50-day power reserve: A World Record power reserve
for a hand-wound Tourbillon wristwatch.
Movement 100% designed, developed and produced
by the Hublot Manufacture engineers and watchmakers
We are in the world of the exceptional. The MP-05 “LaFerrari” represents a very special series,
entirely designed and developed by the Hublot Manufacture engineers and watchmakers in
tribute to “LaFerrari”.
In a demonstration and testimony that lives up to the car, it has achieved a historic record with
its 50-day power reserve. It is also the watch with the most watchmaking components created
to date by Hublot (637).
The watch and the car: The MP-05 “LaFerrari” was developed – in technical and design terms –
entirely in parallel with the car, alongside the Ferrari teams. They share a number of common
points. Able to boast no fewer than 637 components for the movement, which is also equipped
with a Tourbillon, as well as a power reserve of approximately 50 days thanks to its 11 barrels,
arranged in a line just like a spinal column and interconnected so that they do not each
discharge in turn but support each other, this watch is closer to being a concept watch.
The watch is finely wrought in terms of shape, featuring a complex shaped sapphire crystal
clearly reminiscent of the car’s outline, as well as an open case-back, and is made from black
PVD titanium. It is topped by a titanium and carbon insert in its centre, revealing the winding
crown. The time-setting crown is positioned under the case. Both are completely integrated
into the design, and therefore practically invisible.
The movement has an original display, featuring first off on the front vertical face the small
seconds indicated by means of an aluminium cylinder fastened onto the suspended Tourbillon
cage (significantly bigger than usual with a cage diameter of 14.50 mm, for even better
appreciation of the mechanical parts).
The hour and minute are displayed to the right of the barrels, also indicated by means of one
anodised black aluminium cylinder each. On their left is the cylinder indicating the power
reserve. Reinforcing bars either side, made from anodised red aluminium, bring to mind
Ferrari’s red signature.
A small detail, but one which makes reading the time easier; on each cylinder the size of the
numerals has been maximised with white SuperLuminova™, to enhance the display for ease
of reading. This is all rounded off by a rubber strap with a special folding buckle in black PVD
The desire for a truly exceptional watch has been extended to the design of the presentation
case, made from schedoni leather and carbon fibre, containing the specific tools for winding
the watch, and whose design was also inspired by the world of motoring. Limited edition of 50
