The official unveiling of the watch that makes you wish you could rev time. Last November was the announcement of the collaboration between famous sports car manufacturer Ferrari and acclaimed watchmaker Hublot. This is truly a great paring.

Hublot introduces a new material on this watch they developed called “Magic Gold,” which is a scratch resistant alloy of gold and ceramic used for the case. The case at 45.5 mm in diameter is also slightly larger than the previous Big Bang models and is the first alteration of the Big Bang case since it was introduced in 2005. Take look at their previous Big Bang model to compare at our Hublot Big Bang Black & Steel page.

There are endless amounts of inspiration from Ferrari including a new rotor added to resemble one of the wheels of a Ferrari wheel. Other notable Ferrari theme includes the minute counter that appear as a tachometer and carbon fiber inserts on the side of the case. Not only the Ferrari logo is marked on the profile of the watch but Ferrari’s famous Cavallino can be found at 9 o’clock to give it the humble presence of the brand’s legacy.

The watch also comes with two interchangeable straps that are made to be quickly replaced inspired by a car’s seat belt function. They have even added influences from the interior upholstery of a Ferrari to the stitching found on the watch straps. The Ferrari Big Bang is also available in a Titanium as well. This is a remarkable collaboration that highlights the brilliance and precision of both brands as well as their capabilities of marvelous execution in their trade.
