BIG BANG MP-11 RED MAGIC

BIG BANG MP-11 RED MAGIC

Fusion in the colour of passion

 

 

Drawing the gaze with its striking bright red case in high-tech ceramic, entirely developed and produced by Hublot… This model reinvents horological performance, with a manufacture movement offering an unparalleled power reserve of 14 days via seven barrels which are visible from the dial side. Available in a limited edition of 100 pieces, the new Big Bang MP-11 Red Magic embodies the full splendour of Hublot’s Art of Fusion.

In 2018, Hublot revolutionised the world of watch design and technology with the creation of a brand new material: the first ever brightly coloured high-tech ceramic. This world exclusive, entirely developed and produced in-house at the manufacture’s R&D department and its Metallurgy and Materials laboratory, was protected by three patents covering both the material itself and its machining processes for case components. The secret was finding the right balance between temperature and pressure so as to keep the red pigments intact. Up to this point, only black and white ceramics had been used in watchmaking. The manufacture gained a significant lead in materials research, opening up new avenues in terms of both aesthetics and performance.
Hublot is adorning the Big Bang MP-11 with its exclusive red ceramic symbolising passion, power, endeavour and glory. Fully polished, this original case and bezel material offers a distinctive contrast with the iconic H-shaped screws of the Big Bang in black titanium, and with the crown and the strap in black rubber – another of the manufacture’s signatures. The result: a bold, striking and innovative design in the true spirit of Hublot.
A unique movement
Effortlessly embodying the Art of Fusion, this state-of-the-art red ceramic is paired with a Hublot manufacture movement offering unrivalled performance and design. Featuring an innovative and spectacular construction which can be admired through the transparent dial, the Hublot calibre HUB9011 manual-winding skeletonised movement offers an exceptional power reserve of two weeks via seven series-coupled barrels. To enable energy to be transmitted between the horizontal barrel arbor and the vertical gears controlling the hour and minute display, the designers made use of a system rarely employed in watchmaking: a 90-degree helical worm gear. To create an aesthetic balance with this helical gear, which is visible at 10 o’clock, the balance, made from anthracite ruthenium, was moved to the dial side in a symmetrical position at 2 o’clock.
This movement, comprising 270 components, is also notable for its patented index-assembly system, its silicon escapement and its black platinum bridges. The Big Bang MP-11 Red Magic is wound manually using the large fluted crown with worm screw type relief that echoes the helical gear, or an electric Torx stylus inspired by the world of motor racing.

HUBLOT

 

Founded in Switzerland in 1980, HUBLOT is defined by its innovative concept, which began with the highly original combination of gold and rubber. This “Art of Fusion” stems from the imagination of its visionary Chairman, Jean-Claude Biver, and has been driven forward by CEO Ricardo Guadalupe since 2012.

 

The release of the iconic, multi-award-winning Big Bang in 2005 paved the way for new flagship collections (Classic Fusion, Spirit of Big Bang), with complications ranging from the simple to thehighly sophisticated, establishing the extraordinary DNA of the Swiss watchmaking house and ensuring its impressive growth.

 

Keen to preserve its traditional and cutting-edge expertise, and guided by its philosophy to “Be First, Different and Unique”, the Swiss watchmaker is consistently ahead of the curve, through its innovations in materials (scratch-resistant Magic Gold, ceramics in vibrant colours, sapphire), and the creation of Manufacture movements (Unico, Meca-10, Tourbillon).

 

HUBLOT is fully committed to creating a Haute Horlogerie brand with a visionary future: a future which is fused with the key events and brands of our times (FIFA World CupTM, UEFA Champions LeagueTM, UEFA EUROTM and Ferrari) and the finest ambassadors our era has to offer (Kylian Mbappé, Usain Bolt, Pelé).
