Hublot’s (Red) Magic Mo­ment

WatchTime - - Watchtalk -

— The fo­cus for Hublot this year was sim­i­lar to years past: a to­tal de­vo­tion to the re­search and de­vel­op­ment of new ma­te­ri­als and dial struc­tures that stand out in a crowded field of new re­leases. One watch that was re­leased at Basel­world and em­bod­ies that brand ideal is the Big Bang Unico Red Magic.

Hublot has in­tro­duced what is de­scribed as the first “vi­brantly-col­ored ce­ramic” to en­ter the watch in­dus­try. ere’s zero doubt to that claim — the new model is bright red and im­pos­si­ble to miss. e ce­ramic was de­vel­oped by Hublot’s R&D team and took four years to bring from con­cept to com­ple­tion. e color is reached through a fu­sion of pres­sure and heat that sin­ters the ce­ramic with­out burn­ing the pig­ments. e ce­ramic is also in­cred­i­bly dense, boast­ing a hard­ness of 1500 HVI com­pared to 1200 HV2 of con­ven­tional ce­ram­ics.

e 45 mm col­umn wheel chrono­graph is lim­ited to 500 to­tal pieces. It fea­tures the Unico HUB1242 man­u­fac­ture move­ment.
