Hublot Classic Fusion Series Orinski Red Ceramic Limited Edition Watch

HUBLOT has applied bright red ceramics to the classic fusion series Orinsky red ceramic limited edition watch, which has given this watch a new look. Red symbolizes enthusiasm and vitality, and perfectly echoes the first sculpture by the famous French artist Richard Orlinski called Born Wild Crocodile. This sculpture, created in 2004, uses bright red as the main color, giving a strong visual impact. Since then, red has become an iconic element of Olinski’s wildlife sculptures.

Wild red ceramic
Red is an unforgettable and contradictory color. It often symbolizes two opposing extreme emotions, such as love and hate, courage and timidity, and hostility and enthusiasm. Just like red, watches can evoke strong emotions.

The Hublot watch shined at the Baselworld Watch & Jewellery Show 2018 held a few months ago, successfully launching a new colorful ceramic material, once again highlighting the brand spirit of continuous innovation. From the initial idea to mass production, Hublot has spent four years of research and development to master this advanced technology. This kind of colored ceramics has achieved comprehensive innovation in terms of material itself and production process, and far exceeds the traditional ceramics in terms of hardness (compared with the traditional ceramic’s 1200 HV2, its hardness can reach an amazing 1500 HV1). Hublot uses high-temperature and high-pressure sintering technology to abandon the traditional firing process. This completely self-developed new technology was developed in cooperation with the Hublot Material Studio and the R & D department, presenting a fusion of ceramic material technology and aesthetic concepts.

As a world-renowned contemporary artist, Orinsky has integrated his angular design style into Hublot since 2017, fully interpreting Hublot’s ‘fused art’ brand concept. Orinsky gave these models their iconic three-dimensional multi-faceted structure, which is distinguished by subtle changes in the angle of the cut face and the edges. The classic fusion series Orinski red ceramic limited edition watch continues the iconic style of this outstanding artist, elegantly blending three-dimensional smooth lines with polishing technology, showing the charm of its sculptures.

The Watch Dial That We Chased In Those Years

When we usually talk about a watch, the most easily overlooked is its dial, but the dial is actually a face of a watch. It is human nature to love beautiful faces. Therefore, each brand will devote its huge energy to developing unique dials. The noodles sell well, and it seems to have become a norm in the watch industry. The dial can not only display functions, but also a stage for showing various and beautiful craftsmanship and novel ideas. In addition to the traditional micro-painted enamel and filigree enamel, the micro-painted oil painting has also joined the ranks of the dial creativity. In addition, there are amazing gem inlays, Guilloché machine-engraved decoration, special shapes, and fantasy colors. Let’s take a look at the unique charm of these fantasy dials together.

   Anbersen is an independent watchmaker brand. Its Poker enamel model has a stunning effect. There is no pointer or scale on the dial, and the entire dial is covered by a stunningly vivid enamel micropaint. This The theme of the poker game was created by American artist Cassius Marcellus Coolidge. It depicts a group of dogs with a look like human beings sitting around a table playing poker. The strokes are so delicate that even the coat of the dog is visible. The only time display of the watch is a window at 6 o’clock, which is indicated by the Arabic numerals on the lower dial. Six of the even time scales are displayed in a flush flush and matching branding theme.

  Audemars Piguet’s creative millennial dial design for the brand in that year sounded a beautiful spring rhythm, pulsating the power of time between the jumping keys. Whether it is the same linear Roman numeral scale version or the dial center and bezel-paved diamond version, it is well integrated with the piano key design at the edge of the dial, or it is deep and quiet or exciting. The artistic atmosphere is simple and comfortable lines. It is vividly expressed in the colors matched with black and white.

Whether you admit it or not, Beijing’s Athena 38mm gold watch definitely represents the highest artistic standard in China. The main plate, upper plate, swing plate, fork plate and dial of the movement are all 18K. Crafted in gold and embossed. The specially designed upper splint and dial have increased the thickness, enabling the sculptor to create a deep relief with a net depth of nearly 1.5 mm, to obtain a more vivid three-dimensional effect.

On the dial, Athena, the ancient Greek legend of the god of peace, is armed with a spear in his left arm and a dove of peace in his right hand, with a firm and serene look. The Sphinx emblem on her helmet, the four arrows staggered back and forth in the quiver, and the expressive round eyes of the dove (double eyelids under a 100x magnifying glass) are all magical. The upper splint on the back of the watch is engraved with an angel pouring wine.

Breguet’s shell carving has always been world-famous. This Naples 18K white gold watch is set with 40 diamonds on the bezel (about 2.42 carats). Shell relief has very strict requirements for the sculptor, and due to the very fragile nature of the shell itself, it will fail if it is not careful. The sculptor must not be competent without decades of carving skills. To match, the chocolate alligator leather strap is especially selected.

Although Cartier has never lacked creativity in the design of the watch, I always think that this Santos Triple 100 that can be turned over is the most breakthrough. This watch is the first time to use a rotating dial mechanism combined with a skeleton movement. Just rotate the crown You can change the dial of three different designs, bringing a completely new perspective. While the crown is turning, the built-in 18K white gold movable prism will be activated at any time. With the help of the small gear system, the dial can gradually change direction.

It starts with the classic 12 Roman numeral scales, then turns into a checkerboard pattern of diamonds and black sapphires, and finally a delicate tiger head pattern. The first design of this watch industry is complicated, and it takes more than 40 hours to make it. It has obtained patent rights. The dial is studded with diamonds totalling 7.6 carats and is limited to 20 pieces.

Although Gérald Genta has now been acquired by Bvlgari, its previous models can definitely be described as shocking. Just like this ArenPC GMT watch cleverly uses overlapping disc shapes and rich colors. All the sophisticated functions such as the perpetual calendar, standard time zone and so on present a beautiful symmetrical shape on the dial. The upper dial uses the main colors of red, black and white alternately, and the dazzling gold of the lower dial is revealed in the hollowed out dots. While highlighting the main geometric design of the circle, it adds a mysterious color to the models. The time scale is also symmetrical with four Arabic numerals 2, 4, 8, and 10, and the elegant and pure white hands stand out against the gorgeous dial. The titanium case and platinum bezel’s mixed material case retains its unique notch design.

Glashütte
Original (Glashuti) PanoInverse XL watch does not follow the general design of the model with the dial completely covering the movement, instead the necessary display of the model with the eccentric small circle design instead of the general dial, in an attempt to make the movement every One part is clearly visible directly under the mirror. Other elements of Glashütte’s traditional watchmaking symbols in the movement, such as gold sleeves and blue steel screws, are even more dazzling on the silver plywood. Under the watch’s unobtrusive design, the hand-carved decorative pattern of the fixed wheel bridge and the wonderful double gooseneck trimming are undoubtedly the focus of the movement. The balance wheel oscillates regularly under the fixed bridge, showing the time in the most charming way. Every ingenious craftsmanship gives PanoInverse the most unparalleled artistic beauty.

The Jaquet Droz retrograde date and astrology series creatively uses twelve constellations as the embellishment. One of the numbers on the hour and minute hand display is no longer a classical and elegant Roman numeral, but replaced by a constellation symbol. And from the moment the morning light appeared, the light disappeared, along with 15 diamonds, on the dial in the night, the light shone brightly. Each constellation corresponds to its own magic. Everyone has their own unique destiny. Every day, between 5 and 10 o’clock, corresponding to the moving course of the diamond grain on the orbit corresponding to the retrograde date display orbit. Astrological chart showing lions, aries, and twins.

Omega’s 18K yellow gold watch is definitely a classic retro style. Collectors especially like to talk about the classic styling elements of Omega antiques, namely the so-called ‘curls’, ‘fly-shaped scale’, ‘gossip face’ All have been re-interpreted on the watch. In addition, the built-in 2403 coaxial escapement observatory automatic movement also has a special oscillation frequency of 25,200 times per hour. This watch was launched for the Beijing Olympics, with a limit of 88 pieces per day. Facts have proved that this watch will indeed set off a wave of treasure during the Olympic Games.

One of the most distinctive features of the Panerai watch is the crown bridge, and the other is its unique sandwich dial, and of course, the unique elements of those dials. This Luminor 1950 Tourbillon has a simple dial and chocolate color. The first impression that people gave was that it was a heavyweight model equipped with Panerai’s highest-grade self-produced tourbillon movement-P2005. Lightweight titanium case with dual time function (GMT). It seems that the extremely low output and the expensive price really belong only to those brave hermits.

Piaget’s Limelight Paris-New York watch, this Parisian architectural watch is crafted in 18K white gold, with exquisite watchmaking and jewellery craftsmanship, paved with 587 round diamonds. The flip-top case that covers the charcoal gray dial is surrounded by two pointed Parisian Eiffel Tower hollow shapes to form an hourglass, especially the 6,000 finely polished white gold beads in the hourglass that swing freely with the swing of the arm Movement, just as it shows the passage of time.

Patek Philippe’s filigree enamel watch has always been regarded as the best in the collection industry, and this set of 4 5077 type filigree enamel plates ‘Bird Paradise’ has been called the best by collectors. The best.

These four water birds are vividly and vividly described by Patek Philippe, and countless collectors have dreams. These four models are equipped with Patek Philippe’s 240-type Pearl Tuo automatic movement and have a 950 platinum case. Due to limited production of 5 sets, it has always been the object of competition in the auction market.

Rado (radar) this brightly colored dial, when launched, can be described as countless other people dumped. The dial, mirror, case, and strap are perfectly integrated, with almost no protruding timing buttons. Suddenly, the intervention of a strong color broke this perfect fusion, like a tremor of the soul. The flowing green comet pattern on the dial adds a sense of leisure and casualness. The green garnet closely surrounds the timing window and the date window, exuding the glorious mystery. The metallic dial and sapphire crystal seem to cover the body with a colored coat. The wonderful blend of multiple shades forms this strong and inspiring rich glory.

Ulysse Nardin (Athens) has always been proud of its filigree enamel dial, especially the sailboat pattern is its masterpiece. The Achille on the dial is the fourth destroyer named after the ancient Greek mythological hero Achilles. It has 64 to 80 cannons, belongs to the Royal Navy, and is commanded by Captain Richard King. In the Spanish battle in Trafalgar, Spain, the Leech Fleet belonging to the USS Azili fought a fierce battle with the French and French Fleet, and ended with a British victory. The watch painted on a filigree enamel dial depicts the image of the Achilles in front of Fort Rochefort. Gold wire with a diameter of only 0.06 mm and a total length of more than one meter was used. With more than 80 hours of working hours and 30 baking procedures, the hook was used to draw multiple layers of the warship, showing an extraordinary sense of body.
