To mark its 40th anniversary, Hublot has reinvented the 1980 Classic Original, an iconic example of its disruptive approach. Straddling past and future, horological tradition and technical innovation, this 2020 edition is available in a mechanical version. An icon that works a variety of materials, finishes and modern and classic technologies into three collectors’ models to celebrate Hublot’s 40th anniversary.

“These Classic Fusion models embody 40 years packed with technological advances and breaking with convention. Not content with simply reissuing the 1980 Classic Original, we have reinterpreted it to reflect the Hublot of today. One model with a mechanical movement in a 45 mm format for men. A brand-new contemporary version that celebrates Hublot’s innovative approach of the last forty years”, says Ricardo Guadalupe, CEO of Hublot.
