Back on November 2011, the Swiss luxury watchmaker Hublot became the watchmaking partner of the Italian automotive brand Ferrari which is currently shining-high at Geneva Motor Show with the launch of its special-edition Ferrari LaFerrari. The collaboration was described to be a perfect match of two high-tech and avant-garde brands that define the future in their respective fields. Now Hublot, which pioneered the combination of gold and rubber, igniting a revolution in horology and impressively symbolized the Art of Fusion in watchmaking with its unique aesthetics, is now celebrating the 25th anniversary of its partner Ferrari in U.A.E with the unveiling of an exclusive Ferrari-stamped Hublot Big Bang Ferrari U.A.E. Limited Edition. And the fact that only 25 pieces of the U.A.E Limited Edition luxury timekeeper sporting color accents to reflect the national flag will be produced, in reference to the 25th Anniversary of Ferrari in the Middle East, certainly makes it an ultimate collector’s item.
On this occasion, Giulio Zauner, who represents Ferrari in Dubai, and Marco Tedeschi, who represents Hublot in the U.A.E., unveiled this exceptional example of horological craftsmanship in the company of Ferrari and Hublot owners and a number of fans at the Al Tayer Ferrari Showroom in Dubai.
With 72-hour power reserve and water resistance to 100m, the Big Bang Ferrari U.A.E. Limited Edition is truly a fitting symbol for what unites two such highly prestigious brands. And this exclusive collaboration, rich in the host of synergies, is certainly a major milestone for Hublot on the road into the future.
The dial of this limited-edition watch boasts a Prancing Horse at 9 o’clock, and the style of the hands and indices comes inspired by the counters in the cockpit of a Ferrari. While the column wheel and dual horizontal coupling on the dial side appear in a new constellation reminiscent of Ferrari alloy wheel rims.
Further, the UNICO chronograph movement can be compared to the ultimate racing car engine, designed and developed by Hublot to power the Big Bang Ferrari.
The Swiss luxury watch brand Hublot has also earlier impressed the horological world with its exclusive creations like Atelier Courtsey watch, $5 million Big Bang, the Costa Smeralda watches, the World Boxing Council watches, and the Tutti Fruitti colorful tourbillion watch.
