In a rare collaboration, Hublot and artist Richard Orlinski partnered to create a watch collection designed by Orlinski. He’s known for his Wild Kong gorilla and crocodile sculptures, crafted using geometric angles and futuristic styles. Their newest collaboration takes the Classic Fusion Tourbillon 5-Day Power Reserve watch to new artistic heights.
In this version, the 45mm watch is totally skeletonized and see-through, allowing a grand view of the highly sculpted manual-wind HUB6021 manufacture movement and bridges. The complex caliber consists of 183 finely finished components and is equipped with a one-minute tourbillon.
The transparent sapphire case, faceted bezel and the case-to-bracelet lugs are all sculpted — requiring hundreds of hours of machining and polishing to reinforce the artist’s style. It is finished with a transparent rubber strap.
Price: $137,000 in polished sapphire
