To create this exceptional timepiece, Hublot has partnered with Sang Bleu, a multidisciplinary artistic platform founded by Maxime Büchi.
Its construction is reminiscent of the symbolism in the geometric shapes so dear to Sang Bleu. It evokes the harmonious and proportional relationships derived from Leonard de Vinci’s Vitruvian Man. Symmetric effects that have guided Humanity since the dawn of time and that have created the greatest architectural projects in the world. Shapes that characterize Maxime Büchi’s tattoo designs and echo the quest for perfection and the worship of symbols that bring his work to life.
The numerals created for this piece by Maxime's typeface-design agency SwissTypefaces SARL. As for the seconds counter, it appears discreetly on the metal sculpture that dresses the dial. Curves that contrast with the piece as a whole. As if to reinforce its mysterious spirit and give time another dimension, no hand appears on the dial. The time is displayed through the superposition of three rhodium plated octagonal-shaped discs. The largest disc indicates the hours, while the small one marks the minutes. To make it easier to tell the time, one of 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.
