Gorgeous new timepieces that do so much more than tell the time

HUBLOT CLASSIC FUSION ORIGINAL

This year, Hublot has brought back the watch that shook up conventions in 1980. A precious gold case strapped on a simple rubber strap, unthinkable at the time, it sent huge shock waves through the world of fine watchmaking. The new Classic Fusion Original celebrates this timeless simplicity: available in yellow gold, titanium and ceramic, the cases come in 33mm, 38mm and 42mm. Its six famous screws place their hallmark on the bezels, while the sapphire case backs reveal the mechanical parts. Hublot’s iconic details bring the original watch up-to-date, making it a new, timeless classic.

ZENITH DEFY EXTREME GLACIER

Following 2021’s DEFY Extreme Desert, Zenith is going to the opposite kind of landscape for the second edition: meet the DEFY Extreme Glacier, inspired by frozen barren landscapes. The component that protects the pushers as well as the dodecagonal bezel is crafted from chalcedony, a crystalline semi-translucent stone with a pale blue hue that evokes the frozen glaciers. Meticulously cut and polished by hand, each stone is different and exhibits slightly different colours and fibrous structures. Keeping with the ice-cold theme, the chronograph counters are made from transparent sapphire crystal with a frosted finish.
