If you are a Formula 1 enthusiast, you already know that the F1 World Championship is returning to the States this year, and that between November 16-18 the penultimate Grand Prix of the season will take place on the new Circuit of Americas.
As a diehard fan of the sport, you probably already have tickets to Austin, Texas, but we believe there is only one more thing that you need to have for this special occasion. The hot F1 King Power Austin timepiece by Hublot. Specially created for this event, the watch is a stunning piece of modern horlogerie, flaunting an elegant black Hornback alligator leather strap and a sporty titanium case.
The case is at the same time lightweight, highly resistant, biocompatible and corrosion resistant, but this is not the only top-notch element of the watch. Inspired by F1 cars, it flaunts carbon and titanium bezel with perforations that make it look like a disk brake. The vertical satin finish adds some extra appeal to the design.
F1 King Power Austin features a date window at 4:30, a 30-minute timer at 3 o’clock, start and reset push buttons, black SuperLuminova hour hands, black composite resin crown and lateral inserts, antireflective sapphire crystal, and a visually powerful red and black charcoal dial. A grey F1 logo is situated at 12 o’clock, to mark it as a special edition watch. Boasting 250 pieces, the timepiece is powered by Hublot’s HUB4100 mechanical chronograph automatically wound movement, it has a power reserve of 42 hours, and is water resistant to 10 ATM.
