Hublot unveiled today, “La Ferrari” which is a real champion and a world record holder in power reserve for a hand-wound vertical tourbillon wristwatch — 50-day power reserve, thanks to, 11 mainspring barrels. It is also the watch with the most components (637) created by Hublot. The watch is wound with a drill-tool that plugs into the top of the watch.
LaFerrari will be limited to only 50 pieces. It joins the “Key of Time” and the Antikythera SunMoon (Baselworld release) as part of Hublot’s Masterpiece collection.
The movement is featuring a front vertical face with the small seconds indicated by means of an aluminium cylinder that is attached onto the suspended Tourbillon cage. The hour and minute are displayed to the right of the barrels, also indicated by means of one anodised black aluminium cylinder each. On the left side of the dial we can find one of many cylinders, this specific tells the power reserve.
The MP-05 “LaFerrari” was developed – in parallel with the car, alongside the Ferrari teams.
Overall, this a technical MONSTER with a design that is very cool.
