Luxury Swiss watch manufacture Hublot launches its latest demonstration of perfect fusion with the unveiling of the Classic Fusion Chronograph Aerofusion RED, created with specialist luxury retailer The Watch Gallery.
To mark the occasion of the latest celebrated collaboration in the successful creative partnership, the invincible haute horology duo revealed the new 45mm timepiece at a cocktail event held at rooftop venue Aqua Kyoto, on London’s landmark Regent Street. Hublot had the privilege of collaborating with The Watch Gallery on 3 limited edition series launched in the past three years, all of which were met with tremendous commercial and advertorial success. Previous editions had harnessed a fusion of titanium and ceramic with touches of blue, but in true innovative style, the new edition pushes the envelope with bold and daring red accents.
Attended by 300 guests, journalists and customers of the brand, the event boasted a modern takeover of a highly renowned venue in the heart of the British capital. Jean-Claude Biver, Chairman of Hublot and President of LVMH Group Watch Division co-hosted the event with David Coleridge, Chairman of The Watch Gallery, they were also joined by Hublot brand ambassador Maxime Buchi, creative designer and leading international tattoo artist. Presenter and DJ Zara Martin provided the evening soundtrack over the spectacular views of central London.
The Classic Fusion is the most contemporary and understated of the Hublot collections, and is inspired by the brand’s first avant-garde designs initially launched by the company in 1980, when the brand was founded. Hublot pioneered the innovative use of gold with rubber, daringly fusing precious and industrial materials in iterations that disrupted the watch making conventions of its time.
