We have already witnessed the Spirit of Big Bang Yellow Sapphire, the Big Bang Unico Golf Yellow Carbon and this year at Watches & Wonders 2021, HUBLOT has dropped yet another brighter and sunnier addition - The Big Bang Unico Yellow Magic.

Big Bang Unico Yellow Magic

With the launch of bright red ceramic, it was said that (almost) all Pantone colours were possible for our brightly coloured ceramic, a world-first which has been patented since 2018. The Big Bang Unico Yellow Magic is not only a perfect match with Pantone's trending Illuminating Colours of the Year 2021, it is writing the future by making materials our field of innovation... a universe which knows no bounds. The strength of our innovation lies in our motto –"Be the first, be unique, be different". The best is yet to come..."

Ricardo Guadalupe, HUBLOT CEO

These bright coloured ceramics, a worlds-first have been patented by Hublot since they introduced that fiery Big Bang Red Magic in 2018. A unique process, a patented material, entirely developed and produced by the Hublot's R&D department and its Metallurgy & Materials laboratory. It took the Manufacture four years of development to find the perfect balance of temperature and pressure enabling the ceramic to be sintered without burning the pigments. Hublot has met the challenge of retaining the properties and the colorimetry of the pigments (which gives that bright pop of colour)  while increasing the wear resistance of this ceramic which they say is harder than traditional ceramics.

The flange, indexes, minute and seconds counters, Arabic numerals and hands are all in this sunny yellow, which further highlights the workings of the Unico HUB1280 manufacture movement and its column wheel that are visible on the dial side through the sapphire crystal. The brightness continues right down to its lined and structured yellow rubber strap: the Big Bang Unico Yellow Magic is here to help you enjoy the sunny side of life!
With this bright and sunny yellow ceramic, Hublot is continuing to write the story of innovation, by continually reinventing material. With the current unprecedented times that we have witnessed over the last year, one can use a happy pop of colour. Available in a limited edition of 250 pieces, the Big Bang Unico Yellow Magic adds a sense of freshness and optimism in my opinion.  Although I have to be honest here. Till I didn't physically see the Big Bang Unico Red Magic in 2018, I was appauled by the thought of that audacious size and colour on my wrist. It's one of those that you have to see to belive! I wonder how this sunny yellow will look on my wrist. Let's just say, the future seems bright...
