Here you have the two new watches designed by Shawn Carter and produced by Hublot. These two watches – both limited editions – are Classic Fusion models and bear the Shawn Carter logo cut into the dial, revealing some of the movement's architecture.
The Shawn Carter by Hublot Classic Fusion is 45mm in diameter, though quite thin – the HUB1300 hand-wound movement is just 2.90mm thick. The black ceramic model will be limited to 250 pieces, with a retail price of $17,900. The yellow gold (yes, that's 3N yellow, not rose gold) will be made in just 100 pieces with a price of $33,900. Both watches are indeed part of Jay's collection in collaboration with Barney's, titled A New York Holiday.

Hublot has launched the new F1 King Power Great Britain, which will be available in a limited edition of 250 numbered pieces.
The timepiece has several features made from a range of high-tech materials inspired by Formula 1 racing, such as the carbon fibre and ceramic bezel with a circular grained satin finish, adorned with multiple holes, as well as the push-buttons for starting and resetting, and a 30-minute to three-hour counter.
Hublot kicks off its partnership with the World Boxing Council (WBC) with a series of 12 unique watches, each dedicated to one of the greatest boxers to enter the ring: Lennox Lewis, Julio Cesar Chavez, Mike Tyson, Sugar Ray Leonard, George Foreman, Marvelous Marvin Hagler, Tommy Harns, Roberto Duran, Oscar de la Hoya, Evander Holyfield, Jeff Fenech and Larry Holmes.
The watches will be auctioned from June this year prior to a unique event planned in September, which will bring together these legendary boxers to do battle outside the ring, not against each other but for the benefit of the charitable work of their federation.
A look at the collaboration between Hublot and the Miami Heat.
The notable feat in the creation lies with the fact that, 17 people have spent 14 months of their time, to set more than 140 carats worth of diamonds on this timepiece!
