The newly announced Hublot Big Bang Meca-10 Magic Gold fuses the very best of mechanics, innovation and materials. The timepiece incorporates the new HUB1201 calibre( whose innovative construction reveals its entire original interlocking power reserve on the dial side) and a case made from Magic Gold, the first scratch-resistant gold and the hardest variety in the world, developed and patented by Hublot with the EPFL five years ago. Limited to 200 pieces, the unique and atypical Big Bang MECA-10 combines the best of mechanics and Hublot’s own brand of innovation.
The Big Bang Meca-10 embodies the journey undertaken by the Hublot Manufacture and represents the Maison’s pioneering spirit. Its Meccano-inspired design harmonies with a case made from Magic Gold. Only diamond is capable of machining Hublot’s 18-carat gold, certified by the Central Office for Precious Metals Control. It is the first scratch-resistant gold in the world and demonstrates a hardness of almost 1000 Vickers. Now produced in the high-tech foundry at the Nyon Manufacture, this patented material with magical properties was created by the revolutionary fusion of 24-carat gold and ceramic.
Two parallel barrels with a rack-driven power reserve indication system, two racks sliding on a 9 o’clock to 3 o’clock axis thanks to a rack and pinion system, a double power reserve display, and a Meccano-inspired architecture for an innovative construction. On the dial side, the Big Bang Meca-10 Magic Gold showcases the mechanics of the movement and the unusual architecture of its rack-driven 10-day power reserve. Its manually wound skeleton mechanism displays the regulating organ at 7 o’clock, paired with small seconds.
