To celebrate the 90th birthday of the most successful race team of all time, Hublot, which has been a long-standing partner of Scuderia Ferrari, is proud to present the Big Bang Scuderia Ferrari 90th Anniversary watch. This is 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 racing over the years. This is a permanent quest of both companies, as illustrated by Hublot’s motto “The Art of Fusion”. No future and no victories without innovation. It is only through technical and technological research that the two houses have been able to maintain their respective positions in their respective worlds.
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.
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 a limited edition of 90, and 10 ‘collector’ sets with all three watches will also be available.
Classic Fusion Ferrari GT
Since the very start of their collaboration in 2011, Hublot and Ferrari have always created watches with a unique design and motorisation. Each new edition introduces a new style. This year, Hublot presents an elegant and contemporary piece that draws inspiration from the “Gran Turismo” universe. The new Classic Fusion Ferrari GT collection is designed in full collaboration with the Scuderia. The launch of the Classic Fusion Ferrari GT watch – with its extremely innovative design which integrates the new UNICO manufacture movement in a body with distinctive and dynamic lines – sees Hublot and Ferrari write a new chapter in their collaboration.
The Classic Fusion Ferrari GT is a watch for lovers of fine mechanical pieces who want to display a contemporary and refined style. The dial is transparent thanks to the use of sapphire crystal and reveals the high-precision mechanics of the UNICO HUB1280 calibre, with the famous Prancing Horse appearing at 12 o’clock. Each and every detail has been subjected to meticulous finishing touches like the red thread around the sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating, a stylistic reference to the legendary Ferrari colour. The straps of the Classic Fusion Ferrari GT have been subtly created in black rubber and dressed in Schedoni leather, like the seats of the Maranello historical race cars. Round like a racing tachometer, the new Classic Fusion Ferrari GT is a piece for our time, with particular attention paid to the ergonomics and a thickness of only 13.15 mm, a rarity for an integrated flyback chronograph. This innovatively designed, airy watch of rare elegance opens a major new chapter in the partnership of excellence between Hublot and Ferrari.
