Hublot Cements Its Roots With Latest Classic Fusion

The Swiss marque’s concrete watch celebrates its US ties.

Yes, Hublot is a Swiss manufacture. However, the esteemed watchmaker holds strong ties to the United States, especially New York City.

To honour the city, Hublot has created a limited-edition Classic Fusion named Concrete Jungle.

Four years on from Hublot’s first watch that incorporated concrete – having previously released a timepiece with a concrete bezel – its latest 45mm offering takes the concept a step further, now boasting a fully concrete composite construction including its case, bezel and dial.

The material is composed of 65-75 per cent fine cement mixed with 25-30 per cent epoxy resin, which replaces water in the standard concrete formula, along with 5-10 per cent fibreglass, in lieu of reinforcing steel.

The minimalistic nature of the concrete dial sees voids used instead of indexes while the black ceramic caseback and the textile strap makes for a comfortable, functional wear.

Beyond the technical mastery of the concrete construction, the watch offers 50-metre of water resistance and is powered by Hublot’s HUB1143 calibre. Here, the self-winding chronograph calibre is mated to black ceramic pushers and crown for easy operation.

Limited to 50 pieces, the Hublot Classic Fusion Concrete Jungle New York is priced at approx. $25,490.
