The Hublot Loves Art series features artistic collaborations that have resulted in some of the coolest watches in Hublot's current portfolio.

1. Big Bang One Click Marc Ferrero

A tribute to the multifaceted 21st-century woman, the watch replicates on the dial Marc Ferrero’s signature Lipstick art featuring the face of an enigmatic woman armed with a lipstick. There are two versions, each limited to 50 pieces – red decorated on the bezel with red spinels and turquoise decorated with blue topazes. The interchangeable straps in a combination of calf leather and rubber as well as alligator leather and rubber feature a pattern also designed by Ferrero. Put together, it is as graphic and colourful as a luxury watch could get without descending into kitsch.

2. Classic Fusion Orlinski

Sharp, sculpted edges are found on both dial and case, including the 12-sided bezel, courtesy of Richard Orlinski, one of France’s top artists. The geometric lines allow for a subtle play of light, lending it the brilliance of a gemstone without a single actual stone adorning it. Complemented by a choice of King Gold or polished titanium case.

3. Big Bang Sang Bleu II

Maxime Buchi’s tattoo art gets the luxe treatment from Hublot in the latest Sang Bleu watch, now a chronograph. (Incidentally, Sang Bleu is the name of the Swiss artist’s creative agency and magazine he founded.)

Aesthetically, it is fascinating not just because of the interlaced geometric lines but also because it appears to have no hands. But it does have a traditional seconds hand attached to the top of two diamond-shaped skeleton motifs that act as the minute and hour hands. Turn the case around and you will find a similar skeleton design for the micro-rotor. The titanium version is limited to 200 pieces while the King Gold model is capped at 100 pieces.
