The best Hublot x Ferrari watch to buy: The MP-05 “LaFerrari” was developed – in technical and design terms – entirely in parallel with the car, alongside the Ferrari teams. They share a number of common points. Able to boast no fewer than 637 components for the movement, which is also equipped with a Tourbillon, as well as a power reserve of approximately 50 days thanks to its 11 barrels, arranged in a line just like a spinal column and interconnected so that they do not each discharge in turn but support each other, this watch is closer to being a concept watch.

BIG BANG INTEGRAL TOURBILLON HIGH JEWELERY
The Big Bang Integral Tourbillon High Jewelery brings together in one piece everything that defines the identity and distinction of the brand: its automatic tourbillon calibre, which was fully designed and manufactured in-house as a Hublot skeleton movement; its spectacular architecture set with 484 baguette-cut diamonds, totaling 31 carats; its fully integrated aesthetics from the case to the strap; and its 100% visible mechanics on the dial side thanks to the sapphire.

MP-09 TOURBILLON BI-AXIS
The Hublot MP-09 Tourbillon Bi-Axis watch beats to the rhythm of the fine watchmaking calibre HUB9009.H1.RA, a mechanical movement with manual-winding featuring a 5-day power reserve. It also features a bi-axial tourbillon that undertakes a complete rotation per minute for the first axis and a rotation every 30 seconds for the second. This means that the dynamic movement—immediately perceptible—of this double tourbillon frame has an appearance that is as fascinating as it is fun.

BIG BANG UNICO FULL BAGUETTE KING GOLD RAINBOW
Like a summer sky after a storm, the Big Bang Unico Full Baguette King Gold Rainbow is embodied in a rainbow of brightly coloured gemstones on a backdrop of 18ct pink gold. When scarlet blends into fuchsia to become ultraviolet, a tiny bit Klein blue, turquoise, then sky, the green is shaded in chlorophyll to become soft, seize upon a vibrant yellow and blossoms in a warm orange. In an invisible closed setting, 290 precious and fine gemstones draw an audacious, vibrant and joyful spectrum around the dial where the House’s iconic movement is revealed.
Retail Price: $348,000
SPIRIT OF BIG BANG SAPPHIRE
Following the example of the All Black concept, which became an unmissable trend, the transparency took the Hublot collections by storm. After the MP-05 “LaFerrari” Sapphire, the Big Bang Unico Sapphire, it’s now the turn of the emblematic barrel-shaped case of the Spirit of Big Bang to become transparent. When the decoration of your watch becomes invisible, the secrets of its architecture and its movement are revealed directly to your gaze.

BIG BANG TOURBILLON SAMUEL ROSS
Combining an ancient, organic material (granite) with a modern, manmade one (steel), Samuel Ross created his own ‘Fusion’, uniting past and present in a production process that involved both traditional hand-finishing and cutting-edge machining. The deceptively simple, industrial form of the 40cm high artwork has now been reinterpreted in the 44mm Big Bang Tourbillon Samuel Ross – Ross’s first wristwatch collaboration with Hublot. Ross’s signature use of colour and love of stark geometry and urban design, come together with the innovation and precision that prevail in the work of both Ross and Hublot.

CLASSIC FUSION TAKASHI MURAKAMI SAPPHIRE RAINBOW
Hublot and Takashi Murakami unveil the second timepiece of their collaboration: the Classic Fusion Takashi Murakami Sapphire Rainbow. This new watch takes the smiling flower, the iconic theme of the Japanese artist’s work, and transforms it into a whirlwind of transparency and color. 12 colorful petals rotate around this face, and their polychromatic effect is achieved by setting 487 stones representing the colors of the rainbow: rubies, pink sapphires, amethysts, blue sapphires, tsavorites, yellow and orange sapphires.
Retail Price: $106,000
HUBLOT BIG BANG MP-11
The absolute transparency of the new Big Bang MP-11, limited to 200 pieces, is juxtaposed with its chromatic backside, shaped from transparent sapphire crystal. The leader in large scale machining of sapphire, the hardest and most resistant material after diamond, Hublot is taking the crystalline case to new heights by endowing it with curves that follow the contour of the movement’s cylinders.
Retail Price: $116,000
BIG BANG SANG BLEU II
Even more disruptive, the Big Bang Sang Bleu II channels the creative inspiration of Maxime Plescia-Büchi into its three-dimensional angles and edges. The motif spans the case, cutting into its hexagonal bezel, and carving into the sapphire crystal, juxtaposed against the hands with their geometric lines, and moulded onto the interchangeable bracelet. The dial plays with transparency, allowing glimpses of the Unico movement. It is feat of construction, almost architectural in scope, in a 45-mm Hublot yellow gold case.
Retail Price: $47,300
HUBLOT BIG BANG FERRARI 1000 GP
The special edition Big Bang represents the present and future of Scuderia Ferrari. With a diameter of 45 mm, its case is created from carbon ceramic. This material is both incredibly hard and extremely durable, and there is a reason for this: it is exactly the same as that used for the car brake discs. This cutting-edge technology was developed by Hublot jointly with Scuderia Ferrari. This second version is fitted with a woven strap made from SuperFabric® as well as a second leather strap made from embossed black Schedoni leather with black top stitching on a black rubber base.
