Hublot BB Watch

We’ve seen a lot of expensive timepieces in these pages, some more audacious while others literally scream "bling." However, stop us if you think that you’ve seen anything remotely close to what Hublot ’s new BB Watch is bringing to the table. More importantly, do you have €2 million ($2.9 million) to spare?

The watch is, without question, one of the most expensive watches we’ve ever laid our peepers on. Rightfully so too, considering that the watch is made from 18 karat white gold and comes with over 140 karats of diamonds made from 637 individual-cut ’baguette’ diamonds that have been placed piece-by-piece together without any spaces in between.

Take a few seconds to look at that watch and just study how all those pieces are actually diamonds. Crazy, indeed.

According to Hublot, the watch took over 2,000 man hours to finish with 45 gem-cutters working on it. On top of all the bling that makes up the entire piece, this €2 million financial torpedo comes with a tourbillion movement and an offset hour and minute indicator.

And to justify just how exclusive this timepiece is, it’s the only one of its kind with F1 czar Bernie Ecclestone showing off the watch at the recent Monaco Grand Prix. The whole Hublot and Formula 1 partnership is yielding tremendous press for both parties and if you happen to have €2 million lying around, you can make a run for this exclusive watch at Zegg & Cerlati’s premier suite in Place de Casino, Monaco.

Oh! This watch is what I have been dreaming for! But wearing this watch will surely worth my life so i’d rather stay away with it now. smiley

Come on guys, even if we say that we don’t like it, they will still continue on making this kind of stuff. After all, there would still be folks who have enough dough to commission it.

Well, if that’s the case, I think that this one is much better in a museum display case instead of someone’s wrist. Besides, no one is really going to dare wear this, unless he is really all that powerful.

Nope, this one just really goes to show how folks can go crazy when it comes to showing of their wealth. Just imagine, they could have done something more useful with the amount of work that they have spent on this one.

Sometimes, I really am scratching my head whenever I see these special editions watches. I’m fine with celebrating anniversaries with one of a kind objects, but this one is already on the excessive.

Whoah! That’s a beautiful and amazing watch. I’ve never seen any type of watch like this. Built with diamonds, golds and baguette is a true masterpiece. I wonder, how many watch like this they made?

Oh man, I nearly fell off my seat after seeing this one. Just look at those diamonds. No one in his right mind (even if has the money to spend for it) would actually go out waring this one without having an army of bodyguards first.

2,000 man hours ? Wow! That’s equivalent to two months of non stop work! So i guess this really shows on how meticulously this watch was made. However, with all the diamonds surrounded on this I bet it’s kind of heavy. BTW, Is it available for men and women?
