Its a world first and a technological and artisti

first_imgIt’s a world first and a technological and artistic achievement. The dream of combining key Hublot concepts—invisible visibility, all-black design, fine watch-making tradition and state-of-the-art technology—has become reality thanks to the creativity and ingenuity of the creators of the new One Million $ Black Caviar Bang.This unique piece, which houses a tourbillon, symbolises the fusion between Watch making and jewelry, between tradition and technology, and between glittering vision and invisibility. As Hublot CEO Jean-Claude Biver says: “When each element is crafted individually and in coherence with the one right next to it, this is invisible from the outside but creates a vibration of harmony which is visible and gives rise to emotion in those who perceive it.”Creating this exceptional watch demanded over 2,000 hours of meticulous work, from design to final adjustment, without forgetting the research and development, programming of the machines, choice of tools, diamond cutting, optical checking of each part, and setting and casing. 544 baguette diamonds adorn the watch’s case, dial, crown and deployant clasp.www.hublot.comlast_img read more
