In order to pay tribute to Great Britain, the renowned Swiss watchmaker launched yet another version of its Big Bang Ferrari line, showing a very interesting combination of colors and materials. Robust, light and powerful, new UK Limited Edition presents an attractive sporty design whose highlight is an openworked mechanism, exhibited on both sides of the case. The latest Hublot’s novelty is limited to 50 pieces and it will only be available at Hublot retailers and in Hublot boutiques in Great Britain.
New Hublot’s Limited Edition watch preserves the design code of the Big Bang Collection, as well as some characteristic features of its Ferrari watch line. At the first place, I mean on the discreet Prancing Horse image, presented at a sapphire crystal case back, as well as another appliqué of this Ferrari’s signature image, visible on the sapphire crystal glass on the dial side. Besides, there is a combination of Ferrari’s signature colors which mark a transparent dial. Red is also a national color of Great Britain, so it is not a surprise that the Swiss watchmaker used it as the dominant color on the watch. It is used for applied Arabic numerals and hour markers, for hour, minute, small seconds and chrono hands, as well as for the anodized aluminum inner bezel.
A robust, 45.5 mm case is made of titanium. It features a signature Big Bang multileveled construction, composed of a black ceramic bezel with beautiful satin-finishing. Black composite resin lateral inserts and a circular, micro-blasted polished titanium case-back. On both sides of the case, sapphire crystal reveals a high-end in-house mechanism, UNICO fly-back chronograph movement. This self-winding mechanism beats at the frequency of 28’800 vibrations per hour and provides a power-reserve of up to 72 hours.
An open-worked dial features a white Hublot logo transfer on sapphire glass, as well as rhodium plated Ferrari prancing horse appliqué. Satin finished and rhodium plated applied numerals and hands are highly legible, as well as the yellow date window at the 3 o’clock position. At the same position, there is a small-seconds sub-dial.
The Big Bang Ferrari UK Limited Edition features a unique white leather strap with a red stitching reminiscent of the British national flag. Of course, leather is attached to the brand’s signature rubber strap that provides superb comfort. This attractive chronograph watch provides water-resistance up to 100 meters (330 feet).
