On A Roll: Hublot Presents The Classic Fusion “Las Vegas Boutiques” Collection
These horological high rollers are exclusive to the brand’s two Las Vegas boutiques.
There is nothing like Las Vegas energy. Even if you haven’t been in a while, you can close your eyes and easily summon the bells and boops of the slot machines, the flavors of world-class restaurants and all-you-can-eat buffets, and the visceral reaction of watching a boxing match or over-the-top circus act. Anything goes in Sin City, and no matter how at odds these experiences may seem, they work together.
This mix also makes the city the perfect home away from home for Hublot. The Art of Fusion is the name of this brand’s game, so if you get lucky in Las Vegas, then bringing home a Hublot is the ultimate souvenir.
And since game recognizes game, Hublot is happy to present the Classic Fusion “Las Vegas Boutiques” collection, a line of exquisite pieces exclusive to its two Las Vegas boutiques.
Hublot has enjoyed a long and proud history with Las Vegas. Its two boutiques – Hublot Las Vegas Crystals Boutique and Hublot Las Vegas Forum Boutique – are destinations in themselves.
“Las Vegas is one of Hublot’s top markets in North America, and indeed the world,” said Hublot CEO Ricardo Guadalupe in a press release. “The action-packed city attracts a customer that is looking for everything Hublot exemplifies – luxury, innovation, and flair.”
While Hublot’s boutiques draw an international clientele, the brand has long been associated with the local culture of Las Vegas. From its association with the World Poker Tour to celebrating legends with the World Boxing Council to providing immersive luxury experiences with the landmark TopGolf, Hublot knows what players want. And to create the Classic Fusion “Las Vegas Boutiques” collection, the company’s design team carefully reviewed Las Vegas fan favorites. The result is a riff on the best-selling 45mm Classic Fusion Chronograph with elegant accents that will celebrate the Las Vegas vibe.
Bet on Black
There are four limited edition timepieces featured in the Classic Fusion Las Vegas Boutiques collection. Presented in luxurious black ceramic and gold.
Black ceramic first made a splash in the watch industry when Hublot introduced the concept of “invisible visibility.” And against a background of a black ceramic case, black dial, and black alligator leather strap, the brand’s proprietary King Gold provide more than just accents; it lights up the collection like the Vegas Strip at night.
Six black diamonds detail the “Lucky 7” marker at the 7 o’clock position, just in case you need a little assistance from Lady Fortune when you hit the tables. The pieces in the collection also feature display casebacks decorated with the emblematic “Welcome To Fabulous Las Vegas Nevada” sign.
But if you need a little more sizzle, the Classic Fusion Chronograph Las Vegas Boutique Diamonds version doubles down on the black diamonds with a gem-encrusted bezel. It’s unabashedly flashy but not so overdone that the watch you buy in Vegas will have to stay in Vegas (or a vault surrounded by laser beams).
And for those who rely more on engineering than luck, the chronographs of the Classic Fusion “Las Vegas Boutiques” collection are powered by the HUB1143 self-winding chronograph movement. And because Las Vegas is more than a 24-hour town, the watches have a 42-hour power reserve and date window at 6 o’clock.
Rounding out the collection are four one-of-a-kind designs that will be available to view exclusively at the Hublot Las Vegas Boutiques: the Classic Fusion Chronograph King Gold Black Diamond Pave and the Classic Fusion Chronograph “Las Vegas Boutiques.”
“We hope this shows our gratitude to our loyal Las Vegas base and celebrates this city that has welcomed us so wholly,” added Guadalupe.
The Classic Fusion Chronograph Las Vegas Boutique is limited to 21 pieces and costs $19,100, while the Classic Fusion Chronograph Las Vegas Boutique Diamonds is limited to 7 pieces and costs $25,400.
The Hublot Classic Fusion “Las Vegas Boutiques” collection is available exclusively through the Hublot Las Vegas Crystals Boutique and Hublot Las Vegas Forum Boutique and available for nationwide white glove delivery.
