31 Oct Hublot’s Big Bang MP-11 Uses Material Never Used In Watchmaking Before
When it comes to innovation, mechanical watches compared to computer systems, are hard to come by. Watchmaking is a craft, so when there is any innovation in watchmaking, we should celebrate such an achievement. The Hublot Big Bang MP-11 has something new and it looks very impressive. It’s the material that the watch is made of that makes this Big Bang stand out most.
The Big Bang MP-11 uses SAXEM (Sapphire Aluminium oXide and rare Earth Mineral) a material never before used in a craft like making watches.
The new SAXEM material is harder than emerald but brings forth a beautiful deep green look for the casing.
For the going price of $127,000, this beautiful timepiece is limited to only 20 units and sports the HUB9011 movement comprised of 270 units and has a long power reserve of 14 days.
The larger 45mm casing is something to consider as well for those who love bigger watches.
The Bottom Line
When it comes to the production of watchmaking any innovation nowadays should be celebrated and talked about throughout the communities. They easily could have made the material out of any run of the mill carbon fibre or metal, but Hublot chose to stand out, again. It’s not for everyone, but the design is so big and bold that people are going to ask about it, then you tell them all the stats above that we mentioned. It is very much a well-crafted, unique attention-getter.
