French artist and pop culture standout Richard Orlinski joins forces with Hublot to create a luxury watch in the image of his striking polygonal artwork. Rendered in matte blue ceramic, the 2018 Hublot Classic Fusion Aerofusion Chronograph Richard Orlinski 525.EX.0179.RX.ORL18 is a 250-piece limited edition pop art gallery for your wrist.
Hublot's Big Bang Orlinski was a trailblazer; the Classic Fusion Aerofusion Orlinski translates the signature style of the artist to a Hublot's fastest rising star: the Classic Fusion collection.
Matte blue ceramic offers a striking appearance, Orlinkski's trademark hard angles, and near invulnerability to scratches. Crown and chronograph pushers in black ceramic are just as durable, and the Hublot trademark "H" pattern bezel bolts are rendered in black to offer contrast against the blue base.
An Hublot skeleton dial ("Aero," in Hublese) includes dramatic secondary blue elements and hard contrast between silvered hands, silver indices, silver registers, and a black caliber base. A twin register chronograph design keeps the dial clean, and the date hides discreetly at six o'clock.
Hublot employs a high grade Swiss Sellita SW300 base with a Dubois Depraz chronograph module. The movement winds automatically, features a 42-hour power reserve, and includes setting refinements such as a quickset date and hacking (stop seconds). This Hublot Classic Fusion Aerofusion features 50-meter water resistance.
The Hublot Classic Fusion Aerofusion Chronograph Orlinski is encased in 45mm of blue ceramic surrounding a skeleton dial on a black rubber strap. Functions include hours, minutes, seconds, date, and chronograph. The watch also measures 14.8mm in thickness and 54.6mm from lug-to-lug.
