Hublot adds two models to the Big Bang Ferrari line-up, the result of a partnership between the Swiss watchmaker and the Italian maker of supercars, including the Big Bang Ferrari Grey Ceramic, a tribute to the Ferrari NART.
Soon to be unveiled at Baselworld 2015, the Hublot Big Bang Ferrari Black Ceramic is styled in black and red, the classic colours of Ferrari. And the second model is the Big Bang Ferrari Grey Ceramic, modelled on the colours of Ferrari NART (short for “North America Racing Team”), the American-backed team active in the sixties and seventies that competed in endurance races, winning at Le Mans and Daytona. Both the new Big Bang Ferrari models are in 45 mm in diameter, with cases in ceramic with black composite inserts. A black mesh inspired by Ferrari grilles, the dials have a Ferrari prancing horse inset at nine o’clock. And the minute register at three o’clock integrates the date window with a skeletonised date numeral against a bright yellow backing.
Schedoni leather-covered rubber straps – the Italian firm is the maker of Ferrari leather goods – are standard, and are easily interchangeable by pressing the button on the lug. To complete the automotive aesthetic, the straps are painted with a racing stripe. And Inside is the HUB 1241 Unico movement, Hublot’s modular, in-house chronograph calibre with a flyback function, fitted with a rotor inspired by a hubcap. Each model is limited to 250 pieces, with pricing to be revealed at Basel next month.
