Hublot is innovating once again with a new, bright-coloured, intense ceramic for the case of a flyback chronograph. Red is the colour!

Over the years, the fusion of materials at Hublot has become much more than a simple marketing concept. With the launch of the Magic Gold in 2011, the brand showed its determination to explore the possibilities offered by combining materials to provide real aesthetic alternatives. This year, during Baselworld 2018, ceramics took pride of place with the Big Bang Unico Red Magic model. To produce the deep red colour of the 45mm-wide case, Hublot completely redesigned the manufacturing methods for the material, using high temperatures to bring out brighter colours. And the cherry on the cake is that the final result is even more intense than regular ceramics and completely non-porous. From an aesthetic point of view, the contrast with the skeletoned dial is striking. The chronograph totaliser, the running seconds, the hour markers and large hands are the same colour as the case, and coated with black luminous material for extra relief.

The timepiece comes in a limited series of 500 pieces and is equipped with a self-winding chronograph movement with a silicon anchor and escapement wheel. The performances of the calibre HUB1242 are symbolised for the watch owners by a generous autonomy of 72 hours. With the flyback function, short-time measurements can be instantly reset with a single press on the monopusher at 2 o’clock.
