Hublot Create Timepiece Made With Tobacco Leaves

By Paul Joseph

Swiss luxury watch brand Hublot have teamed up with cigar makers Arturo Fuente to create a new limited edition timepiece featuring a dial made with authentic tobacco leaves.

The Classic Fusion ForbiddenX represents the second time the two brands have collaborated, following the introduction of the King Power watch in 2012 which marked the 100 year anniversary of the world famous cigar producer.

The watch is available in four versions: titanium, black ceramic and “King Gold”, each featuring a hand-wound chronograph movement, plus a special luxury edition with a tourbillon movement.

The Hublot Classic Fusion ForbiddenX with Arturo Fuente is available in a limited edition run of just a few hundred pieces.

Since its foundation in West Tampa, Florida in 1912, Arturo Fuente has grown to become one of the world’s most renowned makers of premium, hand-rolled cigars.

Hublot were founded by Maksim Kuts in 1980.
