The Incredibly Durable Hublot Big Bang Unico Full Magic Gold Watch

Hublot is celebrating the 10th anniversary of its acclaimed Big Bang collection with the unveiling of the Big Bang Unico Full Magic Gold timepiece, just before of its official debut during Baselworld 2015.

Its distinguishing feature is the fact that it is made using the Swiss watchmaker’s patented alloy known as Magic Gold, the world’s only scratch-resistant gold (1,000 Vickers!), which was developed by the company and certified as 18-carat. The timepiece is part of a series which goes back to 2012, when the very exclusive Big Bang Ferrari edition was released (also during Baselworld). This impressive material, more than twice as durable as ‘normal’ 18-carat gold, is so strong it can only be altered using diamond, and is the result of a very complex process which took three years to perfect.

This gold watch comes with a 45 mm polished Magic Gold case, with the bezel made from the same material, while the sapphire crystal features an interior/exterior anti-reflective coating and a gilt Hublot logo. Movement is the HUB 1242 UNICO with anthracite grey treatment, developed and manufactured in-house by Hublot. It has an automatic flyback chronograph with column wheel and double clutch visible on the dial side, and is water resistant to 100 meters.

Hublot has no released any details yet regarding the price for the timepiece (which it will do during Baselworld), but we do know the Swiss brand will only be making 250 units available.
