Marking time on the Malaysia GP.
ROLEX Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona Rolex,
the official timekeeper of Formula One, marks high quality performance with the new Oyster
PerpetualCosmographDaytona. Bestowed with a Superlative Chronometer certification, this 18K yellow gold watch is precise to the order of −2/+2 seconds per day after casing, more than twice the requirements of an official chronometer. The impressive movement is the Calibre 4130 mechanical chronograph, equipped with a self-winding module featuring a Perpetual rotor and patented Parachrom hairspring in the oscillator, making it virtually immune to shocks and temperature fluctuations. Atop the 40mm case is a patented monobloc Cerachrom bezel engraved with a highly legible tachymetric scale marked with a thin layer of 18K gold. The
CosmographDaytona remains firmly attached to the wrist at high speeds thanks to the Oysterflex bracelet fitted with an 18K yellow gold Oysterlock safety clasp that prevents accidental opening.
HUBLOT Big Bang Ferrari Unico Carbon
The speedy BigBangFerrariUnicoCarbon in unidirectional carbon by Hublot is a piece that any Ferrari lover will appreciate. The Ferrari design principles are clearly seen through the rhodiumplated dial, where the minute counter and date window are directly inspired by the Italian sportscar manufacturer’s distinctive tachometer gauge, while the seconds counter resembles an air extractor. The numerals are positioned in line with the indices, creating a cool 3D effect that completes the watch’s automotive spirit. Emblazoned across the left-side profile of the 45mm carbon case is the Ferrari name, while the streamlined pushers with dual red stripes are inspired by the pedals from Ferrari car cabins. Under the hood lies the Hublot Manufacture Unico automatic flyback chronograph movement, with the column wheel visible on the dial side and an oscillating weight resembling the iconic star spoke design of the Ferrari wheel rims.
