With the new Big Bang Unico Full Magic Gold watch, Hublot celebrates its emblematic creation, the Big Bang. Limited to 200 pieces, this timepiece is made of the brand’s proprietary gold alloy, Magic Gold.
The iconic 44 mm case, the “sandwich” construction, large pushers, bezel with 6 visible, unaligned, functional screws, case and pusher guard, skeleton dial and interchangeable rubber strap which uses the brand’s own One Click system.
The dial features the full complement of Big Bang signatures: Arabic numerals and skeleton Big Bang hands, beneath which lies the manufacture chronograph movement, the self-winding UNICO 2.
The Magic Gold is featured on both the case and bezel. Its hues are echoed on the indices, counters and hands, in satin-finished and microblasted 3N gold. The contrast with the rest of the components of the case is all the more powerful: the titanium pushers, guards, and screws and the rubber strap are all in the deepest black.
The Magic Gold is exclusive to Hublot. Unveiled in 2011, it is a true fusion of 24-carat gold with the high-tech ceramic. The result is 18K gold that is patented, unalterable and scratchproof. Magic Gold has 1000 Vickers hardness rating. Traditional gold has 400 Vickers and hardened steel has 600 Vickers hardness rating.
By injecting liquid gold into the cold-pressed boron carbide components at very high pressure, Hublot has managed to create a completely unique material, composed of gold and ceramic, that can only be scratched by diamond.
The Big Bang Unico Full Magic Gold houses the new UNICO 2 manufacture movement (HUB 1280). Thinner, more precise and more innovative than the UNICO 1, its successor offers a power reserve of 72 hours and a 2-year warranty, extended to 3 years when registering for an Hublotista account.
The subject of several patent applications, the UNICO 2 automatic caliber comes with a gentler and quieter winding system. Its chronograph does not jump at the start, and it no longer quivers, thanks to a brand-new clutch mechanism. The UNICO 2 also offers better resistance to shocks.
Furthermore, it has retained all of the aesthetic characteristics from its predecessor, such as the highly technical and illustrative open worked design, and the signature “H” for Hublot. This results in a movement which requires less maintenance, and offers more operational efficiency following services.
