In the year that the Formula 1 World Championship celebrates its seventieth anniversary, beginning of September, the Scuderia Ferrari took part in their 1000th Grand Prix at the Mugello circuit in Italy. The occasion for Hublot to celebrate Scuderia Ferrari as the only team to have taken part in every World Championship Formula 1 race since it was established in 1950.
The collaboration between Hublot and Scuderia Ferrari dates back to 2011 – a strong collabo-ration both on a personal and technical level has led to the creation of a series of models that embody the constant quest for innovation. A true Art of Fusion that continues today with the release of the Hublot Big Bang Ferrari 1000 GP. Available in two versions, the watch pays tribute to both the glorious history of Scuderia Ferrari and its role at the leading edge of advances in technology. These are released in two limited editions of 20 pieces.
The first of the two limited editions honours the legend of the prancing horse and represents the brand’s heritage. Made from polished white gold, its 45mm case bears the engraving “Limited Edition x/20” on the back. It is delivered with two straps that are easily interchangeable thanks to Hublot’s ingenious and exclusive patented One Click system. The second edition represents the present and the future of Scuderia Ferrari. With a diameter of 45mm, its case is created from carbon ceramic. This material is both incredibly hard and extremely durable, as that used for the car brake discs. This cutting-edge technology was developed by Hublot jointly with Scuderia Ferrari. This second version is fitted with a woven strap made from SuperFabric® as well as a second leather strap made from embossed black Schedoni leather with black top stitching on a black rubber base.
Both are equipped with an Hublot Unico Manufacture movement integrating a flyback chronograph with column wheel and a power reserve of 72 hours. The mechanism can be admired through the crystal on the back of the case, which bears the logo “1000 GP”.
