Introduced in 2014, this special edition timepiece pays tribute to racing legend John Surtees. This limited series wristwatch was designed in close collaboration with JOHN SURTEES who supplied genuine historic parts from his 1960 MV Agusta 500ccm championship bike as well as his 1964 Ferrari 158 championship F1 car. The parts have been sympathetically integrated into the watch cases.
The sapphire crystal carries the JOHN SURTEES signature as well as the helmet logo of the HENRY SURTEES FOUNDATION. Part of the proceeds from this edition will be donated to the foundation set up by John Surtees following the tragic death of his son Henry whilst competing in Formula 2 race in 2009 aged just 18 years old.
The 38mm case diameter case includes coloured SCALFARO Ceramic DNA Intarsia as well as original material of John Surtees’ 1960 MV Agusta and 1964 Ferrari 158, off-shape bezel, sapphire crystal, see-through case back including overview of JOHN SURTEES‘ championship years, black Horween shell cordovan strap, elegant folding buckle, water-resistant to 50m (165ft). The watch houses a finely decorated Swiss mechanical movement with engraved rotor.
Limited to 300 pieces, the Scalfaro John Surtees Edition watch has a retail price of GBP 3.295/ EURO 4.350.
