Hublot unveils the F1™ King Power Austin 22 Oct 2012
To mark the return of Formula One racing to America next month with the 2012 Formula 1 United States Grand Prix at Austins all-new Circuit of The Americas, Hublot, the official watchmaker of Formula 1, has decided to introduce a special watch, the aptly-named F1 King Power Austin, available as a limited edition of just 250 numbered pieces.
With its titanium case, a material chosen for its lightness, resistance to corrosion and biocompatibility, the watch features unique elements created using diverse high-tech materials directly inspired by Formula One racing.
Among these are the carbon and titanium bezel, satin-finished with a perforated effect recalling the cutting-edge performance of an F1 brake disc, the start and reset push-pieces, and a 30-minute timer at three o'clock.
The strap is made from black Hornback alligator leather, accentuating the refined and powerful style of the piece, sewn onto black rubber which ensures that the strap is comfortable, hard-wearing and exceptionally flexible, with the red stitching subtly picking up the colour of the dial.
