Porsche 70th Anniversary

Ferro & Company porsche 356 watch collection
70 years ago, a legend was born and stole the soul of mankind; made driving delightful and stayed in our hearts for decades. 70 years later, we are still in love and cherish its beauty. And for this, we, at Ferro & Company want to treasure this historic automobile and share our love and enthusiasm by designing and creating a watch inspired by this iconic machine. 
Ferro & Co. 356 Collection inspired by Porsche 356
The Porsche 356 was first produced by Austrian company Porsche Konstruktionen GesmbH (1948–1949), and then by German company Dr. Ing. h. c. F. Porsche GmbH (1950–1965). It was Porsche's first production automobile.
The 356 is a lightweight and nimble-handling, rear-engine, rear-wheel drive, two-door available both in hardtop coupé and open configurations. Engineering innovations continued during the years of manufacture, contributing to its motorsports success and popularity. Production started in 1948 at Gmünd, Austria, where approximately 50 cars were built. In 1950 the factory relocated to Zuffenhausen, Germany, and general production of the 356 continued until April 1965, well after the replacement model 
911 made its autumn 1963 debut. Of the 76,000 originally produced, approximately half survive.

The “356” watch collection will be one of the top of the line watches yet to be offered by Ferro & Company. Limited to 200 pcs (100 pcs single hand and 100 pcs double hand), the Swiss Made watches will come with a hand wound Swiss made ETA 6498 caliber movement with custom decorations and built with 43 mm polished high-grade stainless steel with a display back case showcasing the decorated movement. The watches will come with scratch resistant sapphire crystal with anti reflective coating as well as perforated racing style leather straps. Event though the watches are designed for drivers, they are water resistant to 50 meters. 

The unique design and craftsmanship of the “356” collection is synonymous with the iconic car. The dual layered complex dial resembles the tachometer while the polished case and bezel bear a resemblance of the chrome ring around the gauges.

Recognising world-wide love and enthusiasm for vintage cars, Ferro & Company is offering this timepiece collection at a private pre-sale event which will be offered starting $549. Future retail price will be $899 and up. 

 

You can choose the serial numbers and styles / colours available (single or double hand in silver, black, green or red case colours).

The timepiece comes in a luxurious shiny black box including a 2 Year International Warranty.

 

The Pre-Sale event will end by September 15th, and production will begin in October. Ferro & Company aims to ship the watches by late November of 2018.
