The world’s premier open-wheel racing circuit thundered back to the US in November, with McLaren’s Lewis Hamilton claiming the checkered flag at the Circuit of the Americas outside Austin, TX. To celebrate, Swiss watchmakers Hublot, the official watchmaker of Formula 1, crafted the F1 King Power Austin—a timepiece created using diverse high-tech materials inspired by Formula 1 racing.
The case? It’s made of titanium, chosen for lightness and strength. The bezel is made of carbon and titanium, and satin-finished with a perforated effect that echoes the cutting-edge performance of an F1 brake disc. The strap is black Hornback alligator leather, accentuating the refined and powerful style of the piece, sewn onto black rubber. The Hublot F1 King Power Austin is available as a limited edition of 250 numbered pieces. As in racing, fortune favors the quick.
