Sap­phire crys­tal is one of the tough­est ma­te­ri­als to work with. Hublot and Bell & Ross, how­ever, rose to the chal­lenge and re­vealed time­pieces with cases made al­most en­tirely of the ma­te­rial. Bell & Ross pre­sented the BR-X1 Tour­bil­lon Sap­phire, which houses its skele­tonised dial and fly­ing tour­bil­lon within an all-sap­phire case. On the heels of its am­bi­tious MP05 La­fer­rari Sap­phire project, Hublot set off to cre­ate the Big Bang Unico Sap­phire, with the mid­dle and back of its case as well as the bezel cut from blocks of sap­phire, with only the screws, crowns and buckle ex­e­cuted in ti­ta­nium.
