After announcing their partnership during London Fashion Week back in February, Hublot and Sang Bleu have unveiled the fruits of their collaboration: a special edition of the Big Bang. Redesigned from the ground up, the timepiece makes use of Sang Bleu founder Maxime Büchi’s penchant for sacred geometry-inspired tattoos throughout. For starters, the case has been transformed into a hexagon with extensive beveling as facets give the design a tree-dimensional effect. Other details include a matte black dial with a wide black satin-finished circular flange, sculptural seconds counter and a hands-free dial — time is displayed through the superposition of three rhodium-plated octagonal-shaped discs. It even employs specially-created numerals from Maxime’s own typeface-design agency, SwissTypefaces SARL.
Limited to just 200 pieces, the 45mm titanium-constructed Big Bang comes complete with a calfskin and rubber strap and is available now from select Hublot dealers.
