Featuring a striking bright red case in high-tech ceramic, entirely developed and produced by Hublot, the Big Bang MP-11 Red Magic model reinvents horological performance, with a manufacture movement offering an unparalleled power reserve of 14 days via seven barrels which are visible from the dial side. Available in a limited edition of 100 pieces, the new Big Bang MP-11 Red Magic embodies the full splendour of Hublot’s Art of Fusion.
In 2018, Hublot revolutionised the world of watch design and technology with the creation of a brand new material: the first ever brightly coloured high-tech ceramic. This world exclusive, entirely developed and produced in-house at the manufacture’s R&D department and its Metallurgy and Materials laboratory, was protected by three patents covering both the material itself and its machining processes for case components.
Up to this point, only black and white ceramics had been used in watchmaking. The manufacture gained a significant lead in materials research, opening up new avenues in terms of both aesthetics and performance.
Fully polished, this original case and bezel material offers a distinctive contrast with the iconic H-shaped screws of the Big Bang in black titanium, and with the crown and the strap in black rubber – another of the manufacture’s signatures. The result: a bold, striking and innovative design in the true spirit of Hublot.
Effortlessly embodying the Art of Fusion, this state-of-the-art red ceramic is paired with a Hublot manufacture movement offering unrivalled performance and design. Featuring an innovative and spectacular construction which can be admired through the transparent dial, the Hublot caliber HUB9011 manual-winding skeletonised movement offers an exceptional power reserve of two weeks via seven series-coupled barrels.
To enable energy to be transmitted between the horizontal barrel arbor and the vertical gears controlling the hour and minute display, the designers made use of a system rarely employed in watchmaking: a 90-degree helical worm gear. To create an aesthetic balance with this helical gear, which is visible at 10 o’clock, the balance, made from anthracite ruthenium, was moved to the dial side in a symmetrical position at 2 o’clock.
This movement, comprising 270 components, is also notable for its patented index-assembly system, its silicon escapement and its black platinum bridges. The Big Bang MP-11 Red Magic is wound manually using the large fluted crown with worm screw type relief that echoes the helical gear, or an electric Torx stylus inspired by the world of motor racing.
