If skull art does not excite you then the Hublot Classic Fusion Tourbillon Skull unveiled at the 2014 Baselworld might not be your choice of design though the timepiece exudes amazing craftsmanship. But worry not; along with it the Swiss watchmaker has also launched new Hublot Classic Fusion Tourbillon Vitrail at the luxury watch and jewelry expo and not only does it set new standards in horology but also come with some new technology. The watch will be available in 4 versions: Red or Blue with a 45mm titanium case, and Red or Blue with 45mm lack ceramic case.

The red or the blue color that can be seen in the dial is actually stained glass that is cut with a laser and made to fit into the spaces with extreme precision.

The glass is painted using a special technology that offers 10 colors of translucent glass, which means there are numerous possible color combination and we can expect Hublot to offer more than just Red and Blue in the future. In fact Hublot is already in process of announcing future editions of this very model.
