Objects designed by artists are often presented as bridging the divide between function and art.
In 1917, the French artist Marcel Duchamp signed a urinal he had titled “Fountain” and declared it to be art. Now, the Japanese artist Takashi Murakami has announced that the luxury fake Hublot Classic Fusion Takashi Murakami Black Ceramic Rainbow — the fruit of his latest collaboration with the Swiss watch brand Hublot — is art, too.
“When my collaboration with cheap replica Hublot was announced, we made it known that we would be adopting new forms of artistic expression,” Mr. Murakami said in a news release. “Together, we are imagining new ways of exchanging contemporary art.”
The piece, one of 13 in the series, was unveiled during a party in February in New York City that was attended by the artist; Ricardo Guadalupe, chief executive of Swiss made fake Hublot; and some 100 guests.
The event marked a new chapter in the creative collaboration between 1:1 super clone Hublot and Mr. Murakami that started in 2021 with the Classic Fusion Murakami, produced in two versions. Each limited-edition watch featured the artist’s smiling flower motif on the dial: the 200-piece All Black, set with black diamonds, and the Sapphire Rainbow, set with a total of 487 colored stones. (Mr. Murakami also created 324 NFTs, or non-fungible tokens, inspired by the two 2021 watch models, which high quality replica Hublot introduced at the 2022 Watches and Wonders trade show in Geneva.)
This year’s edition, the Black Ceramic Rainbow, has a similar design to the earlier watches, but it is encased in black ceramic, and the center of the smiling flower design has been placed on top of the sapphire glass cover to create a three-dimensional effect. The ring of 12 petals around the flower’s center — set in a gradient of rubies, sapphires, amethysts, tsavorites and topaz — uses a ball bearing mechanism engineered by AAA quality fake Hublot to rotate around the dial.
The remaining 12 pieces in the series, each of which Swiss movement replica Hublot said will be unique, are to be revealed at the 2023 edition of Watches and Wonders, scheduled to open March 27. Each piece is priced at 50,000 Swiss francs ($53,856), and will be accompanied by an NFT that Hublot fake for sale said was “inspired by Japanese video games and TV from the 1970s, and the Classic Fusion Takashi Murakami All Black.”
But only those who own one or more of the 2022 NFTs will be allowed to buy the watches, on a first-come, first-served basis, from a dedicated platform on cheap super clone Hublot’s website. The sale date has not been announced, but the company said it will be in late March. (As of March 3, the 2022 NFTs were still listed for sale on the OpenSea platform.)
As for the 13th watch in the series — the one that was unveiled at the New York party — it will be offered to anyone who collects all of the 2023 NFTs. If no one does, the brand said, the timepiece will be auctioned to benefit a charity of its choice.
