Hublot - Classic Fusion Aerofusion Chronograph Orlinski México

Hublot Classic Fusion Aerofusion Chronograph Orlinski México

On the occasion of the SIAR in Mexico, Hublot and Richard Orlinski dressed their faceted timepiece in green ceramic - a color paying tribute to independence and hope.

Richard Orlinski, one of the world’s bestselling contemporary artists, is known for his love of colour and his sculptures display a bright and eclectic colour chart. For the first time Orlinski decided to use green, this time for the new Classic Fusion Aerofusion Chronograph Orlinski México, exclusively created for the SIAR (Salon International Alta Relojeria) show in Mexico. Marked by bevelled look with edges and facets that capture the light, this watch confirms its original design in vivid green.

Available in only 30 pieces, this special edition incorporating the colours of the Mexican flag is designed as a piece of art to be worn on the wrist. A key feature of the watch is the case with 12 facets in green ceramic, created by Orlinski using a three-dimensional cambering technique. The Mexican flag heavily inspires the watch – the green case symbolises hope and independence, the red second hand on the dial evokes the union.

Moreover the HUB1155 skeleton self-winding chronograph movement bears the eagle and snake featured on the Mexican flag and interpreted by Orlinski. In addition, a new sculpture featuring an eagle and a snake by the artist were unveiled at the SIAR Mexico show, with a silhouette of this creation included as a decoration on the watch. The two animals embody ‘Earth’ and ‘Heaven’ and remind us that: “while struggle is a necessary stage in existence to become aware of the reality of the world, it cannot be the goal that lies in the union between beings and, above all, between a being and themself.”

“It’s an honour for Hublot, as we love Mexico so much, to share with friends the work of Richard Orlinski. An artist whose bestiary of sculptures already features the emblems marking the power of the Mexican flag—the snake and the eagle. Is this chance or fate?” said Ricardo Guadalupe, CEO of Hublot.

The SIAR Mexico show marks the moment when Richard Orlinski brings his graphic universe to the very heart of Mexico. “I’m delighted to have designed the new Classic Fusion Orlinski Mexico with the Hublot teams. For me, this colourful land was a real source of inspiration and made me want to create a collection of sculptures celebrating Mexico”, said the French artist. He is part of the Hublot family alongside Maxime Büchi, Lapo Elkann, Pelé, Lang Lang, Bar Refaeli, Usain Bolt and Dustin Johnson.

The brand

From the outset, Hublot has embodied design and innovation that differ markedly from the established watchmaking order. With the impetus provided by Jean-Claude Biver, by 2004 these values had already become the basis of a new DNA, leading the brand to develop particularly audacious timepieces – most of them with a highly-developed sporting aspect.
