The Hublot Maison strives to be on the forefront of innovation in watchmaking. Everything is considered and reconsidered to find the best that it can be. Even gold with its natural timelessness went under the microscope, and, it’s stunning to say, that they have achieved a little something that they like to call MAGIC GOLD; only diamond is capable of machining Hublot’s 18-carat gold, certified by the Central Office for Precious Metals Control. It is the first scratch-resistant gold in the world and demonstrates a hardness of almost 1000 Vickers. Now produced in the high-tech foundry at the Nyon Manufacture, this patented material with magical properties was created by the revolutionary fusion of 24-carat gold and ceramic.
The HUB1201, the newest Hublot Manufacture calibre, is an innovative construction which reveals its entire original interlocking power reserve on the dial side – sees its mechanism housed in a case made from Magic Gold, the first scratch-resistant gold and the hardest variety in the world, developed and patented by Hublot with the EPFL five years ago. This watch brings together the very best of mechanics, innovation and materials.
Limited to only 200 pieces this is a precious step forward in creating even more ground breaking progress pushing the concepts of horologerie even further. Who can say where gold as hard as diamonds could take the manufacturing process? It’s an exciting and dynamic addition for the collector of timepieces with a love of science.
