How It’s Made – Hublot Magic Gold Watches
Author: Next Luxury
ill bet my phone tells the time just the same. all that tech going into something so redundant
just gonna go ahead and say this. if you own a gold watch or piece of jewelery and are careless enough to get it scratched, then i guess you don’t deserve to own it to begin with.
Amazing video man..I liked it.
All that for an ugly watch, not to mention the ugly color.
thats cool but it doesnt even look like gold anymore, it looks like brass or something
This is a metal matrix composite or cermet. Been done in aerospace for years (decades?). One way is a porous ceramic with a metal infused into the gaps.
This isn’t a gold alloy, and I doubt Hublot actually has a patent for this. This looks like liquid state pressure infiltration. The only thing Hublot has done is keeping the weight of the ceramic to 25% that of gold so they can mark the finished product .750/18k.
The gold itself isn’t any harder, it’s soft, pure gold protected and supported by hard pieces of ceramic on a microscopic scale.
Plus it’s uuuuugly.
that’s amazing but it’s color is hideous
Hublot is dog shit
it’s cool, but the color is No good, not gold anymore.
Platinum is the most noble metal. I’d almost include just rhodium
