Hublot presents a new Classic Fusion sculpted by Richard Orlinski

THE FIRST WORK OF ART WHICH SHOWS TIME!

Miami, December 2017

Classic Fusion Aerofusion Chronograph Orlinski

 
Swiss watchmaker Hublot and Richard Orlinski combine their know-how to create the Classic Fusion Aerofusion Chronograph Orlinski, which brings to life the artist’s graphic universe. The watch features a brand-new design playing with angles and reflections. Ridges and facets on the watch reflect each other, from the case to the bezel, and from the push buttons to the hands.

Chances are you will have seen Richard Orlinski’s brightly coloured Pop Art-style multi-facetted beasts somewhere before. From his immense “Wild Kong” gorilla sculpture on the Croisette in Cannes and his crocodiles in the sunshine of the Miami Design District, to his 5-metre-tall bear on the snowy pistes of Courchevel.

Eager to rise to challenges, Richard creates his sculptures by cutting them like diamonds and he never fails to rise to a challenge. In the hands of Richard Orlinski, the Classic Fusion Aerofusion Chronograph is adorned with its iconic facets, 12 of course, like those that punctuate the dial of a watch!

The Classic Fusion Aerofusion Chronograph Orlinski is available in two brand-new models, each released in a limited edition of 200 pieces: one in titanium and the other in blue ceramic. The watch becomes a 45-mm work of art designed to be worn on the wrist.

The Hublot x Richard Orlinski watch’s dial has been cast in sapphire crystal, while the case, crown, bezel and push buttons also feature the facets.
The visionary design of Richard Orlinski presented a major challenge for the Hublot Manufacture: the work of Richard Orlinski – a three-dimensional fold in the case – had to be modelled before it was cut from ceramic and titanium. These two materials feature one of the artist’s iconic signatures: mirror polishing.
