Combining cutting edge mechanics and ultra-resistant materials, the new Big Bang Meca-10 Blue Ceramic timepiece from luxury Swiss watch brand Hublot comes dressed in an indigo blue ceramic case that houses a mechanical movement capable of delivering 10 days power reserve.
Forged in blue ceramic, its 45mm case opens to a bluish skeleton mechanism and comes with a rubber strap in the same royal colour. The modern and distinctive Big Bang Meca-10 Blue Ceramic emulates the company’s defining concept – The Art of Fusion. The case, bezel, and folding clasp are made of high-tech ceramic – zirconium dioxide with high temperature sintering. Very hard and solid, yet lighter than steel, it resists scratches and ageing.
Developed over a span of two years, its manually-wound skeleton calibre, with a 10-day power reserve, contains 223 parts. A testament to beauty and technical expertise, it has two barrels parallel to the power reserve indicator: a cogwheel system with two rakes sliding along a horizontal axis.
Accentuating this mechanical architecture, an opening at 3 o’clock unveils a red dot when the movement is nearing the final days of its power reserve, while a gearwheel at 6 o’clock indicates the exact number of days remaining and the regulating organ, coupled with the small second regulator, appears at 7 o’clock.
A second model in King Gold brings together the radiance of red gold and the depth of the mat blue skeleton dial. With a sapphire back, this duo is worn with a lined structured rubber strap with a “One Click” fastener, for quick, easy, and safe changing.
