Swiss luxury watch maker HUBLOT has unveiled the first UK exclusive limited edition Big Bang Ferrari. A true tribute to Great Britain, 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 selected luxury watch Hublot retailers and Hublot boutiques in Great Britain.
Clad in a shade of distinctive red– red hours, red minute indexes on the dial in a titanium case with a black ceramic and anodized red aluminium lower bezel, and a white-on-black rubber and Schedoni leather strap with red 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 50 numbered timepieces available, the case back of the watch also features the discreet legendary Prancing Horse.
The Big Bang Ferrari UK Limited Edition (45.5 mm in diameter) houses a titanium & black ceramic case with a cylindrical bezel that dramatically showcases the in-house 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. 72 hours of power reserve.
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, in black or white Schedoni leather stitched onto black rubber, with an innovative quick-change system inspired by the safety seatbelt mechanism. The red stitching is a nod to the signature upholstery craftsmanship typical of Ferrari.
The absence of superfluous accessories brings out the fusional and rational aspects of the Big Bang Ferrari UK’s unique design, a pure expression of Hublot value of The Art of Fusion with innovative spirit from Ferrari.
