Spirit of Big Bang Yellow Sapphire (3)

Catching the eye of burnt out buyers at Baselworld is never easy, but Hublot has given itself a decent chance with the creation of a bright yellow Sapphire Spirit of Big Bang.

The watch was previewed to a select audience in Geneva in January, but could a star piece at the Basel fair thanks to its sunny disposition.

Once dug out of the ground in tiny quantities, Hublot now makes large, uniform, transparent and colored sapphires that, when used in watch cases, give a 360 window into the inner workings of its movements.
