Luxury department store Harrods has partnered with Hublot to create a new special edition watch.
The Classic Fusion Blue 45mm Special Edition ‘Harrods’ watch will be exclusively available through the Knightsbridge retailer.
The three-hand date watch is crafted from contrasting polished and satin-finished titanium using the angular case and round bezel design of Hublot’s Classic Fusion model.
Bezel inlays on either side of the dial are made from blue composite resin fused with titanium and serve to give the design a unique, colourful highlight. The blue theme is continued with a blue sun ray polished dial and the two blue straps supplied with the watch, one rubber and the other rubber-lined alligator.
This automatic ‘Harrods’ special edition also departs from the Classic Fusion norm of baton hour markers by using Arabic numerals in a playful font for every other hour marker.
Jason Broderick, director of fine watches at Harrods, said: “It’s with great enthusiasm that we’ve partnered with Hublot, which has become an iconic brand in its own right. Not only is the new watch beautifully made, it’s also full of the character and confidence that have made Hublot so universally successful. We’ve no doubt that in time this first special edition made by our two brands will become an iconic, highly collectible piece in its own right.”
Just 50 pieces of the Hublot Classic Fusion 45mm Special Edition ‘Harrods’ will be made, priced at £6,900.
