Hublot has created a limited edition watch as a tribute to the LaFerrari.
The Swiss watchmaker says the Hublot MP-05 LaFerrari was developed alongside teams at Ferrari in parallel with the 708kW hybrid hypercar in terms of its technical and design features.
Hublot claims the MP-05 LaFerrari’s 50-day power reserve is a record for a hand-wound tourbillon wristwatch, while the special edition also comprises 637 components, more than any other in the company’s history.
The MP-05 LaFerrari features 11 barrels arranged in a line like a spinal column, all interconnected so that they do not each discharge in turn but support each other.
The hour and minute are displayed to the right of the barrels, while the power reserve is presented to the left. Readability is maximised through the use of white SuperLuminova. Both are displayed on anodised black aluminium cylinders, which are reinforced either side by Ferrari red aluminium bars.
Constructed from black PVD titanium, the Hublot MP-05 LaFerrari draws inspiration from the road car’s striking styling, with a complex-shaped sapphire crystal, an open case-back, and a titanium and carbon insert in its centre. A rubber strap with a folding PVD titanium buckle completes the exclusive timepiece.
Just 50 MP-05 LaFerrari watches will be produced, with each one to be presented in a leather and carbonfibre case containing specific automotive-inspired tools for winding the watch.
Hublot has not announced pricing of the MP-05 LaFerrari, although if the circa-$2.5 million price tag attached to the car itself sounds like a stretch, we expect you’ll also have trouble justifying the spend on the tribute piece.
