Swiss watch maker Hublot has declared that it will launch a brand-new Big Bang UNICO watch at Baselworld 2018, and the major news is that it will be presented as a limited edition collection using a red ceramic case and bezel. The brand new Hublot Big Bang UNICO Red Magic will be limited to just 500 pieces, and its desirability amongst luxury watch collectors stems from the difficulty in manufacturing a good-looking and consistent ceramic case in crimson. While white and black ceramic is a fairly simple process of watchmakers, and blue and brown are becoming increasingly more popular, red ceramic was exceptionally difficult to produce as it’s tended to end up blotchy and discoloured. Hublot has a history of making an assortment of fascinating materials, such as a gold alloy mixed with ceramic called Magic Gold, in their substances lab in Switzerland, and this is where the brand has been perfecting the ceramic ceramic. The watchmaker has stated that the Red Magic ceramic is about 300 Vickers more demanding than normal zirconium dioxide ceramic materials, and this also helps Hublot watches create the vivid, uniform cherry red color and improve the situation’s scratch resistance. Furthermore, the manufacturer has said that the red-coloured ceramic generated by Hublot Research & Development was produced totally in-house and that the procedure they used to reach make it’s been improved. The method contains a combo of high-pressure and warmth during the sintering process, and Hublot asserts that it functions for more colors other than red, so the Big Bang UNICO Red Magic may end up being the very first of a continuing collection of colour-themed ceramic watches. The red ceramic instance measures at 45mm wide and 15.4mm thick with an outstanding water resistance of 100 metres. The red motif proceeds on the black dial, with all the hands and hour markers enhancing the watch’s legibility as a result of their matte red colour scheme. Underneath the dial up and powering the watch is the automatic Hublot UNICO calibre HUB 1242 chronograph movement, which functions at 4Hz and supplies 72 hours of power reserve.
Sa simplified variant of this immensely popular Big Bang, the timeless Fusion has a thinner profile with a less-crowded dial. So, it retains the iconic porthole event layout, and the daring hour markers and hands that produce the Big Bang so familiar. Both case sizes, 42mm or 44mm, are available in either steel or red gold
