Shawn Carter By Hublot Classic Fusion
Having had a well-known affinity for the luxurious Swiss timepieces since rapping about them on Watch The Throne‘s “Otis,” Jay Z now has his very own signature Hublot – the Shawn Carter by Hublot Classic Fusion. Decked out in black and gold, Hov’s customized Classic Fusion sports a design aesthetic in line with that of the rest of his upcoming collaboration with Barneys. Measuring 45mm in diameter, the piece features Hublot’s 2.90mm HUB1300 hand-wound movement and sports a modified face highlighted by the collection’s stylized cross at the center. Finished with a black leather strap, the watch is set to be available exclusively at the Barneys “A New York Holiday” pop-up installation beginning November 20. Black ceramic editions will be limited to 250 pieces at $17,900 USD each while the $33,900 USD yellow gold version will be limited to just 100 production models.
