As a tribute to the city of New York, Hublot has created a new, limited edition Concrete Jungle watch from its Classic Fusion collection. Developed in an even more robust material, this new timepiece is reinforced in a fine concrete with minute detailing that evoke the city’s edges and structure.
The 2nd iteration of Hublot’s Concrete Jungle watch is fortified with a more durable concrete material, staying true to the brand’s Art of Fusion principle to promote groundbreaking innovation. The concrete material is composed of 65-75% fine cement, 25-30% epoxy resin replacing water in standard concrete, and 5-10% fiberglass replacing steel to reinforce the concrete.
Hublot’s Nyon design team upgraded the epoxy resin with an anti-UV additive to prevent color change over time and applied an anti-graffiti treatment on the finished components to prevent the concrete from becoming impregnated with other contaminants like dirt.
The concrete encases the HUB1143 Manufacture self-winding chronograph movement with a water resistance of 50 meters and power reserve of 42 hours. Outfitted with black ceramic pushers and crown, and an all-black textile strap with black stitching, the contrast highlights the fine details on the concrete dial.
Limited to 50 pieces, the Classic Fusion Concrete Jungle New York will initially be available exclusively at Hublot’s Fifth Avenue flagship boutique and on Hublot.com before becoming available in Hublot boutiques nationwide.
The recommended retail price is 18,800.00 USD.
