We’ve seen plenty of expensive watches here at MotorAuthority, but the latest creation from Swiss luxury firm Hublot easily takes the cake. The watch is the spectacular two million euro (approximately $2.9 million) Hublot BB, which was presented by Formula 1 supremo Bernie Ecclestone and Tina Zegg from jeweler Zegg & Cerlati at the recent 2011 Monaco Grand Prix.

Easily one of the most expensive watches ever created, the Hublot BB is made from 18 karat white gold and is encrusted with more than 140 karats of diamonds. The stones, of which there are a total of 637 individual cut ‘baguette’ diamonds (named because of their rectangular shape that mimics the popular French bread), are placed side-by-side without any gaps.

It took a team of 45 gem-cutters more than 2,000 man hours to complete and features unique elements such as a tourbillion movement and an offset hour and minute indicator at the 12’o clock position. And yes, this is the only one of its kind in the world.

The Hublot BB watch is currently available for sale at Zegg & Cerlati’s premier suite in Place de Casino, Monaco.

  1. Nice watch old man.

  2. Incredible !

  3. $2.9million but my $100 Casio will still keep better time. Simply Vulgar.

  4. Actually your casio will NOT keep better time. Watches like these are tuned to be perfectly accurate for many tears. Cheap digital watches are not even close to accurate.

    This watch may be a bit vulgar though, I agree there.

    Personally I prefer my 300$ Skaagen, very simple design but classy. Or my fake rolex if I want to look like I have more money than I do.
