Navy blue, red and white, as seen on the flag of Texas, now can be seen on the brand new Big Bang Ferrari, dedicated to the second largest US state. This special edition of just 50 pieces was prepared to mark the opening of the 10th Hublot boutique on the North American continent, which is as impressive as this striking skeletonzied timepiece that bears all key design elements of the brand’s Big Bang Ferrari watch line. Besides distinctive colors, the watch is unique by its case-back with the Ferrari’s iconic prancing horse, surrounded with the tri-colored flag.
The case comes in the standard Big Bang’s size of 45.5 mm diameter. It is made of titanium with a beautiful satin finishing and incorporates a bold round bezel, crafted in black ceramic which serves as the spectacular frame for a stunning open-worked dial. This sapphire crystal interface reveals inner-parts, including a column wheel and a double horizontal clutch, while discretely showing the figure of Ferrari’s signature prancing horse, placed at the 9 o’clock position. Furthermore, the minute counter with red markers and a yellow date window (the combination of Ferrari’s favorite colors) is at the 3 o’clock position. The dial also features a minute scale, running over the outer rim, as well as hour markers and numerals which are inspired by the counters in Ferrari. The same inspiration is used for the design of central hands.
Hublot Big Bang Ferrari Texas watch is powered by UNICO Flyback chronograph movement completely developed and made in-house, particularly for this prestigious line. Built of 330 parts, this self-winding mechanism beats on the frequency of 28’800 vibrations per hour and ensures 72 hours of power-reserve. Its oscillating mass, visible through the sapphire crystal case-back recalls the design of a Ferrari wheel.
This masculine timepiece is available with a navy blue, Schedoni leather strap, attached to black rubber and decorated with tone on tone stitching, water- resistant to 100 meters. Each watch from the limited series will be presented in an aluminum presentation box, inspired by a valve support from an engine.
Hublot’s novelty is officially presented during the opening of the brand’s 10th boutique in the USA, located in Houston, Texas. The ribbon had been cut by Scuderia Ferrari’s driver, Felipe Massa, who participated in the Circuit of the Americas F1 Grand Prix, the following day.
The boutique which looks great at photographs is actually the first one in the USA to present the brand’s new interior concept, based on the fusion of unusual materials, such as silver brushed oak, wool, silky fabric, black wood and chrome steel.
