First look: Hublot's Classic Fusion Ferrari GT watch embraces curves

Created in collaboration with Ferrari's Centro Stile – the in-house design group of the Prancing Horse – the curvy new Hublot Classic Fusion Ferrari GT is a marked departure from the sharply angular and structural design common to most Hublot watches.

To my eye, it's a rare example of successful design that overlaps elements from both cars and watches.

Available in titanium, King Gold, and a special polymer matrix composite called 3D carbon, the Ferrari GT is 45mm wide and uses Hublot's in-house UNICO HUB1280 flyback chronograph movement.

On the wrist it sits low, feels great, and looks even better.

Thanks largely to the convex saucer-like case profile, the Ferrari GT wears much smaller than the sizing would suggest, with hooded lugs and an oversized screw down crown accenting smooth and flowing case edge.

The chronograph action is lovely and the titanium has a muted look and a lightweight presence that is really only challenged by the more hardcore look of the 3D Carbon model.

A major departure from the standard design language of the Classic Fusion, only 2,000 examples will be produced, including 1,000 pieces of the US$22,000 titanium model and 500 each of the US$27,300 3D Carbon and US$38,800 King Gold versions.
