Hublot’s new limited edition Big Bang watch

How tattoo art inspired Hublot’s new limited edition Big Bang watch

The Swiss watchmaker collaborated with creative director Maxime Plescia-Büchi to develop this timepiece.

In order to reinterpret its iconic “Big Bang”, Hublot turned to a surprising source of inspiration: tattoos.

The luxury watchmaker collaborated with fellow Swiss Maxime Plescia-Büchi and his interdisciplinary creative agency Sang Bleau to create a model that draws both abstract body art and traditional watch art Timepiece. Plescia-Büchi is a respected tattoo artist who has worked with Kanye West and others, and is a creative director who establishes aesthetic features based on complex (usually geometric) lines. Together, they created the limited edition Big Bang Sang Bleu II, with every element intended to pay tribute to Plescia-Büchi’s previous works.

Hublot CEO Ricardo Guadalupe said in a press release: “The work of Maxime Plescia-Büchi has a full symbolic meaning in this work. , The new version has the color of Samburu.” “The transfer of his geometric art (almost structural architecture) to the watch fully embodies the essence of fusion art”

The thickness of the 45mm case is 16.5mm, and it is available in 18K King Gold or Titanium. It is water-resistant to 100 meters, which may be surprising given its exquisite appearance. Turn it over, the satin-finished bottom cover also has a sapphire crystal window, so viewers can get a glimpse of its exquisite internal structure. But this does not make the skull pointer over the front dial and leave a deep impression. All of this is powered by the internal 1240.MXM self-winding chronograph flyback movement, which has 38 jewels and a 72-hour power reserve.

Like a smooth rubber strap, the frosted dial is dark blue. Although at first it seems to have made a conservative choice due to its versatility, it is actually a reference to the dark lapis lazuli ink that Plescia-Büchi uses in most of his tattoo work. It looks as beautiful as the one translated here. Wholesale cheap watch
