Hublot captures the magic of a timeless place
June 12th in Cap d’Antibes (France) – Hublot and Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc have come together to create a limited edition of fifty Classic Fusion Aerofusion Chronograph Eden Roc watches.
Published on 14 June 2018
A unique creation, evoking so many memories, combining tradition and innovation.
An unprecedented collaboration between luxury watchmaking and exceptional hospitality.
With the Classic Fusion Aerofusion Chronograph Eden-Roc, Hublot joins the prestigious Eden Being collection, with its exclusive and bespoke pieces.
Inspired by the art of fusion, bringing together several natural elements, Hublot combines two new worlds: luxury watchmaking and exceptional hospitality.
A wonderful homage to a legendary place where artists, writers, film stars, royalty and other distinguished figures have all been inspired over time.
“At Hublot, we like to create a fusion between different worlds to develop singular products. The Hotel du Cap- Eden-Roc is one of those mythical places whose very name is enough to instantly conjure up dreams and memories. Today, these moments are enshrined in time with a Hublot watch.”
Ricardo Guadalupe, CEO of Hublot
In its black ceramic dinner jacket, polished and glossy, the Classic Fusion Aerofusion Chronograph Eden-Roc has a laid-back look.
The markers, hands and hour counter are all in elegant shades of blue, inspired by the Mediterranean Sea.
It is worn on the wrist with a strap in aged blue leather or perforated black calfskin with blue topstitching.
The second counter at 3 o’clock is inspired by the iconic buoy of Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc, the very buoy which looks out over the seawater pool hewn into the rock, with its blue tone, merging with the colour of the sea, which inspired the watch’s various shades.
The HUB1155 self-winding skeleton chronograph movement has a power reserve of forty two hours.
“Elegance, Luxury, Tradition and Innovation are the central themes of our joint initiative with the House of Hublot, enabling the creation of a unique and timeless product.”
Philippe Perd, General Manager and Chief Project Development Officer, Oetker Collection
The Classic Fusion Aerofusion Chronograph Eden-Roc watch is a limited edition. Just fifty numbered models, presented in a varnished mahogany case: an exquisite rendering of the hotel’s pier, stretching out into the infinite blue of the Mediterranean Sea, dotted with boats moored in the bay.
