One of the most active watchmakers at the charitable events, Hublot, this time participates at the huge event called Only Watch in order to describe the true nature of this auction. The most renowned watchmakers created one-of-a-kind watches for the special auction to benefit the Monegasque Association against Muscular Dystrophy. Hublot’s unique timepiece for the fifth edition of the Only Watch is a fabulous Classic Fusion Red’n’Black Ceramic Skeleton Tourbillon. In honor to the red of Monaco where the event will take place, the renowned Swiss watchmaker developed the brightly colored ceramic for the first time.
After months of research within the R&D Department and the brand’s foundry in Switzerland, Hublot found a unique recipe for creating bright red ceramic from which they later crafted a bezel for their one-of-a-kind Classic Fusion watch. A case is executed in polished and satin-finished black ceramic. It has the characteristic design of its collection and pretty robust diameter of 45 mm. In the middle of this ceramic frame, there is a completely skeletonized tourbillon mechanism which presents an extraordinary contemporary design. Entirely created in-house, this high-end movement comprises 155 components, including 19 jewels. It is a manually-winding mechanism with the remarkable power-reserve of up to 5 days. The part of the mechanism with the tourbillon cage is marked by a little anodized red aluminum ring, applied on anti-reflective sapphire crystal. It also features polished, black coated indexes which, as well as polished, black coated hands, are covered with luminescent white material for high readability.
The bezel lug is made of black composite resin, while the crown with the Hublot logo comes in polished black ceramic. The case-back is also covered with sapphire crystal with interior anti-reflective treatment. The touch of refinement comes with a black alligator strap which is stitched with red thread, matching the red bezel. Of course, this leather strap is just the upper part of an extremely comfortable black rubber strap, which is one of the brand’s signatures.
