With the new Big Bang Tourbillon Automatic Purple Sapphire, the Nyon watchmaker unveils an exclusive version of synthetic sapphire, a world-first, and a completely new color in the field of fine watchmaking: translucent purple.
This new purple tint is a composite made of aluminum oxide and chrome.
By combining a traditional complication (the tourbillon) with a disruptive material (sapphire), Hublot reaffirms its motto: to be first, unique and different.
When it comes to the movement, Hublot can capitalize on 15 years of developing its tourbillon—the first was launched in 2007. $200,000, hublot.com.
