Hublot gathers 50 dedicated clients, ensconce them comfortably in iconic Ferraris in front of a drive-in style movie screen for the debut of the first ever animated movie for the MP-05 LaFerrari Sapphire. The aficionados of a Swiss luxury watchmaker enjoyed a sneak preview of a film that pays homage to a 1200 HP hybrid supercar, the Ferrari FXX K, and a superwatch with a 50-day power reserve. The movie is a joint production that has been created by Digital Domain, world leaders in action movies and visual effects.
The MP-05 LaFerrari Movie animated film unveils the story of the HUB9005.H1.PN.1 movement, a classic motor and the unique design of its sapphire case.
The MP-05 “LaFerrari” Sapphire was machined from 7 blocks of sapphire, involving more than 600 hours’ work and precise 3D workmanship to produce an ultra-light 53.5 grams on the wrist. Its unique movement comprises ultra-lightweight carbon components. It has a record-breaking power reserve of 50 days, and 11 series-coupled barrels set in a spine formation that dominate the centre of the watch and keep the movement turning with its 637 components, a record number.
With the help of the virtuosity of Digital Domain, The MP-05 LaFerrari Movie boasts special effects that are worthy of Hollywood’s top blockbusters. The FXX K has been reconstituted with special computer effects and its technical features have been configured to provide the most realistic driving experience possible. Digital Domain made it possible to have all the images animated by a real-life driver at the steering wheel. Wow!
As a result, the public can enjoy a movie with a real experience and realistic sensations. The unique film boasts its very own soundtrack, based on the sound of the FXX K’s engine.
