The Hublot Big Bang line is Swiss watch architecture at its finest, serving engineering and design excellence alongside exclusivity in a standout timepiece that blends function with art. For Spring/Summer 2019, Hublot teamed up once again with Sang Bleu, the artistic creative agency and tattoo studio based in London and Zurich.
No detail is left untouched with these 1 of 100 and 1 of 200 limited edition timepieces. Sang Bleu creative director Maxime Plescia-Buchi has reworked the heritage label’s most iconic watch. While keeping the finishing touches such as Hublot “H” bolts and general Big Bang shape, the two new Sang Bleu watches also deliver something fresh.
Seen in a 200-piece run of titanium and 100-piece run of 18K king gold, the new Big Bang Sang Bleu II utilizes three separately rotating polygons that allow the user to tell the time based on the position of the shapes. A matte black dial houses the polished showcase skeleton, with the elegant elongated diamond-shaped hands designed to depict interpretive tattooing taking centre stage.
Finished with an engraved time adjustment and bold Hublot branding on the dial, the Big Bang Sang Bleu II is some of Hublot’s most intricate and artistic work to date.
The Hublot Big Bang Sang Bleu II will release at Hublot boutiques worldwide in July 2019. Watch the promotional video below, a visual journey created by the Sang Bleu agency, featuring world-renowned Thai Sak Yant tattoo master Ajarn Noo Kanpai.
