In 2016 Sang Bleu was commissioned by Swiss watchmaker Hublot to redesign the iconic Big Bang model, resulting in the Big Bang Sang Bleu. Channelling the design skills of world famous tattoo artist and Hublot ambassador Maxime Plescia-Buchi, the watch was comprised of three separately rotating polygons that allow the user to tell the time based on the position of the shapes. An item for collectors of exceptional time pieces and art alike.
The new Big Bang Sang Bleu II is the horological expression of a tattoo, set in motion with timeless precision, unifying materials and crafts through geometry by Sang Bleu’s founder. The hands - two elongated diamonds and an arrow - are stylised fragments of tattoos, set about a hypnotic movement. Two hundred Titanium and one hundred King Gold pieces will be released. This collaboration proving tattooing is not merely a trend but a cultural shift which will last and influence all generations to come.
