One can only expect the unexpected from the alliance of these two iconic brands A fine collaboration of two brands that believe in creating unique bold designs and motorisation. To celebrate the 90th birthday of the most successful race team of all time, Hublot, has created a Big Bang Scuderia Ferrari 90th Anniversary watch and in three limited editions.
HUBLOT Big Bang Scuderia Ferrari 90th Anniversary
All three models of the Big Bang Scuderia Ferrari 90th Anniversary watch naturally reflect the rich history and heritage of Scuderia Ferrari and have been designed in collaboration with the Ferrari Design Centre. Needless to say, the development of materials has been at the forefront of innovation both in the realm of car design and watch design. So, it is not surprising that we have this aspect significantly reflected herein.
Let’s dive into what sets the Big Bang Scuderia Ferrari 90th Anniversary watch editions apart? Well, the first version is an obvious nod to the past. The visible metal parts, the peccary leather from the bucket seats and the brushed look of the dashboard are represented here by the platinum case and the stitched perforated strap. In-line with the purest traditions of car racing, the dial on this version of the Big Bang Scuderia Ferrari 90th Anniversary watch evokes the old-fashioned speedometers with its calendar underlined in yellow. Vintage yet edgy.
The second edition of the Big Bang Scuderia Ferrari 90th Anniversary watch reflects the present. Today, research into new composite materials and high-technology are all powerful in competition driving. With a case made from 3D carbon, strapped on a Nomex strap (the fire-resistant synthetic fibre used to make racing driver’s suits), this black and red beast is sure to make a statement.
From the past and present we now move into the future. The third edition of the Big Bang Scuderia Ferrari 90th Anniversary edition is a futuristic watch that exudes innovation with its transparent sapphire case back. It demonstrates the extreme sophistication that technology is heading towards and the possibilities it offers for the future. The highlight in this version of the Big Bang Scuderia Ferrari 90th Anniversary watch is the Kevlar pattern fabric strap and the black rubber with the light grey stitching.
“Scuderia Ferrari is the only organisation of its kind in the world as it is both a monument to motorsport and a modern racing team that is competitive and at the cutting-edge of technology. It embodies passion and values that Hublot shares every day. Happy birthday Scuderia, we look forward to sharing many more victories with our legendary partner!”

All three editions of the Big Bang Scuderia Ferrari 90th Anniversary watch are unique and have their own strong identity. However, here’s what they have in common – the 45-mm-diameter of each of the three editions of the Big Bang Scuderia Ferrari 90th Anniversary watches house the famous UNICO movement, a flyback chronograph that offers a 72-hour power reserve. The bezel is cut in ceramic carbon, the same material that is used for the Formula 1 brake discs. Each of the three versions of the Hublot Big Bang Scuderia Ferrari 90th Anniversary watch bears one of the three colours of the Scuderia on its border, the numbers and the index. Yellow for the platinum edition, red for the 3D carbon edition and black for the sapphire edition.
All three versions of the Big Bang Scuderia Ferrari 90th Anniversary watch will be produced in a limited edition of 90, and 10 exceptional ‘collector’ sets with all three watches will also be available.
Here’s to marking another legendary milestone, and this time with a veritable trio!
