Although Hublot and art have long shown a unique and strong connection, Hublot Sang Bleu perfectly combines the art of sculpture and watchmaking craftsmanship. In 2021, tattoo artists Maxime Plescia-Büchi-Sang Bleu-and Hublot will launch three limited edition Big Bang watches, paired with Hublot Big Bang Sang Bleu II ceramics, now available in blue, gray and white ceramics.
The people at the scene are fully aware of this: tattooing is an advanced art form, not only because of the artist’s talent skills and the required concentration, but also because it requires the commitment of the art specialist-because the final result will be shown on them I have my own skin all my life. No one knows this better than aBlogtoWatch’s own Zach Pina. He wrote and experienced the tattoo with Hublot in Sang Bleu: “In more than ten years, Maxim’s growing work has crossed the tattoo world. Bart’s counterculture, and found mainstream attraction. Use the runes and symbolism originally designed. Inspired by sacred geometry (geometric figures used by many ancient cultures in various forms of art, literature and architecture) and Da Vinci’s Vitrux The impressive clean, symmetrical lines.”
Hublot chose such a famous artist and provided him with a perfect blank canvas, creating the unparalleled watch design of Hublot Big Bang Sang Bleu and Hublot Big Bang Sang Bleu II. In 2021, the latter will provide exquisite ceramics in three colors. Both the material itself and the way it is used challenge the tradition. Hublot has mastered the development and manufacture of high-tech ceramics for watches that are carefully decorated and perfectly uniform in color-a material that is almost scratch-resistant. Before Hublot’s development, it only existed in an extremely limited palette.
Advanced materials science is an important foundation for the realization of Hublot’s Big Bang Sang Bleu II architectural masterpiece. From the case and bezel to the dial and hands, to the unique design of the Sang Bleu II strap, every detail is unparalleled. When artistic creativity is combined with technical expertise and manufacturing know-how, the sharp sculptural multiple diamond facets are amazing.
“It is a privilege and honor to be able to cooperate with manufacturers for a long time. Since 2016, Hublot and Sang Bleu have been pushing the boundaries of art and watchmaking. This freedom allows us to continuously explore new innovations. These three Big The Bang Sang Bleu II version is the fresh fruit of this labor. The launch of these three-color ceramics has opened up a new perspective for the structure of the dial, hands and case. The experience and influence of each work are new and lasting Designing to perfect and enhance the identity of the wearer opens up new perspectives.” – Maxime Plescia-Buchi, founder of Sang Bleu and Hublot ambassador.
The 2021 ceramic Sang Bleu II is available in gray, blue and white, showing a brand new temperament. Gray gives a sense of modernity, reminiscent of the great urban buildings located in the center of most cities in the 21st century; blue is a clear nod to the blue blood royal family (such as sang bleu); and white highlights the countless carefully calculated facets And the dazzling light produced by the delicate surface treatment, these are the characteristics of each Sang Bleu II.
Each version has a diameter of 45 mm, a total thickness of 16.50 mm, and a water resistance of 100 meters. The almost scratch-resistant ceramic can protect the Hublot HUB1240.MXM movement inside. HUB1240 is based on the manufacturer’s internal UNICO movement, providing a 72-hour power reserve, which matches the modern operating frequency of 4 Hz. The movement consists of 330 parts, some of which are revealed through the dial and the sapphire crystal case back.
