Records were meant to be broken. And in the push for owning the title of having created the “world’s most expensive watch,” Hublot has just raised the bar. Rarely conventional, and always expensive, Hublot is very well known for their gratuitously over-the-top designs, so it comes as little surprise that the five million dollar watch precedent would be of their creation. A full 14 months in the making, this watch is more a veritable global diamond collection than a timepiece, as it houses 1282 baguette diamonds (more than 100 carats in total) set in an 18K white gold casing. If you can manage to see beyond the bling supernova, you may be surprised to find that it also tells time with Hublot’s HUB 1100 in-house automatic movement that beats at an impressive 28,800 vibrations per hour.
