Baselworld 2017: Hublot Big Bang Meca-10 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. Produced in the high-tech foundry at the Nyon Manufacture, this patented material was created by the revolutionary fusion of 24-carat gold and ceramic.

The Hublot HUB1201 calibre embedded in a 45 mm case offers two parallel barrels with a rack-driven power reserve indication system. The latter is sliding on a “9 o’clock” to “3 o’clock” axis made possible by¬†a rack and pinion system, a double power reserve display, and a Meccano-inspired architecture. On the dial side, the¬†Big Bang Meca-10 Magic Gold¬†reveals the mechanics of the movement and the unusual architecture of its rack-driven 10-day power reserve. Its manually wound skeleton mechanism is showcasing¬†the regulating organ at “7 o’clock” (21.600 A/h), paired with small seconds.
