Salvatore Ferragamo Italia
The Salvatore Ferragamo name is legendary in the world of fashion. This celebrated fashion label, based in Florence, Italy, has become the definition of style and elegance for generations of the rich and famous. With luxurious boutiques in many of the world’s most desirable destinations and global recognition from some of the world’s most loyal fans, the brand is a testament to the strong values established by its gifted founder, Salvatore Ferragamo. The celebrated designer’s unrivaled skill and craftsmanship as a shoe designer set the standard for all future Ferragamo creations, including a fabulous selection of fine Ferragamo watches.
The Salvatore Ferragamo name has become synonymous with originality and quality. The master’s inspired designs have influenced modern shoemaking forever, with innovations such as the cork wedge, the invisible sandal and the caged heel. This same innovative thinking is now influencing a new generation of Ferragamo watches.
Shoemaker to the Stars
Salvatore Ferragamo emigrated from Italy to California in the early 1900s and built his reputation as a master shoemaker, designing made-to-measure shoes for movie stars in a burgeoning industry. Ferragamo’s first contract was with the American Film Company, designing boots for Westerns and the stars of the day: names such as Douglas Fairbanks, Mary Pickford and Rudolph Valentino.
Before long, the who’s who of Hollywood began approaching Ferragamo to create custom-made shoes, and thus the moniker “shoemaker to the stars” was born. The relationships Ferragamo forged with the passionate and imaginative artists of the day provided him with endless inspiration throughout his life.
In 1927, Salvatore returned to Italy where the eponymous company name “Ferragamo” originated. In 1938 Ferragamo set up shop in Florence’s sumptuous Palazzo Spini Feroni, which has remained the company’s headquarters to this day.
The Ferragamo atelier became a popular destination for the rich and famous, who arrived in droves to order custom-made shoes directly from the shoemaking virtuoso. During the 1950s, Ferragamo met personally with many of the most legendary actresses of the day, including Lauren Bacall, Greta Garbo, Ava Gardner, Audrey Hepburn and Sophia Loren. No request was too outlandish or extravagant for Ferragamo, who did everything possible to cater to the impulses of his celebrity fans.
When Salvatore Ferragamo died in 1960, control of the family business remained with his wife Wanda and their six children, who all shared their father’s commitment to delivering unsurpassed quality and craftsmanship. With strong values as a foundation and their collective business expertise, the Ferragamo family grew the brand into a luxury powerhouse with a comprehensive product line and a global distribution network. Ferragamo shoes, clothing and accessories are now readily available in major cities and travel destinations around the world.
Enduring Craftsmanship For a New Generation
Massimiliano Giornetti is the current creative force behind the Ferragamo name. The talented designer spent ten years with the company working his way up in menswear before being named Creative Director in 2010. Massimiliano now oversees both the men’s and women’s collections and is actively involved in the design of Ferragamo’s growing collection of fine timepieces.
A native of Tuscany, Massimiliano studied in Florence, the home of Ferragamo and the heart of artisanal Italy. Massimiliano’s work captures the unpretentious, historically rooted Florentine style, which was also central to the creative inspirations of Salvatore Ferragamo.
Massimiliano is committed to bridging the past and the present. While building a well-deserved reputation for his innovative contemporary styles, his feet are firmly planted in tradition. For Massimiliano, fashion is all about understated elegance, which he often equates with the fashion sensibilities of the 1930s. These casual, but impeccably tailored styles evoke the glamor and romance he remembers growing up in the fashionably chic Italy of the seventies.
Massimiliano’s work, like that of Salvatore Ferragamo himself, is timeless. This intrinsic connection to the master’s stylistic sensibilities has brought him tremendous support within the Ferragamo family. Massimiliano is committed to personal authenticity and heritage, which he brings to life every day in brilliant colors and designs that could only come from the house of Ferragamo.
Ferragamo Watch Collections
Ferragamo introduced its first timepiece in 2007. Each new watch collection became an extension of the brand’s unrelenting commitment to quality and craftsmanship. As the Ferragamo watch line grew, so did its reputation. Today, it’s not just trendsetters and fashionistas who sing the praises of these exquisitely crafted works of art. Watch aficionados are equally impressed by the understated elegance, old world craftsmanship, and tremendous value that these exceptional timepieces represent.
“Ferragamo watches are consistent with the values and image of the brand. They exude sophisticated elegance with a modern flair,” says Paul Ziff, President of Ferragamo Timepieces, U.S. and Caribbean. Ferragamo watches are Swiss made and come with a four-year manufacturer’s warranty, well above the industry standard. The unsurpassed quality, sophisticated styling, and reputation of the Ferragamo brand make a Ferragamo watch a tremendous value in today’s competitive marketplace. With fourteen exciting collections to choose from, there is a Ferragamo timepiece for every occasion and every personality.
The iconic F-80, initially introduced to celebrate Ferragamo’s 80th anniversary, is one of the most popular and enduring timepieces ever created by the master craftsmen at Salvatore Ferragamo. The F-80 Collection has grown to include chronographs, pilot’s watches, and GMT models. The collection now includes six brand new models for 2014. Each of these high-tech 44 mm men’s chronographs features a lightweight titanium case with an innovative titanium and ceramic top ring inscribed with a tachymeter scale. The unique textured dial includes three well-placed sub-dials that make it easy to time virtually any event. Two stainless steel pushers on either side of the winding crown control these versatile totalizers. This big, bold, brute of a watch is available with titanium or IP gold accents and can be equipped with your choice of a comfortable rubber strap or a titanium and ceramic bracelet.
These distinctive 37 mm watches take their name from a stylized buckle shaped case that was derived from the iconic Ferragamo Gancino. This Gancino shape has been refined to become a beautiful cloche shaped buckle that mimics the form of Ferragamo Buckle Collection eyewear. The bezel is even available in tortoiseshell acetate, to match the frames of the glasses. The elegant two-hand configuration features an asymmetrical dial in champagne, silver, dark brown or black with intricate guilloché finishing and four genuine diamonds as indices. The winding crown has been moved to the 12 o’clock position at the top of the buckle shaped stainless steel case for dramatic effect, and the unique asymmetrical lugs have been fitted with a premium vegetable-tanned calfskin strap, which comes in six different variations, including tobacco, beige, orange, brown, fuchsia and black; all with contrasting top-stitching.
The Ferragamo 1898 Collection commemorates the year Salvatore Ferragamo was born. These sophisticated designs celebrate the classic elegance and timelessness that the Ferragamo name has become famous for. A variety of new models join the 1898 Collection for 2014. A handsome 43 mm 1898 Diver features a colorful aluminum unidirectional rotating bezel inscribed with a 60-minute scale. This ruggedly masculine three-hand configuration is powered by a precision Swiss made quartz movement and is water resistant to an impressive 660 feet. The easy-to-read dial includes a convenient date window at 3 o’clock and the Ferragamo logo at 12 o’clock.
Gancino Soirée Collection
There are three colorful new additions to the popular Ferragamo Gancino Soirée Collection for 2014. These diminutive 24 mm creations are distinguished by their fashionable asymmetrical lugs and stylized indices. Raised metal indices mark each hour on the bottom half of the dial, while a single marker at the top indicates 12 o’clock. The stainless steel case has a lustrous IP gold finish and a colorful patent leather strap has been fitted that matches the available bright yellow, orange or fuchsia dial. All of these delightful additions to the Soirée line provide a perfect way to accessorize the colorful new Spring fashions for 2014.
The Ferragamo Idillio collection, initially introduced in 2012, has been described by some as poetry in motion. Featuring one of the most beautiful dials ever created, these exquisite timepieces instantly became “must have” accessories for fashionistas everywhere. For 2014, Ferragamo adds a spectacular chronograph to the iconic Idillio line. The 42 mm chronograph, like the original Idillio models, features a beautiful mother of pearl dial and precious black onyx cabochons that adorn both the crown and lugs. The easy-to-read dial features three well-placed totalizers and a date window at 4 o’clock. A tachymeter scale is circumscribed around the edge of the chapter ring. These new Idillio chronographs are powered by a precision Swiss made quartz movement and can be equipped with a beautiful turquoise, fuchsia, light blue, or white croco print leather strap.

Gancino Déco Collection
This refined 39 mm design gives the iconic Ferragamo Gancino theme a distinct art déco flair. This exquisitely detailed women’s watch exudes Ferragamo style and sophistication. The fashionable two-hand configuration is powered by a precision Swiss made quartz movement and features a dial with 32 brilliant diamonds as indices. The beautifully textured mother-of-pearl dial is enhanced by a chapter ring with intricate guilloché finishing. The collection takes its name from the two iconic Gancino symbols flanking each lug on the luxurious patent leather strap. Six different variations of this exciting style are available, making it easy to add a déco vibe to just about any outfit.
Salvatore Ferragamo continues to expand its superb mechanically powered Lungarno Collection with three new models for 2014. These exciting new chronographs have the same sporty styling that characterized the original Lungarno models, with the addition of two convenient chronograph totalizers for timing events. The 44 mm brushed stainless steel case has a distinctive retro inspired look, with a choice of black or silver dials with a tachymeter scale on the chapter ring and a convenient date window at 12 o’clock. The handsome watch can be equipped with a luxurious black or blue calf strap with contrasting leather inserts. Alternately, a beautiful stainless steel bracelet is also available.

Lyrical and ladylike, the distinctive Lirica Collection represents everything the Ferragamo brand has become famous for. This diminutive 32 mm timepiece is simply spectacular. A diamond studded Ferragamo Gancino takes center stage on an elegant mother-of-pearl dial. Twelve raised metal indices complete this sophisticated two-hand configuration. A precision Swiss made quartz movement powers the brilliantly executed collection, which is available in six different variations. The Lirica has been fitted with a quilted matelassé leather strap that is available in fashion forward hues that complement the mother of pearl dial.
Few things are more iconic that the familiar Ferragamo Gancino. The symbolic shape appears throughout the Ferragamo line and figures prominently in the design of Ferragamo watches. The aptly named Gancino Collection creates the entire case using the symbol and then repeats it again on the distinctive patterned dial. For 2014, Ferragamo designers have added three spectacular new models to this iconic Collection. Each of these elegant 30 mm watches features a mother of pearl dial and saffiano leather strap. This special leather treatment makes the strap virtually scratch resistant and easy to clean. With its distinctive asymmetrical design and vibrant grey, bronze, or purple color palette, these striking new Gancino models are the perfect complement to today’s latest styles.
Grande Maison Collection
Salvatore Ferragamo created the Grande Maison Collection to commemorate the master shoemaker’s famous “Carmen” shoe. Designed for movie star Carmen Miranda, this shoe featured a unique heel that was entirely covered in tiny golden mirrors. Grande Maison timepieces feature a spectacular mosaic pattern dial created out of mother of pearl or exotic lapis lazuli that mimics the heel of the famous 1936 Carmen shoe. The inspired design has proved so popular that Ferragamo is adding new models featuring 2014’s latest fashion colors. These new additions to the Grande Maison line feature the same elegant three-hand configuration and sophisticated Gancino shaped case as the original Grande Maison watches.
As its name suggests, the Vega collection is one of the brightest stars in the Ferragamo lineup. The iconic Ferragamo Gancino has been subtly incorporated into the design of the dial with its unmistakable sunray guilloche pattern. New men’s and women’s models for 2014 feature elegant two-tone cases that contrast IP gold with stainless steel. Timepieces are distinguished by size, with a 38 mm model for him and a 32 mm size for her. These new Vegas are designed with couples in mind and are a perfect way to celebrate unity and mutual good taste. Both three-hand configurations are almost identical, except for the difference in size. A precision Swiss made quartz movement that has been engineered to provide years of reliable service powers this stellar design.

Gancino Sparkling Collection
The glamorous Gancino Sparkling Collection showcases all the attributes that have made the Ferragamo name synonymous with quality, originality, and impeccable good taste. These playfully creative women’s watches feature a rotating top ring encrusted with up to 25 precious Topaz stones. An additional larger Topaz stone, mounted as a charm at 4 o’clock, provides a sparkling counterpoint to this unique bezel. An intricate Guilloche dial features the Ferragamo Gancino in the center, along with the familiar Ferragamo logo at twelve o’clock. New models for 2014 offer a choice of an elegant IP gold bracelet or colorful violet or brown lizard print calf straps.
Gancino Bracelet Collection
Gancino Bracelet Collection, which made its debut at Baselworld in 2013, showcases an extremely feminine design featuring a small 22.5 mm Gancino-shaped case with an integrated polished bangle bracelet. The overall effect is stunning, making this diminutive, refined timepiece the perfect cocktail watch for evening occasions, as well as a fashionable jewelry watch during the day. New for 2014 are several fashionable finishes, including IP rose gold, yellow gold, and stainless steel. A beautiful silver or pink soleil finish dial features applied stud indices that are perfectly proportioned to complement the classic two-hand configuration. The elegant bangle style bracelet is joined together with a delicate jewelry buckle, for a unified, smooth appearance.
The refined Minuetto Collection, initially introduced at Baselworld 2013, pays homage to the world of dance. Minuetto is the Italian word for minuet, which is a perfect description of the continuous interplay between the unique rotating Gancino at the center of the dial and the watch’s moving hands. This 36 mm two-hand configuration is available in a variety of styles including versions with mother-of-pearl or circular guilloche patterned dials. On selected models, the rotating Gancino at the center of the dial has been encrusted with 32 sparkling diamonds. This sensational women’s watch can be equipped with an IP gold or stainless steel bracelet. If you prefer, it can also be fitted with a beautiful saffiano leather strap. All Minuetto watches are powered by a Swiss made Ronda 762 quartz movement.

What is the Gancino?
The Gancino is the internationally recognized symbol of Ferragamo. It appears throughout the Ferragamo collection and plays a prominent role in the design of Ferragamo timepieces. Gancino is an Italian word roughly meaning “small hook for hanging.” The origin of the symbol in relation to Ferragamo remains uncertain, but legend has it that the symbol was inspired by the gate to Palazzo Spini Feroni, the medieval building that houses the Ferragamo atelier in Florence. However it came to be, the iconic shape is an everlasting symbol of Ferragamo style and quality.
