Swiss watchmakers Hublot have come up with a masterpiece they claim is as exquisite as a Fabergé egg. The latest member of the Big Bang line is the One Million Dollar Big Bang. The name eliminates at least one obvious question (it converts to Rs4.1 crore, in case you wondered). A total of 493 Wesselton baguette diamonds conceal a Tourbillon movement, but what really makes this one stand out is that though the stones are set in white gold, not an ounce of the metal is visible in the settings. Only row after row of sparkling bits of ice can be seen.
The natural black rubber bracelet has a buckle with a diamond-set clasp. The watch was launched last month at Baselworld and takes a total of 2,000 hours to craft. Only one piece will be sold in India, on special order from the Kapoor Watch Company, New Delhi; Time Avenue, Mumbai; Exclusive Lines, Kolkata; and Beyond Luxury, Chennai. Hope it’s still available when you get there.
