#18 Hublot Big Bang Ferrari U.K. limited edition

Hublot Big Bang Ferrari U.K. Limited edition, November 28th 2013.

I once again, had the greatest of pleasure of attending the launch event of the new Hublot Big Bang Ferrari U.K. limited edition at the H.R. Owen Ferrari Atelier, hosted by Ferrari and Marcus Watches.

This is the piece that was unveiled on the night.
Some of the key features of the Hublot Big Bang Ferrari UK limited edition include the in-house Unico chronograph movement (since this is fairly standard within the Big Bang range, I won't go into details with the movement), Titanium case with display back, ceramic bezel and of course the trademark quick-change strap system and black leather strap with Ferrari-red stitching. The case measures at 45mm and the dial is decorated with Ferrari-red hands and hour-markers and the Ferrari Stallion at 9 o'clock position.

 A bit of party-pooping but just wanted to show how it differs with an Offshore in terms of size. 
The Ferrari Big Bang measures 3mm bigger than the Offshore and it sure does feel much bigger when put on the wrist. Although the piece is quite chunky, it feels quite light because as aforementioned, the case and the bezel are made from titanium and ceramic respectively.

These will retail for 19,900GBP and they are strictly limited to 50 pieces (and obviously will only be available in the U.K.)

To summarise the piece in one sentence - I personally think this is one of the best Hublot's out in the market at this moment. I think it looks great and it feels great when it is on the wrist. If you are thinking of acquiring a Hublot, this piece should seriously be considered.
