Is there some “sacred geometry” in this cool new piece from Hublot? I think so. This is the new Hublot Big Bang “Sang Bleu” a limited edition of 200 pieces. The watch was designed in collaboration between Hublot and Maxime Büchi, a tattoo artist who tattooed Kanye West, among others, in his London shop named Sang Bleu.
You can see a lot of new design elements in this Big Bang, laden with beveled lines and geometric patterns. I really like the bezel, which sees its roundness edged off and turned into a hexagon, to very cool effect. The matte black dial has a wide & sloping circularK flange stamped with the hours and given a black satin-finish (with special typeface as well).
And of course you may be wondering, “Where are the hands?” Another neat feature here — the time forgoes hands and instead uses three rhodium- plated octagonal-shaped discs superimposed. The largest disc indicates the hours, while the small one marks the minutes. To make it easier to read, the tips of the hours and minutes octagons is in white Superluminova. As for the seconds, these tick by in the center on a black disc stamped with the H of Hublot and the stylised hourglass of Sang Bleu (kinda hard to see on the watch, but see watch box lid above).
