The “Aero” concept made its first appearance in the Big Bang line in 2007, and given it’s immediate popularity, Hublot decided to introduce the airborne movement into the Classic Fusion line a few years later.
But when we discovered a unique, diamond-studded Classic Fusion Chronograph Aero Titanium model during a visit to the Hublot boutique in Beverly Hills [link], we just had to take a closer-look.
The new combination, which introduces a diamond-studded bezel on the Titanium watch, is a stunning addition to the collection, and should appeal to collectors who appreciate the added wow-factor in their timepieces.
There’s a lot to look at with this timepiece, which is exactly what’s it’s designed for. The graphically openworked dial showcases the beautifully intricate HUB 1155. This movement powers the Aero Chronograph function and boasts approximately 42 hours of power reserve. The timepiece features two counters at 3 o’clock (small second) and 9 o’clock (30-minute), and a date window at 6 o’clock.
Because of its elegant and rounded lines, the Classic Fusion Chronograph Aero Titanium does not feel as big as its 45mm diameter. And although made primarily from titanium, this model’s diamond bezel adds a bit of heft to the wrist, which is a nice reminder that what you’re wearing is something very special. It does feel very comfortable though, thanks to its alligator strap, which is stitched onto black rubber, ensuring it is flexible and exceptionally durable.
The Classic Fusion Chronograph Aero Titanium is available at Westime for $23,300. It is also available from the brand without diamonds, or in King Gold [Link], Hublot’s famous red gold, with added platinum.
