Created in partnership with luxury watch retailer Bucherer, the Hublot Classic Fusion Bronze Bucherer BLUE EDITIONS timepiece features an elaborately designed bronze case and a mechanical automatic movement. Boasting a blue dial, this luxurious timepiece from the Bucherer BLUE EDITIONS skilfully blends innovation and tradition with an extraordinary combination of materials and revolutionary design to make a particularly strong masculine style statement.
The colour blue embodies innovation and tradition as well as modernity and dynamism for renowned watchmaker Hublot. This fascinating mix of opposites resulted in a truly unique approach to creating the new timepiece for the Bucherer BLUE EDITIONS.
The philosophy behind the Classic Fusion collection is the watch manufacturer’s vision to combine classic watchmaking, pioneering design and outstanding craftsmanship – a great source of inspiration for the new Bucherer BLUE EDITIONS model. The special edition Hublot has created for Bucherer celebrates this unique art of fusion and disruptive design featuring the combination of precious metals and industrial materials that Hublot pioneered with the Classic Fusion created as an homage to the brand’s original designs in the 1980s.
In the Classic Fusion Bronze Bucherer BLUE EDITIONS, Hublot for the first time combines a bronze case with a black ceramic bezel and six H-shaped titanium screws – an unsual and masculine blend of materials and colours that creates a bold style statement. The blue satin-polished dial with a sunray finish further emphasises the masculine design, and a blue rubber strap in combination with alligator leather adds the perfect finishing touches to this impressive creation.
This timepiece for the modern gentleman already features a beautiful natural patina, and Hublot’s distinctive bronze, with its subtle yellow and pink undertones, develops its individual character over time, ensuring every watch is a unique piece for its wearer.
The watch has a diameter of 45 mm and boasts a mechanical HUB1112 automatic movement with a 42-hour power reserve and a date display. The new special edition will be available exclusively in selected Bucherer stores in the UK and in online shop from 15 November 2018.

Its unique relations with the most distinguished brands in the industry are the fruit of many years of continuous collaboration, rooted in know-how, mutual respect and exceptional technical expertise.
