Following this year’s highly anticipated LVMH Watch Week, Hublot continued into 2023 with another bang: the fourth joint artistic collaboration with famed artist Takashi Murakami. For the new collaboration, Hublot and Takashi Murakami revealed thirteen new NFTs and thirteen unique AAA replica watches featuring the iconic smiling flower that is the focal point of the Japanese artist’s work. This announcement represents a continuation of past projects by rewarding the first buyers of the UK best fake watches and collectors of the first NFTs through an exclusive approach.
The partnership truly embodies high quality Hublot replica watches’ dedication to the arts: “Our partnership with Takashi Murakami is allowing us to construct a history that interlinks all the works we have released with Takashi, both digital pieces and the watches themselves,” explains Ricardo Guadalupe, the CEO of Hublot. “Faithful to its history, Hublot is once again first, unique and different in how it rewards its collectors, providing them with privileged access to both ownership of and trade in unique artistic pieces. Hublot Loves Art!”
The two unveiled the latest collection at an exclusive event in the heart of New York, giving guests an inside look into the wonderful world of Hublot and Takashi Murakami. The thirteen unique NFTs are inspired by Japanese video games and television from the 1970s as well as the Classic Fusion Takashi Murakami All Black, which was the first collaboration that launched in January 2021. The NFTs are linked to a limited edition of 13 new and unique Hublot Classic Fusion copy watches for sale that are set to be at this year’s Watches & Wonders in Geneva come March.
Hublot and Takashi Murakami transform the cheap replica watches into a work of art, entering a new realm by bridging the art of fine watchmaking with digital art. The thirteenth watch of the collection is the Classic Fusion Takashi Murakami Black Ceramic Rainbow. Inspired by the two previously launched pieces, this luxury super clone watches reinterprets the iconic emblem of Takashi Murakami: the smiling flower. The twelve petals of the flower form a perfect gradient of rubies, sapphires, amethysts, tsavorites, and topaz, creating a stunning contrast against the black ceramic case. Hublot’s engineers also developed an ingenious ball-bearing system creating a dizzying spectacle of color as the petals spin on an axis with each movement. Finally, at the heart of the dial is the smiling flower which creates a three-dimensional effect on the sapphire glass.
The 1:1 fake watches is powered by the manufacturer Unico caliber set in the emblematic Classic Fusion design, a unique movement that offers a 72-hour power reserve. As the third watch collaboration between Hublot and the Japanese artist, this launch is proof of the incredible collectability of this partnership.
“When my collaboration with Hublot was announced, we made it known that we would be adopting new forms of artistic expression. After creating all the timepieces together, as well as the digital works of art, we are now imagining new ways of accessing contemporary art,” notes Takashi Murakami.
These 324 NFTs were originally offered to owners of one of the two Hublot x Takashi Murakami watch models — Classic Fusion Takashi Murakami All Black & Classic Fusion Takashi Murakami Sapphire Rainbow — before they were allowed to be exchanged on the decentralized NFT trading platform, OpenSea. So, from now until April 2023 in Geneva, any collector interested in one of the new replica watches wholesale to collect one of the NFTs available on OpenSea, and each buyer who purchases the unique watches will also receive a corresponding exclusive NFT.
The twelve other references, which will be available for purchase by holders of the NFTs on the dedicated e-commerce platform, recall the master flower and represent one of the petals. Twelve references for twelve hours on the dial, and twelve NFTs.
Collectors will also have a period of one year, during which they will have the opportunity to trade the twelve NFTs on the OpenSea platform. Then, in April 2024, at the end of this period, only the collector who has managed to collect all twelve of the new unique NFTs will be eligible to purchase the thirteenth and most sought-after watch: the Classic Fusion Takashi Murakami Black Ceramic Rainbow. If no single person manages to collect all twelve NFTs, the top replica watches will be auctioned by Hublot to raise funds for charity.
