Ferrari is celebrating its partnership with luxury Swiss watchermaker Hublot with, surprise, a limited-edition timepiece.
There will only be 20 of the Big Bang Chrono Tourbillon Ferrari timepieces available, which also marks the 20th anniversary of the automaker’s presence in China. The watch features a single push-piece chrono movement with a flying toubillon, a 44mm dial and a sporty case made from carbon fiber.
“Ferrari is indeed one of the leading luxury brands on the Chinese market, and Hublot is very proud to become the exclusive strategic partner of Ferrari. The win-win agreement is a symbolic of a new beginning for our two brands, and will undoubtedly be a partnership filled with thrill and passion,” said Ricardo Guadalupe, managing director of Hublot.
The Big Bang Chrono Tourbillon Ferrari also comes equipped with HUB 6300 movement with clutch tourbillon escapement, while its strap is made of hornback crocodile leather and adorned with PVD Titanium buckles. No word on the price yet, but with only 20 piece being made, we’re sure it’s going to be pricey.

Never one to miss an opportunity to make a dollar, Formula 1 magnate Bernie Ecclestone decided to pose with his bruised and battered face – the result of being mugged weeks ago – for Hublot watches, the official horological sponsor of Formula 1.
It seems that Bernie was wearing a Hublot at the time, and his new campaign will feature the tagline “See what people will do for a Hubolt”. We find it tasteless but strangely alluring…much like the watch featured in the Hublot ad campaign.
