Viva Ferrari, viva Hublot…! Ferrari Hong Kong celebrates its 30th anniversary! Hublot Hong Kong celebrates its 30th anniversary!
Let me show a very happy Jean-Claude Biver, Chairman of Hublot, celebrating with him a very happy Luca de Montezemolo, Chairman of Ferrari and a new cool Hublot timepiece: the first-ever series made of bright red ceramic.
Jean-Claude Biver, Chairman of Hublot, stated in Honkong: “The collaboration between Hublot and Ferrari has reached a new level in these two years. It’s an extraordinary fusion of the fine watchmaking craftsmanship hold by Hublot and the exceptional Italian industrial achievement hold by Ferrari, and an eternal pursuit for transcendent quality and innovation. We all believe that Hublot and Ferrari will enjoy an unprecedented legendary cooperation in the future.”
Hublot stated: “This is a watch that embodies the full innovative capacity of the Hublot Manufacture. After developing the Hublot Magic Gold, the first scratch-resistant 18K Gold in history, Hublot has succeeded in creating a brightly coloured ceramic. Bright red is the color inaugurating this new process, in tribute to Ferrari. It exhibits the same qualities as black or white ceramic, and was the subject of months of research within the R&D Department and the Hublot foundry in Switzerland. This is the first time that the “magic formula” to achieve a brightly coloured ceramic has been found. It is subject of an international patent application.”
Jean-Claude Biver, Chairman of Hublot, stated: “The timepiece fuses design, materials and mechanics in way that uniquely addresses the respective DNA of Hublot and Ferrari: innovation, performance, technology and exclusivity.”
The Big Bang Ferrari Hong Kong Limited Edition (45.5 mm in diameter) houses a black ceramic case with a cylindrical bright red ceramic bezel that dramatically showcases the in-house “Flyback”-chronograph UNICO-caliber visible through the sapphire dial. Clad in a shade of distinctive red – bright red ceramic for the bezel, sapphire crystal glass housed in a black ceramic case, red hours, minute indexes on the dial and a black rubber and Schedoni leather strap with red stitching – it is a nod to not just our national color but also an homage to the Ferrari prestigious signature. With just a rarity of 30 numbered timepieces available, the case back of the watch also features the discreet legendary Prancing Horse.
