Hublot at Baselworld
The new novelties from Hublot who continue to innovate with a range of remarkable timepieces.

Big Bang Unico Red Magic
In 2011, Hublot created Magic Gold, the world’s most scratch resistant 18 carat Gold, thanks to an alloy boron carbide (ceramic) and 24 carat Gold, the Swiss watch brand has devoted its innovative approach to ceramic. The invention of a new material – the first vibrantly coloured ceramic – Hublot has once again achieved a world’s first. Designed and produced in-house, by the Hublot R&D team, this invention has been patented. A triple tour de force, the coloured ceramic is innovative in both the material itself and the manufacturing process. In addition to the vibrant colour, it is also harder than conventional ceramics.

Big Bang Unico 42mm
In 2010, Hublot launched its new manufacture movement, the Unico chronograph, which was fitted in its iconic Big Bang model in 2013. Fully designed, developed, machined and assembled by Hublot’s own engineers, micro-mechanics and watchmakers, this chronograph movement went under the codename of Unico HUB 1242. Five years on, the watchmakers from the Nyon manufacture have reworked the structure to offer the all new Unico movement that’s considerably slimmer; giving it perfect dimensions for the 42mm case of the new Big Bang.

The Navitimer Super 8 expresses the distinctive, practical design elements of the Reference 637 in a big, bold wristwatch that is set to be one of the stars of this year’s collection.
