Populare Replica Hublot Classic Fusion Ferrari GT Watch
Hublot introduced a completely new member of the Ferrari watch line with the Hublot Classic Fusion Ferrari GT. This is the second watch designed in cooperation with the Ferrari design department — which is crucial to note because most car/watch collaboration projects are, more or less, totally designed by the watch brand itself. The Classic Fusion Ferrari GT follows the 2017 Hublot Techframe Ferrari that has a case and dial that is created by the Ferrari design team directly. As far as I am concerned, this fact is important in positioning the collectability of such a watch, since it actually comes from Ferrari, as opposed to just having the prancing horse logo on it as borrowed from the notable Italian supercar maker.
The release of the fake Hublot Classic Fusion Ferrari GT was mired by two things that, to at least a small degree, overshadow what is a very elegant timepiece. In spite of the name of the watch, this is in no way a “Hublot Classic Fusion” case. The good news is that the first round of watches is comprised of all limited-edition pieces, so, moving forward, Hublot has a chance to come up with a more distinctive and appropriate name for the collection that doesn’t erroneously mix these new Ferrari GT watches with Hublot’s other Classic Fusion timepiece line.
That said, on the wrist, the 45mm-wide, 13.15mm-thick Classic Fusion Ferrari GT is very comfortable and well composed. What it lacks in overall design originality it makes up for in handsome looks that blend a more elegant spirit with the sporty personality that Hublot and Ferrari have in their own distinct ways. If anything, the Classic Fusion name was added to this product line since the Hublot Classic Fusion Ferrari GT is dressier than most other Hublot Ferrari products. Perhaps that is why Hublot and Ferrari wanted to combine it with the Gran Turismo (GT) lifestyle, which is more about long, cozy rides.
Available in three materials to begin, the Classic Fusion Ferrari GT case is a funny blend of elements that starts with a bigger monolithic case structure with a screw-secured bezel. This latter element is more on the rough, industrial side and arguably helps break up the smooth curviness of the rest of the case. The dial has some revolving Arabic numerals on it and a lot of visual depth.
The replica Hublot makes use of its popular and well-performing in-house made UNICO automatic chronograph movements for the collection. The UNICO caliber HUB 1280 movement operates at 4Hz with 72 hours of power reserve and is composed of 354 parts. It offers a 30-minute chronograph on the dial together with the time and a date indicator window. Despite the open-worked nature of the dial, the face of the watch is not so complicated to read in terms of the time. Some new design language is applied to how the subdials are made.
