Baselworld 2012, the largest exhibition of launches in the watchmaking world, will be held between March 8 and 15 and promises to amaze enthusiasts and collectors with the news of their exhibitors.
Hublot Replica, which always features innovative models, will officially launch its latest creation – the Replica Hublot Classic Fusion Extra-Thin Skeleton. For the first time in the manufacturer’s history, the Classic Fusion collection model will feature extremely thin case and skeletizing, which will showcase all the modern and dynamic design of its movement.
Two limited editions will be shown at the Hublot showroom in Basel this week – in 18-carat pink gold or titanium, both polished satin finish. With 45 mm diameter, the box houses the mechanism developed in-house by Hublot, which is only 2.90 mm thick, a true masterpiece of precision and sophistication.
Both the crown and the bezel were made with the same material as the box and have trademarks of the Hublot brand: a stylized ‘H’ decorates the top of the crown, while six screws adorn the diameter of the bezel.
All the beauty and excellence of the HUB1300 hand-wound watchmaking craftsmanship can be seen through sapphire crystals with anti-glare treatment that seal the box above and below. The mainframe in black resin composite has a beautiful graphic effect that captivates the eyes of those who observe the movement of each tiny piece. Other technical features of the new Hublot replica Classic Fusion Extra-Thin Skeleton are the 90-hour rope reserve and watertightness up to 50 meters deep.
The dial skeleton counts on hour indicators in King Gold or titanium, depending on the model. A smaller display, located at the 7 o’clock position, displays the seconds with maximum accuracy. The hands follow the pattern of the other Classic Fusion watches, marking the tradition and superiority in high-end watchmaking of the Hublot brand.
To wrap up this stylish specimen, the black crocodile leather strap has been rubberized inside for better ergonomics and wrist comfort. The deployant clasp was made in 18 carat pink gold or PVD with black finish for titanium editing.
Exhibiting a splendid balance between the classicism of the extra-fine look, the ultimate symbol of watchmaking and the contemporary design that is Hublot’s trademark, the Classic Fusion Extra-Thin Skeleton has been recognized as a COSC chronometer and exalts the fusion between tradition and modernity.
The new fake Hublot Classic Fusion Extra-Thin Skeleton is available in two versions with limited quantities. Only 1,000 pieces with titanium box and 500 units with 18 carat pink gold (King Gold) box will be made.
