F1™ King Power Interlagos

Hublot celebrates the Formula 1 Grande Prêmio Petrobras Do Brasil 2011
La Cote des Montres - December 2nd, 2011

Interlagos. The last Grand Prix of this season’s FIA Formula One World Championship™. A final held in Brazil in the warm festive atmosphere for which the Brazilians are so famous.

As the Official Watchmaker of Formula 1™, Hublot is proud to present the new F1™ King Power Interlagos in tribute to the land of samba and the famous São Paulo circuit (famous because, unlike other courses, it runs anticlockwise), available in a limited edition of 250 numbered pieces.

Sporting the same cobalt blue (pantone 280) that is found in the centre of the Brazilian national flag, the F1™ King Power Interlagos is rendered unique by several features executed in a range of high-tech materials directly inspired by Formula 1™ (some of which have never before been used in watchmaking), such as the ceramic bezel with a circular- grained satin finish, adorned with multiple holes evoking the high performance of a brake disc, as well as the push-buttons for starting and resetting, the split-seconds function and a 30-minute to 3-hour counter. The strap is made from black alligator back stitched onto black rubber, with blue stitching.
