Jason Pitsch

On April 20th, at the Robert, located on top floor of New York City’s Museum of Art & Design – overlooking Central Park and Columbus Circle – Jean-Francois Sberro, Managing Director Hublot of America, and Swiss tattoo artist Maxime Büchi, presented a new limited edition collaboration Hublot timepiece called the Big Bang Sang Bleu. To give a little background, Maxime Buchi founded Sang Bleu magazine in 2006 – merging art, fashion, literature, sociology, and tattooing.

Not to mention, that sapphire is quite brittle as well. At 45 mm in diameter, this is likely the most wearable of the sapphire watches yet. Interestingly, it is not just the case components that are clear – the indices, flange, chapter ring, bezel lugs, subdials, and
