The Hublot F1 King Power Austin Watch Celebrates F1’s Return to the United States

Formula 1 makes its grand return to American soil this year! To celebrate the event, which will take place from the 16th to the 18th of November 2012, the Swiss watch brand Hublot, Official Watchmaker of Formula 1, has created the Hublot F1 King Power watch as a limited edition of 250 timepieces.

A “special” watch for the Hublot brand

Hublot, official watch of Formula 1, has chosen to celebrate the penultimate Grand Prix of the season, to be held in Austin, by launching an impressive watch, the F1 King PowerAustin, which has a dial 48mm in diameter, is waterproof to 100 metres, and has a titanium case for greater lightness and resistance to corrosion… The watch also has a 30-minute timer at 3 o’clock. The different components that make up the new Hublot watch moreover draw inspiration from the Formula 1 universe, such as the carbon and titanium bezel, perforated to evoke a Formula 1 brake disc.

The Hublot F1 King Power Austin: an elegant and functional watch

Though its design clearly boasts a lineage of a sporting nature with regard to the Formula 1 universe, the Hublot watch itself remains elegant: the black rubber and hornback crocodile strap give the timepiece a touch of chic, all the while assuring exceptional comfort, solidity and flexibility. The strap’s red stitching evokes the colour of the dial, making the watch an object of elegance.
