Hublot and Berluti are working together as modern-day artists to create a watch with unmatchable character and an in-depth soul. This fusion of expertise sets the tone for the Classic Fusion Berluti, a limited two-model-edition timepiece with a bold, distinctive style and appeal.
In celebration of the Parisian shoemaker’s 120th birthday in 2015, the brand adorned the piece with an array of straps and dials for the fusion model. The artful combination of the watch and shoes exemplify elegance, defining the spirit and taste of the classic gentleman.
The straps of the 250-piece limited edition Classic Fusion Berluti Scritto have been expertly carved from Venezia Scritto calf leather with writing inspired by 18th-century calligraphy. The artist, Olga Berluti, has presented this homage to calligraphy engraved on the leather. Meanwhile, the tobacco-hued hide that also gilds the dial strikes that perfect poise with warm nuances of Hublot’s King Gold.
Similarly, the 500-piece Classic Fusion Berluti All Black, in its eminent monochrome, jet-black style has a nero grigio Venezia handmade strap inspired by the art of scarification and marked with the signature incision of the Berluti house. The 45mm black ceramic case contains a HUB1100 mechanical self-winding movement with a leather dial signed by Berluti.
