Unveiled in 2013, the MP-05 "LaFerrari", created as a tribute to the eponymous supercar, showcased its unique and ultra-complex architecture. The lines of the MP-05 LaFerrari are the result of close collaboration between the designers and watchmakers working on the Hublot movement and Ferrari’s design director, Flavio Manzoni. The high tech movement of the timepiece was fully designed, developed and produced by the Hublot Manufacture engineers and watchmakers. Its tourbillon boasts an impressive 50-day power reserve –thanks to its 11 series-coupled barrels set in a spine formation down the centre of the watch. Its movement broke the record for the highest number of components for a Hublot movement to date – 637 in all. Boasting a futuristic design, the construction showed off the bold shape of its movement.
This year, Hublot unveils MP-05 "LaFerrari" Sapphire, a horology art piece carved out of sapphire. The three-dimensional construction of the case middle, in sapphire, provides an exceptional setting for the movement.
