The “magic gold” used in this timepiece is a finely crafted gold alloy. It involves compressing a ceramic powder called boron nitride in a mold and subjecting it to temperatures in excess of 2,000 degrees Celsius in a furnace. The heat melts the ceramic particles, creating a porous structure. Liquid 24K gold is then infused into the material under high pressure. The resulting composite is gold standard 18K pure and contains a substantial amount of gold.
The new generation Big Bang Unico Full Magic Gold comes in a 44mm case crafted from this extraordinary magic gold. Its unique shape, sandwich construction and oversized buttons create a unique visual identity. The bezel is also made of magic gold, and the six misaligned functional screws are particularly eye-catching, adding a touch of personality to the design. The skeletonized dial pays homage to the previous model, but this time there is no red accents to distinguish it from the 2015 edition.
Powering the timepiece is the self-winding chronograph Unico 2 movement, which consists of 354 components. The HUB1280 Unico integrated flyback chronograph movement runs at 28,800vph for accurate timekeeping. Additionally, the movement offers a 72-hour power reserve for extended use before needing to be wound up.
