Hublot Haute Joaillerie One Million

The figures speak for themselves: 1185 baguette diamonds. 4100 hours of cutting. 500 hours of dimensional checking and quality control. 4 months' work for the stone-setters. In total: 64 experts each in their own field, representing 11 different disciplines.

This is the major Haute Joaillerie piece to be presented by Hublot at BaselWorld 2013. A watch whose skeleton tourbillon movement, developed and produced entirely in the Hublot Manufacture workshops, is fully set with baguette diamonds, including its openworked dial, designed to reveal the fine mechanics. A precious yet refined piece, this watch also makes a striking visual impact through its modern graphic design; a challenging feat in the world of Haute Horlogerie Joaillerie.

Blending traditional craftsmanship and a 21st Century creative vision for watchmaking, the creation of this piece required 1185 diamonds, all sought out, brought together and purchased specially for this purpose – they come from Yakutsk, Eastern Siberia (Russia).

One of the major difficulties encountered by the stone-setters was setting the rounded flanks in both axes, on the face and edge of the watch case middle. As a result, there are 3 rows of stones to conserve the elegant design of the case, with a total weight of 17.39 carats from 322 baguette diamonds – the bezel has 120 diamonds weighing a total of 5.77 carats, the case middle 122 diamonds weighing 7.24 carats, the two end-pieces 66 diamonds weighing 3.77 carats, and finally the crown, which alone has no fewer than 24 diamonds with a total weight of 0.61 carats, a fairly extraordinary adornment. For the baguette diamonds of the case alone, a 15-strong team had to perform 1800 hours of cutting and 200 hours of dimensional checking and quality control.
