Berry’s is celebrating its 125th anniversary this year with a series of celebrations and collaborations including a special edition Classic Fusion made to mark the occasion from its long term partner Hublot.
The Hublot piece is expected to be the first of several special watches made with partners to mark the landmark year.
Hublot Classic Fusion Racing Grey Titanium “Berry’s 125th” Special Edition
The Hublot Classic Fusion Racing Grey Titanium “Berry’s 125th” Special Edition, limited to just 25 pieces, comes in a satin-finished titanium case, a grey sunray dial and alligator leather strap.
It has subtle design elements linked to Berry’s. Grey and purple are signature colours for the Leeds-headquartered jeweller.
Purple is used for the seconds hands and stitching for the grey leather strap.
Each watch will be engraved with the edition number on the case-back, and is presented in a custom-made box bearing the Berry’s Logo.
“True to one of Hublot’s leading philosophies, Be First, Be Unique, Be Different, we are pleased to unveil this special edition timepiece – the very first of Berry’s 125th anniversary collaborations – in partnership with this much respected retailer. Many happy returns to Berry’s!,” says Hublot CEO Ricardo Guadalupe.
Simon Walton, managing director of Berry’s, says the Hublot watch is a mark of friendship between the businesses.
“When we were initially looking at brands to collaborate with for our 125th Anniversary, Hublot immediately came to mind. We have a fantastic relationship with the Hublot UK team, as we carry the brand across three of our ten stores, and it’s been a pleasure to have worked with them on this exciting project,” he says.
“During the design phase of this limited-edition watch, we were hoping for a subtle fusion between both brands, and I think that has been realised in this rare, limited-edition portfolio of just 25 pieces. Our partnership with Hublot has grown over time, and I look forward to many more successful years to come working with the Hublot Maison.”
The Hublot Classic Fusion Titanium “Berry’s 125th” Special Edition is available exclusively from Berry’s boutiques in Leeds, Nottingham and on berrysjewellers.co.uk for £7,700.
