Another home run year for Hublot at Baselworld. This Baselworld 2018 Hublot has continued to extend the Big Bang Unico 45 mm collection with four incredible and very unique looking timepieces, one of them and a big favorite for us at WCL this year is the new Hublot Big Bang Unico Red Magic ref. 411.CF.8513.RX. Featuring an ultra glossy polished red ceramic case that is an extremely difficult material to machine, this new Hublot is as sexy as it gets. In a bright red color almost the same hue as the red used by the famous 'red soles' from Christian Louboutin, this is the perfect unisex timepiece and a watch perfectly suited for those that are not shy and live life to the max, because at the end of the day you only live once.
About the Watch
Featuring a bright polished red ceramic case and a partially openworked matte dial with applied red markers and red hands with black luminescent material, a red flange, the new Hublot Big Bang Unico Red Magic is available in a limited edition of 500 pieces. With six black plated H-shaped titanium screws, a black composite resin lower bezel, black plated titanium pushers and black rubberized crown, black plated titanium display case back, the combination between red and black is a true winner.
The case features Hublot's 'one click' interchangeable strap system and the watch is equipped with a matte red rubber with black sides and interior. The strap gets fastened by a black ceramic and black plated titanium deployant clasp.
Powering the new Hublot Big Bang Unico Red Magic is the in-house Hublot automatic flyback chrono movement HUB 1242 UNICO. The movement with black PVD treatment features a column wheel and double clutch mechanism visible on the dial side. The movement provides a power reserve of 3 days —72 hours.
On the Wrist & Pricing
On the wrist, the watch wears true to its size and with extremely cool wrist presence. This is a watch made for those that couldn't care less about what others think and for those that are in reality über cool and not just pretending they are. A great release by Hublot and a watch we hope to own in the near future. Available in a limited edition of only 500 pieces.
