Hublot, known for its audacious designs and innovative timepiece technologies, once again shocks the world of haute horlogerie with the Big Bang Unico Full Magic Gold. This limited edition timepiece, with only 200 pieces available, is a fusion of two pillars of the Hublot universe: the iconic Big Bang Unico and the brand’s unique Magic Gold alloy.
This new offering from Hublot is more than just a wristwatch; it’s a return to basics. As much as it is a celebration of the brand’s iconic design, it’s also a homage to the disruptive spirit that embodies Hublot. Its aesthetic is undoubtedly a BIG BANG – powerful, modern, and disruptive. The watch features a characteristic 44 mm case, large pushers, a bezel with 6 visible, unaligned, functional screws, a skeleton dial, and the brand’s own One Click interchangeable rubber strap system.
Exteriors That Exude Complicated Brilliance
Taking the exterior aesthetics of the Big Bang Unico to a whole new level, Hublot has managed to transform it into an art form. The incorporation of the brand’s Magic Gold alloy not only makes this timepiece stronger and more brilliant but also raises it to the ranks of a true complication. This edition, limited to just 200 pieces, showcases the Magic Gold on both the case and the bezel, creating an impressive contrast with the other components of the watch, such as the titanium pushers, guards, screws, and the deepest black rubber strap.
The Magic Gold is not just a mere variant of the precious metal; it’s a marvel of innovation, exclusive to Hublot. Unveiled in 2011, Magic Gold is a fusion of 24-carat gold with ceramic using high-tech processes. This patented, unalterable, and scratchproof 18K gold, with a hardness rating of 1000 Vickers, can only be scratched by diamond.
Technological Accomplishment At Its Heart
Underneath the dazzling exterior of the Big Bang Unico Full Magic Gold is the UNICO 2 manufacture movement (HUB 1280). This new movement is thinner, more precise, and more innovative than its predecessor, the UNICO 1. This timepiece offers a power reserve of 72 hours and comes with a 2-year warranty, which can be extended to 3 years when registering for a Hublotista account.
The UNICO 2 boasts a gentler and quieter winding system, a non-jumping chronograph, and better resistance to shocks, among other improvements. It retains the highly technical and illustrative open-worked design of its predecessor, along with the signature ‘H’ for Hublot. This improved movement requires less maintenance and offers more operational efficiency following services, providing a more enjoyable experience for collectors and daily users alike.
The Hublot Big Bang Unico Full Magic Gold is indeed a perfect blend of Hublot’s commitment to tradition, innovation, and unrivaled craftsmanship. It continues the legacy of the Big Bang Unico line while adding a unique twist with the integration of magic gold, making this timepiece a remarkable addition to any luxury watch collection. With this release, Hublot once again asserts its position at the forefront of luxury watchmaking.
