The Magic of Hublot Mechanics
Magic Gold meets a movement with Meccano-inspired design, casting a spell to shake up the codes of traditional watchmaking.
This watch brings together the very best of mechanics, innovation and materials.
The new Hublot Manufacture calibre – the HUB1201, whose innovative construction reveals its entire original interlocking power reserve on the dial side – sees its mechanism housed in a case made from Magic Gold, the first scratch-resistant gold and the hardest variety in the world, developed and patented by Hublot with the EPFL five years ago.
The watch is a demonstration of the journey undertaken by the Hublot Manufacture, a story peppered with world firsts. It confirms the Maison’s pioneering spirit, one which sees materials as an endless source of possibilities and movements as the opportunity to escape watchmaking norms.
A unique material, the pure product of the brand’s innovation. Only diamond is capable of machining Hublot’s 18-carat gold, certified by the Central Office for Precious Metals Control. It is the first scratch-resistant gold in the world and demonstrates a hardness of almost 1000 Vickers.
Now produced in the high-tech foundry at the Nyon Manufacture, this patented material with magical properties was created by the revolutionary fusion of 24-carat gold and ceramic.
Two parallel barrels with a rack-driven power reserve indication system, two rack sliding on a 9 o’clock to
3 o’clock axis thanks to a rack and pinion system, a double power reserve display, and a Meccano-inspired architecture for an innovative constructions. On the dial side, the Big Bang Meca-10 Magic Gold reveals the mechanics of the movement and the unusual architecture of its rack-driven 10-day power reserve.
Its manually wound skeleton mechanism displays the regulating organ at 7 o’clock, paired with small seconds. Limited to 200 pieces, the unique and atypical Big Bang MECA-10 combines the best of mechanics and Hublot’s own brand of innovation.
