CLASSIC FUSION AEROFUSION CHRONOGRAPH ORLINSKI
At Hublot, the fusion of materials is exalted further through the marriage of styles. This new partnership sets itself apart through its structure cut like a diamond. Focus!
Richard Orlinski has conceived his artistic world around the concept Born Wild, focusing on the idea that violence existing in nature is vital and can be transformed into positive emotions. His XXL-sized creations converge around a staggering faceted bestiary enhanced by a mirror-polished finish and vibrant colours. Showcased in some 90 galleries around the world, the French artist also seduced Hublot. Classic Fusion Aerofusion Chronograph Orlinski is the fruit of their first collaboration. The model marries the features and finery of Hublot timepieces with the creator’s emblematic style. As such, we can admire the artist’s touch on the 45 mm-diameter cases, proposed in titanium and blue ceramic, as well as on the chronograph’s bezel, crown and push-pieces. The relief created is magnified even more by the absent dial. Bridges and geartrains help fashion this highly-graphical composition by offering an ever-so original scenescape of shadow and light.
Time data, embracing hours, minutes, seconds, date and short-cycle time measurement, is symphonized by a self-winding mechanical chronograph movement offering a power reserve of 45 hours. What’s more, the HUB1155 calibre reveals itself through the sapphire-crystal caseback.
Classic Fusion Aerofusion Chronograph Orlinski watches are proposed as a 200-piece limited series. To underline the material effects even more, these timepieces espouse a sleekly-smooth black rubber strap closed by a folding clasp.
Price: CHF16,900 (Titanium) – CHF17,900 (Ceramic) www.hublot.com
