Hublot Launch 2019 Classic Fusion Mykonos Timepiece

By Paul Joseph

Swiss luxury watchmakers Hublot have followed up on the success of their original Classic Fusion Mykonos timepiece by launching a new and updated version for 2019.

First launched in 2012, the new edition has been created by Hublot in partnership with GOFAS Jewellery and is described as being inspired by the Aegean Sea and the Cyclades Archipelago in Greece.

The watch features a sky blue ceramic bezel and unique rotating windmill, the iconic symbol of the Greek island of Mykonos, ‘waving’ at 3 o’clock.

Windmills are a symbol of the Greek island’s rich past and 16 of the 28 old windmills that were originally found all over the island are still standing. Most of the remaining windmills, though, have been refurbished and can be visited.

The watch’s 45mm case houses a skeleton self-winding chronograph movement and is crowned with sky blue ceramic bezel.

The new Hublot Classic Fusion Chronograph Mykonos Model also has a sapphire dial that showcases the watchmaker’s logo engraved at the crown in either polished king gold or titanium.

The watch is paired with a bi-material strap in black rubber and sky blue alligator leather. Available only in Mykonos, the timepiece is offered in two variants: titanium and king gold.

Each variant is limited to just 50 examples.
