Exceptional sports watches in honour of exceptional racing cars.
In 2015, to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Big Bang, Hublot is unveiling two new 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.
Constructed on a 45 mm diameter chassis in black or grey ceramic, the sporty design of the new Big Bang Ferrari models is enhanced by a profiled aerodynamic dial which allows a view on the UNICO movement, dominated by the unique and distinctive Ferrari grille.
Every single detail in these two models recall the world of Ferrari: the appliqué of the iconic prancing horse at 9 o’clock on the dial, the colours of the Ferrari shield appear on the minute counter and on the date window. These aesthetics are recalled by the predominant colours on the strap, and the oscillating weight beneath the transparent sapphire case-back recall the codes of the five-spoke Ferrari wheels.
The push-buttons, in titanium and rubber, are elongated and fixed to a rotating staff which reminds the pedals of a car. The leather strap features a red or grey livery with “striping” reminiscent of that found on racing cars. Finally,It is equipped with the innovative “One click” attachment system inspired by car seat belts, making it easily interchangeable. Both models have a 72-hour power reserve.
A connection stronger then ever to the automotive world, the new Big Bang Ferrari is an edition limited to 250 pieces for each of the two versions – black or grey ceramic. CC
