Ferrari Watches - Passion for High Speeds and Precision

Aug 20, 2007
A union between a watch-making company and a car manufacture is predestined to enjoy great success. The partners share common values - love for precision, great performance, top quality and facing new challenges.

A series of Panerai Ferrari watches and Girard-Perregaux Ferrari watches are found among the most highly demanded car-themed timepieces.

Streamlined shapes and technological advancement of Ferrari cars have inspired watchmakers of the renowned brands for creating timepieces under the same brand name.

While developing Ferrari watches, the watch specialists repeated the smooth lines of a Ferrari car - they wanted the timepieces be associated with horse power, grace, precision, and superb performance of the racing car.

Ferrari built the partnership with both Panerai and Girard-Perregaux but in different time periods. The story started with Ferrari's successful cooperation with Girard-Perregaux.

Luigi Macaluso, the company's president and former race driver of the Scuderia Team, has always admired Ferrari cars. As a result, the Girard-Perregaux Company became the first ever to produce watches featuring the legendary Ferrari Horse.

In 1993 Luigi Macaluso signed a partnership contract with Ferrari. The world witnessed the appearance of the limited edition split-seconds timepieces embellished with the Ferrari emblem. Girard-Perregaux watchmakers possessed significant experience in producing sports watches that turned out to be really useful in developing the F1 World Champion. The chronograph paid tribute to the Maranello designers and was designed to resemble the F1 Ferrari car.

The partnership between Girard-Perregaux and Ferrari finished in 2004. Today everyone interested in Girard-Perregaux creations devoted to Ferrari cars has a great chance to admire Girard-Perregaux Ferrari watch models in the Girard-Perregaux watch museum.

Later on, Officine Panerai became the new Ferrari's partner - the union much appreciated by the Italian racing fans. The brand has developed two Panerai Ferrari watch collections - Granturismo and Scuderia, initially presented at the SIHH in 2006. The timepieces gained huge success among watch connoisseur and racing fans due to their complicated technological features and distinctive design.

Ferrari watches are aimed at customers passionate about racing, high speeds and precision. The timepieces feature cases and dials with highly detailed scale. The display of Ferrari watches will remind you the control board of a Ferrari car. Your attention will be also caught by red or light-gray sub-dials, specially shaped hands and smooth shapes - obvious hints at a Ferrari car.

A Ferrari watch will accentuate the style of a man who prefers sporty styled or casual clothes and accessories. It will surely add masculinity to the overall appearance of a man. This is just a great timepiece for a man attracted by the world of racing and precision timekeeping.
