Hublot has joined forces with Mistal in Oman on a special edition timepiece celebrating the Sultanate’s 50th anniversary (November 18, 2020). The Swiss luxury watchmaker’s collaboration with the watch and jewelry boutique sees the creation of the Classic Fusion Special Edition Oman Golden Jubilee.
Featuring black rubber and green vintage alligator with green stitching, the Classic Fusion is housed in a 42mm micro-blasted Titanium case with a brushed bronze bezel. As bronze is covered with a natural patina that protects it and lends it an unparalleled finish, it gives this special edition a unique color that contrasts with the smoked green dial which positions its 3N gold-plated appliques in an unusual direction. A must-have for proud Omanis, the country’s colors are reflected in the dial which features a black to green gradient as well as polished gold-plated applique. What’s more, the micro-blasted case back is engraved with the words “Special Edition – Golden Jubilee – 1 of 100” allowing patriots and to mark 50 years of their country with this memorable timepiece, of which there are only 100 pieces.
“Hublot is happy to celebrate the Sultanate’s 50th anniversary with this new edition, and we are looking forward to seeing the watch on the wrists of our Omani Hublotistas,” said David Tedeschi, regional director for Hublot Latin America and Caribbean and Middle East and Africa. “This launch sets a mark in history, and embodies a fusion of time, history and culture.”
Managing director of Mistal, Dharmesh Ajit Khimji said, “We are proud to present with Hublot this special watch dedicated to our country’s jubilee. This jubilee is an important milestone for the country and we are proud to be able to celebrate it. It is a very special edition that we will cherish for the 50 years to come.”
