A complex and elusive timepiece, the Hublot Big Bang Sang Bleu has held a special place in the hearts of watch lovers across the globe. From its geometrically striking aesthetics, created by tattoo artist Maxime Plescia-Büchi, and its technical complexity, the collection demands a cult following. This time around, with the new iteration in white, Plescia-Büchi reminds us that white is the starting point of all creations: a neutral basis that highlights the artist’s mastering of shape and form. It is here that he creates his geometry in three dimensions, between relief and depth, and where each detail is signed by a master stroke.
With 45-mm cases crafted in “Titanium White” and “King Gold White” and featuring the signature hexagonal bezel, the watches’ design recognizes the spirit of squaring the circle, which brought to life the first watch born from a collaboration between Hublot and Sang Bleu, the design magazine founded by Pleschia-Büschi. With the Sang Bleu II, the timepiece and the artist behind it invite hexagons, rhombuses and triangles to play with the round form in three-dimensions. The addition of the chronograph function strengthens the watch’s original way of telling the time without altering its readability.
The multifaceted case of the watch encases Hublot’s UNICO Caliber HUB1240, a manufacture automatic chronograph movement that can be viewed through the skeleton dial and open caseback.
The Sang Bleu White is available in two limited versions — the Titanium White (limited to just 200 pieces) and the King Gold White (limited to just 100 pieces).
