On the occasion of Ferrari’s 70th anniversary, Hublot has created a special limited edition of its Techframe Tourbillon Chronograph. The Hublot Techframe Ferrari 70 Years Tourbillon Chronograph unites cutting automotive design with a complex watch movement in a watch that truly brings together the best of both worlds.
The story of the watch begins with its movement: the structure: the HUB6311 caliber hand-wound manufacture movement, containing a total of 253 components and with a 5-day power reserve. A tourbillon with exclusive operation, and a chronograph feature complete the watch. The Ferrari in-house team, Centro Stile, led by Flavio Manzoni designed the watch around this “engine” following the same creative processes as those used for sports car chassis, to achieve minimal weight combined with a solid frame.
The watch is distinguishable by its skeleton case middle – the “chassis” – which is made from uni-directional carbon, PEEK (polyether), a multi-layer hypoallergenic material, while the case or “engine cover” is made from King Gold, a gold/ceramic alloy developed by Hublot. The dial features both the Hublot and Ferrari logos, and is inspired by Ferrari’s instrument panels. The open design provides a view of the movement.
The watch is up for auction today! If you can’t make it to the auction, organized by RM Sotheby’s, place a bid online using this link https://www.rmsothebys.com/ff17/ferrari–leggenda-e-passione
