Hublot Classic Fusion Chronograph Berluti
The new Classic Fusion Chronograph Berluti fuses Hublot's creative watchmaking with the innovative patina of Berluti leathers.
Founded in France in 1895 by Italian Alessandro Berluti, the Parisian House now dresses men from head to foot and their footwear captivates the most elegant men by its patinated leathers.nezia patiné.
In 2016, Hublot released its first innovation: the Classic Fusion Berluti line. In honour of Berluti's 120th anniversary these pieces employed Berluti's famous Venezia leather for both its strap and its dial. Developed by Olga Berluti, a proud descendent of Alessandro, this exclusive tanning technique needed to be developed into a delicate and complex process before it could be used to craft a watch. For example, all of the moisture had to be removed from the leather before it could be enclosed within the sapphire crystal.
This year, Hublot has decided to take its use of Berluti's signature leather even further, combining this natural material with its Classic Fusion chronograph. Evidently a more complex task, as the dial features two counters at 3 o'clock and 9 o'clock, craftsmen had to go back to the drawing board and develop new practices to ensure the leather could be made stable despite these new additions.

From the outset, Hublot has embodied design and innovation that differ markedly from the established watchmaking order. With the impetus provided by Jean-Claude Biver, by 2004 these values had already become the basis of a new DNA, leading the brand to develop particularly audacious timepieces – most of them with a highly-developed sporting aspect.Find out more
