The idiosyncratic collaboration between Hublot and tattoo artist Maxime Plescia-Büchi takes an ambitious direction this year. At LVMH Watch Week Dubai 2020, Hublot unveiled four new limited edition Sang Blue II timepieces, all of em decked out in Blue, just like the ink used by the Sang Bleu tattoo studio.
The Big Bang Sang Bleu II is a horological expression of Büchi’s perfect mastery of geometry and volume. The finely-chiselled lines and three-dimensional effect, will immediately draw your attention to the case. The hexagonal bezel is something you may like or may not.. but personally I find it quite refreshing.
The dial plays with transparency, allowing glimpses of the HUB1240.MXM UNICO Manufacture self-winding chronograph flyback movement. It is feat of construction, almost architectural in scope, in a 45-mm case. The chronograph seconds are tracked along a straight hand, whilst the chronograph minutes complete their laps on one of the two discs on the dial. It oscillates at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour, for a period of 72 hours.
The new Hublot Big Bang Sang Bleu II is available in four versions: Titanium, Titanium with stone setting, 18K King Gold and18K King Gold with stone setting
