Hublot celebrates Ferrari partnership with new watch

The Classic Fusion Ferrari GT watch opens a new chapter in the partnership between Hublot and Ferrari.

The newly launched timepiece draws inspiration from the “Gran Turismo” universe and features an innovative design.

Since their collaboration was announced in 2011, Hublot and Ferrari have always created watches featuring unique designs and motorization.

Grand Turismo is all about “driving over long distances at high speed in comfort and with style” and this is the spirit that Hublot has tried to capture in the watch.

In a first, Hublot has integrated its UNICO manufacture movement into a 45mm diameter Classic Fusion case. It measures just 6.75mm thick and has a long three-day power reserve.

The new Classic Fusion Ferrari GT is available in three different cases: Titanium (limited edition of 1,000 pieces), King Gold (limited edition of 500 pieces) and 3D Carbon (limited edition of 500 pieces).
