The collaboration between Hublot and Richard Orlinski, a French artist and an ambassador of the Swiss luxury manufacture, continues this year with a new chronograph model, the Classic Fusion Chronograph Orlinski.
While previous editions of this collection had a striking “sculptured” dial, here the 41mm case, crafted from sandblasted titanium, is distinguished by geometric facets. With its unique dodecagonal shape – the signature mark of collaboration which started in 2017 – the bezel transforms into a polygon. It frames the black dial with central stop seconds and two subdials arranged at 9 and 3 o’clock.
At the heart of the Classic Fusion Chronograph Orlinski ticks Hublot’s self-winding caliber HUB1153 which beats at a frequency of 28,800 vph and delivers a power reserve of 42 hours. It comes to life through the sapphire case back, with the partially skeletonized rotor displaying the brand’s logo taking center stage.
Pricing for the Hublot Classic Fusion Chronograph Orlinski is marked at $18,200 for the full titanium iteration and at $14,600 for the variant attached to a rubber strap.

Hublot 1153 ? The 1143 was a 2892 ETA.
I can’t see a in house movement here with a 42 hour power reserve. $18K US – what a joke. Day light robbery if you ask me for a brand started by Biver
