Special Edition Hublot x The Rake, Aerofusion Chronograph "Molon Labe”
Available exclusively on The Rake in October 2018, in a limited run of just 25 pieces.
Using the world’s oldest and most modern alloys, Hublot and The Rake have married classicism and contemporary aesthetics — as well as a passion for cigars — to form a new signature watch.
Hublot's stance on 'The Art of Fusion' takes place in this Classic Fusion model, assembled with a mixture of metals to marry different yet applicable techniques that reflect both tradition and modern innovation. The skeletonised HUB1155 chronograph movement is framed within a bronze bezel complemented with polished and plated 18K yellow gold indices and main hour and seconds hands. The date is visible through an aperture at 6 o'clock. The titanium case takes on a muted look with a microblasted finish and dressed in either a black rubber or brown calf leather strap with matching brown stitching.

THE ART OF FUSION
Created specially in collaboration with our sister publication The Rake magazine, the marriage of tradition and innovation was emulated in this special edition Classic Fusion model. From the microcosmic details of tailoring and craft, to the dynamism of watchmaking, what resulted was a unique watch with a sartorial vision.
The "sandwich-assembled" case comprises a hybrid of materials, with a bronze bezel and microblasted titanium case, the latter to evoke its pragmatic aerospace and military roots.
A SMOKIN' CUFF
Dressed in either black rubber or brown calf leather, the dressing touch was in homage to Arturo Fuentes Cigars, whose smokes carry the reputation of a perfect blend.
Powered by the caliber HUB1155, the movement debuted at SIHH 2013 in the first skeletonised Classic Fusion model with the Aero chronograph concept. Preserving the same aesthetics of black-coated bridges on the dial front, the indices and main hour and second hands are presented in plated and polished 18K yellow gold.
