After throwing the doors open to its first flagship boutique north of the border in late September, Hublot Classic Fusion Replica seems committed to investing time and resources in expanding their reach in the Canadian market.The Toronto Blue Jays veteran has been a sporting icon for the city for nearly a decade, making him the perfect candidate to join Hublot’s growing roster of athletic ambassadors.
When it came to designing the new release, the brand states that Bautista had some level of involvement in its design – though exactly how much is unclear. At a basic level, what we have here is an altered version of the Classic Fusion Replica Watches Magic Black, with its primary changes being to its dial, caseback, and strap.We would have thought it more logical to place the number 19 at the seven o’clock position, however with the target audience for this piece being baseball fans more than watch geeks, I don’t exactly see this being a deal-breaker in many, if any cases. Mechanically speaking, the piece is still powered by the Caliber Hublot HUB1143 self-winding chronograph movement, good for a power reserve of 42 hours.
In our brief chat with Bautista, it turns out that the beloved #19 has had a bit of an interest in watches since long before Hublot came knocking.It was just a really great experience to get a better idea of the complexity and the craft involved in making watches, and it made me appreciate them, and the brand, that Hublot Replica Watches much more.” With his support team close at hand, there was to be no poking and prodding to see what other watch brands were in his personal collection, and scouring Google images also proved somewhat futile. That said, given the interest and enthusiasm in talking watches for but a brief moment, we don’t doubt there are at least a few interesting gems in there.
Bautista turned free agent this past MLB season, and at time of publishing it remains unclear whether or not the MLB veteran will return to the Toronto Blue Jays in 2018.
