Hublot Techframe A Ferrari Design for a Hublot watch Celebrating Ferrari’s 70th Anniversary

Hublot Techframe Ferrari Titanium

The Hublot Techframe Ferrari 70 Years Anniversary Chronograph Tourbillon watch Collection from Hublot Watches of Nyon, Switzerland, offered in a choice of three luxury, limited editions of 70 pieces each with case material in King Gold, Titanium and ‘PEEK’ Carbon, respectively, offers everything that might be imagined from a joint project between Hublot and Ferrari, of Maranello, Italy. In a world of luxury watch novelties packed with gold, black carbon fiber and sapphire cased watches of astonishing quality, Hublot Watches of Switzerland, renowned for watch models such as their ‘Big Bang’, an incredible seller internationally, knew that any tie-up with the legendary Ferrari had to offer something special, whatever the price of the watch. The Hublot Techframe Ferrari 70 Years Anniversary Chronograph Tourbillon Watch Collection from Hublot Watches Switzerland, in any of the three luxury, limited editions of 70 pieces each with case material in King Gold, Titanium and ‘PEEK’ Carbon, respectively, certainly achieves that aim, with a series of luxury watches that are far from being novelties.

The key to understanding how Hublot Watches Switzerland have managed to rise above the world of gold, black carbon fiber and sapphire cased luxury watch novelties with the Hublot Techframe Ferrari 70 Years Anniversary Tourbillon Chronograph watch collection is the nature of their partnership with Ferrari. Essentially, it would be Ferrari of Maranello who would design the Hublot Techframe Ferrari 70 Years Anniversary Chronograph Tourbillon watch collection, in all three King Gold, Titanium and PEEK Carbon Fiber case versions, and it would be Hublot Watches of Switzerland who would build the watch. This was a radical step for a seller such as Hublot, and a marked changed from how the Nyon, Switzerland based watchmaking brand approached the Hublot Big Bang Unico, Hublot Spirit of Big Bang, Hublot Classic Fusion series, or indeed, anything attempted by Seiko, Richard Mille, Jaquet Droz or Linde Werdelin for example. The result is a watch, in the form of the  luxury Hublot Techframe Ferrari 70 Years Anniversary Tourbillon Chronograph, that is available at a suggested retail price from sellers in France (with France VAT included), Geneva, London and worldwide, that is highly competitive with VAT included novelties from other competitor brands, more so if the purchase is made from a free shipping specialist chronograph seller or re-seller.

Hublot, the Switzerland manufacture who made the Big Bang ‘big’, chose then, a different approach for the luxury limited edition Hublot Techframe Ferrari 70 Years Anniversary Tourbillon Chronograph watch collection, when compared to models such as the Hublot Big Bang, Hublot Big Bang Unico, Hublot Spirit of Big Bang, the Hublot Classic Fusion series, and anything offered by potential rivals such as  Seiko, Richard Mille, Jaquet Droz or Linde Werdelin for example. The design of the limited edition Hublot Techframe Ferrari 70 Years Anniversary Tourbillon Chronograph watch was entrusted completely to the Ferrari Design Centre, under Head of Design Flavio Manzoni, creating a watch that not only in the choice of materials, such as King Gold, Titanium and PEEK Carbon for the case, black PVD coated titanium and P485 Ferrari Red anodized details, but in its very essence, symbolized both the design processes at work at the Ferrari Design Centre Maranello and those qualities that set the renowned Italian brand apart. Starting with the Cal. HUB631 Hublot caliber (calibre to some), a fine example of haute horlogerie in itself with both Chronograph and Flying Tourbillon complications, Head of Design Flavio Manzoni and his team at the Ferrari Design Centre Maranello sought to build a ‘chassis’ to house this fine ‘engine’ of a movement. The result is that the luxury limited edition Hublot Techframe Ferrari 70 Years Anniversary Tourbillon Chronograph watch  features a perimeter, or cage design case for all three case materials of King Gold, Titanium and the ultra-high tech PEEK Carbon, giving the Tourbillon Chronograph an astonishingly F1 sports racing look that is certain to impress potential purchasers and have them looking for a specialist tourbillon chronograph seller such as Mercurius Trading Ltd. Housed within the skeleton frame case of the luxury limited edition Hublot Techframe Ferrari 70 Years Anniversary Tourbillon Chronograph watch, under the almost invisible anti-reflective coated Sapphire Crystal case front, in the center section of the three-part King Gold, Titanium or Peek Carbon case sandwich, is the main watch dial, in a deep dish form reminiscent of a car instrument layout, with the Ferrari logo, flying tourbillon set at 7 o’clock and the single chronograph pusher with oversize over-center latch type lever all competing for the eye’s attention. It is no surprise that the F1 team renowned for the speed of its F1 pitstops should have made the luxury limited edition Hublot Techframe Ferrari 70 Years Anniversary Tourbillon Chronograph watch’s black rubber strap itself quickly detachable by the use of Ferrari Red anodized pushbuttons set into the case lugs, with the case material theme extended to the strap by virtue of a folding clasp and PVD coated Titanium cover plate decorated in either King Gold, PEEK Carbon or Titanium and the Hublot Watches Switzerland brand logo.

The luxury limited edition Hublot Techframe Ferrari 70 Years Anniversary Tourbillon Chronograph watch, in any of the three case materials available, King Gold, PEEK Carbon and Titanium, is a remarkable example of the closest type of collaboration between Hublot Watches Switzerland and the renowned F1 and supercar manufacturer Ferrari of Maranello, Italy. Entrusting the design of the watch to the Ferrari Design Centre under the stewardship of Flavio Manzoni means that the Hublot Techframe Ferrari 70 Years Anniversary Tourbillon Chronograph is genuinely bristling with neat Ferrari design touches beyond the beauty and function of the very sporting looking skeleton case design.

Meant as a sports-tourbillon-chronograph that can be worn with both formal and casual attire (not least due to the tourbillon complication), particularly so for the Titanium case version, the Hublot Techframe Ferrari 70 Years Anniversary Tourbillon Chronograph has proved to be extremely sought-after. This is a Hublot watch which after all, offers something very different to both Hublot’s own creations, such as the Hublot Big Bang Unico, Spirit of Big Bang, Classic Fusion series, and anything attempted by Seiko, Richard Mille, Jaquet Droz or Linde Werdelin. Versions of the limited edition luxury Hublot Techframe Ferrari 70 Years Anniversary Tourbillon Chronograph do occasionally appear pre-owned, sometimes from a free shipping seller. Do not expect to see that much variation from the suggested retail price, and check for example, if dealing with a France based specialist tourbillon chronograph free shipping seller, whether the price includes France level VAT and if indeed, VAT is applicable or not.
