    It was only two weeks ago that Hublot launched the Mexico Big Bang Ferrari. Now they have moved North of the border in order to celebrate the opening of a new boutique and the presence of the Scuderia in Texas. Hublot now unveils another exclusive edition: the Big Bang Ferrari Texas. Imbued with the DNA of both Hublot and Ferrari, the watch also pays tribute to the Lone Star State by reflecting its colours of navy blue, red and white, as seen on the state flag.

    The Big Bang Ferrari Texas features a 45m titanium case crowned with a cylindrical bezel in black ceramic. The watch is powered by the UNICO Flyback chronograph movement (which can be reset at any time) and is visible through the sapphire dial. The UNICO movement was developed entirely in-house and was selected, designed and developed by Hublot expressly for the Big Bang Ferrari.

    As for the new boutique in Houston, it’s a fusion of styles: in the more private spaces, gilded velvet is combined with elegant fabrics to give a contemporary reinterpretation of sixteenth century mouldings. A new lighting concept has also been installed for the display cases, using focused beams of light to highlight the watches, movements and precious stones. The ambience is designed to be one of warmth and softness in shades of black and grey with contemporary furniture, including sofas and armchairs in full-grain leather, all hand-made in Italy.

    Interesting they'd get Felipe Massa, who is a Richard Mille ambassador. Wonder how that all worked out legally speaking.
