It’s not just that Ferraris go fast, they also have incredible designs that capture the imagination. So while a watch inspired by Ferrari may not go fast (in fact, you want it to go consistently instead), that inspiration can still help create a stunning watch that will catch every eye.
That’s exactly what happened when Hublot teamed with Ferrari to create watches.
The newest collaboration resulted in the Classic Fusion Ferrari GT. Inspired by the Gran Turismo Ferraris, the watch uses the new UNICO manufacture movement. The movement is housed in a 45mm case that is only 6.75mm thick. The movement is a self-winding, flyback chronograph that operates on 4 Hz frequency and a column wheel, which peeks out on the dial side.
Just like the cars, however, it’s not just what’s under the hood that matters. The Classic Fusion Ferrari GT has a striking design. It comes in three different varieties: Titanium, which is limited to only 1,000 pieces; King Gold, limited to 500 pieces; and 3D Carbon, which will also be limited to 500 pieces.
Hublot is breaking new ground with their 3D Carbon watch. The polymer matrix composition (PMC) used in the 3D Carbon is new to fine watchmaking, though in the fine car industry it has long been a mainstay. This is yet another example of how the partnership is creating new and exciting innovations.
