These Limited Edition Watches Are Made From Salvaged Supercars
The dials of these racy timepieces are constructed from Ferrari and Aston Martin parts.
If you don’t want to spend exorbitant amounts on car/watch crossover accessories like this $20,000-plus Hublot Ferrari GT, Australia’s Fuoriserie is selling limited-edition watches crafted from real pieces of salvaged supercars for about the price of a decent G-Shock.
There are two models available. The “Rosso Red” edition features a dial made the doors of a 1993 Ferrari TB with a white logo, indexes and mini track. The “Storm Black” edition’s dial comes from the hood of a 2011 Aston Martin Rapide and gets a gray logo, indexes and mini track. Because every piece of dial material is different, each watch is truly one of a kind.
As Hypebeast notes, both are presented in a stylish 42mm case and domed scratch-resistant K1 glass that are rated for water resistance of up to 30 meters. Brass hour and minute hour hands contrast with the aluminum second hands, which are propelled by a Japanese Miyota 203A Quartz movement.
The steering wheel-inspired strap is made from genuine nubuck leather, and the buckle is color-matched to the dial. Fuoriserie Co is only making 300 of these high-octane timepieces (150 of each edition), so you’ll need to act quickly to get one for only about $310 online.
