Style and speed have shifted into high gear this sea­son with a spe­cial, lim­ited edi­tion col­lab­o­ra­tion by Fer­rari and Hublot to mark the 70th an­niver­sary of the iconic Ital­ian car maker. The Tech­frame Fer­rari 70 Years Tour­bil­lon Chrono­graph was de­signed un­der the di­rec­tion of Flavio Man­zoni, Fer­rari’s head of de­sign, us­ing the same cre­ative pro­cesses em­ployed in the de­vel­op­ment of new sports cars. “The styling of the Tech­frame Fer­rari 70 Years Tour­bil­lon Chrono­graph un­der­lies the per­for­mances of the watch,” Man­zoni ex­plains. “No com­po­nent is there by chance.” Hublot’s HUB6311 man­ual-wind tour­bil­lon chrono­graph move­ment is the en­gine at the heart of Man­zoni’s de­sign, and served as in­spi­ra­tion for the watch’s chas­sis. Spe­cially de­vel­oped and man­u­fac­tured by Hublot, this move­ment of­fers five days of power re­serve, while the chrono­graph is op­er­ated by a sin­gle but­ton that con­trols the start, stop, and re­set func­tions. The best of both worlds: Swiss pre­ci­sion and Ital­ian flair... 9470 Brighton Way, Bev­erly Hills, 310-550-0595; hublot.com

The Hublot Tech­frame Fer­rari 70 Years Tour­bil­lon Chrono­graph’s skele­tonized case is avail­able in three lim­ited-edi­tion, 70-piece ver­sions (ABOVE, FROM LEFT): King Gold ($158,000), Ti­ta­nium ($127,000), and PEEK (Polyether Ether Ke­tone) Car­bon ($137,000). The sap­phire dial re­veals the watchmaking ex­cel­lence of Hublot’s HUB6311 man­ual-wind tour­bil­lon chrono­graph move­ment, while an ex­ter­nal raised sec­tion holds the timer. The Fer­rari logo sits at 9 o’clock and is also de­noted on the case­back and crown.
