Hublot’s New Watch… And You Can Only Buy it With Bitcoin!
In one of our previous blog posts, we wrote about 10 different items that can be purchased using bitcoin. It’s pretty remarkable to see how far bitcoin has come in just ten short years. It went from being a pseudo-anonymous currency used only by a select group of people to becoming a currency that you can use to purchase everyday items. In fact, companies like Microsoft and Starbucks have started allowing customers to purchase their services using bitcoin. This is a huge jump from the meager group of computer nerds that used it for the first few years of its existence. In this blog post, Coin Cloud explores another crazy item that can only be purchased using bitcoin, Hublot’s newest $25,000 watch.
Now, if you’re like most of us who enjoy window shopping but never actually purchase any of the expensive items we spend hours looking at and researching, you probably won’t be owning this watch any time soon. On the other hand, if you’re one of the select few that were able to make a sh*tload of money off of the surging price of bitcoin, then maybe this watch can be yours.
Let’s take a look at Hublot’s newest watch, the Big Bang Meca-10 P2P.
This watch was made in celebration of Bitcoin’s 10th birthday that just passed on Halloween day. It has several design elements based on the complexities of Bitcoin and blockchain, making the watch one-a-kind. Each watch will be emblazoned with the transaction number on the side, making that watch unique to the owner. Each unit will also feature the Bitcoin logo on various parts of the watch.
This beauty comes at a meager price of just $25,000, pocket change for the several millionaires who were produced by the soaring price of bitcoin over the last decade.
While being rich is the first step to bringing this baby home, it’s not the final one. To cap off the ‘wow’ factor of this beautiful piece, Hublot is only allowing it to be purchased using bitcoin. Sorry, everyday millionaires, your credit card isn’t going to cut it. You’re going to have to dip into your digital wallet to purchase this thing of beauty.
Even if you’ve got $25,000 worth of bitcoin sitting in your digital wallet, actually purchasing one will be a feat in itself. Production has been limited to only 210, a nod to the 21-million bitcoin supply.
How Can It Be Purchased?
Hublot has partnered with the digital asset brokerage house, OSL, to sell the devices. Prospective buyers can register for the device through Hublot’s website; however, Hublot has already stated that all devices have been sold. If you aren’t able to get your hands on one this time around, maybe you’ll have better luck after Bitcoin’s 20th birthday.
