The new limited edition model is designed in collaboration with the visionary graffiti and street artist and former New Yorker, Tristan Eaton. The Classic Fusion Aerofusion Chronograph Concrete Jungle represents the brand’s latest work with novel and alternative materials.
The bezel is made of concrete, or more specifically, concrete mixed with epoxy resin to increase the robustness of the material. The name “concrete jungle” is a reference to New York City.
On the back of the new model, a pattern illustrating the Statue of Liberty designed by Tristan Eaton is printed on the sapphire case back, while the artist’s emblem is on the sub-dial located at three o’clock.
The rest of the watch shares some details with the standard Classic Fusion Aerofusion Chronograph model, with a 45mm case in black ceramic, equipped with the HUB1155 movement; a Sellita SW300 based automatic movement with a chronograph module.
The Classic Fusion Aerofusion Chronograph Concrete Jungle (ref. 525.CI.0117.NR.NYC16) is available only at Hublot’s New York boutiques on Madison Avenue and Fifth Avenue with a MSRP of $19,500 USD.
