HUBLOT - Big Bang Ferrari Carbon King Gold & Big Bang Ferrari Carbon Titanium

The Big Bang Ferrari Carbon is the embodiment of exclusivity and sporting prowess, offering a fusion of high-quality and high-tech materials. It took the R&D department six months to structure the layers of materials which form the bi-material bezel and to obtain a regular incrustation of the metal in the carbon. The result is a carbon bezel incrusted with gold, or titanium, which reinforces the high-tech spirit of the Big Bang model. The properties of the composite's materials complement each other in a fusion which marries beauty and innovation.
The case – made from titanium or an exclusive King Gold alloy – features a special finish: a brilliant, micro-blasted coating for extra hardness and a silky metallic-effect appearance. The case middle incorporates elongated push-buttons, fixed to a rotating staff like the controls on a car.
The dial features an appliqué of the iconic prancing horse at 9 o'clock, while the minute counter and date window appear at 3 o'clock in the colours of the Ferrari shield.
The Big Bang Ferrari Carbon is fitted with a Unico manufacture movement, available for the first time in an All Black version. Its black PVD-coated main plate, bridges and oscillating weight are visible through the dial and sapphire back.

Each timepiece is paired with a "One click" leather strap, sewn onto grey rubber, featuring the signature stitching on Ferrari’s upholstery. The titanium version with a black strap is available as a 1000-piece limited edition; the King Gold version with a brown strap is available as a 500-piece limited edition.
