In its latest limited edition masterpiece Hublot takes the art of fusion to new heights. LaFerrari Sapphire is the living embodiment of decades of fine horological traditions and constant pursuit for innovation and development. The Unico movement is beautifully accentuated thanks to the transparent case, which puts the essence of the Tourbillon model on display.
The watch’s unique character is characterized by its robust and flamboyant nature – Hublot’s Sapphire models have revolutionized the fashion and jewelry worlds as they are cut straight from sapphire, retaining the material’s precious and rare character. Only 50 pieces will be manufactured of this highly-praised model that combines the acclaimed architecture of Hublot’s famous Big Bang model and absolute transparency of design with the brand’s signature Unico movement.
The middle of the case together with the bezel and back of the Big Bang Unico Sapphire are all cut from blocks of scratch-resistant sapphire. Only a small portion of the spine of the watch is made from titanium. The skeleton dial reveals all the gears of the proprietary Hublot Unico movement and its intricate finishes. The strap is also transparent to complement the watch’s ethereal silhouette. LaFerrari Sapphire is water-resistant up to a depth of 50 metres and has a power reserve of up to 72 hours. In total, 637 components power the spectacular timepiece.
Designed in a way to reveal all inherent beauty and complexity of Hublot’s proprietary movement – the new piece balances refined elegance and bold architecture in a remarkable way. This explains the extravagant price, which despite remaining to be announced officially, is expected to be in the region of $300,000 to $600,000. Its austere design is evocative of the beauty and aerodynamics of the outline of Ferrari cars. The 50-day power reserve sets a new world record for a Tourbillon wristwatch that is hand-wound. PVD titanium blends seamlessly with the sapphire and are topped off with a rubber strap.
