Hublot Releases New F1 King Power Austin Watch For The 2012 Formula 1 Grand Prix

Oct 31, 2012

This November 18th the Formula 1 Grand Prix makes its triumphant return to the United States set to take place in Austin, Texas. The last Grand Prix to take place in the U.S. was back in 2007 in Indianapolis. In honor of this event at the new “Circuit of the Americas” Hublot has designed a special commemorative watch named the F1 King Power Austin in a limited edition of 250 piece.

Hublot, the Offical Watch of Formula 1, has pulled out all of the stops in the design of this timepiece. The F1 King Power Austin has drawn inspiration from the Formula 1 race itself, with a titanium case, carbon and titanium bezel, a perforated satin-finish, and a vibrant red dial with a chronograph function. This was designed to be lightweight, durable, and the complete embodiment of the Formula 1 spirit. The strap is a sleek looking black Hornback alligator leather sewn onto rubber, accented with red stitching to draw back into the design of the dial.

Hublot has been the Offical Watchmaker of Formula 1 since March of 2010 and has since created ten types of limited edition Formula 1 watches. The Formula 1 is one of the world’s most prominent motor racing competitions to date and the new Hublot F1 King Power Austin Watch is the perfect partner to this race.
