Aerofusion Aspen Snowmass Watch Nods to Colorado Ski Resort
The Alpine White skeleton watch pays its respects to Aspen’s heritage of silver mining with a titanium dial.
The Hublot “Aerofusion Aspen Snowmass” is said to call to mind the iconic ski resorts of Colorado. The ultra-reflective titanium dial mirrors the silver mining heritage that put Aspen on the map so many years ago.
After 75 years of bringing the thrill of the slopes to upscale citizens, 2022 calls for an anniversary celebration. There is no better way to mark the occasion than with Hublot’s limited-edition piece. This adds up since Hublot is the resort’s official timekeeper.
The Classic Fusion may seem familiar here as the Swiss watchmaker used it as a base for the Aerofusion Aspen Snowmass concept. The bezel is prominently displayed in Alpine White ceramic, offering juxtaposition against the satin-polished black ceramic 45 mm case.
Meanwhile, the skeletonized sapphire dial and its rhodium plating appliques offer complexity and style. Careful observers will note that the second-hand pointer is an Aspen tree leaf, a clever detail.
The hands and indices reflect the high-shine appearance of the whole thanks to a brilliant titanium finish. Again, the tribute to the heritage of both Aspen township and the Rocky Mountains is clear on this note.
The black rubber and black-stiched white calf strap are kept in place by a black PVD stainless steel-coasted clasp.
Power for the timepiece is generated by the brand’s very own HUB1155 self-winding skeleton chronograph movement with a 42-hour reserve.
Colorado in the winter is a special place all on its own. Pairing that majesty to luxury ski resorts and fine Horlogerie really brings together the spirit of the season with the silver mining region’s rich history.
These pieces are rare indeed; only 30 examples are to be produced. Each carries a price tag of $18,500. Visit Hublot’s website to purchase the Hublot Aerofusion Aspen Snowmass.
