Hublot Classic Fusion Ultra Thin ......... Experiences ?

I have NEVER been a fan of Hublot’s “interpretation” of a watch, but I just discovered the Classic Fusion Ultra Thin Titanium, and wow does it grab me !

Anyone among us have any Fusion Ultra Thin experience to share ?

BTW - The “H” screw heads not in alignment is not acceptable for this watch !

no experience with it, but I agree, the classic fusion line are the only Hublots which appeal to me as well. I especially like the blue and grey dialed versions.

The only slight hesitation I have is I think they use a Sellita movement, but not sure about this one posted with the small seconds and no-date. I guess another hesitation is I've owned watches without minute indices in the past, and it's bugged me a little bit.

This has a supposed in-house manual wind. In-house definitions these days are questionable though !

The misaligned screws are the only thing that bugs me. I don’t think I could overlook that on a daily basis.

I've seen both & for the ultra thin prefer the white dial with brown strap pictures above much more than the black dial black strap combo.

Great watch, extremely comfortable because of the lightweight titanium and rubber strap inlay.

I've tried the ultra thin and own this Blue dial titanium Classic Fusion. It is a very confortable watch, the blue hue on the dial changes depending on the light and the rubber/alligator strap is nice!

Thatís a nice color of dial.

Does the screw alignment, or lack thereof, get your attention?

Misalignment not an issue for me, but the lack of minute indices would. I have a vintage Rolex with only five minute/hour indices, and it bugs me a bit, especially when setting. Also not a fan of branded seconds hands.

Sorry, yes was more referencing the standard Classic Fusions. I would assume the ultra-thin pictured would have the same "in-house" movement as the skeletons.

It's because they are actual screws, not just caps like in the Royal Oak.

That would be the one for me. The screws are part of Biver's chaos theory and as I like the guy I'll buy it.

I realize that they are functional, but the misalignment really draws my eye.

id rather have the actual screws in the back like on the RO. Symmetry on the bezel is important, on the back the screws can go whatever way and i dont care.

The "caps" are functional though. They hold the screws to the case. Like a nut.

I agree with you both. I suppose that if they used the caps like AP they would have been bashed for copying the solution, so "damned if you do, damned if you don't".
