HUBLOT & MAXIME BÜCHI’S SANG BLEU
Artist sang bleu is a multidisciplinary artistic platform founded by swiss-born tattoo artist Maxime büchi. the sang bleu london tattoo studio, which he founded in 2014, brings together 12 top tattooists. celebrities büchi has inked include Kanye West and adam lambert.
Process When büchi worked his magic on this Hublot model, he drew on his signature inking style of geometric shapes and perfect symmetry, and patterns inspired by leonardo da Vinci’s Vitruvian Man. the metal sculpture of overlapping rings and squares that he created for the Hublot big bang occupies most of the dial, which incorporates numerals in a typeface created by büchi’s design agency.
timepiece the redesign of the big bang model for the big bang sang bleu sees the case bevelled and cut to give a geometric effect, and the bezel shaped into a hexagon. this 45mm timepiece, which is made in titanium, is limited to only 200 pieces.
