Master of the Art of Fusion: Hublot Big Bang MP-11 3D Carbon

Master of the Art of Fusion, Hublot presents the Big Bang MP-11 in 3D carbon, it is a polymer matrix composite which is reinforced by a three-dimensional carbon fibre weave.

The new Big Bang MP-11, streamlined in 3D carbon offers a spectacular view of the 7 series-coupled barrels and the in-line power reserve indicator. To transport the force provided by the mainspring barrels to the rest of the gear train, Hublot employs a 90-degree helical worm gear, which they balance out on the dial by placing the balance on the opposite side. As another unique feature of this innovative calibre, the balance is transposed to the dial side to create symmetry with the helical gear. Vibrating at 4 Hz, it also features a newly patented index-assembly system.

The MP-11 is a featherlight champion, as thanks to the three-dimensional carbon, it only weighs 90 grams, strap included. The 45mm openwork case reveals the engine inspired architecture. Protected by the US military, this high-tech material is making its debut appearance in watchmaking. All combined this makes the MP-11 another great example of what extraordinary watches can come forward from the Art of Fusion.
