Hublot has revealed an impressive timepiece to celebrate the 10th anniversary of their iconic Big Bang sereis.
The Big Bang Unico Full Magic Gold is a watch crafted from the company’s patented gold alloy, which bills itself the only scratch-resistant gold on the market. The timepiece is 18K gold.
“The fusion of materials is in Hublot’s DNA. Four years ago, Hublot created Magic Gold, the only scratch-resistant gold in the world,” Ricardo Guadalupe, CEO of Hublot, said. “Still today, Hublot is the only brand to offer this material, whose hardness is close to 1,000 Vickers, more than twice that of ‘standard’ 18 carat gold, which only reaches 400 Vickers.”
The process of creating Hublot’s magic gold is complex, combining baron carbide powder, 24K gold alloy, molten liquid gold, and other chemicals and exposing them to high heat and pressure.
The Big Bang Unico Full Magic Gold is set to have its official debut at Baselworld 2015 where pricing and production details will be announced.
