Hublot pays homage to New York City with its first concrete timepiece, Classic Fusion Aerofusion Concrete Jungle, co-designed by visionary street artist and former New Yorker, Tristan Eaton.
In an homage to one of the world’s most iconic cities, Hublot has continued to fulfill its mission to “Be First, Be Different, Be Unique” by developing a watch with actual concrete elements incorporated in the bezel. We are honored to have worked with Tristan Eaton on this timepiece, and he has elevated the “Concrete Jungle” timepiece with his signature mosaic artistry on the caseback. With a limited run of 50 pieces, the brand is excited to be able to offer this reference to a select group of buyers who appreciate New York City for its liveliness, its tenacity, and its inspiration. – Jean-François Sberro, Managing Director, Hublot of America
The Classic Fusion Aerofusion Concrete Jungle has landed its name not accidentally: as we know “Concrete Jungle” is the nickname for New York City and an actual material component of the watch. In following the brand’s mission to “Be First, Be Different, Be Unique,” the latest style incorporates real elements of concrete in the bezel.
The case back of the Classic Fusion Aerofusion Concrete Jungle features Tristian Eaton’s signature collage technique that creates a colorful motif of the Statue of Liberty, named Liberty which serves as a perfect example of how artist’s works incorporate the “Art of Fusion”. The subject was first explored in Eaton’s original piece, Liberty, painted in September of 2012 at the corner of Mulberry Street and Canal Street in New York City’s Little Italy neighborhood. The “Concrete Jungle” Classic Fusion Aerofusion timepiece is limited to 50 pieces, available for purchase at Hublot New York boutiques on Madison Avenue and Fifth Avenue for $19,500.
