After five years of collaboration, Hublot and Richard Orlinski are unveiling a series of watches adorned with a new metallic bracelet using the facets of the French artist’s famous sculptures.
Hublot unveiled the first watch sculpted by Richard Orlinski in Miami in December 2017. Since the launch of the first model, the Swiss watchmaker and Richard Orlinski have given life to a collection of watches displaying the angular style typical of the French artist’s work.
Richard Orlinski is a member of the Hublot Loves Art family in the same way as Shepard Fairey, Maxime Plescia-Buchi, Marc Ferrero and Takashi Murakami.
Hublot and Richard Orlinski are now beginning a new phase in their partnership by presenting four versions of the Hublot Classic Fusion Orlinski Bracelet fitted with a new integrated metallic bracelet.
Hublot’s engineers have displayed all their technical expertise in making a watch whose corners, bevelled edges and facets define the character of the case, bevel, crown, and a metallic bracelet whose architecture is bevelled and faceted in titanium and composed of 83 parts. Inspired by Richard Orlinski’s sculptures, its chamfered forms play with the reflections of its mirror-polished facets. The H-shaped links recall the Hublot logo. This new bracelet attaches to the watch case, on which the facets extend. With a 40 mm diameter, it suits all wrists and all genders. Its polished titanium case encloses a HUB1100 movement, a self-winding calibre with a power reserve of 42 hours. Its dial comes in a choice of black or white ceramic and displays the angular facets so unique to Richard Orlinski.
A partially pave set version of the Hublot Classic Fusion Orlinski Bracelet watch is also available, adorned by its new matching bracelet. Playing with shade and light, certain facets on the case, bezel and bracelet are adorned with diamonds, totalling a weight of 3.79 carats.
