After the 2018 release of the Classic Fusion Aerofusion Chronograph Capri and the Classic Fusion Chronograph Special Edition Capri that was unveiled last year, Hublot unveiled the third masterpiece created in tribute to Capri. The Blue Grotto is a natural phenomenon and the inspiration for Hublot Classic Fusion Chronograph Special Edition Capri circa 2020.
The new edition features the bright blue color of the waters that sparkle in the depths of the cave. Limited to only 30 numbered pieces, the watch is available exclusively in the boutique on the island.
Symbolizing “la dolce vita”, Capri is dotted with secret coves, sunny lanes to be discovered, clifftop flower gardens and balconies lined with pine, lemon and olive trees. Boasting dizzying views over the sumptuous Bay of Naples, the pearl of Southern Italy is a veritable treasure trove that inspired Hublot to set up its boutique there in 2017. We think it deserves to be celebrated again. – Ricardo Guadalupe, CEO of Hublot
The design of the Classic Fusion Chronograph Special Edition Capri was inspired by the striking aesthetic of the Blue Grotto. The 45-mm case is made of polished black ceramic with a satin finish, surrounded by a bezel that is machined from ceramic in a vivid turquoise blue. The same wave of blue is seen lapping around the striated rubber strap and brings the dial of the chronograph to life with its chiaroscuro effect.
The unisex timepiece incorporates the HUB1143 self-winding chronograph movement with a power reserve of 42 hours.
