2019 marks a special milestone in the world of racing. It is the 90th year since the foundation of Scuderia Ferrari and long time partner, Hublot is marking the occasion with the BIG BANG SCUDERIA FERRARI 90th ANNIVERSARY watch. Available in three exclusive versions and produced in limited editions, the three models naturally reflect the rich history and heritage of Scuderia Ferrari, and have been designed in collaboration with the Ferrari Design Centre.
What sets these editions apart? 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.
The second reflects the present. Today, research into new composite materials and high-technology are all powerful in competition driving. Its case is made from 3D carbon. The 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.
The third model is futuristic and uses sapphire. It demonstrates the extreme sophistication that technology is heading towards and the possibilities it offers for the future.
Here’s what is common in all the three editions- the 45mm case of each of the three editions houses the famous UNICO movement, a flyback chronograph that offers 72-hours of power reserve. Their bezel is cut in ceramic carbon, the same material that is used for Formula 1 brake discs. Each of the three versions of the Hublot Big Bang Scuderia Ferrari 90th Anniversary watch bears one of the three colours of the Scuderia on its border, the numbers and the index. Yellow for the platinum edition, red for the 3D carbon edition and black for the sapphire edition. All three will be produced in a limited edition of 90, and 10 ‘collector’ sets with all three watches will also be available.
No better way to mark a milestone than with a new watch….but better still to mark it with a veritable trio!
