There are a lot of time pieces on the market that pay tribute to supercar companies and racing roots to include the Scuderia Ferrari line from Movado. This is first time that we have come across a company that is actually using car parts from a real Ferrari in their face design. British watch designer Christopher Ward has created a limited-edition watched appropriately named the C70 3527 GT. The nomenclature 3527 is a nod to the chassis number of the seventh Ferrari 250 GTO from which the designer uses pieces of the exterior paneling to make the face of the watch.
The Christopher Ward C70 3527 GT Chronometer uses a museum-grade sapphire crystal and traditional Ferrari red coloring. The exterior panel of the Ferrari 250 GTO used in the making of the watch can be seen on both sides of the time piece. Cut by Swiss metal-cutting experts, the exterior panel done in Rossa Corsa red shows through the number six on the back of the timepiece. Rossa Corsa stitching is also present on the leather band of the watch.
There are 100 of these timepieces being made at a price of $2,950, and a limit of one timepiece per individual buyer.
Even though the German tuning program DMC may be best known for their work on Lamborghini Adventador projects, they have proven once again that they are capable of handling any Italian supercar.
DMC originally rose to fame by being the first to customize the Aventador with their Molto Veloce kit, and now they are looking to do the same by offering a complete re-design for the Ferrari F430. The project is called Carbonio, and will include a hefty dose of carbon fiber to dress up the F430, bringing the overall design closer to the styling used on the Scuderia.
As this project is far from complete, the pictures released by DMC are only a tease of what to expect. From these photos we can draw clues, such as the entire front end being wrapped in carbon fiber including the front lip that has been named “the Sword.” No word yet on when the project will be complete or what else will be done. Regardless of what comes next, DMC has definitely chosen the perfect car for this edition and we look forward to what comes next.
