Hublot is crystal clear, they like sapphire cases

Hublot, no stranger to doing weird things like covering their watch dial in denim, is now making cases from sapphire. Normally, sapphire is reserved for crystals, but in this case, Hublot has invested heavily in sapphire production. Here, then, is the Big Bang MP-11 in Emerald Green transparent sapphire.

This isn’t the first time Hublot has explored colored sapphire. They’ve previously worked on transparent, black, yellow, blue and red. The benefit of SAXEM sapphire cases is that they are brilliant in color, scratch resistant, and completely transparent.

SAXEM, comes from the words Sapphire Aluminium oXide and rare Earth Mineral, and it’s this recipe that gives the watch its beautiful green color.

The MP-11 houses a 14 day power reserve movement inside the emerald green case, with seven barrels that can be seen from the side of the case. Production will be limited to 20 pieces. If you happen to have $127,000 USD in the couch cushions or map pocket of your Maybach, go to Hublot.com.
