One of the 250 pieces to be donated to charity
Last week, one day prior to the 2011 Formula 1 Japanese Grand Prix, Hublot revealed the F1 King Power Suzuka watch, a timepiece named after the Japanese circuit and bearing the colors of the Japanese flag, red and white.
This exclusive timepiece released for the 15th Round of the FIA Formula One Championship features an array of high-tech materials directly inspired by Formula 1, such as a ceramic bezel with a circular grained satin finished adorned with multiple holes to represent a high performance brake disk, a strap made from rubber and Nomex, a synthetic fiber developed by Dupont De Nemours and used to make the suits worn by the F1 drivers.
The F1 King Power Suzuka will be a limited edition of only 250 pieces to be made. And as part of the contacnt support to the Kids Earth Fund (KEF), Hublot announced that the coveted and one of a kind timepiece engraved with the number 0 out of the 250 will be auctioned, with all the funds raised donated to KEF.
KEF, since its foundation in 1998, has been sponsored by corporate enterprises. At the moment, the organization is establishing the 12th home base named “Kids Earth Home” in Watari, an area deeply affected by the Tsunami in March earlier this year. Hublot, who has previously donated all the proceeds from an auction of the “King Power Red Devil” limited edition watch, hopes this commitment will help children to restore their energy to have brilliant dreams.
