Hublot and Daniel Arsham Collaborate on a Revolutionary Pocket Wat

Renowned for its innovative spirit, luxury Swiss watchmaker Hublot has unveiled a groundbreaking collaboration with acclaimed contemporary artist Daniel Arsham. The result of this visionary partnership is the Arsham Droplet, a revolutionary timepiece that reimagines the classic pocket watch, blending antique form with futuristic materials and production methods. This exceptional piece of art can be enjoyed in three distinct ways: as a pocket watch, a pendant, or an eye-catching table clock.

A Fusion of Art and Innovation

Hublot and Daniel Arsham, known for his unique style of transforming everyday objects into “future relics,” have combined their expertise to create this captivating fusion of past, present, and future. The Arsham Droplet seamlessly unites Hublot’s technical mastery with Arsham’s distinctive artistic vision, pushing the boundaries of traditional watchmaking.

Inspired by Nature, Crafted for the Future

Inspired by the organic, fluid forms found in nature, the Arsham Droplet is a true milestone in the world of horology. This collaboration showcases the shared commitment of both Hublot and Arsham to creating exceptional and transformative experiences that challenge the status quo. Crafted from a harmonious blend of titanium, rubber, and sapphire crystal, the Arsham Droplet reflects Hublot’s unparalleled attention to detail and commitment to innovation. Measuring 73.2mm in length, 52.6mm in width, and 22.5mm in thickness, the ergonomic design fits perfectly in the hand, allowing for an immersive horological experience.

Limited Edition Masterpiece

At the heart of the watch lies Hublot’s iconic Meca-10 manufacture movement, boasting an impressive 10-day power reserve. This ensures the timepiece can be enjoyed for extended periods without frequent winding, enhancing the user’s connection with this unique creation. Limited to just 99 pieces, the Arsham Droplet is a true collector’s item and a masterpiece of modern watchmaking. With its distinctive rounded drop shape and unparalleled complexity, the timepiece challenges conventional notions of what a pocket watch can be. The organic design is complemented by a titanium case and rubber bumpers, reflecting a bold departure from traditional watchmaking norms.

Presented with two titanium chains, each featuring Hublot’s patented double “one-click” system for seamless attachment, the timepiece can be worn in multiple ways—from a necklace to a pocket watch—or displayed as a sculptural centerpiece on its decorative titanium and mineral glass table stand. The case features a double sealing system with 17 O-ring seals to guarantee a perfect seal. It also displays Hublot’s iconic design elements, including the brand’s signature six H-shaped screws.

Incorporating the latest advancements in watchmaking technology, the Arsham Droplet boasts water resistance up to 30 meters, ensuring durability and reliability in any setting. With its exceptional craftsmanship and innovative design, this limited-edition masterpiece is destined to become a cherished collector’s item.
