Named after the LaFerrari hybrid supercar launched at the Geneva Motor Show, the Masterpiece MP-05 LaFerrari was created by Mathias Buttet, the techno guru at Hublot who also launched the MP-02 Key of Time.

The watch was developed—in technical and design terms—in parallel with the car, alongside the Ferrari teams. Boasting 637 components for the movement (which is also equipped with a Tourbillon and a power reserve of 50 days) a sequence of interconnected barrels are aligned like a spinal column along the surface of the watch. Definitely a dramatic visual statement. The cost you ask? Around $475k USD.
