Flash News: Hublot Classic Fusion Skull Bang Pavé

By Thierry Ané on March 29, 2014

Memento Mori motifs are no longer for rebels. It has been a long time now that skulls and bones have made their entrance into the muted world of Haute Horology. So much so that it even seems odd not to be offered such a model by a brand directed at fashion-conscious watch connoisseurs.

Hublot introduced its first “Skull Bang” under the impulse of Chronopassion in Paris in 2012. Not surprisingly, the watch was black (ceramic) but most surprisingly and perhaps with a touch of irreverence that suited this model, the Classic Fusion Skull Bang was part of the Classic Fusion collection, the most classical and refined case model offered by the brand.

The combination of sophistication and rebel attitude was successful and the 100 pieces produced are now long gone. Hublot, however, knows how to tap a good market opportunity and the Nyon-based manufacture has decided to unveiled two extra models with the little touch of bling the brand is so familiar with!

Welcome the Skull Bang Pavé in titanium or black PVD titanium. The former version is set with brilliant-cut white diamonds and features a black diamond skull while the latter is the exact negative image being set with brilliant-cut black diamonds and proudly showcasing a white diamond skull.

Both models are equipped with the self-winding and time-only HUB 1110 calibre. They are mounted on a black alligator strap sewn onto rubber secured by a steel or black PVD steel folding buckle depending on the model. Two great watches that will certainly not go unnoticed on your wrist!
