When Hublot unveiled the first watch sculpted by Richard Orlinski in Miami in December 2017, the public reaction was unanimous: this was the first ever Orlinski artwork to tell the time! 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, and he can pride himself on being the bestselling contemporary French artist in the world.
Hublot and Richard Orlinski are now beginning a new phase in their partnership by presenting four versions of the Classic Fusion Orlinski Titanium fitted with a new integrated metallic bracelet. Every watchmaker knows that it is a tremendous challenge to design this type of bracelet. You must ensure that the bracelet is correctly integrated mechanically and aesthetically to the watch case and that it can comfortably adapt to every morphology. 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.
