A few days ago Hublot announced a new partnership with French artist, Richard Orlinski. First I’ve heard of this fella Orlinski and not really a clue who he is or what he does, but Google suggests he is a celebrated contemporary artist/sculptor. Yea, apparently he’s a big deal in some circles. No matter. Can say that the new Hublot Classic Fusion Aerofusion Chronograph Orlinski is a very cool looking piece, featuring a brand-new case 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. Solid!
Available in two brand-new models, each released in a limited edition of 200 pieces: One in titanium and the other in blue ceramic. The watch is a 45-mm “work of art” designed to be worn on the wrist. No word as to whether the awesome Orlinksi sculptures are also included or not.
