This special edition Hublot watch created in tribute to Capri celebrates the breathtaking crystalline beauty of the Blue Grotto, the breathtaking sea cave on the coast of the island of Capri, southern Italy.
The new Classic Fusion Chronograph Special Edition Capri features the bright blue colour of the waters that sparkle in the depths of the cave, which is called Grotta Azzurra in local language. Hublot has created a special edition of just 30 numbered pieces, available exclusively in the boutique on the island.
The Hublot boutique in Capri was opened in 2017. This is the third Hublot timepiece exclusively created for the Capri Boutique. Previous models are the Classic Fusion Aerofusion Chronograph Capri Boutique limited edition (2018) and the Classic Fusion Chronograph Capri limited edition with blue ceramic case (2019).
The design of the Classic Fusion Chronograph Special Edition Capri was inspired by the striking aesthetic of the Blue Grotto, where breathtakingly beautiful contrasts are created as light is refracted by the crystal-clear waters onto the rocky walls of the cave.
The 45-mm case is made of polished black ceramic with a satin finish, surrounded by a bezel which is machined from ceramic in a vivid turquoise blue. The same wave of blue is seen lapping around the striated rubber strap and brings the dial of the chronograph to life with its chiaroscuro effect.
This timepiece contains the HUB1143 self-winding chronograph movement with a power reserve of 42 hours.
The summery feel and contemporary design of this unisex model is perfect for the longest, hottest days of the year, especially as it features ceramic: a lightweight, hypoallergenic material which warms to body temperature.
