Hublot’s Big Bang Unico Full Magic Gold is a celebratory limited-edition that fuses two of the brand’s most important offerings — the Hublot Big Bang Unico Full Magic Gold model, and the patented magic gold alloy material.
Dubbed by Hublot as the “first scratch-proof 18k gold,” the watch case is crafted from polished magic gold. The watch is attired in the model’s iconic 44mm sandwich construction, alongside the usual features such as the large pushers, skeleton dial, the 6 unaligned screws on the case, and the interchangeable rubber strap. Powering the timepiece is Hublot’s in-house self-winding UNICO 2 chronograph movement, geared with 72 hours of running time and water resistance of 10 ATM.
Speaking on this special time-teller, Hublot’s CEO, Ricardo Guadalupe says, “We first launched it in 2005, which means that this year, the Big Bang is turning eighteen! A major milestone for Hublot, but also for the industry, in that it created not only its own look, spirit, universe, and technical achievements but also its own large community of fans and collectors. At the same time, at 18, it remains as fresh and carefree as the day it was released. The Big Bang still has a lot to say. The proof is in this “Full Magic Gold” version, which truly embodies the essence of our Manufacture.”
Hublot’s Big Bang Collection continues to take shape as the luxury Swiss watchmaker’s most popular model, incorporating new designs and materials to evolve its lineup. Celebrating 18 years of the Big Bang, Hublot is excited to commemorate the occasion with the release of its new Hublot Big Bang Unico Full Magic Gold. The 44m Big Bang UNICO features a “sandwich” construction created from Hublot’s in-house developed scratch-resistant Magic Gold. A skeletonized dial design showcases the meticulous craftsmanship of Hublot’s watchmakers, displaying Arabic numerals and skeleton Big Bang hands.
The Hublot Big Bang Unico Full Magic Gold uses a thinner, more precise, and more innovative in-house HUB1280 self-winding chronograph movement. A sapphire crystal backcase reveals a secondary view of the movement in action, with each piece engraved with its specific production number on the outer portion. Hublot equips the functional Big Bang UNICO with a comfortable black structure-line rubber strap. The all-new Replica Hublot Big Bang UNICO Magic Gold is limited to only 20 pieces and is currently available for $230.
