Hublot Aero Bang Drive ACF(Automobile Club de France) Limited Edition

Swiss luxury watch brand Hublot has partnered with AUTOMOBILE CLUB DE FRANCE, the oldest Automobile club in the world, to create a limited edition watch in the AFC colours, and a percentage of the royalties from which will be donated to the Fondation ICM (Institute for Cerebral and Medullary Disorders).
Since its very beginnings in 1895, this members’ club has brought together pioneers, inventors and entrepreneurs driven by the development potential the automobile can offer, both in terms of technological advances and the notions of freedom and fantasy that it represents. These gentlemen drivers have never formed a partnership with a major brand name, until now. Under the aegis of their management company (S.G.A.C.F.), they have accepted this challenge.Today, through this association with the ACF, Hublot is lending its support to the ICM project. This international research centre was set up to prevent, treat and compensate for the consequences of spinal cord injuries caused by sports and road accidents, and to find treatments for brain pathologies.
Hublot has created a limited edition men’s and women’s watch, a “drive” chronograph in the ACF colours. A black ceramic case and bezel surround the skeleton dial which reveals a section of the movement. A contribution from each watch sold will be donated to the fundamental and clinical research carried out by the ICM.
