These are the newest products of the partnership among the famous Swiss watchmaker and Ferrari which started two years ago. However, the special thing about these limited editions is that they are dedicated to both Italian car manufacturer and Mexico, the country where these novelties will be exclusively available. New Big Bang Ferrari Mexico is made either of 18 karat King Gold (available in the edition of 25 pieces) or titanium (limited to 50 pieces). Beside expected robustness and fusion of different materials, this watch is characteristic by its colorful dial and case-back that both recall the colors of the Mexican national flag.
Either made of 18 karat King Gold or titanium, the case of the Big Bang Ferrari Mexico Chronograph is very robust, with the diameter of 45.5 mm. It is highlighted by a cylindrical carbon fiber bezel, fixed with 6 H-shaped titanium screws. The satin-finished case also features bezel lugs and lateral inserts in black composite resin, as well as a crown and chrono pushers made either of King Gold or titanium and decorated with black rubber inserts. In the center of the sapphire crystal case-back that reveals a mechanism, there is the Ferrari prancing horse, surrounded with the colors of Mexican flag.
The in-house HUB 1241 Caliber fly-back chronograph UNICO movement is also visible through a sceletonized dial, covered with anti-reflective sapphire crystal. This self-winding mechanism provides a superb power-reserve of up to 72 hours and oscillates with 28’800 beats per seconds.
The attractive dial features the white Hublot logo transfer, the rhodium-plated Ferrari prancing horse application, as well as satin-finished rhodium-plated and green-coated markers. Satin-finished and black-plated hands with white luminescent tips show hours and minutes, while the interesting third central hand, marked in green, white and red colors of the Mexican flag, serves as the chronograph indicator. At the 3 o’clock position, there is a small seconds sub-dial with the black ring and red indices. It also includes a round date window.
A black rubber and Schedoni leather strap with red and green stitching is another tribute to Mexico, but also homage to the Ferrari prestigious signature. An innovative quick-change strap system is inspired by the safety seatbelt mechanism. New Hublot Big Beng Ferrari Mexico watch is water-resistant up to 100 meters (330 feet).
