Hublot has launched a pair of $790,000 Big Bang Tourbillon watches that are encrusted with 484 rainbow-colored gems

Rainbow-themed ultra-high-end watches are in huge demand these days – a fact that’s easily demonstrated by the sheer number of options from different watchmakers available for sale currently. Rolex is one of the pioneers of the polychrome theme with its Daytona Rainbow, which has been on sale for ages, but Hublot is the brand that has constantly been pushing the boundaries and exploring different possibilities with the rainbow look. For 2021, Hublot has come up with two Big Bang Tourbillon models adorned with the full rainbow spectrum. Behold the pair of Hublot Big Bang Integral Tourbillon. Unlike the Big Bang Unico Full Baguette King Gold Rainbow, the Swiss watch brand’s newest models are covered with rainbow-colored gems from the case to the dial and the bracelet.

The two new Big Bang Tourbillon models are available in either King Gold (rose gold) or white gold, and each of them is set with 36 carats of multi-colored gems. A total of 484 baguette-cut gems are integrated into almost the entire surface of the watch, which includes red rubies, fuchsia pink sapphires, ultraviolet amethysts, topaz in Klein blue, leaf green tsavorites, lemon yellow sapphires, and bright orange sapphires. Hublot says 1200 hours of work goes into selecting, cutting, and setting the stones for each example of the timepiece.

The Hublot Big Bang Integral Tourbillon case measures 43mm, and it houses the Calibre Hublot HUB6035. The Automatic tourbillon manufacture movement comprises 243 components and offers a power reserve of 72 hours, beating at 3 Hz. The movement is visible from both sides thanks to the skeletonized dial and the transparent sapphire crystal caseback. Both the versions of the new Hublot Big Bang Integral Tourbillon with rainbow colors have been priced at $790,000 apiece.
