There is no denying the fact that we simply love the timepieces dished out by Hublot from time to time. The Swiss luxury watchmaker has collaborated with Hip Hop star Shawn Carter aka Jay Z, for a new limited edition collection of watches. Being one of the most successful musical artists and entertainment personalities today, Jay-Z’s collaboration with Hublot spells big news in the world of watches and fashion. The artist has previously shown his love for the brand with a piece about Hublot watches in his song Otis and Jay Z has been known to sport these on his wrist quite often too.
The limited-edition “Shawn Carter by Hublot” Classic Fusion watches come in either black ceramic or 18k yellow gold and are based on the existing Classic Fusion watch collection. These watches are 45mm wide and pack Hublot HUB1300 manually wound movement with a 90-hour power reserve. Only 250 pieces of the black ceramic version of the watch will be produced, while just 100 pieces of the 18k gold watch will be rolled out. While the former is priced at $17,900, the latter costs almost twice at more at $33,900 each.
