De l’évidente beauté des montres violettes (13)

Zach Kazan, Worn & Wound :

The purple tone of the translucent sapphire case is a first for Hublot and the industry as a whole. The synthetic sapphire Hublot has created for this watch is a composite made of aluminum oxide and chrome. The case is enormous (44mm wide and 14.5mm thick, if you’re counting) but would you have it any other way? Statement watches like this should be big and overpowering. It’s not really meant as a daily driver, and such a vibrant color, frankly, deserves to be noticed, and not hidden away under a cuff (it is the Big Bang, after all).
