Hublot unveiled the collaboration with artist Carlos Cruz-Diez at Miami Art Week



Miami Art Week is a week that appre­ci­ates con­tem­po­rary art. It hosts var­i­ous dif­fer­ent events and with over 82,000 vis­i­tors, museum vis­i­tors and col­lec­tors com­ing from all over the world it is a highly impor­tant art fes­ti­val. The impor­tance of Miami Art Week was high­lighted once Swiss watch­maker Hublot returned with an incred­i­bly beau­ti­ful timepiece.

Hublot unveiled the col­lab­o­ra­tion with French/ Venezue­lan artist Car­los Cruz-Diez. This col­lab­o­ra­tion pro­duced the spec­tac­u­lar “Cruz-Diez Bi-Dimensional Research 1959–2015” hon­our­ing the artist who is held in such high regard in the world of art. Hublot used Car­los Cruz-Diez’s as inspi­ra­tion to take on the Latin mar­ket in an Hublot project aimed only at the South Amer­i­can market.

Hublot con­sid­ered every­thing, includ­ing a design for automotive-themed and some that are inspired by art such as Car­los Cruz-Diez. For those who are unfa­mil­iar with his art­work, Cruz-Diez’s work is known as “kinetic art”, using var­i­ous dif­fer­ent shapes to recon­sider one’s line of vision.

Many of those who are fanat­i­cal about his work are unused to the Diez’s mix­ture of art, sci­ence, neu­rol­ogy, cre­at­ing a dif­fer­ent inter­pre­ta­tion in brain. The dif­fer­ent inter­pre­ta­tion comes from the var­i­ous lights, colour and spa­tial aware­ness between his work. Hublot have now used some of the most pop­u­lar artis­tic themes in order to per­son­ify them using the lim­ited edi­tion Hublot brand.

The most influ­en­tial lim­ited edi­tion watch out of the col­lec­tion is the Hublot Clas­sic Fusion Tour­bil­lon Cruz-Diez time­piece fea­tur­ing a visu­ally stun­ning com­bi­na­tion of yel­low, orange, pur­ple, green and blue. The Replica watches fea­ture a beau­ti­ful 45mm can­vas to fea­ture the elec­tric colour combination.

One of the less exclu­sive Replica watches is the Hublot Class Fusion Cruz-Diez men’s Replica watches that also use the same face size. It is avail­able in a 19 carat gold, or a black ceramic. This design uses the use of colour again, but instead focus­ing on “mechan­i­cal chromo-interference” dials in order to sep­a­rate this model from the rest.

For those with a love for art and an eye for fash­ion the Hublot, Car­los Cruz-Diez com­bi­na­tion will send waves through the lux­ury time­piece world. It is the ulti­mate crossover of desire and luxury.
