To celebrate the 90th Anniversary of Scuderia Ferrari, Hublot is proud to present the Big Bang Scuderia Ferrari 90th Anniversary watch. A model that reflects the rich history and heritage of Scuderia Ferrari realized in three limited editions conceived in collaboration with the Ferrari Design Centre. These pieces illustrate the development of the materials used in car racingover the years. This is a permanent quest of both companies, as illustrated by Hublot’s motto “The Art of Fusion”.
The 45-mm-diameter of each of the three editions houses the famous UNICO movement, a flyback chronograph that offers a 72-hour power reserve. Their bezel is cut in ceramic carbon, the same material that is used for Formula 1 brake discs.
The first version is inspired by the early years of Scuderia Ferrari and its glorious past. The visible metal parts, the peccary leather from the bucket seats and the brushed look of the dashboard are represented here by the platinum case and the stitched perforated strap. Its dial evokes old-fashioned speedometers with its calendar underlined in yellow. In this way, it falls in-line with the purest traditions of car racing. (Price €.40.400)
The 3D carbon that is used to make the case of the second edition reflects the present day Scuderia Ferrari. Today, research into new composite materials and high-technology are all powerful in competition driving. Its strap is made from Nomex—the fire-resistant synthetic fibre used to make racingdriver’s suits—on which the red and black stitching makes a striking contrast. Its colour code is black and red, the colours currently used by Scuderia Ferrari for its single-seater Formula 1 cars. (Price €.34.200)
The third model is instantly recognisable by its transparent case made from sapphire, an innovative materi-al that is hard to work, giving it a resolutely futuristic style. It demonstrates the extreme sophistication that technology is heading towards and the possibilities it offers for the future. A promise of innovations that will apply to both car manufacture and watchmaking. Its strap adopts a highly futuristic Kevlar look. (Price €.68.000)
Each of the three versions of the Hublot Big Bang Scuderia Ferrari 90th Anniversary watch bears one of the three colours of the Scuderia on its border, the numbers and the index. Yellow for the platinum edition, red for the 3D carbon edition and black for the sapphire edition. All three will be produced in alimited edition of 90, and 10 ‘collector’ sets with all three watches will also be available.
