    Are they quartz? The photos of the movement on the kickstarter look like automatic movements.

    Sometimes, even Rolex watches need to take a break.

    Which Ferrari ones did you buy? Hublot? Or Girard Perregaux?

    But honestly I didn't understand the Kickstarter. But now I see that it made buyers want to be closer to MR. Piola. And im sure its over 500 watches sold in a short time span. Brilliant

    Yes, it allows fans to be part of a product since even before its launched and to get that product at great value and with gifts.

    For the brand it allows to presale pieces and place larger orders to the manufacture, decrease costs per unit and offer the watch at a more affordable price. This was Giorgio’s ultimate goal: To offer a high quality, racing-inspired Swiss watch to all racing fans.

    Yes, a Panerai, quite old but still a lovely watch. I have a couple of the actual Ferrari range too, they all sit in my watch box these days! I must start swapping them around and wearing them
