As Japan gears up for the 2011 Formula 1 Japanese Grand Prix, Round 15 of the FIA Formula One World Championship, the official timekeepers Hublot took time off to launch the F1 King Power Suzuka watch. Tagged as a tribute to the Japanese circuit, the limited edition watch sports white and red hues from the Japanese flag.
The watch sports a ceramic bezel with a “circular-grained satin finish adorned with multiple holes to represent a high performance brake disk”, and has been finished with a rubber and a synthetic fiber (Nomex) strap, similar to the F1 driver suits.
With 250 watched up for grabs, the watches will be auctioned to support charity. The sale proceeds will benefit Kids Earth Fund(KEF).
