This timepiece marks the start of a brand new collaboration between Garage Italia and Hublot as the first of a three-part concept entitled “Sky, Earth, Sea”.
Enthusiasts will recognise the idiosyncratic style of Lapo Elkann and the innovative approach of the Haute Horlogerie brand, fused with in a diameter of 45 mm. This collector’s timepiece will be available from May 2019 in a limited edition of just 100 pieces.
Hublot and the Italian design team have completely revamped the chronograph movement, adorning it with the signature symbols of the Milanese brand. Encircled by the first ever bezel in sky blue ceramic, the dial wraps the Italian logo in undulating shades of azure that recall the deep waters of far-flung archipelagos.
The ceramic case, decked out entirely in Garage Italia blue, complements the full rubber strap finely patterned with imaginary ocean waves.
