Hublot Wins The Red Dot Award, Product Design: Best Of The Best 2017


Hublot’s Big Bang MECA-10 Magic Gold watch has won first prize: “Best of the Best” at the Red Dot Award.

After having examined the 5,500 creations of participants from 54 different countries, a jury of 40 professors, journalists and independent designers chose to give the highest distinction of the Red Dot Awards: Product Design, “the Red Dot: Best of Best 2017” to the Hublot Big Bang Meca-10 Magic Gold watch.

The Red Dot Award is a competition organised by Design Zentrum Nordrhein Westfalen in Germany. It was created in 1955 by rewarding for the first time the most worthy designs of the period. Since the nineties, Professor Doctor Peter Zec has taken this institution to the top at an international level. A Red Dot Award is like an Oscar in the film world, it is the ultimate award.

This prize acknowledges the immense work that went into the development of the Meca-10 Magic Gold model, a concentration of the best of what Hublot has to offer in high-quality watchmaking, technique, innovation and aesthetics. This watch achieves the exploit of balancing the retro and the futuristic

A TIMEPIECE AS FASCINATING AS CHILD’S PLAY
The BIG BANG MECA-10 is the very archetype of the Hublot philosophy. The watch is a demonstration of the journey undertaken by the Hublot Manufacture, a story peppered with world firsts. It confirms the Maison’s pioneering spirit, one which sees materials as an endless source of possibilities and movements as the opportunity to escape watchmaking norms.

MAGIC GOLD – A unique material, the pure product of the brand’s innovation
Only diamond is capable of machining Hublot’s 18-carat gold, certified by the Central Office for Precious Metals Control. It is the first scratch-resistant gold in the world and demonstrates a hardness of almost 1000 Vickers. Now produced in the high-tech foundry at the Nyon Manufacture, this patented material with magical properties was created by the revolutionary fusion of 24-carat gold and ceramic.
