A totally transparent sapphire case allows for unobstructed viewing of the record-breaking movement in this MP-05 “La Ferrari” Sapphire watch. The incredible carved sapphire case is a technical feat in itself, matched only by the technical prowess of the complex movement – designed and developed in house at Hublot. The movement was first unveiled in 2013 in a nontransparent MP-05. It offers an incredible 50 days of power reserve thanks to the 637 mechanical components. The sapphire case for this watch took more than 600 hours to complete and consists of seven individual parts machined from seven blocks of sapphire. Just 20 pieces will be made. Retail: $575,000.
