What happens when high jewelry meets the experts of custom motorcycling? The answer is simple: a 8-man team is set up to work for over 2500 hours and create the world's most expensive motorbike. This was how the Harley Davidson Blue Edition came about, a unique project, totally Made in Switzerland, devised and produced from jeweler Carl F. Bucherer's encounter with the experts of Bündnerbike's custom department. The Blue Edition is the first motorbike in the world to incorporate real jewelry: the  «Heaven» ring, a 5.40 carat diamond solitaire and a Carl F. Bucherer watch, personalized on the Patravi TravelTec II model, containing elements of a motorcycle engine. Both items are on the tank and kept in two invisible safes, protected by a reinforced glass dome. Moreover, to guarantee that the engine vibrations do not damage the mechanical movement, the watch is lodged into a kind of cage with an elaborate support made of silicone rings. But that's not all, because other pieces of high jewelry were used to embellish this masterpiece. The Dizzler rotating ring from the Bucherer Fine Jewelry collection was adapted and fixed onto several parts of the vehicle. In fact it can be found around the handle grip, on the forks and on the left half of the tank, in a larger version. A highly innovative design product that connects two usually distant worlds with a work of great precision and craftsmanship.
