Developed in collaboration with with late Venezuelan artist Carlos Cruz-Diez the new Classic Fusion Cruz-Diez by Hublot features an array of colours in constant motion, changing in potentially infinite combinations with the passing of time.
Beyond the purely visual effect, the horological colour composition changes and evolves with the passing of the hours, minutes and seconds, mirroring other works by the late artist, a Master of in the field of Kinetic and Optical art, an art form that places the spectator’s perception at the centre of the piece. The watch was unveiled on 5th December at the Espace Expression gallery in Miami, in the presence of the artist’s family.
The Classic Fusion’s dial is designed on two levels; the hour hand sits on the first level, while the minute hand is on the second, each driving the rotation of a transparent disc featuring printed black lines. This system causes the pattern of colours to evolve every second over a 24-hour period. The piece very much designed to be worn also features the artist’s metallic signature on the case-back displays the MHUB1100.H3 automatic movement beating at a frequency of 4Hz and offering a power reserve of 42 hours. The calfskin leather strap and the box extend the optical experience in pursuit of an eternal present.
