Hublot, no stranger to doing weird things like covering their watch dial in denim, is now making cases from sapphire. Normally, sapphire is reserved for crystals, but in this case, Hublot has invested heavily in sapphire production. Here, then, is the Big Bang MP-11 in Emerald Green transparent sapphire.
This isn’t the first time Hublot has explored colored sapphire. They’ve previously worked on transparent, black, yellow, blue and red. The benefit of SAXEM sapphire cases is that they are brilliant in color, scratch resistant, and completely transparent.
SAXEM, comes from the words Sapphire Aluminium oXide and rare Earth Mineral, and it’s this recipe that gives the watch its beautiful green color.
The MP-11 houses a 14 day power reserve movement inside the emerald green case, with seven barrels that can be seen from the side of the case. Production will be limited to 20 pieces. If you happen to have $127,000 USD in the couch cushions or map pocket of your Maybach, go to Hublot.com.

Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.
WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.
We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
