Timing is everything. When we started with the design of this watch, function had to be the main feature. Clear dials with a stopwatch and new to this range the Monza Blue Super Luminova. Finished off with sapphire glass, it takes the new Monza to the next level.
Opened in September 1922, Monza was pre-dated only by Brooklands and Indianapolis among the permanent paved facilities; it stirs emotions unlike any other of the great pantheons of motorized combat. The traditional high-speed blast between the trees and the rich history that oozes from every nook and cranny within the Royal Villa parkland on the outskirts of Milan create a visceral assault on the senses.
The circuit has undergone subtle changes during its illustrious history but, crucially, it retains its original charisma. Everyone who’s walked through its gates will attest to a feeling that’s difficult to articulate. You just feel it.
Monza’s inaugural race, the Italian Grand Prix no less, took place in September 1922, a week after the ceremonial opening. Since then, the sport’s greatest names have all tasted victory on this hallowed ground: Tazio Nuvolari, Antonio, and Alberto Ascari, Juan Manuel Fangio, Stirling Moss, Jackie Stewart, Jim Clark, Ayrton Senna – all the way up to Michael Schumacher and Lewis Hamilton.
There is a mystical and mesmerizing allure to Monza. And as long as people race cars and bikes around its historic sweeps, that’ll never change.
