Quality and attention to detail are fundamental principles in both watchmaking and fine leather goods; so it is no surprise that a timepiece containing large helpings of the best both industries have to offer is absolutely exquisite.
The Hublot Classic Fusion Berluti is available in three versions. The Blue features, as the name already indicates, a blue leather Berluti dial, combined with a strap made from patinated Venezia leather with Gaspard decor.
Leather is a standard material in watchmaking, but Hublot wanted to go beyond the traditional approach and work with the most emblematic leather there is which is Italian brand Berluti’s iconic Venezia. The result of a collaboration between the two legendary labels

Berluti is a show brand. They believe “you cannot be elegant if you are not comfortable and well shod.” Founded in 1895 and helmed by Mr Kris Van Assche, the house began with bespoke footwear but today offers accessories and ready-to-wear that mix classic craftsmanship with contemporary sensibility
A scion of the Italian Binda Group dynasty, best known for making Breil watches, Carlo Crocco left the company in 1976 to strike out on his own and create a new watch company. Moving to Switzerland he formed MDM Geneve and set about designing a watch that he named the Hublot after the French word for “porthole”
