Owned a Ferrari car, I believe that a dream of is many people, but to buy Ferrari in Taiwan is much difficult than in many forign countries, in addition to low national income, the high tariff lead to high prices is the main factor. Thus if there is a Ferrari car on road in Taiwan, will soon become the focus of all attention. As Ferrari has high degree of popularity, in 1994 Girard Perregaux has cooperated with FERRARI and produced various models, but in recent years, as mechanical watch market booming, thus Ferrari end this more than ten years partnership, embarked on the road of homemade watch brand. Ferrari selected to cooperate with Richemomt Group, tailored appearance and provide movement skilled by Panerai, couple with good marketing strategies, making Ferrari once was released caused public attention.

The appearance of Ferrari is similar to Panerai Luminor's, but Ferrari's case is gentle and can not see sharp lines. From the case side can see the oval-shaped curve, the same purpose with sleek lines of Ferrari car, the crown and chronograph button is very similar to the Ferrari's rear light. Viewed from the side, just like Ferrari's iceberg rear. Screw-in crown and chronograph button, ensure the case waterproof to 100m. And the most special design is the screw-in crown, I think most of watch fans have the experience of screw-in crown, most the crown not so easy to use. But Ferrari's screw-in crown designed specially, just push the yellow dot side of the crown in a certain direction, you can easily lock the crown, not need to repeatedly rotating the crown to find the thread, this also can be regard as a new innovative masterpiece.

Dial and Hands

Granturismo and Scuderia this two series are belong to Ferrari, the difference is the dial design, Granturismo series adopted silver Yamaha logo on 12 o'clock position, while Scuderia adopted the traditional black horse yellow background shield-shaped logo. This Granturismo Chronograph dial adopted another representative color of Ferrari - bright yellow as the background of dial, added with second subdial and 30-minute subdial, the color scheme is very dazzling. The design concept of the two subdials comes from the dashboard of Ferrari car, looking carefully of the subdials, we can see the inner circle pattern, the texture improved significantly. Tachymeter marked on the outer ring of the dial, though common people hardly use this function, but as this model name of Ferrari naturally can not lack of this function.

Compared with other transparent case back of most of Paneari watches, Ferrari watches are used solid case back. Because viewed from the practical point, the waterproof performance of solid case back is better than transparent one, though cannot appreciate the operation of movement, but most of the watch fans will not refuse the charm of Ferrari for this design. This watch equipped with PANERAI OP XII movement, which was updated from ETA-7750, has 60-second, 30-minute chronograph function, and received COSC certificate, precision performance and chronograph function better show Ferrari's brand features.
