Ferragamo makes a smart move by combining cutting edge technology with traditional Swiss craftsmanship.
The groundbreaking Ferragamo F-80 Motion has something for everybody. This amazing timepiece is the first smartwatch to bear the Salvatore Ferragamo name. It delivers traditional F-80 style to watch aficionados who appreciate fine Swiss craftsmanship, while satisfying the needs of those who prefer state-of-the-art technology.
Powered by a special Swiss made MOMT285-1 movement, the advanced F-80 Motion combines a beautifully crafted analog display with a wide range of intelligent functions, including activity tracking, adaptive coaching, sleep pattern tracking, a smart sleep alarm and time zone synchronization. A special MMT MotionX-365® app that is available for iOS and Android devices provides ready access to the F-80 Motion’s many smartwatch functions, recording all preset activities after synchronization.
The F-80 Motion incorporates the same fashion forward styling that has made the Ferragamo F-80 line one of the best selling luxury timepieces in history. Featuring an overtly masculine 44 mm case with a richly decorated guilloche dial, luminescent indices, and a bezel secured by six contrasting screws, this fashion forward timepiece proudly takes the popular F-80 line into the next century.
Unlike most smartwatches, the F-80 Motion is appropriate for any occasion. It also has a battery life of over two years, which is almost unheard of with competitive smartwatches.
Two Stylish Options
You can choose between a stylish blue dial edition that has been equipped with a matching blue alligator print calf strap, or an all black stealth model featuring a black calf strap embellished with red topstitching. The watch also comes with a comfortable black caoutchouc strap for a more casual look. Both versions look equally fabulous for dress or casual wear.
The F-80 Motion is water resistant to an impressive 328 feet and like all Salvatore Ferragamo timepieces, carries a two-year manufacturer’s warranty. If you’re ready to move into the digital age but don’t want to abandon the good looks and superb craftsmanship that have made the Salvatore Ferragamo name famous around the world, the advanced F-80 Motion is the watch for you.
Most women would embrace this remarkable new timepiece in a heartbeat.
Salvatore Ferragamo has touched the hearts of fashion-forward women for decades. Now, their hearts will beat a little faster. The inspired design of the new 39 mm Cuore Ferragamo is one of the most beautiful women’s timepieces ever created.
With an innovative dial that replaces the traditional sub-seconds display with a beating mechanical heart at 6 o’clock, this unique complication pulsates once per second, giving the watch an air of romance and mystery.
The beating heart function, indicated by the heart’s two halves separating and then reuniting, can be activated for two minutes by pressing the crown at 3 o’clock. The time is set using an attractive heart shaped pin at two o’clock.
This spectacular two-hand configuration is adorned with an iconic silver textured Ferragamo half Gancino on the dial. The time is indicated with a delicate sub-dial at 11 o’clock, encircled with 40 sparkling diamonds on some models and a Clous de Paris decoration on others. Completing the sophisticated design is a Salvatore Ferragamo logo engraved on the bezel.
The innovative watch is powered by a precision Swiss made Soprod 913.04 quartz movement with a patented complication to enable the heartbeat animation at 6 o’clock. The Cuore Ferragamo is water resistant to 99 feet and, like all Ferragamo timepieces, comes with a two-year manufacturer’s warranty.
The Ferragamo Cuore Ferragamo Collection is available in eleven exciting editions, including versions in stainless steel, IP yellow gold, and IP rose gold. The watch can be equipped with your choice of a fitted stainless steel bracelet secured with a butterfly clasp, or a beautiful croco-print genuine calf strap with an ardillon buckle. Available strap colors include yellow, red, pink, purple, grey, and black tones that complement the Ferragamo Spring and Summer Runway Collections.
When it’s time for love, Salvatore Ferragamo always knows how to get to the heart of the matter. This spectacular timepiece is one of the most romantic things a woman can wear on her wrist. If you’re ready for your own heart to beat a little faster, contact your authorized Salvatore Ferragamo timepiece dealer immediately and ask to see the entire Ferragamo Cuore Collection.

Cozy up to the hottest colors for Fall 2015, a universally flattering range of nature-inspired hues that make saying goodbye to summer a bit easier.
Reflecting the increasing style-consciousness of today’s man, the menswear shows went beyond the usual neutrals to bring in bolder colors. In the women’s ready-to-wear collections, designers’ use of color recalled some of the biggest style moments of the 20th century, from the Art Deco glamour of the 1920s to the bohemian chic of the 1970s. It’s simple to transition into the new season by making a style statement with a watch in one of these versatile shades.
This muted pink feels vintage and at the same time totally of-the-moment, just as this 70s-inspired Versace dress would be right at home at Coachella. Instead of an in-your-face bubblegum, Cashmere Rose evokes an earthy vibe that is perfectly picked up in the textured leather band of the Versace Dylos Lady VQD010015. Its softness is the ideal counterpoint to classic Versace details like the studs marking the hours and the Greek key pattern surrounding the face.
The intensely saturated color in this Alberta Ferretti gown adds to the sumptuousness of the fabric and drape, while also bringing this 1920s-inspired silhouette into the 21st century. (If Jay Gatsby invited you to a party next week, this is what you would wear.) With a timepiece like the Ferragamo Idillio Chronograph FI3030014, you can create your own Gatsby moment. The combination of the rich, modern hue with the timeless luxury of a mother-of-pearl face and yellow gold plating makes it a modern heirloom.
This beautiful jewel tone is just right for this gem of an evening gown from Tadashi Shoji. The nude underlay emphasizes the rippling skirt, creating a whole range of shades with just one color. The rippling effect on the silver face of the Ferragamo Intreccio FIC010015 is similarly elegant. The motif echoes a structural weaving technique Salvatore Ferragamo often used, called intreccio, layering woven material in a single hue to create deep color and texture.
Shades of yellow have been standouts for several seasons, and this fall the forecast calls for this deeper yet comforting tone. This look from Zac Posen uses Oak Buff to outstanding effect, the single color playing up the textural contrast of luminous fabric and plush fur. The Versace Vanity P5Q80D999 S999 brings the same impact, with the mix of matte and polished golds in the face and bezel juxtaposed against a textured calfskin band.
Christian Dior menswear is consistently sharp-lined and sculptural, but usually sticks to shades of black and gray. This season, Dior Homme stayed true to that classic styling while adding a new neutral—the sophisticated yet earthy Marsala. This versatile shade can be incorporated into any man’s wardrobe. The Ferragamo 1898 Sport FF322 0015 is a simple way to work this color into your look, and with a canvas band it’s as functional as it is stylish.
Ready to push the color envelope a bit further? This bolder neutral—layered in a variety of textures in this look from Coach—isn’t just for camouflage. Set off against bold black, this organic shade stands out from the crowd. Paired with pops of white and a black leather band in the Fortis Flieger Cockpit 595.11.16 L.01, Dried Herb elevates the look of this modern timepiece.
Forget 50 Shades of Grey—this cool, blue-tinged gray is the only shade you’ll need for fall. Gray is the ultimate workhorse neutral in both men’s and women’s wear; you can pair it with ivory or camel, contrast it with pops of brightness, or of course deepen it with black. No matter what, you won’t go wrong. The same can be said for the Gevril Columbus Circle 2006. Like Stormy Weather, it’s handsome but straightforward, with multiple functions and luminous hands for maximum utility.
If you’re ready to take the plunge into some serious color, a statement piece in this vibrant yet understated bright is the way to do it. You can go major, like in this trendy coat from Ami, but you can also take a more subtle approach. A pop of color—like when your cuff reveals the Haurex Caimano N1354UNO—shows that you can have fun with fashion while still being appropriate for the office. With a rubber band and water resistance, this watch is perfect for that winter beach getaway, too.
The best news yet? Fall’s hot colors work for either sex, so there are no limits to how you can style them. And starting off with an exceptional accessory is the ideal way to work one of these new hues into your wardrobe.
A great cocktail watch is a piece of jewelry that should be at once classy and carefree; it should express both whimsy and sophisticated charm, and it should be unmistakably high society – in other words, everything that defines the great fashion house of Ferragamo.
The new Gancino Bracelet collection by Ferragamo is a series of cocktail watches that paints a dreamy picture of the Italian high-life, be it a summer party in a Medici garden or a black-tie evening affair in a palazzo along the banks of the Arno River.
The narrative begins with a dial arrangement of minimal detailing, a refined composition of delicate stick hands and small round indices at the quarters. The Ferragamo wordmark floats below 12 o’clock and the diminutive words “Swiss Made” indicate the watch’s origins. Such simplicity is, of course, intentional, and means not to distract from the beauty of the case and the exceptional bracelet.
There are two different styles of dial to revel in: a sunray pattern (in black or brown), or a rich enamel (in black, brown, orange or fuchsia). Those with the sunray pattern shimmer and change tone and texture in reflected light, and Ferragamo pairs these with its new tortoiseshell acetate bangles with inlays in one of three colors: grey, tobacco or fuchsia. The enamel dials, on the other hand, are rich, deep and uniform in color. Each enamel-dial model has a matching calf-leather bangle.
The case of the watch is in the shape of Ferragamo’s iconic emblem – the gancino – and comes in stainless steel or steel coated with gold IP. The case is either a petite 25.5 mm or an ultra-petite 20 mm in diameter, not including the gancino’s perpendicular ornament.
The simplistic beauty of the gancino requires no additional embellishment, although a profile view of the watch reveals further dimensionality in the case composition. The watch is entirely polished except for the caseback, which has a brushed finish, and every version of the Gancino Bracelet contains a Swiss made Ronda 751 quartz movement and features a scratch-resistant, anti-reflective sapphire crystal.
In its final act, the Gancino Bracelet reveals the design of its two-part bracelet: the first section is a bangle (in leather or tortoiseshell acetate) that transitions seamlessly into the second section, a stainless steel or gold IP link bracelet that locks by way of a small clasp (rather than a traditional prong buckle or folding clasp), the result of which is a fit more akin to a bracelet than a watch. The effect of these multifaceted bracelets raises the Gancino Bracelet into a category of glamor all on its own.
Whether your intent is to sip Prosecco in a Tuscan piazza, or simply to elevate your favorite weekend ensemble, the Ferragamo Gancino Bracelet is an undeniably chic addition to your watch wardrobe – in fact, it may become the only watch you wear.

This oversize 48 mm monster features a beautiful matt-finished dial with bold Arabic lettering and two well-placed chronograph sub-dials.
