The fastest man in the world was in St Barth's to launch a limited edition Hublot Classic Fusion

It’s been 10 years since Usain Bolt and Swiss watch brand Hublot joined forces, and last night GQ Middle East was in St Barth's to watch Bolt unveil a new special edition watch for the brand.

The Hublot Classic Fusion and Classic Aerofusion chronograph Eden Rock are limited to just 25 pieces of each model and will be available first at St Barth's Eden Rock Hotel.

A storied hotel that sits on the shore of the island, its private villas giving way to white sand and blue seas, Eden Rock has been an escape in paradise since the 1950s.

The Classic Fusion comes in a 45mm titanium case that houses Hublot’s HUB1155 skeleton movement, allowing you to see the self-winding mechanics at work. The titanium case is offset by a white dial and red second hand, the Eden Rock colours. The white is also a nod to the sand of the resort’s beach.

The Eden Rock special edition joins Hublot collaborations with resorts in Aspen and Zermatt, creating what might be the world's deaerst world tour of time pieces.

Jetting over from Jamaica for the launch, Bolt, who wears a Hublot Big Bang, said that it was an honour to continue his work with Hublot, a partnership that has included both watch designing and charity work.
