Hublot Big Bang Tourbillon Automatic Orange Sapphire Watch

Few ultra-luxury watches feel as cheerful as many of those that are produced by Swiss Hublot. For 2021, those fond of orange can bask in the translucent glow of this little lovely number that combines a hued sapphire crystal case with a brand-new automatic tourbillon-based movement. Limited to 50 pieces as the reference 419.JO.0120.RT in orange, we can already anticipate that the Hublot Big Bang Tourbillon Automatic Orange Sapphire watch will arrive in other colors in the future. This is also the first orange-colored sapphire crystal watch produced by Hublot. Expensive wrist candy rarely tastes so good.

At a glance, this watch is “just” a modern generation Hublot Big Bang when looking at the distinctive and modern-looking case shape. Its size is 45mm wide and 15.3mm thick — more or less the same as your standard Big Bang UNICO Chronograph watches. The first hint that something is different is the case, which is a translucent orange color, and which is produced out ..

Hublot Announces Limited-Edition Big Bang MP-11 Magic Gold And Big Bang MP-11 Blue Sapphire

LVMH Watch Week has kicked off for 2021, and with it comes a strong new slate of releases for Hublot. The brand’s stable of 2021 novelties includes everything from simple three-handers to intricate tourbillon models, but few members of the brand’s collection are as technically impressive as the Big Bang MP-11 line. With an immense 14-day power reserve and technology adapted from the Hublot MP-05 LaFerrari, the Big Bang MP-11 packages several of the brand’s top-level innovations into a more conventional and wearable package.
For 2021, Hublot returns to the Big Bang MP-11 with two new limited-edition variants, housing this mechanical showcase in two unique materials. First up is the limited-edition Hublot Big Bang MP-11 Magic Gold, which adds the durability and luster of the brand’s proprietary gold alloy to the mix, while the limited-edition Hublot Big Bang MP-11 Blue Sapphire offers a colorful and unimpeded view of the entire movement.

Ming Debuts 27.02 With New “Gradient Guilloché” Sapphire Dial

A follow up to their thin 27.01 watch from earlier this year, Ming has just released a promisingly beautiful looking follow-up in the aptly titled 27.02. Limited to 200 pieces, the 27.02 brings along the same case and movement of its predecessor while debuting a new “Gradient Guilloché” dial. The minds at Ming clearly have a keen understanding of when to innovate and when to refine. When the brand learned that some more ETA Peseux 7001 movements became available, they immediately scooped them up and took the opportunity to refine and reimagine the unique case of the 27.01.
What Ming did here is they replaced the bronze dial with one made of sapphire, and added a blue Clous de Paris guilloché ring around the outer edge of the movement. I really can’t wait to see this watch in the metal, as I have a feeling this second new step just needs to be seen to be appreciated. In addition doing a gradient finish on the sapphire dial, the team at Ming also did laser etchings filled white for the ..

Girard-Perregaux Laureato Absolute Light Sapphire Crystal Watch

Building on the Laureato Absolute watch collection that it debuted last year at SIHH 2019, Swiss Girard-Perregaux has just released a lovely high-end limited-edition watch that helps promote this new family of timepieces. This is the Girard-Perregaux Laureato Absolute Light, and it is limited to 88 pieces with a price of over $80,000. It also happens to be very desirable as a modern yet traditional luxury watch that focuses on visual mastery and functional practicality. I think Girard-Perregaux got it right in a lot ways here.
The Laureato Absolute is an aesthetic variation of the larger Laureato family. The case is different but retains the octagonal case that is a key feature of the Laureato (which, itself, was originally released around the same time as the Royal Oak in the 1970s). The Laureato Absolute Light Girard-Perregaux went with a case structure that combines carefully machined transparent sapphire crystal as well as grade 5 titanium. The case is 44mm-wide and 11.56mm-thick ..
