The very first glance at the Cabestan Scuderia Ferrari One watch leaves no doubt - it is inspired by Ferrari race cars.
Jean-Francois Ruchonnet is the one who created the high-performance watch featuring a sleek and racy design and high tech materials used for Ferrari Formula 1 race cars. The watchmaker joined efforts with the Ferrari design team located in Maranello and its leader - Design Director Flavio Manzoni. Together, they decided on the major design components for the new Scuderia Ferrari One watch.
If you are falling in love with this time-machine, you will be disappointed to find out that it will be limited to 60 pieces and available only to Ferrari clients (of course, if you are not one of the lucky beggars).
The case of the new Cabestan watch, synonymous to speed, power and aerodynamic perfection, is sculptured from a titanium alloy used for parts of Ferrari Formula 1 cars. The case construction incorporates a single crystal that surpasses the case edges. On the sides of the case the watch creators used a special magnesium alloy to make one think of race car wheels. The lug nuts are inspired by pit stop tire changes in the course of Grand Prix races.
Under the crystal, the glance is caught by the revolutionary vertical gear-train of the motor. You will see the large wheel inspired by the F1 world. The rotary drums, produced from lightweight aluminum, feature engraved numerals suggested by the instrument panels displaying real time data to Ferrari's Formula 1 drivers.
The middle part of the dial demonstrates a block of carbon composite material developed by Ferrari and used in high-performance car parts for them to acquire a high tensile strength and low weight ratio.
The Cabestan Scuderia Ferrari One watch is presented on a leather strap that will remind you of the Daytona leather seats of Ferrari cars.
The zest of the watch’s motor is its vertical tourbillon. It was developed by famous master watchmaker Eric Coudray. The watch provides utmost precision of timekeeping as the energy delivered to the watch’s engine is transmitted by a miniature chain and fuse, ideally compensating for the torque curve of the mainspring, applying a six-speed automatic transmission to deliver a constant force to the tourbillon. As a result, the mechanical movement boasts remarkable accuracy of ± 1 second per day.
The exceptional Cabestan Scuderia Ferrari One watch is a symbol of excellence, innovation, and striving for perfection - the values cherished by Cabestan and Ferrari.
