In order to find the perfect coordination between the movement and the case, Hublot’s engineers and chemists sought a transparent material to make the heart of the watch admired, while being strong enough to effectively protect the movement and resist active life. pressure. This is why the brand has established itself as a synthetic sapphire expert. Synthetic sapphire is a high-tech material that has provided innovative colors (black, blue, red, yellow) and unique in the watchmaking process Aesthetic effect-turn every watch into a work of art.
Hublot stands out with its comprehensive grasp of the industrialization of sapphire, enabling it to produce a series of hundreds of watches, not just some special parts. The main challenge involves obtaining a material with uniform color, no impurities, no bubbles, and no cracks, the manufacture of which can be repeated in the same way in terms of quality and aesthetics. A complicated and expensive process. The extremely high hardness of sapphire also requires specific processing methods.
The master makers of sapphire crystal cases, previously presented in transparent, black, yellow, blue and red, now Hublot announced a new color for its transparent sapphire palette: orange.
This aesthetic novelty matches the high-end technical feat in the new Big Bang Tourbillon Automatic Orange Sapphire.
Due to the combination of titanium and chromium in the complex manufacturing process, a new appearance of orange orange (the world’s first fully transparent sapphire) is realized.
The technical tone of six H-shaped titanium screws enhances the translucent and finely polished bezel and case, which is unique to the Big Bang design. The diameter of the watch is 45 mm, the thickness is 15.30 mm, and the water resistance is 30 meters/100 feet.
The newly-manufactured MHUB6035 tourbillon movement beats at a frequency of 3 Hz or 21,600 vibrations per hour. It is not only equipped with automatic winding and ceramic ball bearings, but also uses a reinvented structure. The micro-rotor and three can be seen on the dial side. Sapphire. bridge.
The tourbillon cage at 6 o’clock rotates once a minute to compensate for the influence of gravity on the running speed.
The miniature rotor is refined from 22 carats of gray gold and is delicately decorated (beveled, sandblasted and sandblasted). It is located at 12 o’clock to visually balance the tourbillon, ensuring at least three days (72 Hours) power reserve. .
The orange luminous coating enhances the clarity of the pointer and index finger.
This cheap watch is equipped with a transparent orange rubber strap with embossed lining and is fastened to the wrist through the patented One Click interchangeability system and a titanium unfolding clasp.
