Hublot have, as well as their many other commercial interests, the added swagger of being the “Official Watchmaker of Formula 1″. Naturally some track-inspired pieces should be expected and the latest to be released is the Hublot F1 King Power Great Britain, named in honour of the British Grand Prix.
To ignore the Santander-sponsored British Grand Prix simply would not do. To the relief of many, Silverstone still host the event – an iconic track with long and fast flowing laps, a driver’s favourite and a place where many of the teams can relax as its logistic-friendly location is within an hour or two’s drive from team HQ’s and more importantly from friends and family.
This celebratory watch combines the now-expected, but none-the-less highly technical combination of materials – carbon fibre and ceramic bezel and King Gold (a Hublot exclusive, with an enriched hue obtained in the lab to look great on the wrist). The case measures 48mm across and features distinctive brake disc styling with the synonymous H-shaped visible screws. The dial is matt grey and black with gold plated indices and the covetable F1 logo at 12 o’clock. Inside is the HUB 4100 automatic movement with 43 hours of power reserve.
The Hublot F1 King Power Great Britain will be limited to 250 pieces, and comes presented on an alligator leather/black rubber strap with some rather racy red stitching.
