GOTTA HAVE IT: Dark Force – Hublot Classic Fusion Tourbillion Night Out



Gotta Have It Dark Force Hublot Classic Fusion Tourbillion Night Out 4

Admit it, most of us are quite guilty of turning to the dark force every time we receive a gala invitation. Not that anyone’s about to engage in witchcraft or some such tomfoolery but – to borrow a line from the late great Amy Winehouse – we all go back to black. Indeed, black is the eternal colour of choice for most of us when considering an evening ensemble. Sure, the navy suit or scarlet jacket might be trendy at some point or other, but black will always be the next black. Always.

But going all out on black doesn’t necessitate the absence of details, as Hublot’s Classic Fusion Tourbillon Night-Out shows. This watch shows off its provocative side by pairing baguette-cut diamonds with its black lacquer dial. Try though they might, the only other elements that vie with those glam rocks for attention would be the distinctive H-shaped screws and facetted hour and minute hands. Watch aficionados, however, will not miss the strategically located tourbillon constructed with a bridge and carriage arms all coated black. The movement within is the hand-wound HUB6011 which is visible through the exhibition case back and offers 120 hours of power reserve.

Adding to the brilliance of the stones and lustre of the case, the shiny black calfskin leather strap (sewn onto rubber for comfort and flexibility) completes this glamorous timepiece. Finally we have a real way to break out of the traditional tux-and-stuffy-gold-watch combo.
