Hublot has just debuted their new High Jewelry Collection for 2020 which includes three incredible diamond-filled watches. Each of these watches is unique in their own right, but the one aspect they all share is their brilliance. Each of the stones on the watches was hand-placed by a very patient and precise stone-setter.
In fact, Ricardo Guadalupe, CEO of Hublot, had this to say about the feat of setting stones: “Setting the stones on a watch is a feat of technical and aesthetic excellence, carefully conceived and determined in advance. The discipline is both a science of absolute precision and an art form, the aim of which is to maximize the brilliance of the stones within the limits of an extremely confined space. Overcoming such tough challenges and coupling tradition with innovation are the driving forces of our ambition.”
