No stranger to pushing the limits of innovation and outstanding creativity, Swiss watchmaker Hublot is yet again ready to wow the world of haute horlogerie with its Big Bang UNICO Red Magic timepiece, set to debut at Baselworld 2018 this week.
Hublot Big Bang UNICO Red Magic
After four years of painstaking research and development at the Hublot Reseach & Development department and Metallurgy & Materials laboratory, the brand has created the first vibrantly coloured ceramic for the watchmaking world.
The patented material is beautiful shade of red, achieved through refinement of the sintering method to preserve the pigment without burning and is also harder and more resilient than standard ceramic. Now that Hublot has achieved the difficult red colour, we can be certain that an entire rainbow of colours and creations from the trend-setting watchmaker will soon follow suit.
The Big Bang UNICO Red Magic has a 45mm case crafted entirely from polished red ceramic with a matching red ceramic bezel. The exquisitely intricate skeletonized sapphire dial proudly displays Hublot’s in-house manufacture selfwinding flyback chronograph movement UNICO HUB1242.
The applied indexes for the hours and minutes as well as the seconds counter and hands on the Big Bang UNICO Red Magic also display the fiery-red colour, in striking contrast to the black accents and movement mechanics of the exceptional timepiece.
Water resistant up to 100m, this statement timepiece has a bold red rubber strap, lined with black and a PVD coated black titanium buckle with ceramic inserts. Limited to just 500 pieces, Hublot’s newest addition to its iconic Big Bang collection, the UNICO Red Magic is a definite showstopper and a HOT one to watch out for at Baselworld 2018 !
