It starts with a handshake, an agreement, a gesture to create something new, where precision, design and elegance are the only measures of individual passion and mutual vision. Two companies, Hublot and Ferrari, alike in reputation, come together on a tour de force.
It is not uncommon for a watch and car company to team up—practically everyone has done it. But most have not kept the momentous tenacity that Ferrari and Hublot have, which is the reason why their partnership has led to a record breaking time-piece.
We stared in awe, stopping our own watches to mark the moment in time when the Masterpiece MP-05 LaFerrari attained the world record of any hand-wound tourbillion wrist watch because of its 50-day power reserve. This kind of engineering determination is a substance lapping time itself, and the team here at the duPont Registry anticipates many more laps to come.
