At Baselworld, Hublot unveiled a watch with a massive power reserve of 50-days, a world record for a hand-wound tourbillon wristwatch. The MP-05 LaFerrari Ferrari is a special series created as a homage to Ferrari’s new LaFerrari supercar. In fact, it was developed “in technical and design terms - entirely in parallel with the car, alongside the Ferrari teams.” They even share a number of common elements.
The MP-05 utilizes 637 components, 108 of which are jewels. And to achieve the record breaking power-reserve, the watch utilizes 11 series-coupled power barrels. All 11 barrels, which are arranged like a spinal column and interconnected so they do not discharge in turn but support each other, are visible in the center of the dial.
