The most exclusive watch ever to honour automobile racing
La Cote des Montres - April 21st, 2010
Cabestan and Ferrari have partnered to jointly design and produce a limited edition luxury timepiece to celebrate the Prancing Horse’s Formula 1 racing history, deeply inspired by Ferrari race car technology and design.
The result of this magical collaboration: 8 cubic centimetres of pure mechanical perfection and exacting design perfectly embodying the Scuderia Ferrari DNA.
The Scuderia Ferrari One by Cabestan will only be made available to Ferrari clients
To reach deep into Ferrari DNA, Jean-François Ruchonnet teamed up with the Ferrari design team in Maranello, led by Design Director Flavio Manzoni. The two worked together to identify elements in Ferrari’s Formula 1 race cars that would become the basic design components.
The case embodies speed, power and aerodynamic perfection, and is made of a titanium alloy created for components of Ferrari Formula 1 cars. The single crystal enhances the distinctive visual lineage that is unmistakably Ferrari. On the sides, a special magnesium alloy was used to create likenesses of race car wheels and the lug nuts, that are emblematic of motor sports.
The motor is perfectly visible with its large wheel, stylishly engraved lightweight aluminum rotary drums and carbon fiber center plate. Even the leather strap, captures the emotion of Daytona leather seats of Ferrari automobiles.
The nucleus of the motor with its vertical gear-trains is a vertical tourbillon coupled with a miniature chain and fusée, a 6-speed automatic transmission, that compensates the torque curve of the mainspring and delivers a constant force to the movement resulting in amazing accuracy : ± 1 second per day.
The result is an exceptional timepiece, perfectly embodying the passion, excitement and performance of the Scuderia Ferrari.
