Piping hot straight outta the oven, Hublot has once again taken its philosophy of ‘Art Of Fusion’ in creating a whole new approach to ceramic.
According to Hublot, the red on the new Big Bang Unico Red Magic is achieved through a major innovation whereby a fusion of pressure and heat sinters the ceramic without burning the pigments. This process is definitely a first and never been done before in industries using technical and aesthetic ceramics. It took Hublot four years to master this discovery and develop it from initial idea to its industrialisation. The invention is 100% Hublot and the expertise has been patented.
Also important to note that, the Ceramic used here is incredibly dense and harder than conventional ceramics.
Having mastered the basic hues with this method, Hublot is all set to introduce a whole new world of coloured ceramics to its watch collections. But for now let’s keep it RED.
Limited to 500 pieces globally, the watch is presented in a 45mm case in polished red ceramic. The bezel too is made from Hublot’s patented red ceramic. The flange, indexes, minute and seconds counters, Arabic numerals and hands all match this hue, adorned in the same red to highlight the contrast with the mechanism of the Unico HUB124 manufacture movement and its column wheel, visible on the dial side through the sapphire crystal. This theme encompasses the entire watch, matched with a lined structured red rubber strap. On the caseback are the words “LIMITED EDITON”, “N° XXX/500”, engraved in black ceramic.
