I am pretty sure that the official name of this new Hublot Classic Fusion Replica Watches model is the “Classic Fusion 42mm Classico Ultra-Thin Shiny Dial.” Did Hublot really need to add that extra “Classico” part of the name and is “Shiny Dial” really a term that fits with a high-end watch?
The Classic Fusion collection isn’t new, but Hublot keeps playing with it and refining it. This collection is among my favorite and feels like a “real” Hublot dress watch. At 42mm wide it isn’t too small or too large. Cheap Hublot Replica Watches makes it available in either an 18k king gold or titanium case and it is very much a classic Hublot in design. The case is about as “ultra-thin” as you would want an Hublot to be. Seriously, if it was Piaget Altiplano-thin it would look silly. The movement is just 2.90mm thick and the case is perhaps double that. It feels slim against the wrist and is very comfortable, more so than the 45mm wide version of the Classic Fusion for most wrists.
Speaking of movement, the Classic Fusion Ultra thin 42mm Shiny Dial contains an in-house made HUB 1300 family movement called the Hublot Replica Watches 1301. Manually wound, the movement offers just the time with subsidiary seconds dial and has a power reserve of 90 hours operating at 21,600 bph. Hublot finishes it in a darker anthracite plating with an attractive polish. It looks both classic while at the same time modern. You can see the movement through the exhibition caseback window. It is a simple mechanism, but certainly satisfying given the theme of the watch.
Back in 2010 we offered some of the first pictures of the “new” Hublot Replica Classic Fusion collection from Hublot here. In addition to our improved photography, you can see how much Hublot has refined the collection. The “shiny dial” is actually an important design element that mixed with the easy to read applied hour markers and hands makes for a handsome dial. I think with a dial such as this Hublot has hit upon a sweet spot, and the more glossy lacquered dial should be what people go for.
