Conceived with the same approach used for designing a car at the Ferrari Design Centre and integrating Hublot’s watchmaking expertise, the Techframe Ferrari 70 years Tourbillon Chronograph opens a new chapter in the partnership that unites Hublot and Ferrari.
Designed by Ferrari, crafted by Hublot – this is the principle that prevailed for the design and perfecting of the new Techframe Ferrari 70 Years Tourbillon Chronograph. A team effort that began with Ferrari in Maranello and ended in Nyon with Hublot. This new line in Hublot’s collections is intended to offer a watch that is deeply rooted in Ferrari’s DNA– combining strength, performance and agility –while being produced and perfected by the Hublot manufacture. A perfect fusion of the automotive and watchmaking worlds.
Created and designed by Ferrari, under the leadership of design head Flavio Manzoni, the new Techframe Ferrari 70 Years Tourbillon Chronograph is like one of the supercars produced in Maranello. And with good reason – this watch was designed by Ferrari using the same creative processes as that used to develop a new super sports car.
The starting point for the designers was the Hublot movement – the “engine” of the watch – around which they freely designed a high-performance chassis. Like that of a Ferrari, its lattice structure, which is unique in the world of watchmaking, offers maximum strength for minimal weight.
The Hublot manufacture took this design by Ferrari and applied its expertise in engineering, materials and watchmaking, to make these aesthetic and technical concepts feasible. The result is a chassis case with a modular construction of three components – skeleton middle, container, and back cover –that is true to the styling imaged by Ferrari.
Available in King Gold and Titanium versions, the new Hublot-Ferrari chronograph is also offered in PEEK (Polyether Ether Ketone) Carbon, a multi-layer hypo-allergenic material made from particularly long carbon fibres and which is extremely durable and reliable.
An essential for this very open case: two lateral push-buttons make it easy to change the strap, whilst offering maximum security. As with all of the coloured components of this new Techframe, the two lateral push-buttons are made in the famous P485 Ferrari red.
The back cover of the case is engraved in black with “Limited Edition, No. XX/70”, and the sapphire back is adorned with “Ferrari 70 Years”.
