Sunny, radiant, optimistic…it makes you feel so good this happy pop of bright Blue! In addition to its unmissable on-trend look, it is sporting the colours of the technological feat to which the Swiss watchmaker now holds the secret.
Innovation without limits
Blue Magic, the name of the new brightly coloured high-tech ceramic created by Hublot which has been predestined since the arrival of its red ceramic in 2018. A unique process, a patented material, entirely developed and produced by the Manufacture's R&D department and its Metallurgy & Materials laboratory. Four years of development to find the perfect balance of temperature and pressure enabling the ceramic to be sintered without burning the pigments. Hublot has met the challenge of retaining the properties and the colorimetry of the pigments while increasing the wear resistance of this ceramic which is harder than traditional ceramics (1350 HV versus 1200 HV). No more black and white! Thanks to Hublot ceramic is available in all colours – red, blue, beige, green and now yellow! With this perfect fusion of performance and stylish looks, Hublot is continuing to write the story of innovation, by continually reinventing material
Big Bang Unico Blue Magic
Available in a limited edition of 500 pieces, the solar power of its 42-mm case and its bezel shine in the light of this blue ceramic. In an ultra-invigorating colour palette, the flange, indexes, minute and seconds counters, Arabic numerals and hands are all in this sunny yellow, to highlight the mechanism of the Unico HUB1280 manufacture movement and its column wheel, visible on the dial side through the sapphire crystal. The brightness continues right down to its lined and structured yellow rubber strap: the Big Bang Unico Blue Magic is here to help you enjoy the sunny side of life!
By developing its own automatic chronograph movement, Hublot wanted it to be – like all of its creations – the first, different and unique. As the soul of the watch, this movement with an “open heart” reveals its completely re-imagined design, with double coupling system and column-wheel from the dial side as well as a 72-hour power reserve. Its construction of 354 components has been simplified as much as possible to improve reliability and robustness.
For Hublot, materials are an integral part of their watches’ design. They must complement their design, while protecting their mechanism and withstand the test of time. As such, the Manufacture has chosen to use high-tech ceramic for certain bezels and cases; it is an ultra-tough and almost entirely scratch-proof material (apart from the diamond) with a base of zirconium sintered at very high temperatures.
