— For the 10th anniversary of the Big Bang, Hublot unveils a $10 million collection, the Big Bang Unico “10 Years” Haute Joaillerie.
This exceptional and unique “anniversary” collection includes 10 Rolex replica watches, each priced at $1 million.
To create these pieces, three of the most complex setting techniques have been used: invisible setting, Clou de Paris setting and rail setting. The figures speak for themselves: 653 black baguette diamonds totalling 41.84 cts (full black diamond version), 653 baguette diamonds totalling 40.02 cts (full white diamond version), 653 baguette diamonds and blue baguette sapphires totalling 40.41 cts (blue sapphire version), or 653 baguette diamonds and baguette rubies totalling 40.93 cts (ruby version).
For the first time at Hublot, the bezel is set with invisible inverted trapeziums. It is the most complex part to set using this method, as there is no material between the baguettes.
On each piece, the colour of the flange on the bezel recalls the colour of the indices and the strap push-pieces.
In another first, the counter surrounds on the dial are also stone-set. The complete dial, including the stone-set indices, comprises 62 baguettes.
The piece features a total of 132 baguettes with invisible setting, 127 set on a rail and 394 with a Clou de Paris setting.
The replica Rolex watches house the HUB 1242 UNICO movement developed and manufactured in-house, with automatic flyback chronograph, column wheel and double
clutch visible on the dial side, and 72-hour power reserve.
A black alligator strap, equipped with a deployant buckle in white gold and set with 33 black baguette, completes the fake Rolex watches.
