Maxime Plescia-Büchi imparts his tattoo mastery on two exquisite chronographs in titanium and King Gold

The hallmarks of an accomplished tattoo artist—precision, confidence, and technical as well as visual mastery—are embodied in Hublot's latest watch, Big Bang Sang Bleu II. The multiplicity of geometric lines and shapes construct an impeccable sense of depth that is characteristic of the chronograph's designer Maxime Plescia-Büchi's oeuvre.

The eye-catching black-lined white rubber strap that accompanies this timepiece is symbolic of a blank canvas—the starting point of all artworks. It is all the more fitting then that the interplay of polished and satin-finished titanium or King Gold that adorns the watch's face, with some models even set with diamonds, is akin to an architectural marvel.

A skeleton dial and open caseback allow the wearer a glimpse at Hublot's Unico HUB1240 movement. The respectable 72-hour power reserve and chronograph flyback function ensure that the Big Bang Sang Bleu II is as practical as it is stylish.

As with all limited edition collaborations, only 200 pieces of the Big Bang Sang Bleu II titanium model will be produced, while only 100 models will be available for the King Gold model.
