The F1™ King Power Great BritainHublot celebrates the 2012 FORMULA 1 SANTANDER BRITISH GRAND PRIX
Great Britain. Home of Formula 1™, its management and most of its teams. As the Official Watchmaker of Formula 1™, Hublot is proud to present the new F1™ King Power Great Britain, available in a limited edition of 250 numbered pieces.
This F1 King Power Great Britain is rendered unique by several features executed in a range of high-tech materials directly inspired by Formula 1™, such as the carbon fiber and ceramic bezel with a circulargrained satin finish, adorned with multiple holes evoking a high performance brake disc, as well as the push-buttons for starting and resetting, and a 30-minute to 3-hour counter. The strap is made from black alligator horn back stitched onto black rubber, with red stitching. Fusion of the materials, the case is made of 18K King Gold.
King Gold is the name of the 18 carat gold alloy used by Hublot. Its exclusive color is even redder than the traditional 5N red gold. To do so, the Hublot metallurgists increased the percentage of copper and added platinum order to stabilize the colour over the years and to neutralize the oxidation. The exact composition of this alloy is classified.
