With Baselworld 2015 only a month away, Hublot brings us another pre fair release with two new Big Bang Models developed with Ferrari.
The first is the aptly named Big Bang Ferrari Black Ceramic, which is adorned with details in Ferrari’s legendary red colour; the second is the Big Bang Ferrari Grey Ceramic, inspired by the historic NART (North America Racing Team) livery.
Both versions have a 45mm case, with distinctive features that take inspiration from the cars from Maranello. The dial itself mimics the distinctive front grilles of a Ferrari. A honeycomb type pattern has been used for these two watches. This allows for the wearer to view the bridges and main plate of the UNICO movement.
In the 9 o’clock position sits the famous Prancing Horse in silver. The minute counter for the chronograph is located at the 3 o’clock position. The date window is yellow and is the same colour as the Ferrari shield. The date sits in a circular window located in the minute counter.
The case middle incorporates elongated push-buttons in titanium and rubber, fixed to a rotating staff like the pedals of a car. The leather strap features a red or grey livery with “striping” reminiscent of that found on racing cars. It is equipped with the innovative “One click” attachment system inspired by car seat belts, making it easily interchangeable.
Both models will be limited to 250 pieces each.
