The three-year collaboration between Ferrari and Hublot has yielded some great watches, including the Big Bang Titanium and Magic Gold, along with the famous MP-05 LaFerrari, the only watch in the world with a 50-day power reserve. And to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Big Bang, Hublot is unveiling two new models: The Big Bang Ferrari Black Ceramic and Big Bang Ferrari Grey Ceramic.
The Big Bang Ferrari Black Ceramic is adorned with details in Ferrari’s legendary red color, while the Big Bang Ferrari Grey Ceramic is inspired by the historic NART (North America Racing Team) livery.
Built 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 through which the depths of the movement can be glimpsed. The UNICO manufacture movement is dominated by the unique and distinctive Ferrari grille a blackened criss-cross mesh which clearly reveals the main plates and bridges of the movement.
The dial features an appliqué of the iconic prancing horse at the 9 o’clock position, while the minute counter and date window appear at 3 o’clock in the colors of the Ferrari shield. The predominant color on the strap also reflects the aesthetic of the dial, with indices and hands featuring a rhodium-plated finish for the grey ceramic and red varnish for the black ceramic. Recalling the distinctive codes of five-spoke Ferrari wheels, the oscillating weight is visible beneath the transparent sapphire case-back.
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 those found on race cars. The strap is equipped with an innovative “One click” attachment system inspired by car seat belts, making it easily interchangeable.
With a 72-hour power reserve, each model is limited to 250 pieces, with pricing to be revealed next month at Basel. Needless to say, if you want one, you’d better act fast!
