Giuliano Mazzuoli Contagiri 8C Competizione Watch - Tribute to Sport Tradition of Alfa Romeo

Aug 14, 2010
Giuliano Mazzuoli has proudly unveiled a special version of its incredible Contagiri 8C Competizione watch, which pays tribute to the glorious sport tradition of Alfa Romeo.

On this occasion, in the historic city of Florence there was arranged an unprecedented parade of Alfa Romeo 8C automobiles. It was held to celebrate style, sports passion, tradition as well as technical performance - the values perfectly mirrored in the company’s new horological achievement.

The creation of the timekeeper, that reflects the Giuliano Mazzuoli’s experience as a racecar driver, required four years of intensive efforts. The word Contagiri, included into the name of this product, means tachometer when translated from Italian. The tachometer of a car is a symbol of sports performance, which provided inspiration for this extraordinary timepiece.

The novelty employs a 13.30 mm thick case, which measures 44 mm in diameter. It is rendered in stainless steel and black diamond-like-carbon or 18-karat rose gold and titanium. The watch demonstrates a case-back, lunette and function lever, crafted from polished stainless steel for the version in stainless steel and from 18K rose gold for the interpretation in rose gold and titanium. The watch handles depths of up to 50 meters.

The absolute precision of the Giuliano Mazzuoli watch is guaranteed by a mechanical self-winding movement - Calibre GM Cambiosequenziale/01 alternance 10.

Incorporating 29 jewels, this mechanism is composed of 131 individual parts. The caliber runs at the rate of 28,800 vibrations per hour and offers a 42-hour power reserve. The movement incorporates a main plate and bridges, graced with Cotes de Geneve finish.

The new Giuliano Mazzuoli Contagiri 8C Competizione watch shows off a black or argente dial, completed with Arabic numerals. The display is highlighted by a central hour hand, which retrogrades after going through an arc of 270°. The dial is shielded by a convex sapphire crystal.

Keeping the reliable men’s watch secured to the wearer’s wrist is a black rubber strap. It is finalized by an ardillon buckle, sculptured in stainless steel or 18K rose gold.

The Giuliano Mazzuoli watch is available in a box, handcrafted using prestigious materials. Its color coincides with that of the 8C owner’s automobile.

Issued in a limited series of 500 pieces, this timekeeping instrument will surely delight the audience with a preference for essential design which conceals unparalleled functionality.
