For the Baselworld show some watches had dressed up to the nines. We suggest three elegant candidates for accessorising your tuxedo or evening gown.
Sporting a 41mm power case and driven by the HUB1110 automatic movement, the ceramic Big Bang Sugar Skull embellishes its all-black look with 36 red spinels on the bezel plus a dial and strap decorated with colourful embroidery.
