F1 Racing x HUBLOT  Formula 1 King Power Great Britain Chronograph Watch

England briefly took the “Epic Center of Sports” on Sunday when it hosted not only but two major sporting events – the 2012 Wimbledon Championships and the 2012 Formula 1 Santander British Grand Prix at Silverstone. To honor the English racing heritage and as the home of the Formula 1 organization, HUBLOT, the venue’s official timekeeper, created a limited edition numbered timepiece. Based on its versatile King Power chronograph, the special series took on the characteristics directly from Formula 1’s racing pit. In 18K King Gold, a HUBLOT exclusive alloy formulation of gold, copper, and platinum, the Formula 1 King Power Great Britain Chronograph features a carbon fiber & ceramic bezel which mimics the styling of a high performance brake disc. The racing theme continues onto the “Start” and “Reset” buttons on the side, along with F1 logo transfer on the dial face. A crystal case-back highlights the intricate details going into the watch such as the tungsten carbide oscillating weight and few of the 27 jewels that went into the HUB4100 automatic movement. Waterproof up to 100 meters, with a power reserve of 42 hours, only 250 of these exclusive watches will be for sale at HUBLOT dealers worldwide. In the meantime, Mark Webber of Red Bull Racing-Renault took home the title.
