Hublot has teamed up with the Cheval Blanc Randheli resort in the Maldives, owned by LVMH (Louis Vuitton Moet Hennesy), to create a timepiece called the Classic Fusion special edition. Designed by Parisian artist Vincent Beaurin, the special edition watch was inspired by the Indian Ocean’s varying shades of blue. Beaurin, who also designed the signature works of art at the Cheval Blanc maison, was commissioned to help create the unique dial using sand.
“Just like the blue waters surrounding Cheval Blanc Randheli, the captivating blue tones of the two new timepieces dedicated to the maison create an appealing aura on the wrist, offering wearers a new experience with time,” says Hublot CEO Ricardo Guadalupe.
The Classic Fusion special edition is available in 45mm and 38mm versions with brushed metal cases and blue crocodile straps. The 38mm version also features a halo of crystalline stones on the bezel. The timepieces are available exclusively at the Cheval Blanc Rhandeli concept store in Hublot’s dedicated area at the resort.
