Hublot honours famous Italian beauty spot with new chronograph

Classic Fusion Capri

Hublot has released the new Classic Fusion Chronograph Special Edition Capri, dedicated to the beauty of Italy’s famed Blue Grotto.

Grotta Azzurra, or the ‘Blue Grotto’, is a sea cave found on the southern Italian island of Capri. The watch’s bright blue hue reflects the colour found in the cave’s waters.

The timepiece is limited to a small run of just 30 numbered items, and is only available in the Hublot boutique on the island.

The 45-mm case is made of polished black ceramic with a satin finish, surrounded by a bezel which is machined from ceramic in turquoise-blue. The same colour is seen around the striated rubber strap.

 

This timepiece contains the HUB1143 self-winding chronograph movement with a power reserve of 42 hours.

Ricardo Guadalupe, Hublot CEO, said: “Symbolising ‘la dolce vita’ [‘the good life’], Capri is dotted with secret coves, sunny lanes to be discovered, clifftop flower gardens and balconies lined with pine, lemon and olive trees.

“Boasting dizzying views over the sumptuous Bay of Naples, the pearl of Southern Italy is a veritable treasure trove which inspired Hublot to set up its boutique there in 2017. We think it deserves to be celebrated again.”
