The Art of Fusion: 5 Artists Who Collaborated with Hublot

The best part about these brand ambassadors, who are usually our idols, get to collaborate with the luxury watch.

It is always a good idea to have more collaborations and create unique timepieces. These will effectively appeal to different consumers. Today, we will talk about the beautiful watches that Hublot, a prestigious Swiss luxury watch brand, has created in partnership with its famous ambassadors. Check this out!
- Richard Orlinski
Imagine a famous sculptor collaborating with an excellent Swiss watch brand. We were at the edge of our seats the first time we heard about this. When the collection came out, watch enthusiasts and connoisseurs deemed it a work of art. The Hublot watch from this collaboration is called the Classic Fusion Aerofusion Chronograph Orlinski, which looks exactly like a small version of Richard Orlinski’s sculpture that tells time.
Richard Orlinski is a popular artist whose work revolves around the theme, “Born Wild.” He usually works with industrial materials. Today, Richard Orlinski is the best-selling French artist alive. Richard Orlinski started collaborating with Hublot in 2017. What came out of this collaboration are two limited edition watches. Each has 200 pieces made of titanium polished to achieve a mirror-like finish and ceramic cases in blue. This collection highly resembles Richard Orlinski’s art pieces, especially upon seeing its case, bezel, push-buttons, and crown.
- Romero Britto
Hublot shows no signs of stopping as they yet again collaborated with another world-famous artist. Romero Britto is an artist popular for art infused with elements of pop art, cubism, and graffiti. This Brazilian artist creates colorful and optimistic art. Romero Britto is not only a painter—he is also a sculptor and a serigrapher! He is also a philanthropist. His positive art is his way of contributing to the betterment of the people. He creates positive and vibrant art to help people feel good and become positive as well.
With this work, you can just be excited about how Romero Britto and Hublot’s collaboration will look like! Hublot, together with the Brazilian artist, created the Hublot Classic Fusion Enamel Britto. This collection is also a limited edition, with Hublot creating only 50 timepieces in a case made of ceramic and 30 timepieces made of platinum. The unique thing about this watch is its detailed champlevé enamel renderings, which highly remind you of Romero Britto’s art style. This watch comes with an alligator leather strap in black. Hublot and Romero Britto united again and collaborated for the Only Watch auction in 2015.
- Tristan Eaton & Hush
Tristan Eaton and Hush are two artists who are famous for their street art. Hublot has collaborated with these artists to make an interesting representation of the United States East Coast and West Coast love for Fame and Fortune. You must have heard of the American Dream. Tristan Eaton and Hush depict vividly Fortune and Fame. This anticipating collaboration was presented in Geneva.
Tristan Eaton depicted the East-coast and fortune. The result? A sophisticated bronze watch depicting Wall Street’s Charging Bull. This 45mm watch is called the Classic Fusion Bronze that has a case with a brushed-bronze finish with gold-plated details on the dial. The case back has a design inspired by financial themes.
Another talented street artist, Hush, on the other hand, depicted Fame on the West Coast. In partnership with Hush, Hublot released the Spirit of Big Bang West Coast Ceramic in white and black. Hush got his inspiration from the Hollywood image.
- Maxime Buchi
The world is the canvas for this Swiss designer, as he is also a creative director. Maxime Buchi is also the puppeteer when it comes to art and creatives for magazines, clothing brands, and studios. He is also the head of a creative agency called the Sang Bleu.
What came out of this interesting partnership of Hublot and Maxime Buchi is a limited-edition Hublot Big Bang Sang Bleu. The luxury watch brand created only 200 pieces of the state-of-the-art watch. Hublot and Sang Bleu took the importance of “fusion,” where they make sure to have a well-integrated combination of techniques, materials, and cultures.
The Hublot Big Bang Sang Bleu is a watch made of titanium coupled with composite resin in black. This material wonderfully reflects Maxime Buchi’s signature tattoo aesthetic. The timepiece uses octagonal discs coated with rhodium to point at the time. This watch is the most acclaimed by critics among all Hublot collaborations.
- Chen Man
The New York Times called her the Annie Leibovitz of China. A photographer and visual artist, Chen Man worked with many magazines, such as Elle, Marie Claire, Harper’s Bazaar, Esquire, and more. She is an in-demand celebrity photographer who has worked with artists like Rihanna, Victoria Beckham, Nicole Kidman, and more. Artists just love her hyper-real portraits style.
