Hublot never sits still, and while Baselworld is the usual epicenter of the brand to introduce new watches, they don’t let that limit their sense of innovation. Also this week in Geneva Hublot introduced some watches that pay once again tribute to the “Art of Fusion”, expanding existing collections in extraordinary ways!

At its introduction, the Meca-10 made quite an impact with its two parallel barrels and its double power reserve display. It is one of the brand’s more innovative, technical watches—facets on which Hublot founded its reputation. The collection is expanding with a version of the watch case crafted from forged blue ceramic. Combined with a blue skeleton movement, the result is a highly technical watch that remains pleasantly casual.

Hublot renewed its partnership with the World Poker Tour in 2014 and to celebrate this occasion, it has captured the excitement that comes with playing poker at the highest level with the Big Bang Unico World Poker Tour Limited Edition. The watch is crafted from 45mm black ceramic, with its bezel featuring images of clubs, diamonds, hearts, and spades, while the dial itself has the number “8” set with diamonds, paying tribute to the Chinese tradition of luck and prosperity. Limited to only 188 pieces, the Unico chronograph also allows its owner to keep track of game time.

When Hublot first joined forces with Ferrari in 2012, it did so with the Big Bang Ferrari in Magic Gold. The material is fitting for the watch, because while it is very precious—just like a Ferrari—it is also a high-performance, scratch-proof material. In a complex and patented process, Hublot combines 24-karat gold with boron carbide, resulting in the only 18-karat gold that can withstand markings from any material—even a diamond. The revamped Big Bang Ferrari collection, which was introduced last year, will now include a model in Magic Gold.

Hublot is also expanding its highly successful Italia Independent collection. This time, Italia Independent founder Lapo Elkann went back into the archives of extraordinary Italian tailoring and selected three fabrics inspired by the ‘60s and ‘70s. Hublot used them to craft the dials and straps of three new Classic Fusion Chronographs, which will join the Italia Independent collection. Just like the previous models, these three additions highlight that recognizable Italian flair, yet with a slightly sporty edge, thanks to the chronograph complication.
