November 13th, 2014, Taiwan – On the occasion of the Ferrari Rally in Taïwan and to celebrate HUBLOT’s confidence for the future of Taiwan region and as a payback to Taiwan clients, HUBLOT launches its first limited edition watch exclusively for Taiwan – the Big Bang Ferrari Taiwan. Mr. Loic Biver, General Manager of Greater China of HUBLOT and Mr. Vincent Liu, General Manager of Ferrari Taiwan, Ferrari will witness the grand global début of the watch in tribute to Ferrari and Taiwan.

Each and every detail of Big Bang Ferrari Taiwan, from design to craftsmanship, boasts the best possible DNA of the two brands combined – innovation, performance and technological excellence. The 45.5mm-diameter watch features black carbon fiber case and black ceramic bezel, making the flyback Unico movement even more prominent under the crystal sapphire. Ferrari’s Horse at 9 o’clock is exquisitely carved on the cutout dial. Red hands of the 60-second timer perfectly echo with Ferrari instrument panels. Moreover, the crown rotation, inspired by the flange, is more efficient than ever. The timer crew at 2 o’clock is as smooth as a Ferrari accelerator. Highly innovative strap changing system that allows quick switch between two straps has actually took seat belts as its Muse. In addition to all the classic Big Bang Ferrari designs, this watch seamlessly blends in the representative Taiwan Blue and the world-known Ferrari Red, subtly but exquisitely depicting them here and there – blue inner bezel, blue minute and second hands, red and blue indications and timer second hand, and Schedoni leathered straps with black natural rubber lining and red and blue stitching. There are only 30 timepieces available and each one of them has the Ferrari’s Horse printed on the watch back.

UNICO movement, comparable to a top race car engine, is carefully selected, designed and developed by HUBLOT to be housed in Big Bang Ferrari Taiwan watches. This watch has more than 330 components. Column-wheel and double level bearings are visible from the dial, with a vibration frequency of 28,800 per hour. The power reserve is up to 72 hours and water resistance reaches 100 meters. Big Bang Ferrari Taiwan eliminated all unnecessary decorations and flawlessly interpreted HUBLOT’s “Art of Fusion” by combining HUBLOT’s world changing innovation and Ferrari’s passion for extreme sport.

In November 2011, HUBLOT was officially announced as Ferrari’s global strategic partner. It is far more than sponsorship or authorization. The partnership is an all-round alliance between Ferrari and HUBLOT on brand image and business campaign. HUBLOT has, since, been the official supplier of watches and time for Ferrari and F1 and partner for any Ferrari special events all around the globe. In the past three years, both have achieved extraordinary success on every level of the partnership – more than 800 events have been organized; a number of crossover limited edition watches have been launched and sold out; brand image and awareness soared; and countless R&D achievements.

Loic Biver, General Manager of Greater China of HUBLOT, said, “On the grounds of three-year successful partnership, HUBLOT and Ferrari has stepped up onto a brand new level. This is a highly inspirational collision of luxury automobile from Italy and exquisite watchmaking from Switzerland. I am very much honored to launch the Big Bang Ferrari Taiwan on this occasion. We hope the watch will deepen the relationship among HUBLOT, Ferrari and Taiwan and we look forward to launching more watches exclusively for Taiwan to pay back the great support from Taiwan consumers.”
