2019 NOVELTIES: Hublot works with pop artist Richard Orlinski on sculptural red ceramic Classic Fusion

Classic Fusion Aerofusion Chronograph Orlinski Red Ceramic

Baselworld 2018 was the first time that Hublot revealed it had mastered the fiendishly complicated technique of producing ceramic watch parts in a vibrant red color.

It will profit from the breakthrough in 2019 with the launch of a Classic Fusion Chronograph Orlinski made almost entirely from the watchmaker’s patented red ceramic.

The watch was designed in conjunction with Hublot brand ambassador Richard Orlinski, a pop artist and sculptor.

Sculptor Richard Orlinski is a Hublot brand ambassador.

 

It took Hublot four years to develop the red ceramic from concept to production. Its vibrancy and shine make it a perfect material for the Hublot and Orlinski partnership, both of whom use signature angular designs in their work.

The 45mm Classic Fusion Chronograph Orlinski Ceramic is released in a limited edition of 200. It houses the HUB1155 self-winding skeleton chronograph movement.

Retailers will have their first chance to see the watch, which is likely to be sold only in Hublot boutiques, at a presentation in Geneva in January.
