You Can Now Buy A Watch Made From Scrapped Supercars

Are you feeling guilty, trying to balance your need of recycling to save the world while still lusting after gas-guzzling, high-speed sports cars? Now you can do both. Sort of.

A watch company based in Australia has a limited run of timepieces partially made with scrapped parts from crashed supercars.

Fuoriserie offers the Rosso Red, featuring dials made from wrecked doors of a Ferrari 348 TB, and the Storm Black, the dials of which have been cut from the hood of an Aston Martin Rapide destined for landfill. Both watches measure 42mm and are powered by a Japanese-made Miyota 203A quartz movement. Each watch is numbered and limited to a run of just 150.

Because of the source materials, the watchmaker states that “all of our watches are visibly unique, tell their own story and feature a design that respects the car they came from.” We don’t know about that, but at $450 AUD – around $310 USD – it’s a reasonably priced way to get close to the car of your dreams.

They look great! Today, as a rule, it is difficult to imagine a modern person without a wristwatch. My husband usually buys a watch here https://chrisaire.com/collections/aire-capitol-hill . They are distinguished by a wide range, uniqueness and durability, which is very important for every man

Bill Mayer – I tried to vote up your pic of Gabriela but fell foul of the dreaded sausage fingers!

She’s sweet, and a Nardi wheel would be ideal.

They are quartz? Not so vintage internals to say the least. A good Hamilton automatic for about the same price feels more vintage IMHO.

Point taken James…….It’s truly a matter of priorities. I’ll buy a $50 Timex and spend the rest on a Nardi wheel for my Alfa Romeo.

Turtlenecks by Gio?????? Ounch !!!

My Alfa is a run of the mill S 4 Spider with a few minor tweaks. Her name is Gabriela and on a good road she is a charmer.

This is just ridiculous. How ’bout shirts woven from the hair of F1 drivers?

Very cool (and, yes, surprisingly affordable), but I’m partial to the conceptually similar REC watches… https://www.recwatches.com/
