Hublot Create Timepiece to Mark 2012 British Grand Prix

By Paul Joseph

Swiss watchmakers Hublot have created a limited edition timepiece to celebrate the 2012 Formula One British Grand Prix., which took place last weekend at Silverstone.

Limited to 250 numbered pieces, the F1 King Power Great Britain was made using a range of high-tech materials inspired by Formula One.

The watch’s carbon fibre and ceramic bezel is adorned with multiple holes evoking a high performance brake disc, as well as the push-buttons for starting and resetting, and a 30-minute to 3-hour counter.

Other notable features include an 18-karat gold case made from Hublot’s own exclusive King Gold alloy, a strap made from black alligator horn back stitched onto black rubber with red stitching, and a power reserve of approximately 42 hours.

The F1 King Power Great Britain from Hublot is available priced at €32,700.
