Cigar lovers are well aware of the name of Carlos Fuente, who has earned authority not only for the impeccable quality of his goods, but also for his unyielding resistance to circumstances: the Arturo Fuente factory named after his father changed the country three times before settling in the Dominican Republic, where it is located today. The watch brand Hublot became a partner of Arturo Fuente back in 2012, so the decision to release a series of watches in honor of Don Carlos limited to 100 pieces is understandable. The 44mm Big Bang Unico Arturo Fuente Ceramic case is crafted from black ceramic with a tobacco leaf engraving.
Connoisseurs will find on the dial of the return chronograph, equipped with an automatic in-house movement Unico, many more symbols of the Fuente family: from the rare for Hublot style Roman numerals, referring to the family coat of arms, to the crowned lion on the seconds scale at 9 o’clock, reminiscent of that the factory was a supplier to the Spanish royal court. The novelty is supplied in a lacquered wooden box, which can be used as a gift watch case or as a humidor for cigars.
