Hublot and Richard Orlinski joined forces to celebrate Mexico, using the powerful symbolism of green that represents independence to create the Classic Fusion Aerofusion Chronograph Orlinski México.
Richard Orlinski, one of the world’s bestselling contemporary artists is known for his love of colour.
His famous sculptures display a bright and eclectic colour chart. For the first time Orlinski decided to use green, this time in the creation of the new Classic Fusion Aerofusion Chronograph Orlinski México.
The Hublot Classic Fusion Aerofusion Chronograph has a distinctive and original style, marked by bevelled look with edges and facets that capture the light. The timepiece now confirms its original design in vivid green.
Capturing the trend of ‘going green’ the Hublot Classic Fusion Aerofusion Chronograph Orlinski México is available in only 30 pieces incorporating the colours of the Mexican flag.
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 and the HUB1155 skeleton self-winding chronograph movement bears the eagle and snake featured on the Mexican flag and interpreted by Orlinski who has previously featured these creatures in his bestiary.
