According to acclaimed artist Maxime Plescia-Buchi, “Geometry is the universal expression of an abstracted and systematized weltanschauung. It carries value, ideas and messages through time and space, and thus unifies humankind in itself as an ultimate manifestation of the Human Mind.”

Swiss watchmaker Hublot has launched the second phase of its collaboration with Buchi, founder of international leader in skin art Sang Bleu. Unveiled at Sang Bleu’s exclusive new studio in Los Angeles, the Hublot Big Bang Sang Bleu II features the finely chiseled lines and angles discerning watch fans have come to admire from the artistic partnership, with the bold design reaching past the case and onto the sapphire crystal, bezel and bracelet, as well as rendered on the artful dial itself. The 45mm timepiece also gives a glimpse at the Hublot HUB1240 Unico movement itself.

“Thanks to Maxime Plescia-Büchi and Sang Bleu, the art of tattooing has evolved to reach new heights,” Hublot CEO Ricardo Guadalupe says. “For this second collaboration, we wanted to reflect on this development by extending the motif across the case and hands. Each of these illustrates the graphic style of this illustrious tattoo artist.” Hublot Big Bang Sang Bleu II, $25,200 in titanium
