F1 Racing x HUBLOT Formula 1 King Power Austin Chronograph Watch

By - November 20th, 2012

For the first in five years, the fastest sport on four wheels touched down on US soil once again as the City of Austin hosted Formula 1‘s United States Grand Prix. And in the same winning fashion as he did five years, Vodafone McLaren-MercedesLewis Hamilton claimed victory once again as well. To mark the occasion, Formula 1’s return, and the inaugural event for the new “Circuit of The Americas” raceway, HUBLOT, the Official Watch of Formula 1, created the F1 King Power Austin Chronograph. Made from titanium with satin finishes, the 48 mm in diameter King Power features HUBLOT’s own HUB4100 chronograph movement with automatic winding. Inspired by the technical aspects of F1 Racing, the watch includes a set of push pieces with markings “START” and “RESET”. Another reference is the titanium and carbon fiber bezel, fashioned in the likeness of “high tech brake disc”. Tipped with black SuperLuminova luminescent, a mostly red dial rests on black outlines with hints of blue and white. Accentuated by a black hornback alligator leather band reinforced by black rubber and red stitching, only 250 units of the F1 King Power Austin will be available through HUBLOT retail locations worldwide.
