HUBLOT launches two NFT’s with TAKASHI MURAKAMI
Hublot and Takashi Murakami are pushing back the boundaries of artistic expression by presenting two NFT digital works. These are inspired by the Hublot Classic Fusion Takashi Murakami All Black and the Classic Fusion Takashi Murakami Sapphire Rainbow, the first two watches launched jointly by the Swiss watchmaker and the great Japanese artist in 2021. These two limited editions of 200 and 100 pieces were sold out in just a few days.
Our collaboration with Takashi Murakami has led us to digital art, a field of expression in which Hublot has become a pioneer on the watchmaking planet. From now on, NFTs will be an integral part of our ‘Hublot loves art’ artistic world.”
– RICARDO GUADALUPE HUBLOT CEO
Continuing my artistic collaboration with Hublot by using new forms of artistic expression such as NFTs seems to be the natural way to develop our relationship. By looking forward.”
– TAKASHI MURAKAMI
This new phase in the artistic collaboration developed with Takashi Murakami is in the form of two static NFTs featuring the smiling flower with its mischievous smile, the iconic theme of Murakami’s work and his Superflat artistic movement. The first NFT, based on the All Black version, is a limited edition of 216, while the second, which will recreate the colours of the highly exclusive Sapphire Rainbow version, will be a limited edition of 108. These NFT digital works are mainly intended for the current owners of these two limited-edition watches, to whom they will be offered under certain conditions explained under (Hublot.com). The current owners of these watches shall actively claim the NFT from 1st April 2022 and no later than 25th April 2022. If they claim and wish, these watch owners may then receive their free NFT in their eWallet. In May, Hublot will then open a page on a decentralised non-fungible token marketplace, where owners may exchange their NFTs.
