Since the start of their collaboration in 2011, Hublot and Ferrari have always created watches with a unique design and motorization, and their latest watch, the Classic Fusion Ferrari GT, is no exception. Drawing inspiration from Gran Turismo Ferrari’s (hence the “GT”), the watch features an extremely innovative design that integrates a new UNICO manufacture movement in a body with distinctive and dynamic lines.
The famous UNICO manufacture movement has been integrated into a 45mm case. Protected by four patents, this self-winding flyback chronograph movement, with 4 Hz frequency and a column wheel that can be seen from the dial side, has technical specifications that are fit for a champion with, in particular, a thickness of only 6.75 mm and 3-day power reserve that is very useful for day-to-day life.
Hublot’s Classic Fusion Ferrari GT is a watch for lovers of fine mechanical pieces who want to display a contemporary and refined style. The dial is transparent thanks to the use of sapphire crystal and reveals the high-precision mechanics of the UNICO HUB1280 caliber, with the famous Prancing Horse appearing at 12 o’clock. Each and every detail has been subjected to meticulous finishing touches like the red thread around the sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating, a stylistic reference to the legendary Ferrari color.
The straps of the Classic Fusion Ferrari GT watch have been subtly created in black rubber and dressed in Schedoni leather, like the seats of the Maranello historical race cars. Round like a racing tachometer, the new Classic Fusion Ferrari GT is a piece for our time, with particular attention paid to the ergonomics and a thickness of only 13.15 mm, a rarity for an integrated flyback chronograph. This innovatively designed, airy watch of rare elegance opens a major new chapter in the partnership of excellence between Hublot and Ferrari.
Just like the cars, the Classic Fusion Ferrari GT will be hard to get, as only a certain number of watches are being produced, in three different cases: Titanium (limited to 1,000 pieces), King Gold (limited to 500 pieces) and 3D Carbon (limited to 500 pieces).
