Hublot Big Bang Sang Bleu II Limited Edition
Reading Time: 2 minutes

Blue is the new black! A true piece of sculpture for the wrist, the Big Bang Sang Bleu II is available in new limited editions. Evolving from ancestral practice to worldwide cultural phenomenon, tattooing is now an art form in its own right, thanks in large part to the work of visionary artists such as Maxime Plescia-Büchi, the founder of Sang Bleu. The Big Bang Sang Bleu II is a horological expression of his perfect mastery of geometry and volume. A timepiece crafted as a sculpture or a work of art to tell the time… these concepts overlap to create a unique, timeless watch brought to life by Hublot‘s expertise in materials.

The work of Maxime Plescia-Büchi assumes its full symbolic significance in this piece with the new editions bearing the colours of Sang Bleu. This transposition of his geometric art, almost architectural in its structure, onto a watch illustrates the very best of the Art of Fusion.” – Ricardo Guadalupe, CEO of Hublot

These new versions are blue, just like the ink used by the tattoo studio, Sang Bleu. The colour appears on the dials and straps, embellishing the web of geometric lines that criss-cross the hands, bezel and case. Available in titanium or King Gold, with or without stone setting, and boasting a generous diameter of 45 mm, the case houses a Unico manufacture movement, the HUB1240 automatic chronograph, which offers a 72-hour power reserve.
