Where does a designer get their inspiration from? Certainly, one can find an almost infinite number of answers to this question. However, in the case of Tonino Lamborghini, the answer is crystal clear: the watch brand is inspired by the stylistic features taken from the engines’ world, maintaining the Lamborghini DNA and legacy still visible, not only in the name of the mastermind behind the brand.
After launching in 2019 a first timepieces line conceived and produced in-house and designed by the company’s CEO and Vicepresident Ferruccio Lamborghini, this spring 2022 will see the unveiling of a new collection of watches produced in Switzerland with plenty of Italian flair and passion, staying true to their motorsport and stylish heritage from the hands to the case.
Today’s flagship model from the SS22 collection is the NOVEMILLIMETRI, an automatic timepiece characterized by manufacturing research disruptive design and a strong identity thanks to its titanium components, Swiss movements, and racing elements. As the name suggests, these models feature 9mm thick cases, making Tonino Lamborghini officially enter the ultra-slim watches sector.
“Watches are among my favourite accessories, firstly because their movement is reminiscent of my family’s mechanical heritage, and secondly because creating designs in watchmaking has been a great passion of mine since the brand was founded!” says Ferruccio Lamborghini, CEO and former Italian Moto2 champion, who took over his father Tonino’s business in 2018. “Our watches are dedicated to the lovers of four and two wheels.”
NOVEMILLIMETRI combines technology and design, sportiness and elegance, resourcefulness and luxury with a refined design suitable for any occasion, able to guarantee maximum comfort every day. Key characteristics include Swiss automatic Sellita SW 200-1 with date at 6 o’clock, 28,000 vibrations per hour, 26 jewels, 38-hour power reserve, ultralight titanium hexagonal case and embossed lacquered “Tonino Lamborghini” signature on the dial.
Designed in Italy and manufactured in Switzerland, the collection clearly benefits from high-quality materials, bold design and new technology merging elegance and know-how.
The NOVEMILLIMETRI model is available in the following versions:
As an alternative to the leather strap, each case can also be chosen with a titanium bracelet.
