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.
Founded in Switzerland in 1980, HUBLOT is defined by its innovative concept, which began with the highly original combination of gold and rubber. This “Art of Fusion” stems from the imagination of its visionary Chairman, Jean-Claude Biver, and has been driven forward by CEO Ricardo Guadalupe since 2012.
The release of the iconic, multi-award-winning Big Bang in 2005 paved the way for new flagship collections (Classic Fusion, Spirit of Big Bang), with complications ranging from the simple to the highly sophisticated, establishing the extraordinary DNA of the Swiss watchmaking house and ensuring its impressive growth.
Keen to preserve its traditional and cutting-edge expertise, and guided by its philosophy to “Be First, Different and Unique”, the Swiss watchmaker is consistently ahead of the curve, through its innovations in materials (scratch-resistant Magic Gold, ceramics in vibrant colours, sapphire), and the creation of Manufacture movements (Unico, Meca-10, Tourbillon).
HUBLOT is fully committed to creating a Haute Horlogerie brand with a visionary future: a future which is fused with the key events and brands of our times (FIFA World CupTM, UEFA Champions LeagueTM, UEFA EUROTM and Ferrari) and the finest ambassadors our era has to offer (Kylian Mbappé, Usain Bolt, Pelé).
