Hublot Classic Fusion Racing Grey 45 511.NX.7071.LR
This Tag Heuer chronograph is one of the key references and ticks all the right boxes. Its vintage look is immediately appealing. Although largely updated, with its steel case of 44mm and its satin and polished finishes, it remains faithful to the original model created in 1963 by Mr. Jack Heuer himself!
The spirit of the mythical races in which the watch took part can be felt through the multiple angles and facets of its case that evoke the fairing of the racing cars driven by the illustrious Heuer.
But there is also a lot of finesse and elegance in this model, as in its applied beveled indexes or polished ceramic bezel. There is a subtle balance between sporting prowess and elegance on both versions with blue and black dials. The tachymeter scale will also let you know how fast you were driving from the port to the Hotel de Paris.
The delicate circular decorations of the chronograph sub-counters at 3 and 9 o'clock accentuate the vintage aspect of the timepiece and recall its mythical history. The watch could be described as imposing, but it seems to have a rather strong character. It does not go unnoticed and that's all the better. However, it doesn't sacrifice comfort with its excellent ergonomics and you'll be quite comfortable despite your pair of 2's in hand at the Texas Hold'em table!
For the purists, a glance at the back reveals one of the strong points of this chronograph: a high quality manufacture caliber, the Heuer 02. This automatic movement proudly displays its column wheel under its exquisitely openworked oscillating weight to allow the eye to enjoy the well-detailed côtes de Genève finishing and the jewels that enhance the whole. It offers a generous 80-hour power reserve that allows for more than a weekend's worth of timekeeping. And if you feel like timing your aquatic exploits, the chronograph is waterproof to 100m!
A chronograph with a powerful character that remains elegant. A true manufacture caliber with impeccable finishing. The perfect "cool watch"... for a quality-price-pleasure ratio that clearly defies the competition!
