The red-tinted sapphire crystal gets its hue from the addition of chemical components directly to the material during its development, which makes the color unalterable. The Big Bang Ferrari “Red Magic Carbon” — as do both other models — comes with two straps, in black and red schedoni leather stitches onto black rubber; it is a limited edition of 1,000 pieces, priced at $32,100.
The “King Gold Carbon” model is limited to 500 pieces (price: $43,600) and has a carbon fiber bezel with six H-shaped black-PVD titanium screws. Like the “Red Magic Carbon” model, its hands are coated with White Super-LumiNova. The crown and pushers, like the 45-mm case, are in Hublot’s proprietary “King Gold.”
The Hublot Big Bang Ferrari Ceramic (below) has a black ceramic case and bezel; the bezel has a brushed finish, a rarity in ceramic watch cases, most of which have polished finishes. Its hands are coated with black Super-LumiNova. Like the King Gold, its titanium bezel screws are coated in black PVD; those of the Red Magic are in polished titanium. This model is limited to 1,000 pieces, at $29,800.
