Hublot - Classic Fusion Ferrari GT

Hublot Classic Fusion Ferrari GT

The new timepiece developped in collaboration with Ferrari is an elegant and contemporary piece that draws its inspiration from the “Gran Turismo” universe.

The long-term collaboration between Hublot and Ferrari, launched in 2011, is an endless source of creative inspiration that builds on the common values these two prestigious houses share. The collaboration first drew inspiration from the racing world and Formula 1, with the Big Bang Ferrari editions. In 2017, Hublot and Ferrari expanded to the universe and spirit of Gran Turismo - “driving over long distances at high speed in comfort and with style” - with the Techframe Ferrari Tourbillon Chronograph specifically created to celebrate the 70th anniversary of Ferrari. This year the collaboration goes a step further in this world, which has always defined a travel philosophy that combines tradition, elegance and technical perfection.

To pay homage to the “Grand Touring” cars, Hublot and Ferrari have now combined for the first time their sense of aesthetic creativity and mechanical innovation in a Classic Fusion, a watchmaking chassis that is both traditional and modern, in line with the stylistic codes of the GT universe.

The new Classic Fusion Ferrari GT is available in three different cases: Titanium (limited edition of 1,000 pieces), King Gold (500 pieces) and 3D Carbon (500 pieces). 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.

Another first: the  UNICO manufacture movement HUB1280 has been integrated into a 45-mm-diameter Classic Fusion case. Protected by four patents, this self-winding flyback chronograph movement, with 4 Hz frequency (28'800 A/h) and a column wheel that can be seen from the dial side, is only 6.75 mm thick and offers a 3-day power reserve.

All-new in the Fine Watchmaking world, 3D Carbon is a polymer matrix composite (PMC) made of three-dimensional fibres. This high-tech material, which is very popular in motorsport, has outstanding qualities of resistance and, in the case of the Classic Fusion Ferrari GT, offers a lightweight but solid layer of protection, to the UNICO manufacture movement. Designed by the “Centro Stile Ferrari”, the new Classic Fusion Ferrari GT draws inspiration from the GT designed and crafted in the Maranello workshops. Its design is very contemporary; Hublot worked on the motor and Ferrari on the body.

One of the main design features of the Classic Fusion Ferrari GT is the case, conceived as a true concentrical suspended element that enhances the dial presence and the sophisticated manufacturing making process. For this purpose, the “Centro Stile Ferrari” designers applied their expertise, building bridges between automotive design and watchmaking motorisation.

Entirely different yet resolutely complementary to the Techframe launched in 2017, the 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 calibre, 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. The straps have been created in black rubber and dressed in Schedoni leather, like the seats of the Maranello historical race cars.

The brand

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, which is currently headed by Ricardo Guadalupe - its CEO since 2012, to develop particularly audacious timepieces – most of them with a highly-developed sporting aspect.
