Hublot CEO Ricardo Guadalupe welcomed Swiss replica watches and art aficionados alike for the opening reception for Cruz-Diez Bi-Dimensional Research 1959-2015 in Miami’s Design District in anticipation the Art Basel 2015. To honour this partnership, Hublot unveiled three limited edition Classic Fusion Cruz-Diez timepieces.
Guests were invited to join Ricardo Guadalupe and Carlos Cruz-Diez for an intimate cocktail event at the Espace Expression Gallery in Miami’s Design District. During the reception, Hublot unveiled the limited edition Classic Fusion Cruz-Diez timepieces to attending guests – previously launched exclusively in Venezuela – which marked the first time the pieces have been seen abroad. It is through this partnership that Hublot continues to fuse the worlds of cheap Hublot replica watchmaking, art, color and movement.
The Franco-Venezuelan artist Carlos Cruz-Diez is one of the leading figures and key representatives of kinetic-optic art, the artistic movement which calls for “an awareness of the instability of reality” by placing movement and space at the heart of its works. In his works, colors are perpetually being formed and broken down before our eyes, suggesting that color is not an established truth, but rather an unstable reality which is continually changing in time and space.
Ricardo Guadalupe, CEO of Hublot, shared: “It is an honour to be here tonight with this revolutionary artist, Carlos Cruz-Diez, and to introduce a new collection of timepieces in his honor. Hublot has a long-standing history with Latin American artists, having partnered in the past with icons including Romero Britto, Oscar Niemeyer and more. We are thrilled to launch these three timepieces exclusively for our Venezuelan customer, and to celebrate the Art of Fusion as we continue to join together replica watchmaking and art.”
All measuring 45 mm in diameter, these “Classic Fusion Cruz-Diez” timepieces are available in three versions: an 18 ct King Gold version, a black ceramic version and a platinum Tourbillon version limited to ten timepieces. Unique to each timepiece, the dial on this Grande Complication presents a harmonious show of different colors
