The partnership between Hublot Watches Under 2000 Replica and Ferrari is currently about five years old, and the two will be celebrating Ferrari’s 70th Anniversary together with a brand new watch designed from the Italian carmaker using a fresh new Hublot motion too. For Baselworld 2017, the Hublot Techframe Ferrari Tourbillon Chronograph watch honoring this 70th anniversary will come in three variations: King Gold, Titanium, and PEEK Carbon, every one of which is going to be a limited edition run of – you guessed it – 70 pieces.Hublot and Ferrari have done way more than many car and watch manufacturer collaborations, therefore it’s not surprising that instead of slapping some decoration on an existing slice, we see a completely brand new watch altogether. The architectural and bridged design of the watch is far from becoming over-the-top and overdesigned, and it is a relief. It’s competitive where it has to be without overcompensating, is lightweight and hard (at least once you think about the Titanium and carbon versions), and can also be a testament to Hublot’s success of becoming a severe manufacture in both design and movements.The new HUB6311 manual-wind movement within the Hublot Techframe Ferrari Tourbillon Chronograph is manufactured from 253 parts and contains a 5-day power reserve. The chronograph is one pusher function for starting, stopping, and resetting the timer. It is an old-school thing of fascination when it comes to timepieces, but I always adore and revel in the discretion brought by one pusher. I am not saying that the watch is near discreet, however, the pusher is one of those few splashes of colour we see here, aptly completed in P485 Ferrari red. The other reddish pushers you see by the lugs are to get an easy strap shifting system, which is almost always a welcome feature.Looking like a Star Wars helmet for a cyborg, the Hublot MP-09 Tourbillon Bi-Axis watch isn’t for the faint of heart contemplating design and price. They’ve shown that they’re capable of thriving amid controversy whilst delivering the sort of watches capable of stopping us directly in our tracks as we telephone through our #dailywatch Instagram feeds.
Designed in collaboration with graffiti and street artist Tristan Eaton, the Classic Fusion Aerofusion Chronograph Concrete Jungle is the latest Hublot Watches 90 Off Replica to experiment with novel materials.
The bezel is made of concrete, or more specifically concrete mixed with epoxy resin to increase the robustness of the material, a reference to the “concrete jungle” that is New York City.
On the rear of the watch a collage motif depicted the Statue of Liberty created by Mr Eaton is printed on the sapphire case back, while the artist’s emblem is on the sub-dial at three o’clock.
The rest of the watch is identical to the standard Classic Fusion Aerofusion Chronograph, with a 45mm case in black ceramic, equipped with the HUB1155 movement, a Sellita SW300 automatic with a chronograph module.

The Classic Fusion Aerofusion Chronograph Concrete Jungle (ref. 525.CI.0117.NR.NYC16) is available only at Hublot’s New York boutiques on Madison Avenue and Fifth Avenue, priced at US$19,500.
