The Manual Wind: Hublot Classic Fusion

manual wind classic fusion 830ba0af prod
Just like automobiles, names of watch models can be quite profound.  Extreme World, El Toro, Deep Sea Sea Dweller and of course Big Bang King Power to name a few.  One watch which is a cousin to the aforementioned Big Bang is the Hublot Classic Fusion.  As nondescript a watch name as Big Bang is as perfect a description for the Classic Fusion.  This entry level timepiece from Hublot might be one of the most classic and versatile timepieces on the market today.

This successor to the original Hublots keeps some of the basic design elements from previous models and updates them for todays consumer.  A case with both matte and high polish finishes takes on the straight lugs and bezel screws of Hublots past, while offering a more modern look.  This piece is offered with multiple configurations which include black and white matte dials, as well as carbon fiber dials and ceramic bezels.  Under the dial lies a strong yet thin automatic movement which helps this piece stay under a cuff when at the office.  Case materials include Titanium, rose gold, and ceramic.  The versatility of this model is exemplified in its 45mm diameter piece; large enough for a sporty presence yet still maintaining that streamlined classic look for the office.  Wear it on a rubber strap or Hublot’s Gummy Crocodile strap which inlays crocodile on rubber for a dressier look with added comfort.
