Made of ultra-lightweight and torsion-resistant carbon fiber, the case and bezel are also blended with micro-glass fibers to give the watch a unique color and pattern. Its HUB6020 manual-winding skeleton tourbillon movement is fully in view through the watches’ sapphire crystal dial. Launching soon as a 50 pieces limited-edition, the Carbon Sky Blue Watch will be retailing for $100,000 USD.

As Hublot engineers were seeking to find a perfect fusion between movements and cases, they developed a transparent yet robust material that simultaneously showcases the heart of the watch — synthetic sapphire. Presented in a punchy purple makeover, this iteration of the Big Bang Tourbillon features a fully polished purple sapphire crystal case, complete with matching rubber straps in a structured lined texture. Also to be released as a 50-piece-limited edition, the Carbon Purple Sapphire watch will be priced at $206,000 USD with the same technical specifications as its Carbon Sky Blue counterpart.

Boasting a striking neon yellow color, this piece may seem like just another addition to Hublot’s series of colorful sapphire crystal cases. The watch is in fact constructed with a type of aluminum oxide alloy called “Sapphire Aluminum oXIDE and rare Earth Mineral” a.k.a SAXEM. Often used in lasers and satellites, SAXEM is an incredibly resistant material that has never been used in any Hublot timepieces before. The 44mm watch runs on the in-house HUB6035 automatic tourbillon movement and will be launching in a limited run of 50 units for $211,000 USD.

Priced at $24,100 USD in a limited production of 100 watches, the Unico Sorai is currently available for purchase as an online exclusive on Hublot’s website.
