Red ceramic is here thanks to Hublot and its materials workshop. In all black and red, the Big Bang Unico Red Magic Replica will feature a red ceramic bezel and case. What’s the big deal you ask? It is all in the color.
What did Hublot do in order to make a red ceramic material? Experiment a lot it appears.Red Magic ceramic is said to be about 300 vickers harder than most standard zirconium dioxide ceramic materials and then there is that perfect, uniform, cherry red color. Many people are immediately thinking of Rolex right now, and the red & blue “Pepsi bezel” GMT-Master II watch.
Ceramic parts are first formed and then baked to harden. After they are baked they are machined to shape and then polished. One of the traditional problems with non-dark or non-pigment-free ceramic is that the heat during the baking process ruins the pigments. Cheap Hublot Replica claims that their patented process for making Red Magic ceramic uses a combination of both high-pressure and heat during the sintering process. More so, Hublot claims the process works for more colors than just red, so expect to possibly see a Big Bang Magic Blue, Magic Yell
