The new watch is available in titanium and bronze, each with a cool brown and cold gold Venezia leather strap. The new collection will be on sale in Japan (Ginza, Osaka and Tokyo Isetan Hublot boutiques) and New York Hublot boutiques from June 19 to July 20, 2019, and officially land on the global market the next day .

Olga Berluti and Ricardo Guadalupe

  In the eyes of Olga Berluti, leather shoes that have been baptized over time are beautiful. She believes that every pair of shoes has its own soul. Adhering to this concept, she has created beautiful shades from shallow to deep and rich in layers, giving these shoes a unique charm that matches their owners.

  Applying this color tone in the field of watchmaking is quite challenging, but it is an exciting practice to integrate the classic elements of the Berluti brand, the traditional dyeing technique of patina and the ‘Scritto’ print. ——Ricardo Guadalupe CEO of Hublot

  Patina’s ancient dyeing process is researched and developed by Olga Buruti. Through the application of various essential oils and pigments, the use of colors and the sense of the times are subverted, giving shoes a unique personality. As one of the classic elements of the Berluti brand, the ‘Scritto’ print originated from the text of an 18th-century French letter obtained by Olga Beruti auction, and now it has become this iconic watch through the handwritten smooth lines. Symbolizes the sincere love of handmade craftsmanship by the two major brands. After completing the feat of encapsulating natural Venezia leather in a waterproof case, Hublot’s next challenge is obvious: presenting the classic elements of the Berluti brand on a metal material with completely different physical properties than leather, and injecting Berluti The soul of the two shows that the two major luxury brands are fused through the bond of professional skills to create a model of high quality.

  The two elegant cross-border fusion timepieces are equipped with the HUB1143 self-winding chronograph movement. The charming colors extend from the strap to the dial, converging the infinite autumn sense with rich contrasting tones. The watch comes in a custom case with a complete Berluti leather care set, limited to 200 pieces each.
