To be honest, everything about this image conjures up a fantasy lifestyle for me. Imagine: a leisurely breakfast over the paper with a cup of tea, far from the mayhem of two small children, whose propensity to upset that aforementioned cup of tea makes the prospect of me ever wearing a pristine white shirt in the morning a laughable prospect. (Admittedly, I’d have just a dash of milk in that tea, thanks, but otherwise it’s spot-on.)
Oh, and the luxury replica watch? Well, the venerable brand’s perpetual calendar is a bona fide stunner with a dial made from solid pink gold. Limited to only 150 pieces and costing $116,000 USD, it’s a daydream of a watch in a white gold case. Price: USD$116,000
Replica Hublot Big Bang Integral Tourbillon Full Sapphire
In the words of Jean-Claude Biver himself, part of Hublot’s birth was the need for a “luxury Swatch watch”. It then makes sense how the concept behind Swatch’s 1980’s “Jelly Fish”, a see-through watch made of plastic, can be transferred into the world of hyper-luxury in the skeleton dial replica Hublot Big Bang Integral Tourbillon Full Sapphire.
As its name suggests, a huge percentage of this watch is hewn from the second-hardest material on Earth, including the bracelet which is held together with titanium links. Every part of the movement is visible, including the micro-rotor at 12 o’clock, cleverly replacing the Hublot logo with its name within the skeletonisation. Price: USD$422,000
