Designed in collaboration with graffiti and street artist Tristan Eaton, the Classic Fusion Aerofusion Chronograph Concrete Jungle is the latest Hublot watches under 5000 Replica to experiment with novel materials.
The bezel is made of concrete, or more specifically concrete mixed with epoxy resin to increase the robustness of the material, a reference to the “concrete jungle” that is New York City.
On the rear of the watch a collage motif depicted the Statue of Liberty created by Mr Eaton is printed on the sapphire case back, while the artist’s emblem is on the sub-dial at three o’clock.
The rest of the watch is identical to the standard Classic Fusion Aerofusion Chronograph, with a 45mm case in black ceramic, equipped with the HUB1155 movement, a Sellita SW300 automatic with a chronograph module.
