Hublot and Takashi Murakami have unveiled the second timepiece in their collaboration, the Classic Fusion Takashi Murakami Sapphire Rainbow, a watch inspired by his iconic flower designs. The new watch, still based on the smiling flower as a central theme of Japanese artwork and culture for centuries past, has moved from black to color with transparent effects.
“This partner ship with Hublot has enabled me to express my creativity in what is a totally new medium for me. The mastery of the watchmaker’s technicians has opened up new fields of possibilities for my inspiration. The result is this new watch in the colours of the rainbow.”
This unique drop is geared towards contemporary art collectors looking to add to their collection. Hublot used the HUB1214 calibre, sans the stopwatch function. The Classic Fusion Takashi Murakami Sapphire Rainbow will be limited to 100 numbered pieces.
