Hublot Classic Fusion Takashi Murakami All Black

Hublot’s no holds barred approach to watch design has attracted some of the most popular artists of our time to the brand – both as customers as well as active collaborators. Joining the likes of Richard Orlinski, Sang Bleu, Shepard Fairey and Tristan Eaton is celebrated Japanese graphic artist Takashi Murakami. Takashi-san was very open about turning down multiple requests for collaborations with others for he would settle for nothing less than a clean sheet and absolutely no restrictions on how and what he can do.

The trademark smiling flowers design of Takashi Murakami is featured right at the very centre of the Hublot Classic Fusion Takashi Murakami All Black.

The result? It’s the Hublot Classic Fusion Takashi Murakami All Black, a watch with his signature “Smiling Flower” concept. Realized with an animated backdrop that rotates at the slightest movement of the wrist, there are twelve stylized black flower petals, plated in black and set with 456 black diamonds.

The twelve petals of Takashi-san’s flowers rotate and swivel and the slightest motion of the wrist, bringing life into this black-diamond-set horological artwork.

If you look closely, the domed, black-diamond-set centre has a big, smiley face with two eyes and a large, open mouth. Combine that with Hublot’s signature “All Black” look for one of the most artistic luxury watches we’ll get to see in 2021.

In line with our expectations, Hublot has brought its best form by launching technically and aesthetically novel timepieces at the 2021 edition of the LVMH Watch Week… But there surely are more to come from the Nyon-based manufacturer soon!
