Yes Hublot may have launched the mind boggling Big Bang Integral Tourbillon Full Sapphire, with an integrated sapphire bracelet and yes, there may be a new Big Bang Unico Yellow Magic in an incredibly vivid yellow ceramic case (yellow and red ceramic were the hardest to achieve, if you are wondering). But my pick of the big releases from Hublot are the three new Sang Bleu II models. Why? Because think that they are the best looking.
These new products of their collaboration with London tattoo studio Sang Bleu, the Sang Bleu II Ceramic is now available in ‘royal blue’, grey, and white, following last year’s Sang Bleu II All Black in satin-finished and polished black ceramic.
What this case material does, as compared to metal, is that it seems to accentuate the sharply angled case, designed by Maxime Pescia-Buchi and with its multiple facets and shapes. The material seems to somehow better ‘match’ the case design, and these colours bring the angles into more visible relief than a fully black case.
The new white ceramic model is the flipside of the All Black. For the grey and blue models, the hands are a contrasting white and the hands, whose design echoes the angularity of the case and indices, are lumed.
All the cases are 45mm and have the automatic UNICO flyback chronograph movement, with a three day power reserve.
Coming on colour-matched rubber straps, each of the new Sang Bleu II Ceramic come in a limitation of 200 pieces each, with an RRP of CHF 25,900.
