HUBLOT unveils Classic Fusion Tourbillon Vitrail, an exceptional timepiece inspired by the Art Deco era coloured stained glass windows. By introducing this colourful yet classic timepiece, Hublot connects the past with the future and connects respect for tradition with a 21st-century creative vision. Here, a first in watchmaking a colourful stained-glass window is miniaturised in a skeleton watch.
The HUBLOT Classic Fusion Tourbillon Vitrail features a HUB6017 movement made by the Manufacture, a skeleton tourbillon comprising 251 components, a 5-day power reserve and a contemporary graphic design; there are no fewer than 15 small spaces – 15 tiny openings housing a sliver of glass secured with O-rings which grip the glass, ensuring that it does not break through heat expansion. Technically, this is a very high-tech glass which is used in physics to filter the different frequencies or colours of light.
It is Swiss Made, and this special quality guarantees exceptional stability and durability. It is precision laser-cut to the nearest micron, and its shades of colour will not fade over time. The interplay of colours and shades is thus almost infinite.
The first 4 references in this collection will be available in red or blue tones. This technology already offers 10 colours of translucent glass, and several shades are possible for each colour making the way for thousands of possible colour combinations, potentially guaranteeing each customer a unique watch.
With this unique concept, patented by Hublot, there is an endless range of possibilities to create a different watch, which today plays on its highly colourful translucency.
