Say what you will about Hublot, but you have to admit that they do release some pretty awesome pieces. Take the Techframe Ferrari Tourbillon Chronograph Carbon for example, now available with yellow-coloured highlights. This is a seriously cool watch, with a huge amount of technical prowess encased within that stunning carbon body. Let’s take a closer look at one of Hublot’s super pieces.
The architectural design of that 45mm carbon case is amazing, both from a visceral and an engineering stand-point. Working with carbon is hard enough, but Hublot have gone one step further and skeletonised the framework surrounding the body of the case and the dial. This creates the illusion of size and expansiveness, but in reality, the 45mm case is really quite wearable and doesn’t seem to be overly large. The iconic H-shaped titanium screws round off an exterior that’s profoundly Hublot, and it’s one that absolutely works for the dynamic of the Hublot Techframe Ferrari Tourbillon Chronograph Carbon Yellow.
The dial continues the Hublot Techframe Ferrari Tourbillon Chronograph Carbon Yellow’s sporty theme, too. Yellow highlights adorn the face of the watch, and there’s a clear distinction between the piece’s functions, ensuring legibility and the speedy acquisition of information from the dial. The bold hour and minute hands are half-filled with luminescent material, and the massive tourbillon is visible in the lower left quadrant of the dial.
Powering the Hublot Techframe Ferrari Tourbillon Chronograph Carbon Yellow is Hublot’s HUB6311. This is a manually wound calibre that is made up of a skeletonised tourbillon and a chronograph. The power reserve of the HUB6311 is astonishing, too. Rated at 115-hours when fully wound, the HUB6311 is one serious bit of high watchmaking.
The Techframe Ferrari Tourbillon Chronograph Carbon Yellow is an amazing timepiece that encompasses all the facets and virtues of a truly contemporary timepiece. This is a very specific watch made for a very specific market base, and if you’re one of the seventy lucky owners of the Techframe Ferrari Tourbillon Chronograph Carbon Yellow, you can rest assured that you won’t likely be running into anyone wearing the same watch as you.
