Hublot - Hublot launches two NFTs with Takashi Murakami

Hublot Hublot launches two NFTs with Takashi Murakami

To coincide with the international tradeshow, Watches & Wonders, Hublot and Takashi Murakami will be presenting two NFT digital works, inspired by the Hublot Classic Fusion Takashi Murakami watches

Hublot and Takashi Murakami are pushing back the boundaries of artistic expression by presenting two NFT digital works. These are inspired by the Hublot Classic Fusion Takashi Murakami All Black and the Classic Fusion Takashi Murakami Sapphire Rainbow, the first two watches launched jointly by the Swiss watchmaker and the great Japanese artist in 2021. These two limited editions of 200 and 100 pieces respectively were sold out in just a few days.

This new phase in the artistic collaboration developed with Takashi Murakami is in the form of two static NFTs featuring the smiling flower with its mischievous smile, the iconic theme of Murakami’s work and his Superflat artistic movement. The first NFT based on the All Black version, is a limited edition of 216, while the second, which will recreate the colours of the highly exclusive Sapphire Rainbow version, will be a limited edition of 108. These NFT digital works are mainly intended for the current owners of these two limited-edition watches, to whom they will be offered under certain conditions explained under. The current owners of these watches shall actively claim the NFT as from 1st April 2022 and no later than 25th April 2022. If they claim and wish, these watch owners may then receive their free NFT in their eWallet. In May, Hublot will then open a page on a decentralised non-fungible token marketplace, where owners may exchange their NFTs.

The launch of the Hublot Classic Fusion Takashi Murakami NFTs will be supported by a very arty promotional campaign, based on the principles of guerrilla marketing. After being presented at Watches & Wonders, the watchmaking fair in Geneva, posters will go up secretively in London and New York and giant light projections will illuminate iconic buildings.

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, which is currently headed by Ricardo Guadalupe - its CEO since 2012, to develop particularly audacious timepieces – most of them with a highly-developed sporting aspect.
