The Shawn Carter watch by Hublot, a unique conception
This model is a revisited conception of the Hublot Classic Fusion which is an absolute watchmaking master-piece.
M. Carter conceives this collection with Hublot in the most imaginable unique way.
The dial features Malta’s cross revealing by the way the HUB1300. Well-known movement in the Hublot Classic Fusion, christened ‘ultra thin classico skeleton’. In fact, a manual winding movement , only 2.9 mm height for 90h of accuracy. This high-tech wonder shelters 123 components including 21 stones, a platinum-plated black case. The sense of detail is carefully well expressed in every single piece, even in the Swiss lever escapement.
The innovative gold case gives Hublot quite a uniqueness, by opposition to the red gold 5N used in the Classic Fusion version. There are more than 160 manual tasks executed the way they should in a perfect mastery, which is more than necessary to set up a Hublot case. This model is made in black ceramic (250 copies) in yellow gold (100 copies), surprisingly a first for the Swiss watchmaker.
A unique design, a flawless integration, unequal quality, all these elements make the Shawn Carter by Hublot, a perfect equilibrium between technical nature and know-how. The rare available models were priced at 179000 and 339000 dollars, and still are priceless.
