Wear a sculpture by the world’s bestselling French contemporary artist on your wrist

Hublot x Richard Orlinski

Wear a sculpture by the world’s bestselling French contemporary artist on your wrist
No matter which way you look at it, Richard Orlinski’s creation for Hublot is a gem

Cut with eye-catching facets like a diamond, and designed to present exactly twelve surfaces in tribute to the twelve hours on a dial, the Classic Fusion Aerofusion Chronograph Orlinski succinctly declares that time is indeed precious. His work revisits iconic imagery and immerses them in Pop Art. Monumental, brightly coloured sculptures of multi-faceted beasts by the artist are recognisable worldwide. The watch designed for Hublot expresses Orlinski's love for graphic shapes and pushes the boundaries of traditional watchmaking expertise.

"Original, bold, intriguing, the Classic Fusion Aerofusion Chronograph Orlinski is a sculpture which tells the time. Unique, its entire structure is bevelled, shaped by the facets created by the world's bestselling contemporary French artist. Its three-dimensional silhouette meant completely redesigning the construction of the case, whose facets have been extended to all the contours of the bezel,"  says Ricardo Guadalupe, CEO of Hublot.

The Classic Fusion Aerofusion Chronograph Orlinski comes in two distinct versions: titanium and blue ceramic, both featuring the artist's signature mirror polishing. Captivating facets and folds encompass the timepiece—from crown to case—hence breaking new ground in innovative watch manufacturing.

The two brand-new models have each been released in a limited run of 200 pieces each. Find out more at www.hublot.com.
