We’re not going to ask you if you are aware of Hublot as a brand and of one of their specialties: partnerships. We bet you’re aware of this. For the 2016 edition of Baselworld, this is not going to change. However, their latest collaboration made a huge impression on us, first because the brand they are teaming with is certainly amongst the finest shoemakers around the world and also because the concept has been pushed extremely far, making it quite striking. Here is the Hublot Classic Fusion Berluti replica watch!
Doing a strap with the leather manufacturer could have been a nice idea for the Hublot Classic Fusion Berluti replica watch. Adding a box entirely made in leather and looking like a shoe box, full of accessories, would have also been a nice touch. But what about having a dial made in leather? That would be something quite interesting. That’s exactly what Hublot thought about when designing the Classic Fusion Berluti replica watch. Having a dial made of leather is something that must have been rather challenging for the brand, considering the need of resistance to UV, light or water.
This dial of Hublot Classic Fusion Berluti replica watch is made in embossed leather by Berluti, the Parisian shoemaker that celebrated its 120th birthday in 2015. Indexes and logo, even if similar to the other watches of the brand, are here embossed directly in the leather – a superb, slightly grained leather with a warm patina and unique tobacco brown colour. This Hublot replica watch dial makes a perfect contrast with the Classic Fusion case, here in 45mm and 18k King Gold, for this Scritto edition of the Hublot Classic Fusion Berluti.
The Hublot Classic Fusion Berluti replica watch is also featured with a matching strap, using the classical “fusion” concept of the brand, meaning a rubber strap with a leather insert on top. The strap shares its colour with the dial and features inscriptions, sort of written scarifications. And the Hublot Classic Fusion Berluti replica watch is delivered into a superb presentation box, looking like a shoebox, made in the same leather as the strap, with the same sort of artistic writings.
Even at 45mm and made in gold, this Hublot Classic Fusion Berluti replica watch remains relatively slim and comfortable on the wrist. It is for sure a bold and large watch but it remains balanced and easily wearable.
