Hublot Celebrates The Launch Of The LaFerrari With Stunning Watch
Next to their impressive collaboration with Monster on new luxury headphones, Hublot has presented another highlight today at Baselworld – the Masterpiece MP-05 LaFerrari. Paying tribute to the new flagship Ferrari super car, the LaFerrari, the brand has developed a watch from the future.
Hublot’s MP-05 “LaFerrari” has been designed, developed and manufactured entirely by the Swiss firm and features a 50-day power reserve–a world record power reserve for a hand-wound tourbillon watch. It has a unique in-house crafted mechanical movement principle, that can keep it ticking as far as two months after you stopped wearing it.
It has a special microblasted black PVD-coated titanium case, which encases 637 individual components and thanks to the tour billion movement system, they are arranged to look like a Ferrari engine bay, hinting to the red cylinder banks with the admission manifold in the middle.
With carbon fiber on the case, there are some light design cues in the watch from the Ferrari car. The top crystal is one, and the entire case design is meant to mimic the shape of the beautiful car, though it is a light connection. The Ferrari relationship allows Hublot to experiment in new areas and work with the famous automaker to produce rather original timepieces such as this one.
The hour and minute are displayed to the right of the barrels, also indicated by means of one anodized black aluminum cylinder each. On their left is the cylinder indicating the power reserve. Reinforcing bars either side, made from anodized red aluminum, also bring to mind Ferrari’s signature exteriors.
Hublot will make only 50 of these stunning watches, so only one in ten LaFerrari buyers will be able to have one.
Price or the Hublot Masterpiece MP-05 LaFerrari watch will be about 300,000 Swiss Francs (or Rs 17234400.00). When are you getting yours?
