Hublot and Ferrari have been creating watches with unique designs and mobility. Each new version introduces a new style.
Hublot has launched an elegant and modern piece inspired by the “Gran Turismo” universe. Launch of the classic fusion Ferrari GT watch, its highly innovative design combines UNICO’s newly manufactured movement with unique and dynamic lines, opening up a new chapter in the cooperation between Hublot and Ferrari.
The long-term cooperation between Hublot and Ferrari is a continuous creative inspiration based on the common values of these two prestigious houses. In Ferrari (Big Bang) Ferrari, MP-05 LaFerrari and Techframe, the unstoppable innovation power of Ferrari and Hublot continues to innovate and improve. This cooperation draws inspiration from the racing world and Formula One for the first time, and launched the Big Bang Ferrari version.
In 2017, Hublot and Ferrari expanded into the GT field with the Techframe Ferrari Tourbillon Chronograph, which was created especially to celebrate the 70th anniversary of Ferrari. This year’s cooperation has taken a step in this world, which has always defined a travel philosophy that combines tradition, elegance and technical perfection.
“Comfortably and stylishly travel long distances at high speeds.” This is the meaning of the “Gran Turismo” spirit. The term also defines a limited-production, very high-performance luxury car. The GT world is one of the fields of innovation and perfection, full of passion for mechanical performance and innovation, and passion for elegance and beauty.
To pay tribute to the “Grand Touring” car, Hublot and Ferrari now integrate their aesthetic creativity and mechanical innovation into the Classic Fusion for the first time, which is a traditional and modern watchmaking chassis that meets the style requirements of the GT Universe.
Another initiative: the famous UNICO-manufactured movement has been integrated into the 45 mm diameter Classic Fusion chassis. This is Hublot’s second chronograph movement, launched in 2018 (HUB1280).
This self-winding flyback chronograph movement has obtained four patent protections. It has a 4 Hz frequency (28’800 A/h) and a column wheel that can be seen from the dial side. Its technical specifications are very suitable for special It is a 3-day power reserve with a thickness of only 6.75 mm, which is essential for daily life. The new Classic Fusion Ferrari GT has three different situations: Titanium, Golden King and 3D Carbon.
3D Carbon is a brand new product in the field of fine watchmaking. It is a polymer matrix composite (PMC) made of three-dimensional fibers. This high-tech material is very popular in motorsports, has excellent resistance, and in the case of classic fusion Ferrari GT, provides a light but strong protective layer for UNICO-manufactured movements.
The new classic Fusion Ferrari GT was designed by “Centro Stile Ferrari” and inspired by the GT designed and manufactured in the Maranello workshop. Its design is very modern. Hublot works on engines, and Ferrari works on bodywork. One of the main design features of the classic fusion Ferrari GT is the case, which is regarded as a true concentric suspension element that can enhance the appearance of the dial and the complex manufacturing process.
For this reason, “Centro Stile Ferrari” designers used their expertise to build a bridge between car design and watchmaking mechanization, thus proving that they love work and surpass other projects related to cars.
The Classic Fusion Ferrari GT is completely different from the Techframe launched in 2017, but it is absolutely complementary. It is a watch replica suitable for mechanical parts lovers who want to show modern and exquisite style. Due to the use of sapphire crystal, the dial is transparent and shows the high-precision movement of the UNICO HUB1280 movement, while the famous Prancing Horse appears at 12 o’clock. Every detail has been meticulously modified, such as the red line around the sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating, which is a style reference to the legendary Ferrari color.
The strap of the Classic Fusion Ferrari GT is cleverly made of black rubber and made of Schedoni leather, just like the seat of a historic Maranello race car. The new Classic Fusion Ferrari GT is like a racing tachometer, a work of our time, with special attention to ergonomics. Its thickness is only 13.15 mm, which is rare for integrated flyback chronographs. This innovatively designed rare elegant and airy fashion watch opens a new chapter in the superb partnership between Hublot and Ferrari.
