Die-hard Hublot fans won’t want to miss the Swiss watchmaker’s latest variation of its emblematic Big Bang model.

Just in time for high summer, the iconic luxury manufacturer has launched a new Big Bang timepiece in an ultra-limited run of just 200 pieces.

As you can no doubt glean from its shimmering exterior, what makes this latest model truly shine is Hublot’s signature Magic Gold alloy. First unveiled in 2011, the patented material is a blend of 24K gold and ceramic, resulting in a durable, scratchproof form of 18K gold.

The new Big Bang Unico Full Magic Gold features the alloy on both its case and bezel, coordinating in lustre with the satin-finished, microblasted 3N gold on the indices, counters and hands.

Not only is the watch daring and refined, it’s technically impressive, too. Beating at the heart of the Big Bang is the new Unico 2 manufacture movement, providing approximately 72 hours of power.

“We first launched it in 2005 , which means that this year, the Big Bang is turning eighteen. A major milestone for Hublot, but also for the industry, in that it created not only its own look, spirit, universe, and technical achievements, but also its own large community of fans and collectors,” says Ricardo Guadalupe, Hublot’s CEO, on the history and heritage of the Big Bang.

“At the same time, at 18, it remains as fresh and carefree as the day it was released. The Big Bang still has a lot to say. The proof is in this “Full Magic Gold” version, which truly embodies the essence of our manufacture.”
