Hublot Introduces Over a Quarter of a Million Dollar Limited Edition Watch

Few watches ever achieve six figures. Imagine a timepiece on your wrist that costs what a luxury car (or two) may cost. 2022 has produced the most limited edition watch by Hublot. Collectors Dashboard has not encountered a watch like this before. Only 18 watches in black and 18 watches in white were produced for the price of $295,000.00 each.

“Founded in Switzerland in 1980, HUBLOT is defined by its innovation, which began with the highly original combination of gold and rubber. This “Art of Fusion” stems from the imagination of its visionary Chairman, Jean-Claude Biver, and has been driven forward by CEO Ricardo Guadalupe since 2012. Today, we have turned a page:

Hublot is the first watchmaker in the world to design, manufacture and assemble a Cathedral Minute Tourbillon Repeater entirely in ceramic.”

Total Watches Made: 18 White, 18 black

Price Per Watch: $295,000.00

Collectors Dashboard evaluates high-end collectibles as an alternative asset class. This means Limited Edition Watches are attracting the same capital that could have been invested into stocks or bonds. Many high-end watches now cost hundreds of thousands of dollars (or much more). Collectors with a passion to own a Cathedral Minute Tourbillon Repeater for years frequently have to compete directly against investors whose only desire is to make a profit in the future.

According to the watchmaker Hublot it took 20 years of mastering ceramic to achieve the finished 36 total watches produced. Ceramic is an extremely hard material both to machine and finish. According to Hublot, the coloring of the ceramic requires exceptional precision in firing to obtain a perfectly homogeneous result. Achieving a water-resistance of the case is a first for the material type, also a world first according to Hublot is obtaining a clear and powerful sound within a 100% ceramic case.
