Hublot’s Classic Fusion Aerofusion Chronograph Orlinski brings to life the sculptor Richard Orlinski graphic universe featuring a design which plays with angles and reflections. Ridges and facets on the 45mm watch, limited to 200 pieces, reflect each other, from the case to the bezel, and from the push buttons to the hands.
To celebrate their union, the sculptor and the watch company naturally chose Miami and two special venues right in the heart of the Design District: The Hublot boutique and the Markowicz Fine Art gallery, where the artist’s works are on the show.
Orlinski, the world’s bestselling contemporary French artist now joins the Hublot family, alongside other famous names including Maxime Büchi, Lapo Elkann, Pelé, Lang Lang, Bar Refaeli, Usain Bolt and even Dustin Johnson.
The Classic Fusion Aerofusion Chronograph Orlinski, 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 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.
Orlinski’s visionary design 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.
