This Classic Fusion Special Edition «London» replica that Hublot announces, shows that its imaginative capacity knows no bounds. The manufacture of Nyon has been associated with artists, with athletes with events of all kinds with famous summer islands … and now it seems that it is the turn of the cities. Of course, if this «London» is a start to this trend, the possibilities tend to infinity.
As with most of the special editions it issues under the “fusion” concept, Hublot has turned to the Classic Fusion Special Edition “London” for the Classic Fusion collection, whose name already denotes that it was created precisely for these purposes.
As for the decorative motif chosen for its customization and the character chosen for its presentation, I must admit that I have many doubts. The decorative motif, which we see reproduced on the dial of this Classic Fusion Special Edition «London» replica, is the famous «Union Jack». There is no doubt that this flag symbolizes much recent and not so recent history, but that of the United Kingdom, not that of the city of London. Under this premise, it could decorate the face of any fake watch dedicated to all cities in the United Kingdom.
n the following image we see Patrice Evra and Chris Froggatt during the London presentation of this Classic Fusion Special Edition «London» replica uk. Chris Froggatt’s role is understandable since he is a young British car driver who is also related to the Scuderia Ferrari, a brand with which Hublot maintains strong ties.
The Patrice Evra thing has me more intrigued. I will not discuss its sports value since it is beyond doubt, but it is a footballer born in Senegal, French nationalized and who reached his maximum splendor as a player of the French team, with whom he was proclaimed runner-up in the Euerocopa in 2016 and Manchester United won five leagues and the Champions League in 2007. He has passed through various French Italian and British clubs.
His only link to the City of London is having signed for West Ham United in 2018, after a tumultuous period in Marseille. With the London club he did not complete the entire season and only played 5 games. With the huge number of legendary footballers and athletes linked to London, I do not fully understand the choice of Evra, but surely there will be a reason.
Focusing on the replica watch uk, the Classic Fusion Special Edition «London» replica maintains all the technical codes of this collection. Its case, 45 millimeters in diameter by 10.95 thick, is made of black ceramic. This same gray color is the predominant color of its dial. As for the movement, inside we find the HUB1112 caliber, an automatic loading movement that oscillates at 28,800 vibrations per hour and offers a 42-hour power reserve.
The Classic Fusion Special Edition «London» replica is issued in limited edition format, at only 50 copies. Initially, its sale was limited to Hublot’s London boutiques in New Bond Street and Harrods, but the coincidence of its presentation with the great escalation of the world coronavirus crisis and all that it implies, I am afraid will cause practically all of the 50 units remain for the moment kept in the drawers of these boutiques.
