Hublot is further strengthening its links with the automotive industry and the exclusive world of classic cars! The luxury Swiss watch brand is especially proud to be the exclusive watchmaking partner of one of the most prestigious collectors’ car rallies in Europe: The Tour Auto Optic 2000.
To celebrate the first year of this partnership, Hublot presents the Classic Fusion Tour Auto Chrono, a limited edition of just 100 numbered watches.
Made from titanium – a lightweight, durable alloy resistant to corrosion – this sporty and elegant watch, which still respects traditional Haute horlogerie codes, is equipped with a HUB1143 selfwinding mechanical Chronograph movement with date comprising 280 components including 59 jewels, and oscillating at frequency of 28,600 vibrations/hour.
The opaline dial with navy blue and red vertical stripes features two black satin-finished sunburst counters, one on the left at 9 o’clock for the minutes and the other on the right at 3 o’clock for the seconds, titanium coloured baton indexes and a date window at 6 ‘clock. This is complemented with a white perforated calfskin strap sewn onto rubber with navy blue and red stitching detail, which provides it with exceptional flexibility and resistance. The watch is water resistant to 50 metres.
