independent Collection are powered by Hublot’s automatic chronograph movement HUB1143 calibre, which is assembled from 280 individual components and 59 rubies. The movement beats at a frequency of 28'800 vibrations per hour, providing up to 42 hours of power reserve. The cases, which are water resistant to 50 meters, are mounted on authentic fabric straps made from the same material as the dial.
