Produced in collaboration with visual artist Richard Orlinski, Hublot’s creative partner since 2017, the new Classic Fusion Tourbillon features a 45mm diameter case cut out of sapphire, king gold or black ceramic and unveils ultra-modern open-work architecture. The collection comprises of three series, one for each of the three case materials, and each series is limited to 30 pieces each.
This skeleton calibre breaks with tradition thanks to its wide mechanism apertures that highlight its gears and tourbillon cage, sleek matte bars with inward-pointing angles, and a power reserve displayed on a ring over which a hand hovers. In addition to its stylised skeletal architecture, the manufacture manual-winding movement has a five-day power reserve while its sculptural tourbillon makes one revolution per minute. It has a transparent or black rubber strap, fitted with a deployant buckle clasp matching the case.
