CLASSIC FUSION ORLINSKI

Classic Fusion Orlinski King Gold
An exceptional marriage of art and watchmaking in the most sublime materials

Playing with light and shade, the latest Classic Fusion Orlinski series is sculpted in the aesthetic signature of artist Richard Orlinski, including its faceted dial. Designed for those who prefer the very finest watches, the 40mm case is available in titanium or King Gold, transforming the piece into a jeweller's objet d'art set with brilliant-cut diamonds.

 

No fewer than six Classic Fusion Orlinski watches have been created as a continuation of the artistic and technological alliance between Richard Orlinski and Hublot, following on from the Aerofusion Chronograph and Tourbillon. At the sculptor's behest, this series has been designed and developed on a smaller scale to satisfy a new clientele. Symbolising the characteristic folds in his often monumental works, edges, bevels and facets have been miniaturised with horological precision to create mirror effects on the dial. The understated strap in matt black rubber creates an arresting contrast, all the more pronounced on four of the six models whose diamond-set cases create a jewellery effect.

“We adopt a pioneering and exploratory approach. We thrive on challenges. The success of the Aerofusion Chronograph and the Tourbillon has opened up new avenues. These elegant Classic Fusions turn wearing a watch into an everyday art form.”

Ricardo Guadalupe

CEO OF HUBLOT

What better than the stone with the highest refractive index to reflect the mirror-polished finish typical of the plastic artist's work? On four of the timepieces, the bezel – a dodecagon which has characterised the creative partnership since 2017 – is set with 54 diamonds and sits on a case which is either fully set with 210 diamonds or partially set with 112 diamonds. Free from precious stones, the other two watches exude a more subtle light, with the accent on the pure lines, the graduated light and shade of the materials, and the sharp-angled forms characteristic of Richard Orlinski's sculptures.

 

A lover of all kinds of art and a vocal advocate of its accessibility to all, Richard Orlinski creates intelligible works and installs them in open-sky settings (Courchevel, Deauville, etc.). Orlinski works to decompartmentalise the modes of artistic expression and challenge convention. As the creative force behind these six Classic Fusion Orlinski watches, here he addresses new audiences, women and lovers of timeless stones or sculpture. The Aerofusion Chronograph and Tourbillon attest to the harmonious relationship between watchmaking and art, conveying a subtle message. It makes as much sense to wear art on the wrist as jewellery.

“There is a real dynamic of sharing that has been established at Hublot. It is a modern brand with a truly innovative spirit…What brings it all together is our desire to challenge convention.”
