Hublot Classic Fusion 40 Years Anniversary

On the occasion of the 40th anniversary of the 1980 Classic Original watch, Hublot launches the 2020 edition of the classic watch - the Classic Fusion 40 Years Anniversary.

It was 1980 when Hublot broke the conventional code and released a gold watch with a rubber strap. An unconventional approach at that time, the Hublot Classic Original made news as one of the first dress watches that broke all norms. Featuring a rubber strap on a gold case was unheard of before and it became an instant classic.

40 years later, Hublot releases the Classic Fusion 40 years Anniversary model available in three versions- 18k yellow gold, titanium and black ceramic. Straddling the past and the future, the timepiece is a perfect example of Hublot's historical legacy and its recent foray into the world of fusion.

The 2020 edition is deeply inspired by the 1980 Classic Original watch and lays a solid foundation of the brand's intention to be known as a Haute Horlogerie brand. “These Classic Fusion models embody 40 years packed with technological advances and breaking with convention. Not content with simply reissuing the 1980 Classic Original, we have reinterpreted it to reflect the Hublot of today. One model with a mechanical movement in a 45 mm format for men. A brand-new contemporary version that celebrates Hublot's innovative approach of the last forty years.” says Ricardo Guadalupe CEO, HUBLOT

Crafted in a 45mm case, the new Classic Fusion models features 40 years of exploration and innovation. It houses a black lacquered and polished dial that is decorated with faceted hands, an applique Hublot and H logo. Classic and elegant, the timepiece includes the famous screws o the bezel and a sapphire crystal caseback.

What makes this such an innovative timepiece is the machine working within. Unlike the original which was powered by a quartz movement, the 2020 Hublot Classic Original features the HUB1112 automatic movement working within. This particular movement is based on the SW300-1 and is finished by Hublot and clocks in a power reserve of 42 hours. Sitting on a timeless easily adjustable rubber strap with a triple deployant clasp, the new edition offers a comfortable fit on the wrist.

The 2020 Hublot Classic Fusion 40 Years Anniversary is available in three versions -18k yellow gold, titanium and black ceramic. The models are limited to just 100 pieces in yellow gold and 200 in titanium and black ceramic.
