Hublot and Swiss tattoo artist Maxime Buchi collaborated in 2016 to create Big Bang Sang Bleu. Big Bang Sang Bleu, named after his studio, featured a highly geometric design characteristic of Buchi’s hallmark style. Three years later, Hublot unveiled the Big Bang Sang Bleu with more polished detailing and a bolder design.
The case of the Big Bang Sang Bleu II, available in Titanium or 18K King Gold, is the same size as the original Sang Bleu, measuring 45mm in diameter.
This Big Bang Sang Bleu II comes in a green ceramic case of the same size as the original Sang Bleu, measuring 45mm in diameter. The shape is all about hard lines, angles, and facets. Compared to the original one, the new design is far more three-dimensional.
The design is cut into the hexagonal bezel, carved into the sapphire crystal, and woven into the removable strap. Under the right lighting, the brushed and polished surfaces expose the case’s facets and angles.
The dial design is likewise based on the geometric idea with their polygonal patterns and houses the Bi-Compax layout chronograph feature, which may be challenging to grasp at first look. Small seconds at 9 o’clock, a 60-minute chronograph counter at 3 o’clock, and a well-hidden date display at 16:30 are all included on the black and green dial.
This model is powered by the Caliber HUB1240 Unico movement, an automatic chronograph movement that boasts a 72-hour power reserve, emphasizing the Sang Bleu idea with its perforated rotor. This movement also features a flyback movement with a column wheel.
This model has black and green rubber straps to complete the watch that matches perfectly with the case and dial. The straps feature sang bleu design black ceramic and black PVD titanium deployant buckle clasp.
If you are into bold design watches, this is the perfect one for you. For more information about the Hublot collection, visit The Time Place Boutique.
