Time for a smart strapWeekend Glitz | Samson Ng and Lisa Kao 8 Nov 2019
Making watch straps requires a special amount of precision and skill, as a well-made strap can only enhance the beauty of a watch.
Thus it is no surprise that most straps for big brands watch are crafted by specialist manufacturers. For example, the leather straps of Parmigiani are tailor-made by Hermes.
The luxurious watch brand Hublot notably places great emphasis on the quality of its straps.
This year the Swiss brand renewed its cooperation with leather brand Berluti to design straps for the new Classic Fusion Chronograph Berluti.
Sporting a logo brown-leather design, the new watch has a warm, artisanal appeal.
The brand officially launched its latest watches in Hong Kong last month at the Tai Kwun Centre for Heritage and Arts on Hollywood Rd.
Hublot's Greater China general manager, Loic Biver, and Berluti's Asia and China managing director, Yves Coppin, flew in to present the exciting new watches, and revealed them in a secret black box to the press on the day.
It would not be an exaggeration to say that the Classic Fusion Chronograph Berluti's timepiece is secured by one of the best straps in the world.
