The first limited-edition timepiece to be released after Baselworld comes from Hublot and The Watch Gallery. The two brands have collaborated twice before and each time they have created successful watches that have captured the attention of horology fans around the world. Today they announced the release of their third piece, the Classic Fusion Chronograph Aerofusion.
The new Chronograph Aerofusion is surrounded by a satin-finished titanium case, black ceramic bezel and titanium crown. Beneath the sapphire glass lies the skeletal watch face faceted with rhodium-plated indexes and hands, and littered with 59 sparking rubies. Counter rings around the dial are lacquered in a bright blue as well as the second index around the 45mm watch face. On the back each watch will be engraved with “Special Edition, XX/25” denoting which number the watch is out of the 25-piece, limited-edition run. The strap is made of alligator leather and also comes with a complementary bright blue stitching.
Outfitted with Hublot’s iconic HUB1155 movement, the piece also comes with a 42-hour power reserve, 280 components and has a 5ATM rating—about 50 meters of water resistance. Only 25 pieces have been created and are available starting today at select Hublot and The Watch Gallery locations worldwide and online. Priced at £12,500 (approx. $18,531).
