The partnership between Hublot and Ferrari is now about five years old, and now Italian marque and its partner Hublot celebrate Ferrari’s 70th anniversary, with a brand new watch – Techframe Ferrari 70 Years Tourbillon Chronograph.
Inspiration comes from a supercar’s lightweight chassis, with a case that forms skeletonised frame around the dial. The brand’s in-house tourbillon chronograph engine meanwhile, is on full show.
The black structure on the dial holds the chronograph counters and offers excellent legibility. The crown at 4 o’clock – raised by a black PVD Titanium insert decorated with the famous Prancing Horse – reduces the size of the watch to the greatest possible extent, and increases its aerodynamic look. Finally, the red push-button is strategically placed to facilitate its use – even when driving – and makes the design more ergonomic.
Under the bonnet of this thoroughbred is a Tourbillon Chronograph driven by a movement that was designed and developed by Hublot: the new HUB6311 calibre with manual winding – 253 components – offers 5 days of power reserve.
The Techframe Ferrari 70 Years is available in three versions – King Gold, PEEK (Polyether Ether Ketone) Carbon, and Titanium – each of which is produced in 70 limited editions. The back cover of the case is engraved in black with “Limited Edition, No. XX/70”, and the sapphire back is adorned with “Ferrari 70 Years”. It is destined to be a collector’s item.
