The Hublot Classic Fusion Bronze Bucherer Blue Editions watch is made in partnership with the luxury watch retailer Bucherer. It exhibits an elaborate bronze case design powered by a mechanical automatic movement. It also features a cool blue dial that showcases the brand’s innovation and tradition using fantastic materials and revolutionary techniques to create a handsome watch.
For Hublot, a respected watchmaker, the blue color showcases innovation and tradition as well as novelty and progress. We can clearly see the polarity of time in the new watch, such a fascinating combination of opposites resulted to a unique method that created the new timepiece for the Bucherer Blue Editions.
Speaking of polarity, the Classic Fusion collection speaks about the manufacturer’s vision to combine classic watchmaking, pioneering design and outstanding craftsmanship. These ideas power the making of the Bucherer Blue Editions model. Thus the Hublot watch for Bucherer speaks of the beautiful merging of opposites (mainly talking about design and engineering) and utilizing precious metals combined with industrial materials. Moreover, the Classic Fusion pays homage to the brand’s original designs in the 1980s.
Furthermore, for the first time, in the Classic Fusion Bronze Bucherer Blue Editions, Hublot has combined a bronze case with a black ceramic bezel and six H-shaped titanium screws. It looks definitely rough, a wild animal perhaps in the jungle of all classic handsome watches. Bronze and ceramic as you already know belong to different classes, and surprisingly, the kind of masculinity it achieves when combined is quite unique. The colors generated exude a bold statement. Then there is the blue satin-polished dial with a sunray finish adding more ruggedness to an already manly case build. Add the blue rubber strap combined with alligator leather and we get ourselves a very unique Hublot build.
This watch is definitely made for the modern wearer still hooked to the classics. The beautiful natural patina for example that is present in the Hublot’s distinctive bronze invokes memories with its subtle yellow and pink undertones. Over time this develops to individual character thus ensuring a very unique watch for each wearer.
Beneath the 45 mm case is a self-winding Chronograph movement, Hublot HUB1143. It has 280 components and beats at 4 Hz and capable of providing 42 hours of power reserve, not bad for a classic. It also features a date display which is seen on the cut index at 6 o’clock.
Finally, speaking more about the cool details of the watch, I like the black bezel toned down by polished titanium screws. The pushers in black ceramic are also toned down by a black brushed bronze crown with Hublot logo. Moving on to the microblasted black ceramic caseback, we see the “Special” + ”Edition” + ”XX/30” engraved. The build of the watch is top notch, not surprising for a new special edition that will only be available in selected Bucherer stores in the UK and in the online shop. Visit Hublot here.
