Hublot has announced that it will mark the Scuderia Ferrari 1000th Grand Prix by launching the Hublot Big Bang Ferrari 1000 GP on 13 September.
The model is available in two versions, with both released in a limited edition of 20 pieces.
According to the brand, the first of the two limited editions “honours the legend of the prancing horse and represents the brand’s heritage”.
The timepieces are made from polished white gold, and feature a 45 mm case bears the engraving “Limited Edition x/20” on the back.
It is delivered with two straps that are interchangeable through Hublot’s exclusive patented One Click system.
The first is created using Pecari leather, used in the leather gloves previously worn by drivers, with white top stitching, and lined with black rubber for greater sturdiness and comfort.
The second is made from embossed black Schedoni leather with black top stitching, on the same rubber base.
The second edition represents the present and the future of Scuderia Ferrari and has a diameter of 45 mm, with a case created from carbon ceramic.
This second version is fitted with a woven strap made from SuperFabric as well as a second leather strap made from embossed black Schedoni leather with black top stitching on a black rubber base.
Both are equipped with an Hublot Unico Manufacture movement, integrating a flyback chronograph with column wheel and a power reserve of 72 hours. The mechanism can be seen through the crystal on the back of the case, which bears the logo ‘1000 GP’.
Ricardo Guadalupe, CEO of Hublot, said: “Since 2011, Hublot has worked closely with Scuderia Ferrari, the greatest team in the history of motor sport.
“And it is with this in mind that we pay tribute to this incredible celebration of 1000 races at the Formula 1 Grand Prix, in the same year that our brand celebrates its 40th anniversary.”
Mattia Binotto, Scuderia Ferrari team principal, said: “Scuderia Ferrari is celebrating its 1000th Grand Prix at the Mugello circuit.
“To reach this milestone at an Italian race track will make the event even more special, and we are delighted to share our celebrations with our partners and friends from Hublot, with the presentation of the Big Bang Ferrari 1000 GP.”
