In 2015, to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Big Bang, Mexico will receive its very own set of exclusive limited edition Big Bang Ferrari timepieces fashioned with aesthetical nuances that is unique and distinctive to our local shores.

In November 2011, Hublot and Ferrari announced their partnership, with Hublot becoming the exclusive watchmaker of Ferrari. A comprehensive agreement covering the full branding, marketing and communication spectrum, including “Official Watch” of Ferrari, “Official Timekeeper” of Ferrari, “Official Watch” of Scuderia Ferrari and “Official Timekeeper” of the Ferrari Challenge.

Today, we are extremely proud to unveil the second Big Bang Ferrari Mexico Limited Edition with a bezel made of green carbon fiber. This is truly a fitting symbol for what unites two such highly prestigious brands because we share the same values: raw passion, a love of perfection and technical precision right down to the smallest detail.”

Each timepiece will come with two interchangeablestraps – Schedoni leather or black carbon fiber sewn onto black rubber - with an innovative quick-change system inspired by the safety seatbelt mechanism.

The absence of superfluous accessories brings out the fusional and rational aspects of the Big Bang Ferrari Mexico’s unique design, a pure expression of the values that characterize the sports spirit of Ferrari and at the same time the inimitable Hublot style.

One of the strongest and most noticeable features of the timepiece is the bezel made of green carbon fiber – creating a link with Mexico’s national flag.
Clad in a shade of distinctive Green & Red,housed in a 18K King Gold or black ceramic case with a cylindricalgreen carbon fiber bezel, and black rubber and Schedoni leather strap with green stitching – it is a nod to not just the Mexican colours but also an homage to the Ferrari prestigious signature.The Big Bang Ferrari Mexico Limited Edition (45.5 mm in diameter) showcase the in-house flyback chronograph UNICO movement visible through the sapphire dial.
With just a rarity of 25 numbered timepieces available in 18K King Gold, and 50 numbered timepieces in Ceramic, the case back of the watch also features the discreet legendary Prancing Horse surrounded by the National Mexican colors.

The UNICO movement can be compared to the best possible engine to power a racing car, and it was selected, then designed and developed by Hublot to power the Big Bang Ferrari. With no fewer than 330 components, the column wheel and dual horizontal coupling appear on the dial. Frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour. The movement has 72 hours of power reserve, and is water resistant to 100 metres.An indexed crown (with Hublot’s ‘H’ logo automatically positioning itself to remain in line) features elongated push buttons, fixed along a rotating axis like the pedals in a car whilst carbon inserts give the case a distinctive look.

On the fabled Mexico circuit, Hublot pays tribute to Scuderia Ferrari's historic victories at the Mexican Grand Prix.

In 1990, Hublot was just 10 years old when Scuderia Ferrari had its last victory on the Mexico circuit, before it disappeared from the Formula 1™ world championship calendar altogether at the end of the 1992 season. In 2015, Hublot is celebrating the 10th anniversary of its iconic Big Bang model while racing returns to the Autódromo Hermanos Rodríguez, around the bends of the track redesigned by circuit architect Hermann Tilke. To celebrate the Grand Prix's hotly anticipated return to Mexico, Hublot has created a collection of 10 unique Big Bang Ferrari Tourbillon Mexico pieces.

Once again, Hublot's R&D department has produced its best to create a Ferrari collection which offers a perfect balance between the tradition of a skeleton tourbillon complication and the sleek, innovative design of the Big Bang case.

All ten watches sport an identical middle and mechanism: a Big Bang case, and a hand-wound skeleton tourbillon developed and manufactured entirely by Hublot. These pieces boasts a power reserve indicator on the dial showing the 115-hour reserve (5 days) of the HUB6016 movement. A feat of innovation sees each piece adorned with different materials, original composites and alloys, the signatures of Hublot's innovative approach – King Gold, carbon, or carbon ceramic encrusted with gold, titanium. Their aesthetic is based on the colours of Mexico with its dominant green. A Ferrari F1-90 is screen printed on the sapphire back of the case in tribute to the 1990 race.

On the eve of the Mexican Grand Prix, Hublot has invited clients and friends of the brand to come and exclusively discover this collection. And an opportunity to see how you measure up against Sebastian Vettel on another type of circuit/challenge: a watchmaker's bench. The German driver is facing a new challenge, to screw the 6 H-shaped screws into the Big Bang's bezel in just 01 minute 01 second (similar to the time to race one lap) - and hold the title.
Twenty five years ago, Scuderia Ferrari celebrated its 99th victory as a constructor. As the last two races of the 2015 championship approach, it has 224 Grand Prix victories to its name. These successes have ensured Scuderia Ferrari holds most of the circuit records.
Hublot and Scuderia Ferrari share the same vision in terms of their constant pursuit of performance, innovation and pioneering materials. On the circuit in Mexico, they are the natural race leaders.
