On the occasion of the 10th anniversary of HUBLOT Hublot Big Bang, and one week before the opening of the 2015 Basel International Watch and Jewellery, Hublot today launched the Big Bang Unico full magic gold watch. !!
This watch perfectly combines classic tradition with the innovative spirit of the 21st century. It also integrates Hublot’s three strong sounds: the independently developed revolutionary world’s only scratch-resistant 18K synthetic gold ‘magic gold’ and the Big Bang series logo Design and independent research and development of the UNICO chronograph movement. The three iconic innovations complement each other and compose a new masterpiece of fusion.
Hublot Global CEO Ricardo Guadalupe said: ‘The fusion of materials is always flowing in Hublot’s blood and is an indispensable brand DNA. 4 years ago, Hublot created The only scratch-resistant gold in the world, Magic Gold. Today, Hublot is still the only brand that can create this epoch-making material! The ordinary 18K gold Vickers hardness is only 400, and the magic gold Vickers hardness is nearly 1,000. That’s more than twice the average 18K gold. ‘
Magic Gold has been patented and officially certified as 18K synthetic gold by the Central Office for Precious Metals Control. Developed by Hublot and the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Switzerland, after months of trial and error and fine-tuning, it finally appeared.
Since the advent of ‘Magic Gold’ in November 2011, Hublot has also officially announced its superior ability to independently produce gold and ceramic composite precious metals. Thanks to cutting-edge scientific research technology and top-level production facilities, the Hublot factory in Nyon, Switzerland has undoubtedly become an important production base for ceramic firing and metal forging in the industry.
As we all know, this revolutionary extraordinary metal is an intelligent product that combines 24K pure gold with the latest cutting-edge materials. Parts made of this material need to undergo extremely complicated manufacturing processes: First, the boron carbide ceramic powder is introduced into a silicon model, and the ceramic powder is pressed into a compact embryonic body structure by cold pressing. After high temperature treatment, the ceramic particles are connected into a hard porous structure. After the treatment is completed, 24K pure gold and 3% liquid gold composite are poured into the embryo body under the environment filled with inert gas at high temperature and pressure, until the gold molecules have completely penetrated and filled each void of the ceramic embryo body. The seamless fusion between them makes it into the ‘Magic Gold’ which is extremely hard and noble in color.
After nearly three years of unremitting research, Hublot, as the Swiss watch industry’s innovative leader, finally cast an unprecedented precious metal material, ‘Magic Gold’, which is stable and permanent, while taking into account its own characteristics. At the Baselworld 2012, the first Big Bang Ferrari Magic Gold Limited Watch with ‘Magic Gold’ was officially launched, perfectly interpreting the brand genes shared by Hublot and Ferrari in terms of independent innovation and technological excellence. .
