Hublot Marks Big Bang Series` 10th Anniversary with Extravagant Release
Hublot is celebrating the 10th anniversary of its iconic Big Bang collection in style, with the release of a sumptuous series comprising ten watches worth a staggering $1 million each, called the Big Bang “10 Years” Haute Joaillerie.
What makes this release truly special is the incredible amount of skill it took to create the watches. To this aim, three of the most complex setting techniques have been used: invisible setting, Clou de Paris setting, and rail setting. Hublot has used a huge amount of diamonds for this collection as well: 653 black baguette diamonds totaling 41.84 carats (for full black diamond version), 653 baguette diamonds totaling 40.02 carats (full white diamond version), 653 baguette diamonds and blue baguette sapphires amounting to 40.41 carats (blue sapphire version), or 653 baguette diamonds and baguette rubies for a total of 40.93 carats (ruby version).
In another remarkable feat, this is the first time Hublot has set the bezels with invisible inverted trapeziums, the most complex part to set using this method. Rounding off the watch is a black alligator strap.
A staggering 400 hours of R&D and production, in addition to the 350 hours of setting, are required to create each of these exquisite timepieces. No doubt discerning collectors with very deep pockets will be impressed, and all the pieces in this amazing collection will quickly find a buyer.
