STIMA VALUE INDEX – Hublot MP-05 LaFerrari
Designed and developed entirely by swiss luxury watchmaker Hublot, the masterpiece MP-05 pays tribute to “LaFerrari’ – which was originally revealed at the 2013 geneva motor show- in a demonstration and testimony that lives up to the supercar’s performance. The ‘MP-05 Laferrari’ was created entirely in parallel with the hyper-car alongside the Ferrari engineering teams.
Refined aesthetic into a hand-wound Tourbillon timepiece. Yes. Equipped with a tourbillon, the hand-wound wristwatch can hold a record breaking power reserve of approximately 50 days thanks to its 11 barrels ( a world record for it’s category), arranged in a line just like a spinal column and interconnected so that they do not each discharge in turn but support each other. Additionally, the timepiece integrates 637 watchmaking components – featuring a complex shaped sapphire crystal reminiscent of the car’s outline.
The exterior here is composed of black PVD titanium, while a traditional face is scrapped for something more imposing: anodized black aluminum cylinders indicating the hours, minutes and amount of power reserve. Last, but definitely not least, the reference number of this unique movement happens to be 905.ND.0001.RX, the credit of which happens to go to the Hublot team, who worked with Ferrari to custom make it for them.
Hublot’s Masterpiece MP-05 LaFerrari Watch ($TBD) is being produced in a limited quantity: 50 pieces, to be exact (which means that only one out of ten Ferrari owners will actually get a chance to wear the watch). If an actual LaFerrari is just out of your price range, then perhaps this rare Hublot will suffice.
