Created in Collaboration with Ing. Giotto Bizzarrini & Car Collector Nick Mason – featuring original 250 GTO Material in the Watch Case

Inspired by the world’s most legendary sports car: the iconic 250 GTO launched in 1962, watch manufacture SCALFARO created the limited GTO 1962 BIZZARRINI EDITION of mechanical Swiss timepieces featuring original material from one of the most prominent GTO cars – the ex-Ecurie Francorchamps chassis no. 3757GT. The design and creation of this truly special edition was realized in close collaboration with “L’Ingegnere” Giotto Bizzarrini who was the leading engineer in the GTO’s development over 50 years ago as well as Pink Floyd drummer and car collector Nick Mason who supplied genuine parts of his GTO for this edition. These parts were subsequently integrated into the watch cases, so that each of the numbered edition watches not only features numerous design elements from the GTO, but also contains the authentic DNA of this sports car icon and thus a direct link to its fascinating history. The signature of Giotto Bizzarrini adorns the face of each chronograph and underlines the exclusivity of this edition limited to 250 pieces. Further details include: 42mm case diameter, Scalfaro Ceramic DNA Intarsia, finely decorated Swiss mechanical Manufacture La Joux-Perret chronograph movement, off-shape bezel, sapphire crystal, see-through case back, choice of black natural rubber strap incl. cylinder ignition pattern of the Colombo V12 engine or Horween shell cordovan strap, elegant folding buckle, water-resistant to 100m (330ft).

Each SCALFARO GTO 1962 BIZZARRINI EDITION watch is individually numbered and incl. an exclusive wooden box.

Conceived with great attention to detail, radiating with quality in every aspect from the sophisticated construction of its watch case with its refined surface finishing and the elaborate mechanism of its Swiss automatic manufacture movement, each timepiece of this edition is made to last and reflects the passion that lead to the creation of the legendary GTO sports car.

Manufactured in a rare artisanal process combining traditional crafts as well as modern technology, each timepiece is a unique work of art preserving the DNA of the iconic GTO.
