The MP-11 model line of watches is now greeted with two new exclusive cases by Hublot. The first case being the scratch-resistant Magic Gold alloy while the second case is Blue Sapphire. While the watch in itself houses an incredible movement the two cases of the watch might just steal the spotlight from that movement.
Both of these watches are limited to 50 pieces each, and as expected they retail at quite a significant price which will be discussed further down below. The first watch to talk about will be the Hublot Big Bang MP-11 Power Reserve 14 Days Magic Gold which has a case size of 45mm. The case is made out of polished 18K Magic Gold. If you are wondering what Magic Gold is, it is Hublot’s own invention which is the first scratch-proof gold that was ever made or that exists. This was first unveiled in 2011, this Magic Gold is also certified as 18K gold and has a hardness rating of 1,000 Vickers in comparison to normal 18K gold which has a hardness rating of 400 Vickers. Hublot has refused other brands and manufacturers in being able to purchase their Magic Gold manufacturing recipe or secret and it is patented, so safe to say this will always be with Hublot.
As for the scratch-resistant claims so far no one who has owned their previous models with Magic Gold has noticed or pointed out any scratches or signs of wear on their watch which is enough proof as to the claims made by Hublot. While the Blue Sapphire is pretty much as mentioned by its name the case is made entirely out of blue sapphire. While they are both skeleton style watches the Blue Sapphire is fully translucent which gives the watch a much more unique look in comparison to the Magic Gold version.
Both watches come in a case size of 45mm and have the iconic Hublot skeleton style to show that impressive movement. It has the HUB9011 movement which is a manual skeleton movement that also has a power reserve movement in the shape of a cylinder with a display roll. This is to show that impressive 14 day power reserve just in case you forget in two weeks to wind the watch. They are both very impressive watches as to what they have achieved both in the case as well as that movement. The Magic Gold version comes with a black rubber strap while the Blue Sapphire version comes with a blue rubber strap and they are both paired with a black-plated titanium and ceramic deployant clasp. As mentioned before they are both limited to 50 pieces each and the Magic Gold version starts at $89,500 while the Blue Sapphire version starts at $132,000 and is available through authorised dealers.
