Hublot Classic Fusion Watches on LSMwatch.com
The Hublot Classic Fusion watch is an evolution of the Big Bang series which revolutionized the brand upon its release in 2004. The Classic Fusion watch features the same technical audacity as the Big Bang collection with a more classical, attractive aesthetic combining traditional watchmaking values with contemporary cutting edge methods. The Classic Fusion debuted in 2010 taking the core of the concept for the Big Bang watch and simplifying it, stripping the watch down to its essential functions with a thin profile. The Classic Fusion watch features a porthole design of the case, and the strong hands and hour markers which made the Big Bang so famous. The cases of the watch come in either steel or 18K white gold, yellow gold, or rose gold, and the bezel are set in ceramic several different versions available such as a brushed tip and polished sides on the black or white carbon fiber dial, or a matte black dial having matching 18K white gold, yellow gold, or rose gold, steel, black ceramic or titanium bezels. More elaborate versions of the Classic Fusion watch feature diamonds set in the 18K white gold, yellow gold, or rose gold bezel and lugs of the watch creating an interesting juxtaposition between the bezel and the black dial of the watch. Black Rubber or black leather straps of the watch with thin vertical lines are reminiscent of the first Big Bang watches that came out less than a decade prior but Hublot has moved their watch designs forward in so many new and unexpected directions since, with the plethora of Big Bang watches preceding the Classic Fusion watch, that it seems much farther removed. The black dial of the watch showcases 18K white gold rose gold, or yellow gold Roman Numerals and a small date function at the 3 o'clock hour marker on the black dial of watches. The sapphire crystal caseback reflects the functioning of the watch. The Classic Fusion watch is powered with mechanical chronograph movement HUB1112 with automatic winding.The Classic Fusion watch comes in a 42mm and 44 mm size as the black matte dial a bit larger in the stainless steel case while the black dial is a bit smaller in the 18K white gold, rose gold or yellow gold case of the watch. Hublot has also introduced a black or white carbon fiber dial option to the Classic Fusion watch recently, as well as a black ceramic and a titanium version of the watch. Being quite thin, the watches are very comfortable and easy to adjust with the black leather, or black rubber strap. Hublot considers the Big Bang series of watches to be a fusion of materials brought together to create the watch. Therefore, the idea of the Classic Fusion watch was meant to pay tribute to the original design of the Big Bang watch. The Classic Fusion watch has gone on to be able to stand for itself in the illustrious lineage of the Hublot watch making tradition.
