Hublot Big Bang MP-11 Red Magic
In 2018, Hublot developped of a brand new material: the first ever brightly coloured high-tech ceramic. This world exclusive, entirely developed and produced in-house, 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.
Last year, Hublot presented a Big Bang MP-11 in green SAXEM. Today, the brand is adorning the Big Bang MP-11 with its exclusive red ceramic. 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.

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.

From the outset, Hublot has embodied design and innovation that differ markedly from the established watchmaking order. With the impetus provided by Jean-Claude Biver, by 2004 these values had already become the basis of a new DNA, leading the brand, which is currently headed by Ricardo Guadalupe - its CEO since 2012, to develop particularly audacious timepieces – most of them with a highly-developed sporting aspect.Find out more >
