Celebrating 10 Years with a $10 Million Watch Collection – Now that’s Hublot

Hublot is commemorating Big Bang’s 10th anniversary at the world’s largest and most important annual watch exhibition by unveiling the Big Bang 10 Years Haute Joaillerie watches priced at $1 million each.  The ongoing Baselworld 2015 has caught our attention with the unveiling of outstanding and dazzling time-telling devices. Catching up with the rage of unique and limited edition watches, Hublot has also made their move by announcing three new Big Bang models.

This was followed by a decade of phenomenal success. Of the three models, the dazzling haute joaillerie watch collection has made time stand still. Featuring unique and fundamental Hublot elements, the Big Bang “10 Years” Haute Joaillerie collection includes ten watches and is collectively valued at $10 million. Three of the most complex setting techniques like invisible setting, Clou de Paris setting and rail setting have been used to ignite the collection’s shimmering glory.
