For Mixing Business and Pleasure: Hublot’s Classic Fusion Chronograph Berluti
The Swiss watch brand brings its technical know-how, and the Italian fashion brand its leather expertise, for one sexy collab. Berluti first engraves its signature Venezia Scritto calf leather with writing inspired by 18th-century calligraphy, then the leather is mineral- and vegetabletanned, just like its shoes. To ensure that the leather for the dial doesn’t oxidise (read: it won’t ever spoil), a “complex and delicate process” is employed to neutralise humidity. The chrono comes in two colourways – burgundy strap with Hublot’s proprietary King Gold case, $52,200; and blue strap with titanium, $22,300.
