The Big Bang Ferrari Carbon collection is the embodiment of exclusivity and sporting prowess, offering a fusion of high-quality and high-tech materials—carbon and metal. This is the first time a watch has featured this composite, and it’s done in innovative style. It took the R&D department of Hublot six months to structure the layers of materials which form the bi-material bezel and to obtain a regular incrustation of the metal in the carbon. The result is a carbon bezel incrusted with gold, or titanium, which reinforces the high-tech spirit of the Big Bang.
The case—made of titanium or an exclusive King Gold alloy— features a special finish: a brilliant, micro-blasted coating for extra hardness and a silky metallic-effect appearance. The case middle incorporates elongated push-buttons, fixed to a rotating staff like the controls on a car. The dial features an appliqué of Ferrari’s iconic prancing horse at 9 o’clock, while the minute counter and date window appear at 3 o’clock in the colours of the Ferrari shield.
The Big Bang Ferrari Carbon boasts of a Unico manufacture movement, available for the first time in an all black version. Its black PVD-coated main plate, bridges and oscillating weight are visible through the dial and sapphire back.
Each timepiece is paired with a ‘one click’ leather strap, sewn onto grey rubber, featuring the signature stitching on Ferrari’s upholstery. The titanium version with a black strap is available as a 1,000-piece limited edition; the King Gold version with a brown strap is available as a 500-piece limited edition.
In sum, the Big Bang Ferrari Carbon is big on just about everything: a 45 mm diameter case in 18K king gold or titanium; a bezel in carbon and gold (king gold) or carbon and titanium; water resistance up to approximately 100 metres; a HUB 1241 Unico movement, developed and manufactured in-house by Hublot; and a power reserve of about 72 hours.
