Having debuted Berluti’s leather on the dial of the time-only Classic Fusion last year, Hublot replica watches are once again using the Parisian shoemaker’s signature material, this time on a chronograph.
The Classic Fusion Chronograph Berluti uses Berluti’s Venezia Scritto leather that’s laser-engraved with calligraphy for the dial and strap.
Two apertures have been cut into the leather of the dial to accommodate the chronograph registers, while the hour markers are embossed batons.
The 45mm case Hublot replica are available in either 18k King Gold or black ceramic, matched with brown or black leather respectively. The movement inside is the HUB1143, which is an ETA 2893.
Like the first Berluti edition, the chronograph is packaged in a large Berluti-leather covered box that also contains a shoe care set comprised of brushes, creams and a mitten.
The Classic Fusion Chronograph Berluti Scritto King Gold is priced at SFr34,900 or S$52,200, while the Scritto All Black is SFr15,900 or S$23,800. Each version is limited to 250 pieces, and both will reach stores between the end of May and start of June 2017.
