After opening doors to its first flagship boutique north of the border at the end of September, fake Hublot watches are dedicated to investing time and resources in expanding their reach on the Canadian market. The next step in this expansion effort appeared in the form of a new Limited Edition release: the Hublot Classic Fusion Chronograph Special Edition, Jose Bautista. The Toronto Blue Jays veteran has been a sporting icon for the city for almost a decade, making him the perfect candidate to join the growing range of Replica Hublot athletic ambassadors.
When it came to designing the new release, the brand reports that Bautista was somewhat involved in the design – although exactly how much is unclear. At a basic level we have here a modified version of the Classic Fusion Magic Black, with as main changes the dial, back of the casing and belt. On the list of tasteful special edition dials we have to give Hublot the honor not to go overboard here. Bautista’s jersey number, number 19, is prominently displayed at 12 o’clock, set in black diamonds, and the running secondsub dial has been changed to look like a baseball, with light gray stitching against the satin sun-built black dial. We had found it more logical to place number 19 at the position of seven hours, but with the target audience for this piece that are more baseball fans than looking geeks, I do not see exactly that this is a deal-breaker in many, if there are cases . Mechanically speaking, the piece is still powered by the Caliber Hublot replica watches self-winding chronograph movement, good for a power reserve of 42 hours.
In our short chat with Bautista, it appears that the beloved # 19 is a bit interested in replica watch since long before Hublot knocked. “I started with some more affordable things in my previous years, but lately I have a total of about 22 or 23 watches,” Bautista said with a bit of a grin. “I had 3 or 4 Hublot watches by the time a common friend introduced me to some people of the brand, and it was not long before they invited me to a production tour. It was really a great experience to get a better picture of the complexity and craft involved in making watches, and it made me appreciate them, and the brand, that much more. “With his support team close by, there was no point poking and prodding to see what other watch brands were in his personal collection, and the sanding of Google images was also somewhat useless. That said, given the interest and enthusiasm in talking watches for just a short moment, we do not doubt that there are at least some interesting gems.
