We live in an extraordinary time. The MP-05 “LaFerrari” represents an unparalleled masterpiece of Hublot: completely designed, developed and produced exclusively by watchmakers and engineers at the Hublot factory to pay tribute to Ferrari’s special limited series sports car “LaFerrari”.
The MP-05 ‘LaFerrari’ has an unprecedented 50-day power reserve history, perfectly matching the extraordinary features of this latest Ferrari sports car. At the same time, the 637 parts used by the watch are also produced by Hublot.
From a technical and design perspective, the Hublot MP-05 “LaFerrari” watch has the same outstanding quality as the Ferrari sports car of the same name. 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.
MP-05 ‘LaFerrari’ has extremely delicate design: sapphire transparent mirror with complex lines and black PVD-coated titanium bottom case back are reminiscent of the streamlined shape of the Ferrari ‘LaFerrari’ sports car. The center of the top of the case is made of titanium with carbon fiber inserts, which highlights the position of the winding crown.
