One week before Baselworld, Hublot reveals the Big Bang Unico Full Magic Gold, to celebrate the 10th Anniversary of the iconic Big Bang. New timepiece is the most scratch-resistant massive gold watch ever created: a gold that can only be altered by diamonds. The watch is crafted from Magic Gold, a noble material protected by patents, certified as 18 carats and developed by Hublot in 2011.
“The fusion of materials is in Hublot’s DNA. Four years ago, Hublot created Magic Gold, the only scratch-resistant gold in the world. Still today, Hublot is the only brand to offer this material, whose hardness is close to 1,000 Vickers, more than twice that of ‘standard’ 18 carat gold, which only reaches 400 Vickers,” Ricardo Guadalupe, CEO of Hublot said.
Hublot’s Magic Gold is a fusion of 24 carat gold (nature’s ultimate noble material) and the latest high-tech materials expertise, produced through a complex process at the company’s Nyon Manufacture facility.
This timepiece features the iconic design of the BIG BANG, with its Manufacture Chrono: the UNICO.
The first watches made from Magic Gold were presented at Baselworld 2012 in a very limited Big Bang Ferrari edition which reflected the shared DNA of the 2 brands: Exclusivity, innovation and technology.
