Hublot has unveiled an exclusive Ferrari-Stamped Hublot watch, a collector’s piece especially dedicated to Ferrari fans.
In 1980, Hublot pioneered the combination of gold and rubber, igniting a revolution in horology. Since then, Hublot has come to symbolize the Art of Fusion in watchmaking with its unique aesthetics. In November 2011, Hublot and Ferrari announced their partnership, with Hublot becoming the exclusive watchmaker of Ferrari.
This was not a simple question of creating a tie-in product, for licensing or sponsorship. It is a comprehensive agreement covering the full branding, marketing and communications spectrum, including “Official Watch” of Ferrari,“Official Timekeeper” of Ferrari, “Official Watch” of Scuderia Ferrari and “Official Timekeeper” of the Ferrari Challenge.
Mexico will now receive its very own set of exclusive limited edition Big Bang Ferrari timepieces. A true tribute to Mexico, the timepiece fuses design, materials and mechanics in way that uniquely addresses the respective DNA of Hublot and Ferrari: innovation, performance, technology and exclusivity. This very exclusive limited edition will only be available at Hublot retailers in Mexico.
Clad in a shade of distinctive Green & Red housed in a 18K King Gold or Titanium casewith a cylindrical carbon fiber bezel, and black rubber and Schedoni leather strap with Red & Green stitching – it is a nod to not just our national colour but also an homage to the Ferrari prestigious signature. With just a rarity of 25 numbered timepieces available in 18K King Gold, and 50 numbered timepieces in Titanium, the case back of the watch also features the discreet legendary Prancing Horse surrounded by the National Mexican colours.
The Big Bang Ferrari Mexico Limited Editions (45.5 mm in diameter) showcases the inhouse flyback chronograph UNICO movement (can be reset at any time) visible through the sapphire dial.
The UNICO movement can be compared to the best possible engine to power a racing car, and that it was selected, then designed and developed by Hublot to power the Big Bang Ferrari. With no fewer than 330 components, the column wheel and dual horizontal coupling appear on the dial. Frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour.
An indexed crown (with Hublot’s ‘H’ logo automatically positioning itself to remain in line) features elongated push buttons, fixed along a rotating axis like the pedals in a car whilst carbon inserts give the case distinctive look.
Each timepiece will come with two interchangeable straps with an innovative quick-change system inspired by the safety seatbelt mechanism. 72 hours of power reserve, water resistant to 100 metres. The absence of superfluous accessories brings out the fusional and rational aspects of the Big Bang Ferrari Mexico’s unique design, a pure expression of the values that characterize the sports spirit of Ferrari and at the same time the inimitable Hublot style.
