In order to welcome 2019, Hublot and Maxime Büchi launched a new special watch – the classic fusion bronze BRONZE BUCHERER BLUE EDITION special limited edition watch (521.BM.7180.LR.BUC18), showing the brand new fusion art of the brand. The new product launch ceremony was held in London’s most iconic landmark tower bridge. The historic upper walkway at night was illuminated in bright blue, and more than 150 special guests were invited to attend, including the Hublot Ambassador Maxime Büchi, who is a world-famous graphic designer, tattoo artists, and the founder of Sang Bleu Studio.
At first, Maxime Büchi was a graphic designer and typographic designer and then worked as a tattoo artist at Filip Leu for many years. In the process of learning, he began to contact and cooperate with brands such as Rick Owens, Balenciaga and Alexander McQueen, and immediately emerged in the fashion industry. Subsequently, he created the tattoo studio SANG BLEU and became an uncompromising tattoo artist. Kanye West and Adam Lambert are his clients.
Finally one day, HUBLOT found Maxime Büchi, a simple phone call, and started the cooperation between the two sides. Subsequently, SANG BLEU designed a variety of different colour and size watches for HUBLOT and was snapped up in HUBLOT stores around the world. If you want to have a Hublot watch designed by SANG BLEU, you may have to wait for months or even a few years. For the release of the exclusively limited timepiece, the image of the watch was first projected onto London’s iconic monuments, including the Tate Modern, Marble Arch, Wellington Arch, National Gallery, Millennium Bridge and Baker Street.
The Hublot Classic Fusion BRONZE BUCHERER BLUE EDITION watch features a carefully designed bronze case with a self-winding mechanical movement. This awfully luxury timepiece combines innovation and tradition, with an exceptional combination of materials and a revolutionary design that exudes a particularly strong masculine feeling.
For the first time, Hublot combines a bronze case, a black ceramic bezel and six H-shaped titanium screws. This is an unusual, masculine material and colour combination that creates a bold and fearless style. To further highlight the masculine design, the blue dial is finished with a sunburst pattern. The combination of a blue rubber strap and a crocodile strap adds a remarkable finishing touch to this impressive masterpiece. This modern gentleman’s watch has a beautiful natural lustre and a subtle yellowish background in Hublot’s bronze. Over time, the bronze case will develop a unique personality, ensuring that each watch is unique to the wearer. The diameter of this celebrity watch is 45 mm. It is equipped with a HUB1112 self-winding mechanical movement. The movement has a date display function and 42 hours of power storage.
