Not a sexy name, but the look? Well, maybe. This collaboration with fashionable Italian eyewear/sunglasses brand has resulted in a case featuring a brand new material, Texalium® , whose design is exclusive to the Swiss watchmaking brand. Texalium is unique in that it is aluminium-coated carbon fiber; the great advantage of this is that it can be designed in different colours and has a remarkable brilliance, with all the lightness of carbon fiber. By now well accustomed to carbon fiber cases, you can see that Hublot has gone a step further to achieve a rather vivid color variation. Actually, two colors are unveiled — blue and grey. Each with Hublot’s in-house UNICO chronograph caliber. A 500-piece limited edition of each of these two versions will be produced; each watch comes in a customised Italia Independent display case, complete with a pair of Italia Independent sunglasses, also made from Texalium. And that studded denim strap? Just a little something extra special for you Hublotistas.
