Baselworld 2012: I think that Hublot’s decision to develop on its “classic” line starting several years ago was a good one, particularly for those with “Big Bang” fatigue. Hublot continues developing the line this year with the Hublot Classic Fusion Skeleton Tourbillon. I wrote about a simpler version of this same watch last month (the Classic Fusion extra-thin skelelton), and now in addition to the tourbillon it also appears that Hublot has tweaked the design a bit (for the better). This is the first time that the “Classic Fusion” is fitted with a tourbillon movement, a logical progression of the line. In fact, the Classic Fusion line started in 2008 with a simple 3-handed mode with a date window, then last year gorgeous Classic Fusion chronograph model, and now we get the tourbillon + skeleton.
