Hublot and Daniel Arsham launch the Arsham Droplet pocket watch

10 June 2024

By Peter Vossner

Hublot comes together once again with Daniel Arsham, a contemporary artist known for his unique style of transforming everyday objects into "future relics”. Over the past decade, Arsham has partnered with a wide range of brands and notable figures. Fusion is key for him, and his past projects have showcased an ability to innovatively blend art, design, and popular culture.

The newest collaboration with Hublot is a natural extension of Arsham's artistic practice, as both brands share a commitment to pushing the boundaries of their respective fields.

The result is the Arsham Droplet, which seamlessly unites Hublot's technical mastery and Arsham's distinctive artistic vision, delivering a timepiece that pushes the boundaries of traditional watchmaking.

Inspired by the organic, fluid forms found in nature, the Arsham Droplet is crafted from a harmonious blend of titanium, rubber and sapphire crystal. It measures 73.2mm in length, 52.6mm wide and 22.5mm thick. Its ergonomic and tactile design is a perfect fit in the hand, allowing for a truly immersive and engaging horological experience.

At the heart of the watch lies Hublot's iconic Meca-10 manufacture movement, which boasts an impressive 10-day power reserve that ensures the timepiece can be enjoyed for extended periods without the need for frequent winding, further enhancing the user's connection with this one-of-a-kind creation.

Its 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.

Featuring a sandwich construction, with two exquisitely crafted domed teardrop-shaped crystals, the open worked titanium case resembles delicate lace woven in a droplet pattern. The side bumpers are in a custom Arsham Green rubber and with the artist’s monogram stamped onto the surface.

The case boasts a double sealing system with no less than 17 O-ring seals, ingeniously placed to guarantee a perfect seal. The timepiece 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 a water resistance of 30 meters, ensuring durability and reliability in any setting. With its exceptional craftsmanship and innovative design, this 99 piece limited-edition masterpiece is destined to become a cherished collector's item.
