The Basel Clock & Watch Fair 2013 has just come to an end. Hundreds of new products are pouring into the field of vision of major media like countless mountains and rivers. Numerous watch friends lament that this is simply a heartfelt feast. Of course, the watch team is particularly well-reported to the front of Basel. The reporting team is also very powerful. The information that was sent back the first time made many domestic watch fans who are looking forward to it almost feel the entire process of the watch exhibition. Today, I bring you the Hublot MP-05 ‘LaFerrari’ ultra-long-moving 50-day watch that debuted in Basel.
Hublot has introduced the MP-05 “LaFerrari” at Baselworld. It has a 50-day long-term power reserve, setting a world record for manual winding tourbillon watches. Its movement is 100% independently designed, developed and manufactured by Hublot factory watchmakers and engineers to pay tribute to Ferrari’s special limited series sports car ‘LaFerrari’.
Maybe the first time you see this watch, you will ask a question ‘Is this a watch?’ Of course, such questions stem from its streamlined shape design. This design concept is also full of Ferrari’s essence and excellent quality. .
The watch has a complex line of sapphire transparent mirror and a black PVD-coated titanium back case, which is reminiscent of the streamlined shape of the Ferrari “LaFerrari” sports car. Once again, the two areas reached a perfect cooperation through the spiritual fit.
The center of the top of the case is made of titanium with carbon fiber inserts, which highlights the position of the winding crown. The time-setting crown is located under the case, subtly integrated with the design, and has the mysterious sense of ‘invisible sight’.
The movement of the movement creates a unique display effect. The first is the small seconds display on the vertical surface of the front end. They are indicated by aluminum pillars fixed on the hanging tourbillon frame (the diameter of the tourbillon frame is 14.55 mm, which is larger than the usual size, making the mechanical part better viewing) .
The hours and minutes are displayed on the right side of the barrel, which are also indicated by a black anodized aluminum column. In fact, this is the first time I have seen such a design. It can be said that Hublot has once again become the world’s first person! !!
The barrel on the left side of the barrel is used to display the power reserve. The red strips on both sides of the column are made of red anodized aluminum, inspired by Ferrari’s red logo.
The collaboration between the watchmaker and the Ferrari team brings the watch and the car in common. The movement is equipped with no less than 637 parts and is equipped with a tourbillon movement. The 11 barrels inside are arranged in a row like a spine and connected to each other, which will not affect each other and support each other in turn, so the power reserve can reach 50 Over time, these characteristics are enough to make this watch proud, and it is an excellent concept watch.
With Hubble’s powerful movement configuration, the design of the transparent bottom shows the exquisite watchmaking technology. I want to say that compared with the transparent bottom of this watch, the other transparent bottoms are really weak!
There is also a small detail that makes the reading time easier: on each column, the numbers are covered with a white SuperLuminova ™ luminous coating to enhance the display effect and easy to read. Finally, the entire body is wrapped in a black natural rubber strap with a black PVD titanium folding clasp. This is the editor’s hands-on picture. Does it have a cool feeling?
Summary: The Hublot watch pursues excellence, and its extraordinary professional attitude is even reflected in the design of the watch box: The MP-05 ‘LaFerrari’ watch box is made of carbon fiber and Ferrari’s exclusive Schedoni leather, inspired by the automotive world. The box can also wind the watch automatically. This watch is limited to 50 pieces. Although most of the people who like this watch miss it, I believe that this will not prevent everyone’s passion for it.
