A Modern Italian Timepiece that a Roman Emperor Could Appreciate
When talented Italian designer Riccardo Rossi decided to create a line of fine timepieces that exemplified Italian style, it was the Roman Empire he had in mind. There is nothing contemporary about Rossi’s unique designs. These are watches a Roman Emperor could love.
The aggressive, innovative design of the Italia Collection was inspired by emperors and gladiators and pays homage to the glory that was Rome. Each watch in the collection takes an element of ancient Roman history and uses it to create a stunningly original timepiece that can’t be ignored.
Italico Coliseum Collection
The bold Italico Coliseum model uses the iconic arc shapes of the ancient monument to create a uniquely patterned bezel and top ring. Bold Roman numerals at 12, 3, 6 and 9 o’clock encircle hour and minute hands that have the same proportions as classic Roman swords. The dial itself has the look of fine marble and gives the watch a regal look that an emperor would love.
The Gladiatore model finds its inspiration in the strength and power of the gladiators who fought in the Roman Coliseum. A distinctive rose gold grid on the crystal of this unique watch reminds us of the cells below the Coliseum where gladiators were held prior to their epic battles.
The aggressive styling on the Imperatore model reminds us of the Roman emperors themselves. The massive rectangular stainless steel case is fastened by four stainless steel screws for a distinctly masculine appearance. This watch continues the theme of ancient Rome with sword shaped hour and minute hands and a dial inspired by fine marble.

Although Italico watches are inspired by ancient history, there is nothing old about how they are made. Each watch is powered by a precision Swiss made quartz movement that is designed to provide years of reliable service. These fine timepieces feature precision screw down case backs, durable mineral glass crystals and are water resistant to 5 atmospheres.
Italian style doesn’t automatically mean Ferraris and designer clothing. Italian history goes back a lot longer than that. If you’d like to celebrate the glories of ancient Rome, start wearing a bit of history on your wrist.
