And now for some more Baselworld dazzle, this time more literally than you’d imagine. I’m referring to Graff Diamonds’ latest timepiece called Hallucination, unveiled on Baselworld opening day that comes with a kaleidoscope of over 100 carats of rare multi-colored diamonds. Told you there was going to be dazzle!
By far, the most expensive watch ever, the candy colored stunner is in fact, quite true to its name and much the awe evoker from first time Baselworld exhibitor, Graff Diamonds. With a tinier than tiny dial, the creation is the result of thousands of hours of work by a team of designers, gemologists and master craftsmen.
“The Graff Hallucination is a sculptural masterpiece; a celebration of the miracle of colored diamonds,” Laurence Graff, Chairman of Graff Diamonds said in a statement. “For many years I have thought about creating a truly remarkable watch that illustrates our all consuming passion for diamonds. The Hallucination has made my diamond dream a reality.” Said reality, just so you know, costs a surreal $55 million.
