Panerai Unveils Ferrari Scuderia Chrono 1/8th second

Jan 12, 2009
Panerai has enlarged its Scuderia collection with a new timepiece - Ferrari Scuderia Chrono 1/8th second.

The sporty watch catches the glance by its aesthetic characteristics. It demonstrates the yellow shield, the distinctive feature of the Scuderia Collection, yellow hands, and the Tachymeter scale.

You will notice two subsidiary counters for highlighting the minutes and for the 1/8th-second function. The rotor is engraved with the legendary Prancing Horse.

The stainless steel case of the Panerai watch measures 45 mm in diameter. It features polished finish and brushed edges.

The case construction incorporates screw-down chronograph push-pieces, a winding crown with the Ferrari logo and a rim with square grille pattern. The timepiece is 100-meter water-resistant.

The black dial of the watch is completed with the Ferrari shield at 12 oclock, 60-minute scale with Arabic numerals, and tachymeter scale on the outer edge. The minute counter is found at 3 oclock, while the 1/8th-second dial is positioned at 9 oclock. The dial is protected by sapphire crystal with anti-reflective treatment.

The chronograph watch is equipped with an automatic mechanical movement - the Panerai calibre OP XXI. The 42-jewel movement performs 28,800 alternations per hour. The mechanism incorporates an Incabloc anti-shock device and provides a 42-hour power-reserve. The bridges of the movement are adorned with Cotes de Geneve decoration.

The timepiece has been created in a limited edition of 300 pieces.

The Ferrari Scuderia Chrono 1/8th second watch has been inspired by the Enzo, the fastest Ferrari car ever. It provides the sense of acceleration and preciousness and possesses the unique nature of the limited edition, being based on the use of the most advanced technology, the same as the Enzo. The legendary Formula 1 car united the advantageous characteristics of a Grand Prix single seater and features of a road car. It was introduced in 2002 and boasted the ability to exceed 350 kilometers per hour. It was produced in a limited edition of 399 examples.

Michael Schumacher was the one who tested the car and advised on the way of improving its performance, safety and road holding. The fastest Ferrari car ever has now been recreated as the FXX, in an extremely limited edition of 29 examples. It is remarkable that the owner of the Ferrari Enzo FXX may drive it only on the track and are invited to act as test drivers in a special program in order to come up with further developments.

The Panerai Ferrari watch is available with two straps a stylish rubber strap with Ferrari inscription and a black calf leather strap with cayman lining.
