Swiss watchmaker Hublot and Richard Orlinski combine their know-how to create the Classic Fusion Aerofusion Chronograph Orlinski, which brings to life the artist’s graphic universe. The watch features a brand-new design playing with angles and reflections. Ridges and facets on the watch reflect each other, from the case to the bezel, and from the push buttons to the hands. As one who appreciates exceptional expertise, the artist has designed a watch on the frontier of vintage and neo-futurist styles, just like his works inspired by the Pop Art movement. Pointing to the future, the hand of the watch becomes a symbolic metaphor for Richard Orlinski: as it never stops turning, it embodies infinity. Inspired by the same attention to detail and driven by the same passion, together, the contemporary artist and Hublot have designed an original creation, by pushing the boundaries of traditional watchmaking expertise. This is a creation where time becomes a work of art, and where art becomes an expression of time! The Hublot x Richard Orlinski watch’s dial has been cast in sapphire crystal, while the case, crown, bezel and push buttons also feature the facets. The visionary design of Richard Orlinski presented a major challenge for the Hublot Manufacture: the work of Richard Orlinski – a three-dimensional fold in the case – had to be modelled before it was cut from Rose Gold. These two materials feature one of the artist’s iconic signatures: mirror polishing.
