Swiss luxury watch brand Hublot celebrates once again Mexico with an exclusive Ferrari-dedicated Big Bang watch, making it an immediate collector’s item. After the success of the first Big Bang Ferrari Mexico created in 2013, Hublot unveils the 2015 version with green carbon on the bezel, a nod to Mexico’s national flag.
the limited edition BIG BANG FERRARI MEXICO fuses design, materials and mechanics in way that uniquely addresses the respective DNA of Hublot and Ferrari: innovation, performance, technology and exclusivity. The launch of this exclusive piece coincides with the Grand Prix‘s return to Mexico.
Exceptional sports watches in honour of exceptional racing cars. In 2015, to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Big Bang, Mexico will receive its very own set of exclusive limited edition Big Bang Ferrari timepieces fashioned with aesthetical nuances that is unique and distinctive to our local shores.
In November 2011, Hublot and Ferrari announced their partnership, with Hublot becoming the exclusive watchmaker of Ferrari. A comprehensive agreement covering the full branding, marketing and communication spectrum, including Official Watch of Ferrari, Official Timekeeper of Ferrari, Official Watch of Scuderia Ferrari and Official Timekeeper of the Ferrari Challenge.
One of the strongest and most noticeable features of the timepiece is the bezel made of green carbon fiber – creating a link with Mexico‘s national flag. Clad in a shade of distinctive Green & Red, housed in a 18K King Gold or black ceramic case with a cylindrical green carbon fiber bezel, and black rubber and Schedoni leather strap with green stitching – it is a nod to not just the Mexican colours but also an homage to the Ferrari prestigious signature. The Big Bang Ferrari Mexico Limited Edition (45.5 mm in diameter) showcase the in-house flyback chronograph UNICO movement visible through the sapphire dial.
With just a rarity of 25 numbered timepieces available in 18K King Gold, and 50 numbered timepieces in Ceramic, the case back of the watch also features the discreet legendary Prancing Horse surrounded by the National Mexican colors.
The UNICO movement that powers this watch was designed and developed by Hublot. With no fewer than 330 components, the column wheel and dual horizontal coupling appear on the dial. Frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour. The movement has 72 hours of power reserve, and is water resistant to 100 metres. 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 a distinctive look.
Each timepiece will come with two interchangeable straps – Schedoni leather or black carbon fiber sewn onto black rubber – with an innovative quick-change system inspired by the safety seatbelt mechanism. 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.
