Swiss luxury watch brand Hublot reaffirms its Mexican ties by announcing the opening of its first boutique in Cancun, where it is unveiling a Classic Fusion “Maya”.
The Hublot Classic Fusion “Maya” is an exclusive numbered piece released as a series of just 25 pieces. A vibrant tribute to Mayan culture, this watch depicts its traditional calendar cycles. This extremely sophisticated system demonstrates the advancement of a civilisation whose roots stretch back to prehistoric times and that made significant progress benefiting humanity as a whole in the fields of writing, art, architecture, agriculture, mathematics and astronomy.
The same is also true of the Haab calendar. By splitting the year into cycles, it helped support the development of mathematics and astronomy. The circle of glyphs in the middle of the dial comprises the 19 months of the Haab. The first 18 months each have 20 days and are followed by a short final period of just 5 days to give a total of 365 days.
In the centre, the carried load depicts the last of these 20 days, ajaw, meaning “lord” or “rule”. It is one of the main glyphs used in Classic Maya art. In this context, the “day” carried represents the beginning of the entire calendar year, making the load bearer actually a ‘year bearer’.
The new timepiece occupies the 45 mm ceramic case of the Classic Fusion, which is the flagship model in the Mexican market. Entirely satin-finished and featuring red gold screws, it houses the MHUB1112 automatic movement, with a 42-hour power reserve. Its dial is adorned with 5N gold motifs of the Haab calendar against a satin-finished matt black background.
The Classic Fusion “Maya” comes with an Alcantara and black rubber strap with a deployant buckle.
