Hublot revived its iconic model in three different builds and sizing, ranging from yellow gold, and titanium to black magic ceramic, all available in 33mm, 38mm, and 42mm case sizes. Although the Hublot Classic Original is modeled from a 1980s timepiece, its minimalist yet monochromic design makes it just as appealing for the contemporary age. Prices range from $6,500 to $24,100 USD, with the larger sizes running on the MHUB111- automatic movement, while the 33mm version is powered by a HUB2913 quartz movement.
