Hublot has tapped into an unlikely seam of fans for the angular Big Bang Sang Bleu watches created in collaboration with Maxime Plescia-Büchi, a Swiss artist the watchmaker describes as a “grapho-typo-tattoo-genius”.
Two models have been added to the family this week, both all-white editions of the second generation Big Bang Sang Bleu II.
“Maxime Plescia-Büchi has a confident stroke, a perfect line, a vision composed of perspectives, in which every point seems to naturally converge towards the other to sketch out forms that are as hypnotic as they are architectural,” Hublot oozes.
Like its first iteration, the 45mm Big Bang Sang Bleu II uses polished and satin-finished surfaces in hexagons, rhombuses and triangles to create the watch’s architectural angles.
The new version houses a Unico manufacture HUB1240 automatic movement, which adds a chronograph function for the first time to the Sang Blue line.
There are two versions, one in titanium and the other in gold. Either can be set with diamonds.
The white dialed watches are worn on white rubber straps.
