HUBLOT at BASELWORLD 2017
THE BIG BANG UNICO SAPPHIRE
While coloured synthetic sapphires have been in existence since 1902, when they were invented by the French chemist Auguste Victor Louis Verneuil, melting sapphire is a complex and unpredictable process. Because its crystallisation process is unstable, it is difficult to obtain similarly coloured sapphires, even if they are produced simultaneously. Furthermore, bubbles and cracks can appear in the material, making the end result unsuitable for producing Big Bang cases.
But the main challenge is in the size. Thus far, no coloured sapphires exceeding 2 kg have been produced. However, Hublot has now gone beyond this threshold. By pushing the limits of engineering and chemistry, it has developed a sophisticated and costly process that has resulted in the successful production of a large, transparent sapphire of perfectly uniform colour.
Hublot heats aluminium oxide (Al2O3) — the raw material for sapphire — with a transition metal, chromium (Cr), at a temperature of between 2000 and 2050 degrees Celsius. The result is a coloured sapphire that retains all the original properties of a material which is ultra-scratch resistant, completely transparent and among the hardest in existence. The innovation extends to the colour — the first blue sapphire in the history of watchmaking.
THE CLASSIC FUSION ITALIA INDEPENDENT COLLECTION
“We are very proud to be able to continue this partnership with Italia Independent and Lapo Elkann, whose creativity and character never cease to surprise us. This new project was an extraordinary experience for us: putting Hublot’s capacity for technical innovation and willingness to experiment to the service of the House of Rubinacci—a monument to Italian elegance—and the incomparable style of Lapo Elkann. The Classic Fusion Italia Independent truly represents the fusion of three forms of expertise.” Ricardo Guadalupe, CEO Hublot
BIG BANG BRODERIE SUGAR SKULL FLUO
The Big Bang Broderie Sugar Skull Fluo is once again revisiting traditional materials in an original, modern way. This time with Bischoff embroidery from St Gallen. This ancestral craft has travelled across the globe and is entrenched within the world of fashion.
With its cutting-edge innovation, performance and creativity, internationally renowned Swiss brand Bischoff is a key industry figure. In its workshops in St Gallen, near Zurich, Bischoff’s master artisans created specially commissioned fluorescent embroidery on silk organza. Delicately embroidered with floral arabesque motifs and subtly revealing the ‘skull’ design that will adorn the dial.
TAGHEUER AT BASELWORLD 2017
G HEUER CARRERA HEUER-01 43 MM
Unveiled in 2015, the TAG Heuer Carrera Heuer-01 opened the doors to a new market. A 45 mm Skeleton Manufacture Chronograph with a contemporary sports design, and coming in at under 5000 CHF, it redefined the notion of value for money.
This year, the famous proprietary chronograph is being unveiled with a slightly smaller diameter of 43 mm, in a choice of three versions: intense black, deep navy blue and an elegant cognac brown.
After more than five years of continuous improvement and optimisation, it now offers a very high level of quality, while its production costs have been carefully managed to make it one of the very few 100% Manufacture Chronographs available for less than 5000 CHF.
TAG HEUER CARRERA LADY 2017
The Carrera collection is TAG Heuer’s flagship collection. Launched by Jack Heuer in 1964 as a chronograph, it is now available in a range of diameters with many different functions for both men and women.
This year, thanks to a new development, the case features a different construction. It is no longer punched from a block in the traditional TAG Heuer way – it is now modular and formed of 9 different pieces (case back, case middle, bezel, lugs and strap end-pieces), which paves the way for myriad possible combinations of almost endless materials, colours, treatments and finishes.
Link. A design that dates back to 1987. Its defining feature is the immediately recognisable bracelet, boasting the signature S-shaped links. It is both an iconic design and a standard bearer in terms of ergonomics and wearer comfort. Each link is rounded on the top, bottom and sides for an exceptionally smooth feel on the wrist.
In steel, with an elegant diameter of 32 mm, the new Link Lady now features a bracelet which is fully integrated into the case, whose horns have been removed. The bracelet still has a curved profile, and the finishes are even more sophisticated: the entire contour of the S radiates a highly polished shine, while the upper surface of each link is fully brushed.
I had such a great time at BASEL WORLD 2017 and wanna thank everyone who invited me and took their time to show me their newest collection. See you next year, so long! X

I did it. I went BIG. not that size matters in general – but here it does 🙂 I found this lovely piece at the ADVOLAT webshop and was thinking about it for the last couple of weeks before I ended up getting it. Cristian has the ADVOLAT CITY watch and I once stole his watch for a day and really enjoyed wearing a big watch. so this one the FLIEGER 2 is in fact slightly bigger than Cristians one.
I have already introduced you to my new bag called BOMBATA – for the people who have not read this yet they can read it here >>
it is now the time to wear longsleeve dresses with bare legs. last sunday was such a beautiful day and I was chilling in the sun at the KABAR in basel. as you can see I stole Cristians watch 🙂 I think it looks awesome on me, I am really thinking about buying an Advolat watch for myself.
DAVIDOFF COOL WATER NIGHT DIVE is the newest fragrance and will be launched in September 2014. Awww, what a fresh scent. I love it and as I was born in the 80s and was a teenage in the mid 90s of course DAVIDOFF COOL WATER was among my parfum collection. therefore I am very happy to see a new fragrance and I really really like it – very fresh and very clear!
I found this gorgeous piece at c&a CLOCKHOUSE in Basel, Switzerland! I wore it yesterday with a blue pair of skinny jeans, a printed silk top with volants, my beloved navy tods and my navy lanvin blazer!

I am not feeling well today, I didnt go to work because my ears and head hurt like hell! these are the days where I check my wardrobe for super comfy clothes. I took some painkillers and will now watch a chickflick and hopefully I feel better soon.
