Hublot Classic Fusion Chronograph Berluti – Cold Brown (Titanium) and Cold Gold (Bronze)

For the fourth opus born from the partnership began in 2016, Berluti and Hublot have taken the Art of Fusion even further: the case features both the “Scritto” text and the patinated leather palette – iconic signatures of the luxury shoe brand. This model is available in titanium or bronze, paired with a Venezia Cold Brown or Cold Gold leather strap. This series will be exclusively available in Japan (Isetan, Hublot stores in Ginza, Osaka and Kyoto) and in the New York Hublot boutique from 19 June to 20 July 2019, and worldwide the next day.

Olga Berluti expertly developed this carefully studied process of applying essential oils and pigments which give the shoes their unique character, in order to defy time and the rules of colour. The “Scritto” – also one of the hallmarks of the luxury shoe brand – refers to an eighteenth-century French letter which Olga Berluti bought at auction.

Handwritten lines of text make their mark in this iconic collection, the expression of a labour of love crafted by hand. Encapsulating the Venezia leather – a natural material – in a water-resistant case was a feat in itself.

These two elegant hybrid timepieces are powered by the HUB1143 automatic chronograph movement and, from the strap to the dial; they showcase an infinite array of autumnal colours in all their contrasting shades. These timepieces are presented in a bespoke box containing a complete Berluti leather care set. Each version will be available in a limited edition of 200 pieces.
