Hublot celebrates the 90th anniversary of Scuderia Ferrari

To celebrate the 90th birthday of the most successful race team of all time, Hublot, which has been a long-standing partner of Scuderia Ferrari, is proud to present the Big Bang Scuderia Ferrari 90th Anniversary watch. This is a model that reflects the rich history and heritage of Scuderia Ferrari realized in three limited editions conceived in collaboration with the Ferrari Design Centre. These pieces illustrate the development of the materials used in car racing over the years. This is a permanent quest of both companies, as illustrated by Hublot’s motto “The Art of Fusion”. No future and no victories without innovation. It is only through technical and technological research that the two houses have been able to maintain their respective positions in their respective worlds.

The 45-mm-diameter of each of the three editions houses the famous UNICO movement, a flyback chronograph that offers a 72-hour power reserve. Their bezel is cut in ceramic carbon, the same material that is used for Formula 1 brake discs.

Scuderia Ferrari

The first version is inspired by the early years of Scuderia Ferrari and its glorious past. The visible metal parts, the peccary leather from the bucket seats and the brushed look of the dashboard are represented here by the platinum case and the stitched perforated strap. Its dial evokes old-fashioned speedometers with its calendar underlined in yellow. In this way, it falls in-line with the purest traditions of car racing.

3D Carbon

The 3D carbon that is used to make the case of the second edition reflects the present day Scuderia Ferrari. Today, research into new composite materials and high-technology are all powerful in competition driving. Its strap is made from Nomex—the fire-resistant synthetic fibre used to make racing driver’s suits—on which the red and black stitching makes a striking contrast. Its colour code is black and red, the colours currently used by Scuderia Ferrari for its single-seater Formula 1 cars.

Futuristischen Look

Das dritte Modell stricht besonders durch das transparente Gehäuse aus Saphirglas hervor, einem innovativen Material, welches nur sehr schwer zu bearbeiten ist. Aber genau dieses besondere Material verleiht der Uhr ihren futuristischen Look. Es symbolisiert die stetig voranschreitende extreme, technische Raffinesse und die Möglichkeiten, die die Zukunft birgt. Ein Versprechen für weitere Innovationen, welche sowohl in der Automobilherstellung als auch in der Uhrmacherei stattfinden werden. Das Armband zeigt sich ebenfalls futuristisch aus Kevlar.

The third model is instantly recognisable by its transparent case made from sapphire, an innovative materi-al that is hard to work, giving it a resolutely futuristic style. It demonstrates the extreme sophistication that technology is heading towards and the possibilities it offers for the future. A promise of innovations that will apply to both car manufacture and watchmaking. Its strap adopts a highly futuristic Kevlar look.
