This week luxury watchmaker Hublot expands its partnership with Ferrari with the unveiling of a new limited edition watch. The Big Bang Ferrari Beverly Hills timepiece pays tribute to the Swiss manufacture’s distinguished Maranello-based automobile partner, as well as Hublot’s only California boutique.
The Big Bang Ferrari Beverly Hills begins with a 45.5mm-diameter black ceramic case with a satin-finished black ceramic bezel and a blue inner bezel. The watch’s indexed crown is bracketed by elongated push buttons, fixed along a rotating axis like the pedals in a car. The Ferrari logo is engraved and lacquered red on the lower push button, complementing the red seconds hand and chronograph indices.
The sapphire dial features the Hublot logo in white as well as a rhodium-plated Ferrari prancing horse applique at 9 o’clock. The hands are blue Super Luminova with a black coating matching the indexes, complimented by Ferrari-red chronograph and seconds hands. There is also a Ferrari-red minute counter in a sub-dial at 3 o’clock with a ‘Modena’ yellow date window.
At the heart of the Big Bang Ferrari Beverly Hills is a UNICO automatic flyback chronograph movement which boasts no fewer than 330 components. The movement, which was manufactured in-house by Hublot, features a column wheel and dual horizontal coupling on the dial side in a constellation reminiscent of Ferrari alloy wheel rims. The timepiece has a 72-hour power reserve.
A blue schedoni leather strap on black rubber with Ferrari-red stitching completes the look.
This limited edition, which is limited to fifty numbered pieces, is available now at the Hublot boutique in Beverly Hills. Photo courtesy Hublot.
