Looking back through history, men have always worn jewellery to denote status. From lip plugs in Africa to Sir Walter Raleigh’s saucy pearl earring, fancy papal accessories to Elvis’ bead knuckledusters, men have every right to love wearing jewellery. Since watches will be the most accepted form of man adornment now, let us take a look at the bead Diamond watches for guys that may never be confused as a watch for women. Beyond the blinding bling of rapper’s watches, you’ll be happy to know that there’s a select world of watches out there that show that diamonds can be a man’s best friend. Hublot: an icy cocktail of diamonds in a sapphire crystal glass As they say, if you’ve got it, flaunt it and among the best ways to show what you are about in the watchmaking world is with a sapphire crystal case. Sapphire crystal cases are the big thing these days, allowing an X-ray view of each last component of a watch. Devilishly hard to machine and generally reserved for ultra limited editions, a laRichard Mille, sapphire is your second-hardest substance on Earth after diamond and is almost impossible to scratch. That is the reason why a sour cocktail of those ultra-resilient materials made perfect sense to the designers over in Hublot watches when they came up with the Big Bang Unico Sapphire Baguettes watch. Together with the intricate mechanics of a flyback chronograph on full perspective, the bezel has been set with a discreet sprinkling of 48 baguette-cut diamonds.
