CLASSIC FUSION FERRARI GT
Baselworld 2019 was once again a great fair / gathering to discover fantastic novelties. On this one, i’m obviously talking HUBLOT & FERRARI. The partnership started in 2011 and gave birth to incredible Timepieces! In my opinion, the most iconic is the «LAFERRARI» which i had the privilege to have my hands-on but anyway, now it’s time to break down this superb Classic Fusion Ferrari GT.
The general theme (or exercise) here was to incorporate as much as possible, the « Gran Turismo » spirit in the creation. By that i mean, the idea of high performance & elegance. It clearly helps to understand first, why the case is round and also why the movement is a Unico Manufacture chronograph which also offers a Flyback fonction.
At 9 o’clock, you’ll find a small seconds counter and at 3 the chronograph one with a date window. Two red hands (central + side) to make the Flyback chronograph fonction quickly readable and finally, central Hour & Minutes (Super-luminova) hands.
The open back gives you a lot of visibility on the movement. The rotor (in its wheel rim shape) plays a big role aesthetically and mechanically. I love the attention to details that both Maison put in the product. The complexity of the case is also revealed on the back. Those circular apertures were for sure an important subject during the design brief and i’m glad they’re present in the final/saleable piece.
The overall quality of the Classic Fusion Ferrari GT is truly amazing! Every year, Hublot surprises me… They manage to push enough the teams to make at least two novelties look like « Futuristic » wrist machine.
Grand Bravo! HUBLOT.
