The Hublot MP-05 LaFerrari is a model for the trend of sapphire cases in the watchmaking industry. The transparent case allows the watch’s engine block to be unobstructed, just like a row of 11 connected barrels (providing a 50-hour power reserve) and a horizontally mounted tourbillon.

The end of the rainbow is definitely gold.
The rainbow pattern is sweeping the watchmaking industry, and the addition of Hublot to this new Canon also adds to the enduring trend.
The Swiss watchmaker’s latest Big Bang Unico Full Baguette King Gold Rainbow watch combines clocks and fine jewelry with a sparkling effect. This 45mm case is composed of 290 precious gems arranged in technical colors and forged from 18K rose gold to help highlight the color composition. The case and dial are set with 100 rubies, pink sapphires, amethysts, blue sapphires, blue topazes, tsavorites and yellow and orange sapphires. There are 112 baguette-cut gems on the bezel alone.
It is not an easy task to place the Swiss watch correctly, partly because the grade of colored gemstones requires a certain degree of accuracy. (“The cartographer, gemologist and setter worked together to achieve this goal,” Hublot CEO Ricardo Guadalupe said in a press statement. ) Equally impressive is that the HUB1242 chronograph flyback movement manufactured by UNICO has a dual clutch mechanism and a column wheel to ensure its smooth operation.
In order to ensure that the strap is as bold as the rest, Hublot chose the texture alligator leather, but provided it with a multi-color gradient finish, and the transition of jewelry tones from one to another. Don’t forget, the clasp is also set with 30 gems, which are the same color as the gems splashed on the dial.
Since Rolex launched the rainbow version of its Daytona in 2018, many top watchmakers have uniquely modified the concept. Parmigiani Fleurier recently released a watch set with gems, and released the same product for Bulgari with the Bulgari (Serpenti) timepiece series. Obsessed collectors are undoubtedly asking about this style, and it has caused a clear boost in this sparkling release.
