The special edition F1 King Power Great Britain
Hublot is the Official Watchmaker of Formula 1™
The new F1™ King Power Great Britain is available in a limited edition of 250 numbered pieces only.
The F1™ King Power Great Britain is a unique timepiece for several reasons. Manufactured using a range of high-tech materials already developed for the Formula 1 competitions, using components like the carbon fiber for the ceramic bezel with a circular-grained satin finish and adorned with multiple holes evoking a high performance brake disc.
The push-buttons for starting and resetting are also in carbon fiber, giving an aspect that many watch aficionados will certainly love!
The case is made of 18K King Gold.
King Gold is the name of the 18 carat gold alloy used by Hublot.
Its exclusive color is even redder than the traditional 5N red gold.
In order to have this "special" gold aspect and color, the metallurgists hired by Hublot increase the percentage of copper and add platinum so they can stabilize the color for years and avoid the phenomenon of oxidation.
The exact composition of this alloy is classified, obviously
The Hublot F1 King Power Great Britain will be available from August 2012 only.
Price: 53,000 Euros
