Fairey is a contemporary street artist, painter, graphic designer, activist, DJ, illustrator, and founder of the OBEY Clothing company.
The similarities between the art and watch world coincide beautifully, offering artistic inspiration that blends breathtaking designs with state-of-the-art movement technology. It’s a recipe known all too well by the horologists at Hublot, who began its partnership with renowned street artist Shepard Fairy back in 2018. Since establishing success with the Big Bang Meca-10 Shepard Fairey limited-edition timepiece, Hublot is proud to announce its second collaboration by unveiling the new Classic Fusion Aerofusion Chronograph All Black Shepard Fairey. True to Hublot’s mantra ‘’Hublot Love Art’’ Shepard Fairey has been embraced as a part of the Hublot family alongside peers Takashi Murakami, Richard Orlinski, and Maxime Plescia-Buchi. The new special edition Classic Fusion Aerofusion Chronograph features a stealth-like 45mm case design made of micro-blasted black ceramic, which is intricately engraved by Shepard Fairey using his iconic Mandala style.

The artist’s meticulous craftsmanship carries into the dial, where a star mandala sits as the centerpiece of the watch. The chronograph layout vanishes within its design and beautifully showcases its multitude of functions. Supplying power to the art-inspired Classic Fusion Aerofusion Chronograph All Black Shepard Fairey is Hublot’s in-house HUB1155 movement, responsible for providing a lengthy 42-hour power reserve. The opened sapphire case back reveals the complication and number of this limited edition, one of fifty-two pieces available for sale exclusively in North America. Each of the 50 pieces comes fit on a robust lined black rubber strap and matching folding clasp. The all-new Hublot Classic Fusion Aerofusion Chronograph All Black Shepard Fairey is currently available in-store and online for $24,900.
