Just Replica Watches — During the last Miami Art-Basel in November 2015, the world famous Design District was the meeting point for the artistic collaboration between the acclaimed kinetic artist Carlos Cruz-Diez and Hublot Fake Watches.
Carlos Cruz-Diez, 92, is recognized worldwide for his Op Art and kinetic murals, spread around iconic museums and cities in many countries and has helped the scientific advance of graphic design in colleges and universities, while keeping workshops in both Caracas and Paris.
The intensive use of the “Moiré Effect”, which produces a sense of movement by means of the juxtaposition of two or more different designs in texture and color above a fixed surface, gave Hublot the perfect artistic target to begin this outstanding collaboration. Cruz-Diez and Hublot agreed to employ the masterpiece of Op Art, Chromointerference (1964), in a limited edition series of cheap fake watches.
Hublot begins the collaboration with Cruz-Diez in a Classic Fusion case in 45 mm, available in 18 karat King Gold limited to 40 pieces, in black ceramic produced in only 50 pieces and a platinum 950 model with a Manufacture Hublot Tourbillon movement that is limited to 10 pieces only. The dials in all these pieces have specific designs with multicolor animations, based on “Mechanical Chromointerference” that rotates on its own axis once per minute. The visual elements allow for complex derivations of the design that change every 12 hours while time and seconds are indicated by slender gold hands. A “semi-matte” crocodile leather wrist band with a deployant buckle in the same case material closes this beautiful artistic concept.
The King Gold and Ceramic versions of the Hublot Classic Fusion Cruz-Diez have a Hublot automatic mechanical caliber HUB1100, visible through the sapphire crystal built in the back. The platinum 950 version, on the other hand, has a manual wound, manufacture mechanical caliber HUB6012 with a 60 seconds tourbillon.
