Hublot Classic Fusion Aerofusion Chronograph RED

Hublot launched its latest demonstration of perfect fusion with the unveiling of the Classic Fusion Chronograph Aerofusion RED, created with specialist luxury retailer The Watch Gallery. To mark the occasion of the latest celebrated collaboration in the successful creative partnership, the invincible haute horology duo revealed a new 45mm timepiece at a cocktail event held at the very stylish rooftop venue Aqua Kyoto, on London’s landmark Regent’s Street.

Hublot had the privilege of collaborating with The Watch Gallery on 3 limited edition series launched in the past three years, all of which were met with tremendous commercial and advertorial success. Previous editions had harnessed a fusion of titanium and ceramic with touches of blue, but in true innovative style, the new edition pushes the envelope with bold and daring red accents.
