Smoking hot: Hublot unveils its new Classic Fusion ForbiddenX watches

Classic Fusion "ForbiddenX"

Hublot started its partnership with the famous cigar maker Arturo Fuente two years ago. The King Power Arturo Fuente chronograph was the first shared timepiece. Now four different Hublot Classic Fusion ForbiddenX models will follow…

Hublot CEO Ricardo Guadaloupe told me: “Arturo Fuente ForbiddenX watches feature real tobacco leaves in their dial, the same leaves as those used to create the prestigious ForbiddenX cigar. These leaves were sent from the Fuente Estate in Santo Domingo to the Hublot Manufacture in Nyon/Switzerland so that the engineers could insert them in the dials via a high-tech process where epoxy resin is used to make them stable and rigid.

Measuring 45 mm in diameter the Classic Fusion Arturo Fuente ForbiddenX are designed in a shade of brown which works in perfect harmony with the colour of the tobacco leaves in the dials.

With a brown ceramic bezel, they are available in a choice of four different versions:

 

A titanium version (521.NC.0589.VR.OPX14 Titanium/Brown ceramic – Limited edition of 250 pieces) :

A King Gold version (521.OC.0589.VR.OPX14 (King Gold/Brown ceramic – Limited edition of 150 pieces) made out of Hublot’s red gold which contains 5% platinum, giving it an intense red color and making it an even more precious metal:

A tone-on-tone tobacco-coloured calfskin strap complements the Classic Fusion ForbiddenX, featuring the Arturo Fuente ForbiddenX symbol. The watches are delivered in a veritable wooden humidor-cigar-box, developed by Hublot to regulate the humidity and ensure the cigars are stored in perfect condition.

  • Every day Hublot is bringing out a new limited edition watch that is heavy overpriced, the only different is the colour everything are the same as standard Hublot watch. Hublot is using this strategy to get attention , may bring out a limited edition for a Christmas watch that will be all in Red.

    I will suggest Hublot open up a tailor made Hublot boutique where you can chooce your own colours for your watch like a taylor made suite you can get made cheap in South East Asia,

    It will soon be thousands of Hublot watches with different colours that will be worth nothing, Hublot is like a fashion like in cloth, I have two reverso watches that will never go out of fashion.

    I wouldn’t be joining Hublot exclusive fashion club,

  • Hublot will make a watch for just about anyone now. This is getting really silly and shows lack of creativity.
