CLASSIC FUSION AEROFUSION CHRONOGRAPH ORLINSKI MEXICO
FLYING THE FLAG!
Taking inspiration from the Mexican motto, “upwards and onwards“, Hublot pursues its quest to combine materials and take new steps forward, as seen in this limited edition watch.
The colour green on the Mexican flag symbolises the nation’s independence, won in the 19th century, and explains its inclusion on the brand new Classic Fusion Aerofusion Chronograph Orlinski Mexico. The flag’s red colour can be found, too, on the central lacquered second hand. On the watch’s sapphire crystal an eagle and a snake are shown with the signature angular facets found in sculpture by Richard Orlinski. Hublot launched the timepiece during the recent SIAR, the Mexican trade fair dedicated to watchmaking. This is the second model the brand has produced with the contemporary French artist. Here, the 45mm-wide ceramic case topped with a twelve-sided bezel is the ideal canvas for his art. This limited edition of just 30 watches features Orlinski’s famous three-dimensional folds. The combination of shapes and choice of colours help shape the highly graphic and sculptural design.
The time elements, date and short-time measurements on the chronograph are powered by an automatic movement. The calibre HUB1155 is partly visible through the open-work dial and provides 42 hours of power reserve.
The Classic Fusion Aerofusion Chronograph Orlinski Mexico comes with a supple, black rubber strap with a folding clasp, reinforcing the striking personality of this numbered special edition that has all the assets needed to delight collectors.
