Several years following what more likely to be termed the relaunch of Swiss Imitation Hublot, Jean-Claude Biver fulfilled a fantasy: a the beginning of 2011, the firm moved into their own 6,000 square meter production line in Nyon's industrial quarter. The move provides for a harbinger of the company's first independent movement calibers, which have been scheduled to get in serial production in the near future. The current financial crisis has positioned the brakes on this ambitious plan only somewhat: after 2010, 150 employees are scheduled to end populating most of of the modern, light-filled workshops. The remaining area is accessible to benches continue being free for future inclusions in the watchmaking staff as well. In 2010, Hublot imitation announced its very own movement design, a a bit more modified form of the tried-and-tested Valjoux chronograph caliber 7750 whose patent defense ran out after thirty years.
One of several initial developers of the reliable Valjoux caliber, took on the style work for this original mechanism and developed the alterations in elements as a way to cater to the use of a special alloy rather than the brass that is normally evident in the watchmaking industry for plates and bridges. The term Ag5 identifies an exceedingly light, very resistant alloy composed of magnesium mineral and aluminum and that is usually only used in making airplanes. An exclusive surface treatment seals along with solidifies the materials, which is not specifically unproblematic concerning oxidation. Notably notable is always that the case and buckle from the Mag Bang model are also available in precisely the same matte gleaming precious metal.
