HUBLOT "Mag-Bang"

Still not a fan of Hublot but at least they are really doing interesting stuff with alternative materials. Magnesium is not generally preferred by watch manufacturer yet with the peculiar case construction of the Bang this is easy and not excessively expensive. It is refreshing to see that more and more manufacturers are moving away from traditional/conservative materials. Especially since the standard answer in the trade is; "No, it can't be done". Too bad others don't take note. The total weight will be 72 grams. There will be 250 units, not many considering how popular the regular production model is.

In this case I like the PVD movement finish (a bit too similar to the Richard Mille RM005 though...).
