Hublot, a name synonymous with luxury and innovation in the watchmaking world, has recently added a dazzling new member to its High Jewellery collection – the Classic Fusion High Jewellery 42mm in white gold, meticulously set with baguette-cut diamonds. This exquisite timepiece fits seamlessly into the brand’s prestigious High Jewellery lineup, joining the ranks of iconic models like the Big Bang, Spirit of Big Bang, and Square Bang Unico.
A Celebration of Iconic Design and Masterful Gem-Setting
The Classic Fusion High Jewellery 42mm is a testament to Hublot’s commitment to combining iconic design with remarkable gem-setting techniques. Adorned with sleek lines of white gold and embellished with baguette-cut diamonds, this Classic Fusion has rightfully earned its status as a Hublot icon, symbolizing an exceptional accolade for a timeless watch.
Embracing the highest form of sophistication through simplicity, Hublot revisits its roots, going back to the very shape that epitomized its creation in 1980. This return to the basics results in an acclaimed expression of high jewellery, accentuating the timeless purity of the Classic Fusion model. The watch is nothing short of stunning, a dazzling display of craftsmanship and elegance.
The new Classic Fusion High Jewellery 2023 comes to life with an astounding 431 baguette-cut diamonds, totaling around 14.6 carats. These gemstones gracefully adorn the watch’s case, bezel, dial, and clasp, with the dial alone featuring 241 baguette-cut diamonds set over 120 hours of meticulous work. This equates to almost three weeks of full-time dedication. Following this, the bezel was embellished with 60 additional diamonds, further elevating its elegance.
Technical Excellence and Aesthetic Splendor
The 42mm case of this masterpiece is set with 94 baguette-cut diamonds and houses the HUB1710 calibre.
This calibre is visible through the sapphire glass on the back of the watch, showcasing the self-winding movement that oscillates at a frequency of 4 Hz (28,800 alterations per hour) and offers a power reserve of 50 hours.
In keeping with Hublot’s commitment to perfection, even the smallest details are exquisitely crafted. The black rubber-lined alligator strap features a deployment buckle adorned with 36 baguette-cut diamonds, blending comfort with luxury.
A Fusion of Watchmaking Excellence and Jewellery Artisanship
It takes over 200 hours to set all 431 diamonds that grace this exceptional piece, a true representation of Hublot’s fusion of watchmaking excellence and jewellery artisanship.
