The Classic Fusion will come in two different makeups including black ceramic and yellow gold. The black ceramic model will be limited to 250 pieces and retail at a price of $17,900. The yellow gold model will have a run of just 100 pieces and carry a price tag of $33,900. Both will be available on November 20 from the Shawn Carter – A New York Holiday – pop-up installation at Barneys, which runs through January 3. They will also be available at select Hublot boutiques on November 20.
Jay Z has been infatuated with luxury timepieces for quite some time so this latest collaboration with Swiss watchmaker Hublot comes as no big surprise. Designed by Mr. Carter himself and produced by Hublot, the Shawn Carter by Hublot Classic Fusion bears the Shawn Carter logo cut into the dial, revealing some of the movement’s architecture. Measuring 45mm in diameter, the HUB1300 hand-wound movement is quite thin at just 2.90mm thick.
