Hublot F1 King PowerBy Jeffrey Hyatt
Hublot, recently named as the official watchmaker of Formula 1, has unveiled the quite eye-catching F1 King Power, the luxury Swiss watch brand’s first official Formula One watch. The F1 King Power features a 48mm-diameter satin-finished Zirconium case, a special Zirconium and ceramic bezel which resembles a Formula One car brake assembly. The multi-layered dial is treated in black nickel with black SuperLuminova; the hands are micro-blasted and rhodium plated.
The distinctive chronograph pushers have taken a design lead from the array of buttons and functions on a modern day Formula One steering wheel. The unique strap consists of super-comfortable rubber on the inside and a special Nomex outer layer, the latter material being used extensively in the racing suits of Formula One drivers. Hublot will produce a limited edition production run of the stylish timepiece. [via perpetuelle]
