Baselworld 2019: Hands-on the HUBLOT Big Bang “Sang Bleu II” by Maxime Plescia-Buchi

This is already the second edition of “Sang Blue” watches Hublot is presenting with Tattoo Artist Maxime Plescia-Buchi. The “Sang Blue I” collection, launched in 2016, is sold out. Whilst the latter appeared to be more or less two-dimensional, the Big Bang “Sang Bleu II” is more disruptive. Hublot channels the creative inspiration of Maxime Plescia-Buchi into its three-dimensional angles and edges. The motif spans the case, cutting into its hexagonal bezel, and carving into the sapphire crystal, juxtaposed against the hands with their geometric lines, and moulded onto the interchangeable bracelet. The dial plays with transparency, allowing glimpses of the Hublot in-house chronograph Unico movement. It is feat of construction, almost architectural in scope, in a 45-mm case.

Curious? I invite you to discover the new watches and to let me know what you think.
