In 2012 Hublot collaborated with the famed Japanese artist Takashi Murakami to launch a range of watches. 

The outcome, known as the Classic Fusion Murakami, features his signature response to globalization and modernity in its design.

The timepiece utilises a mixture of traditional Asian art with Western culture

which is embodied by Takashi Murakami’s colorful use of manga-influenced imagery and bold combinations of pop culture symbols.

The Classic Fusion is available in various dial colors, but for this article we will examine one model in particular: 

the Hublot Classic Fusion Rainbow Black – Red Alligator wristwatch model 2090000RDBA09A010 that was released at Baselworld 2014.

The watch is featured with an exotic black alligator leather strap. 

The black alligator leather is complemented by a red-colored reverse bezel

black-colored caseback that features artwork created by the artist himself.

The name of the timepiece released in this article is the Hublot Classic Fusion Rainbow Black – Red Alligator which means that it features two colors in its band.

The red color is present in the form of an alligator strap,

while the black color is represented by the case of the timepiece. 

This model features a dual-time watch function which means that

it has a second hand which serves as a 24-hour indicator.

Following these two colors is an additional color: yellow gold. 

The hands and hour markers on this model are made from yellow gold and contrast beautifully

with the dark alligator strap and black-colored case as well as its red reverse bezel.

The Hublot Classic Fusion Rainbow Black – Red Alligator is water resistant up to 100 m (330 feet) and features a self-winding automatic movement.

In this article, the Hublot Classic Fusion Rainbow Black – Red Alligator is valued at $28,500 as

it’s MSRP although you can find them selling with discounts or free shipping on some sites like Amazon or eBay. 

As a price comparison, Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch is also listed at $28,500 and Hublot Big Bang Unico Sapphire Magic Gold 45MM

model number 38MM1000RDBA17A001 is listed at $17,300 on Louis Vuitton Ebay store

 while they both have better resale value than the model in this article.

Regarding its accuracy, a watch can be considered accurate if it keeps time within a few seconds a month. 

For the Classic Fusion model, during our test we achieved an average error of approximately 5 seconds per month.

The advantages of this wristwatch include its price tag as well as overall design. 

One of the main features that shows the versatility feature of this watch is its case material which is made from stainless steel and gold-toned plastic,

allowing for an emphasis on one aspect with the other being supported by it.

Another great feature about the Hublot Classic Fusion Rainbow Black – 

Red Alligator is that it offers an attractive combination of brightly colored alligator leather and

contrasting colors such as black or yellow gold.

All in all, the Hublot Classic Fusion Rainbow Black –

Red Alligator is a great watch that offers great design as well as high quality construction.

Luxury Watches – Hublot Classic Fusion Murakami Classic TT Magic Gold

The new Hublot collection Futurismo launched by artist Takashi Murakami hits the road, 

heading for the chrono-rally world Cup with a collection of watches celebrating the power of light.

Let us now discover one of these watches: the Hublot Classic Fusion Murakami Classic TT Magic Gold.

This new edition of the Hublot Classic Fusion collection celebrates the futurist world and its interaction with light, 

a theme that will be more and more present in our lives as we move further from the era of darkness.

In this edition, we can see a double magic lens, just like what is often seen on Murakami’s works filled with color and smiley icons.

An additional surprise is waiting for us on the dial side:

Hublot applied a gold-colored translucent film on the dial to make it appear even more shining and dimensional. 

The last special feature on the face is the painting of a bird with

a human face and his mouth wide open, like a real “joker” laughing at time.

The watch case is made from black ceramic and it is available in two sizes: 45 mm or 40 mm.

The difference lies in the thickness of this modern work of art: 12.6 mm for the classic version, 11.4 mm for the more sporty version. 

The black ceramic material gives this watch a shiny matt look that distinguishes it from other Classic Fusion models.
