if you have been following this blog, then might have already read about the various Hublot F1 King Power time pieces and if you can’t get enough of the Hublot and F1 collaboration, here’s another one from the Official Watchmaker for Formula One to add to your growing list. Hublot has unveiled the Hublot F1™ King Power Abu Dhabi Limited Edition to mark the 2011 Formula 1 Etihad Airways Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. the Hublot F1™ King Power Abu Dhabi has been specially designed in recognition to the Yas Marina Circuit, which is celebrated for being the most technologically advanced circuits in the world. like the previous King Powers, this particular edition is also crafted from materials inspired by Formula 1, including a ceramic bezel that sports a circular-grained satin finish with holes that reminisces of a high performance brake disc, and a strap made from a combination of rubber and Nomex, a synthetic fiber used in the suits worn by F1 drivers.
other features of this luxury chronography time piece include Start, Reset and Split push buttons, split second function and a 30-minute counter located at the 3 o’clock position. only 250 pieces of this exclusive time piece will be made available, so if you are looking at adding yet another F1 King Power to your collection, then you better be quick. you know, 250 isn’t a big number and i am quite sure there are many F1 fans in Abu Dhabi who can afford to grab of these without a batting an eyelid.
