Flash News: Hublot Big Bang Ferrari Russia

By Thierry Ané on June 2, 2014

This year marks the tenth anniversary of Ferrari’s presence in Russia. The Hublot team may be busy with football right now, they could not let go of such a nice occasion to present a limited edition Ferrari timepiece for the Russian market. During a three-day celebration event that took place in Moscow’s Barvikha Luxury Village, Hublot introduced a 25-piece limited edition especially designed for this country.

Like all Big Bang Ferrari models, the Big Bang Ferrari Russia is powered by the in-house HUB 1241 Unico movement. Watch aficionados will immediately recognise this reliable self-winding movement by the presence of the chronograph’s column wheel on the dial side. With 72 hours of power reserve and a water resistance to a depth of 100 meters, this watch is ready for action.

Like the model created for Germany, this beautiful watch is crafted in black ceramic and features a carbon fibre bezel. The rubber moulding beneath the bezel is red this time instead of white and so is the inner flange with the minutes track. The main difference though, is that, like the Ferrari King Gold, the hour markers and the Prancing Horse appliqués are in King Gold. So are the hours and minutes hands. The chronograph central seconds hand remains red for optimal legibility.

The colour of the King Gold works admirably with the red and black of this model. It brings a nice touch of elegance to this sports watch and sets it apart in the Ferrari family. On the official picture, it is presented with black Schedoni leather and contrasting red stitches but thanks to the quick-change system inspired by the seat belt mechanism, one can easily switch to the other strap provided with the watch.

The Big Bang Ferrari Russia is another stunning addition to a collection filled with amazing timepieces. After Hong Kong, Mexico, Japan, Germany, Singapore, the UAE, and the UK, Hublot now pays a magnificent tribute to Russia. Which country is next?
