The partnership between Hublot and Ferrari is now about five years old, and both are celebrating Ferrari’s 70th Anniversary together using a brand-new watch designed from the Italian carmaker with a brand new Hublot movement as well. For Baselworld 2017, the Hublot Techframe Ferrari Tourbillon Chronograph watch honoring this 70th anniversary will come in three variations: King Gold, Titanium, and PEEK Carbon, each of which is going to be a limited edition run of – you guessed it 70 pieces.Hublot and Ferrari have done way more than many car and watch manufacturer collaborations, so it is no surprise that instead of slapping some decoration onto an current slice, we see a completely brand new watch entirely. The architectural and bridged design of the watch is far from being over-the-top and overdesigned, and it can be a relief. It is competitive where it has to be without overcompensating, is lightweight and hard (at least once you consider the Titanium and carbon versions), and is also a testament to Hublot’s triumph of being a severe manufacture in both design and movements.The brand new HUB6311 manual-wind movement inside the Hublot Techframe Ferrari Tourbillon Chronograph is manufactured from 253 components and has a 5-day power reserve. It is an old-school thing of fascination once it comes to timepieces, but I adore and enjoy the discretion attracted by a single pusher. I’m not saying the watch is close to discreet, but the pusher is one of the few splashes of color we see here, aptly completed in P485 Ferrari red. The other red pushers you see by the lugs are for a simple strap changing system, which is almost always a welcome feature.Looking just like a Star Wars helmet to get a cyborg, the Hublot MP-09 Tourbillon Bi-Axis watch isn’t for the faint of heart contemplating design as well as cost. But even as a bystander looking from afar, I almost would not have it any other way in regards to Hublot and their eccentric designs. They have shown they’re capable of thriving amid controversy whilst providing the kind of watches capable of stopping us directly in our paths as we telephone through our #dailywatch Instagram feeds. The Hublot MP-09 Tourbillon Bi-Axis is priced at $169,000 in titanium, $211,000 at King Gold, and $190,000 for the titanium pavé version.
First introduced last year, the Hublot Watches Yahoo Answers Replica Big Bang in clear sapphire returns with a new and improved case construction that’s been simplified and streamlined.
While the Big Bang Unico Magic Sapphire retains the recognisable design of the Big Bang – it remains the same size at 45mm in diameter – the case eliminates the titanium parts of the earlier model, as well as the multi-part construction of the bezel and case back.
This increases the transparency of the watch case, while making it easier to put together and more robust. That being said, the Big Bang Unico Magic Sapphire is water-resistant to 50m, instead of the 100m offered by its predecessor.
The movement inside remains the HUB 1242, an automatic calibre with a modular chronograph that has a flyback function.
Price and availability
The Big Bang Unico Magic Sapphire (ref. 411.JX.1170.RX) is limited to 500 watches, priced at US$57,900 or €57,100.
