Hublot Big Bang Integral Tourbillon Rainbow
This Hublot Big Bang features an array of baguette-cut stones including rubies, topaz and sapphires in every colour of the rainbow. The first Rainbow Big Bang was released in 2017, with this piece containing 36 carats across an impressive 484 stones on the dial, bracelet and bezel. It’s not surprising then that a whopping 1,200 hours of work went into creating this bedazzling timepiece.
Patek Philippe Grand Complications 5270/1R-001
As anticipated, one of the world’s most prestigious watchmakers, Patek Philippe, has made the list. Featuring a rose gold Goutte bracelet—exclusive to Patek Philippe—this sophisticated piece comes packed with a selection of complications including day-date and small seconds, plus day and night display apertures. Inside, this watch is powered by the in-house CH 29-535 PS Q calibre, which boasts a maximum 65-hour power reserve.
MB&F Legacy Machine Perpetual Yellow Gold
This creation from avant-garde watch brand MB&F makes for a truly unique piece. The striking, skeletonised dial flaunts the innerworkings of its 581-component movement, which displays hours, minutes, day, date, month, leap year cycle and power reserve. In 2016, MB&F was recognised for its innovation behind the LM Perpetual when it won the coveted Best Calendar Watch Prize at the Grand Prix d’Horologerie de Genéve.
