Hublot Debuts A Tourbillon Watch With An All-Sapphire Case & Bracelet

Though they weren’t the first company to create a sapphire watch case, Hublot has quickly become the master of manipulating the notoriously-difficult-to-work-with material. Now, the brand has taken their sapphire expertise to its logical conclusion with the Big Bang Integral Tourbillon Full Sapphire.

The Hublot Big Bang Integral Tourbillon Full Sapphire features not only a full sapphire case and dial, but also a sapphire integrated bracelet. The bracelet was a massive engineering challenge and is composed of 165 different parts. Holding together its sapphire links are minuscule titanium inserts that have been designed in such a way so as to not alter the overall transparency of the watch, with an emphasis on eliminating the visibility of almost all screws, while a titanium deployant clasp secures the bracelet to the wrist. Also unique to the watch is a special version of the in-house automatic calibre HUB6035. The movement features a micro-rotor and a tourbillon, and in this instance, three transparent sapphire bridges add even more see-through goodness to this insane horological achievement. The Hublot Big Bang Integral Tourbillon Full Sapphire is available now for a staggering $422,000.
