Swiss Luxury Hublot MP-05 LaFerrari Watch With Power For 50 Days Price

Recommended Posts

The story of the LaFerrari goes back to before its official launch in 2013, when aBlogtoWatch first went hands-on with Hublot's 50-day power reserve timepiece. In case you are wondering, the connection to Ferrari is that Hublot is their official high-end watch making partner. The complicated movement inside the watch has elements from a series of exotic watch projects developed by Mathias Buttet, who came to Hublot after running BNB Concept.
Finding the perfect accessory to compliment your Ferrari LaFerrari was a difficult task — until now. Developed alongside the Ferrari teams and in parallel with the car, the Hublot Masterpiece MP-05 LaFerrari Watch is a feat of engineering worthy of the venerable race car company's flagship. It's main claim to fame is a 50-day power reserve — a world record for a hand-wound Tourbillon wristwatch, and made possible by a custom movement designed, developed, and produced in-house. 
Said to have taken 600 hours to develop, the case weighs more than 53 grams and allows an almost unhindered view of the 637-part tourbillon movement, which features no fewer than 11 spring barrels. These form a “spine” running through the centre of the watch and enable it to run autonomously for 50 days once fully charged with a special, electric winder. The idea is to represent the power of La Ferrari’s engine in clockwork form.
A new piece for 2016, the Hublot MP-05 LaFerrari Sapphire dresses Hublot's Ferrari engine-inspired movement in an all-sapphire case. Several years ago, Richard Mille was a "pioneer" in sapphire, releasing a timepiece produced from a single "monolithic" piece of this super-hard crystal. It cost over $1,000,000, and since then Richard Mille has followed up with a few more sapphire crystal-cased watches each with comparable prices or even higher, reaching over $2,000,000.
