In a continued collaboration with acclaimed French sculptor Richard Orlinski since 2017, Hublot introduces its latest masterpieces at LVMH Watch Week 2024 - the Classic Fusion Tourbillon Orlinski watches. Breaking away from the traditional mold, these timepieces showcase innovative Yellow Magic and Sky Blue ceramic cases, a first for the Classic Fusion Tourbillon Orlinski collection.
A Dazzling Display of Form and Color
The 45mm diameter and 12.05mm thick cases feature Orlinski's signature diamond-shaped facets, creating a visual symphony of light and shadow. The polished ceramic surface, adorned with sharp angles, embodies the 'Born Wild' spirit that is a recurring theme in Orlinski's work. The ceramic bezel, boasting 12 sides and six H-shaped titanium screws, adds an extra layer of sophistication.
Orlinski's Artistry Meets Horological Excellence
Renowned as the world's best-selling contemporary French artist since 2015, Orlinski expressed his pride in pushing the Classic Fusion's creative boundaries. The watches echo his 'Born Wild' spirit, a concept conceived in 2004 and now brought to life with Hublot's innovative approach. Orlinski's creative freedom is evident in every detail, from the open-worked dial to the power reserve indicator.
Yellow Magic and Sky Blue Elegance
The Yellow Magic variant exudes vibrancy with a matching yellow dial and black chapter ring, complemented by a black-plated stainless steel deployant clasp. In contrast, the Sky Blue version adopts a lighter aesthetic, featuring silver-toned hands, a sky-blue chapter ring, and a titanium deployant clasp. Both models run on the hand-wound HUB6021 skeleton movement, showcasing a mesmerizing tourbillon at 6 o'clock.
Limited Edition Luxury
Hublot restricts the production of the Classic Fusion Tourbillon Orlinski Yellow Magic and Sky Blue watches to a mere 30 pieces per colorway. Priced at $95,000 USD, these exclusive timepieces are not just watches but wearable works of art. Each watch comes with colored-matched smooth rubber straps, ensuring a seamless blend of style and comfort.
Hublot's collaboration with Richard Orlinski continues to redefine luxury watches, blending artistic flair with horological precision. The Classic Fusion Tourbillon Orlinski Yellow Magic and Sky Blue watches are not just accessories; they are statements of individuality and creativity, limited editions that reflect the pinnacle of both artistic and watchmaking excellence.
