‘Charlie Chaplin once said, ‘Let us work wonders together. All great achievements in history have come from our victory over seemingly impossible tasks.’ This famous saying is with us’ The concept of ‘fused art’ coincides. Today, Hublot’s first red magic watch proves that the watchmaking industry can always exceed imagination! ‘
——Ricardo Guadalupe, CEO of Hublot
‘Unique and unique’ is the philosophy that HUBLOT has always upheld. This time, Hublot has once again innovated and launched the world’s first new bright red ceramic material, showing the brand’s unlimited imagination. This new color ceramic has made innovations in the material itself and the production process. At the same time, it is superior in hardness to traditional ceramics. The superb technology under its colorful appearance is undoubtedly a masterpiece. This innovation was carefully designed and put into production by the Hublot R & D department, and has now been patented.
The Hublot R & D department and the Metallurgical and Materials Laboratory have successfully invented a process for presenting bright ceramic watches. Prior to this, the watch industry had not yet achieved such a breakthrough in ceramic technology and aesthetics. Hublot strives for excellence in every process, carefully crafting every part of this special ceramic case. From the initial idea to industrialized manufacturing, Hublot has spent four years of research and development to master this technology, and spared no effort to advance on the road of material exploration. The technology patent for this invention is currently unique to Hublot. This highly elastic new ceramic material has the characteristics of high density, which makes its hardness reach an amazing 1500HV2, far exceeding the hardness of traditional ceramic 1200HV2.
The advent of the new colored ceramics stems from major innovations. This technology combines high pressure with high heat, and can forge ceramics without firing pigments. With this unique coloring technique, Hublot will bring a series of colored ceramic watches.
This red magic ceramic watch, launched in vibrant bright red, contrasts with the strap.
Hublot’s first color ceramic watch comes out in vibrant bright red. Big Bang Unico Red Magic Watch is undoubtedly a watch with strong characteristics and passionate colors.
This watch is limited to 500 pieces. The case diameter is 45mm. The bezel is made of Hublot’s patented red ceramic and polished. The flanges, dials, minutes and seconds counters, Arabic numerals and hands are all the same bright red, matching the hue of the bezel, highlighting the mechanical differences from the Unico HUB124 self-produced movement and column wheel. The sapphire mirror dial is clearly visible. The entire watch embodies the color theme and fits well with the streamlined red natural rubber strap.
This red magic ceramic watch has a strong visual impact, making everyone love it. The combination of the ‘integrated art’ concept and innovative materials confirms the direction of Hublot’s progress: ‘Become the first, become different and become unique.’
The movement of this watch is designed, developed, manufactured and assembled by Hublot’s masters of micromechanics, engineers and watchmakers. This flyback chronograph (a unique resettable component in the watchmaking industry) is equipped with two buttons, a date indicator, dual clutch mechanism and a column wheel visible on the dial side. The counter is directly driven by the barrel, and no position bar is set in the timing device, thereby greatly improving its reliability and stability. The pallet fork and the escape wheel are fixed on a mobile platform. Both are made of silicon. The ultra-light material guarantees the performance of the watch. The Unico movement contains 330 components, a vibration frequency of 4 Hz (28,800 times / hour), and a power reserve of 72 hours.
