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.
