A meeting of great minds occurred March 28 at Baselworld in Switzerland, when Hublot CEO Ricardo Guadalupe and Ferrari Senior Vice President of Design Flavio Manzoni spoke together during the Ferrari Press Meeting at the Hublot Booth, as described in an email from the company.
Along with Raphael Nussbaumer, Products Director at Hublot, and Mathias Buttet, Head of R&D at Hublot, Guadalupe and Manzoni spoke to a crowded room full of reporters on the common points and values between the two companies. Particularly, the spoke about the connections between LaFerarri and the MP-05 LaFerrari Watch, and the inspiration behind the watch’s creation.
Hublot has been the Official Watch of Ferrari since 2012, and the partnership has seen tremendous success. The MP-05 is the latest creation to come from the collaboration, and was designed, manufactured and engineered as a tribute to Ferrari’s LaFerrari. It has made history with a record-breaking 50 day reserve, and with 637 pieces, it is “the watch with the most watchmaking components created to date by Hublot,” as their website describes.
