A Scuderia Ferrari Formula 1 car will race on snow for the first time Livigno, together with Hublot
The partnership between Hublot and Ferrari: a pairing of excellence, expressing the constant pursuit of high performance, innovation and state-of-the-art materials. A collaboration full of synergies, which links two brands that share the same will to overcome challenges.
Today, against this background, in the beautiful setting of Livigno, the exceptional Scuderia Ferrari On Ice event was held: under the enthusiastic and passionate gaze of all the spectators, a Formula 1 car from the Italian team, driven by Giancarlo Fisichella, descended the slopes of the Lombardy ski resort, to reach the track on the snow set up specifically for the event in the town’s main square and on through the streets of the town centre.
Extraordinary sports watches for spectacular races.
As Official Timekeeper of the event, Hublot has been alongside Scuderia Ferrari for more than 4 years. This prestigious collaboration that the record-breaking Swiss company has honoured with exclusively designed timepieces developed in partnership with the Maranello carmaker.
Big Bang Ferrari Carbon
Bimaterial avant-garde in a limited edition. Featuring a carbon-fibre bezel with gold insert in the King Gold version or titanium insert in the Titanium version, the Big Bang Ferrari Carbon showcases varied aesthetics, enhanced by a sophisticated and innovative fusion of materials. 6 months of R&D were required to design the layers of component materials and obtain a standard insert of the metal in the carbon fibre. The Big Bang Ferrari Carbon has a Unico movement (330 components, power reserve of 72 hours) and is a mix of exclusivity and sportiness. Two limited editions: 500 units of the King Gold Carbon and 1,000 units of the Titanium Carbon.
Big Bang ‘Speciale’ Grey Ceramic
A timepiece that proudly states its identity in the automotive world, inspired by the historic colours of the NART (North American Racing Team). The Unico movement is dominated by the unmistakable Ferrari grille, a mesh of burnished lozenges that transparently shows the platens of the movement bridges. Standing at 9 o’clock on either side of the dial is the famous prancing horse, and at 3 o’clock the minute counter and the date in the colours of the Ferrari emblem. The 45 mm grey ceramic case is in pendant with the bezel colors and strap, on which stand the famous coloured stripes that are central features of the 458 Speciale.
A limited edition of 250 units, with a power reserve of 72 hours.
MP-05 LaFerrari Sapphire
The latest creation, a new page in the history books of the brand. A model created in honour of its supercar namesake, that leaves you breathless with the extraordinary architecture of its movement… and that Hublot reveals today in all its complexity, playing with the visible and the invisible. The case, cut directly from a block of sapphire – the hardest material after diamond – with three-dimensional production, creates the impression of a movement literally suspended in the air, allowing you to admire all the details of a record-breaking movement in 360°. The HUB9005.H1.PN.1 movement reveals its hypnotic character with its 637 components and the vertical suspended tourbillon. The sapphire caseband consists of 7 elements created from 7 sapphire blocks and requires more than 600 hours of work. In summary, the fruit of 18 months of development is a case weighing 53.5 grammes on the wrist. An exceptional design, complemented by a transparent silicone strap, the closure of which presents the components cut from sapphire. In line with its ultra-futuristic look, this timepiece is wound by a mechanism activated by an automatic screwdriver like that used for Formula 1® tyres.
A model produced in just 20 units, for collectors.
