The Hublot MP-05 LaFerrari watch has never been about ideal legibility, but it gets the job done. More important is that the entire case looks like a LaFerrari engine bay, with the mechanical movement inside representing, of course, the engine.

There are 11 series-coupled barrels set in a spine formation down the center of the watch, which work together to keep the watch turning for up to seven weeks at a time.Only 50 of these limited-edition watches are being made, making it more exclusive than the LaFerrari car itself, of which there will be 499 made.
