The ceremony was held on 26 October at the Ritz Carlton Hotel before an audience of more than 800 VIP guests. The prize was presented by HH Sheikh Mohamad Ben Abdallah Al Khalifa to Mr. Jacques Tedeschi, who represents Hublot in the Middle East.
The Big Bang One Million $ Lady 38 mm is an exceptional piece featuring a total of 880 baguette diamonds, adding up to more than 48 carats. Made from white gold by Master stone-setters using the complex "invisible set" technique which magnifies the brilliance of the diamonds, it is a piece that has enjoyed major success since its presentation in Basel in April 2010. Due to the complexity of its production, it is a watch that is made by special order only.
