Viceroy 47821-97 Fernando Alonso 3-Hand Date Watch


by Adrian Herscovici  

Engineered for Success

Viceroy WatchesAs a child, Fernando Alonso was a driving prodigy. At the tender age of three, his father recognized his son’s passion for racing and by the time he was seven years old, Alonso was dominating the local junior kart leagues. By age 12 Alonso had the support of IAME, a leading kart engine producer. In 1994 he won the Junior Spanish Championship and in 1996 he became the World Junior Karting champion. Alonso graduated to F1 in 2001 and in 2005 he became the youngest person to win the Formula One World Drivers’ Championship at age 24.

Alonso’s achievements are a result of his passion and commitment to his craft. The Fernando Alonso watch collection by Viceroy contains watches designed to embody these traits of Alonso’s life to date – inspired, youthful and successful – and one example is the model with reference number 47821-97, a watch that exudes the triumphant spirit associated with Alonso.

Like other watches in the current collection, the design is fresh and energetic, with a sizeable 46 mm case made of stainless steel. This version is coated with rose gold IP and, unlike the many chronographs in the collection, is three-handed; the simplicity and color give it a look that is poised and distinguished. In keeping with the current collection, the bezel is made of aluminum and the caseback is solid stainless steel. Mineral crystal protects the watch from the front and contributes to 164 feet of water resistance, which helps protect the dependable quartz movement inside.

The combination of rose gold and black on a sport watch of this size is exceptionally masculine, and aside from some choice white accents on the dial, the smart color scheme is maintained from top to bottom. On the dial, a solid black central base is surrounded by embossed concentric rings, over which rose gold IP hour markers are applied. The hands are also rose gold IP along with the date window frame and the Fernando Alonso checkered flag logo.

The numbers on the date wheel, as well as the minute markers at each hour index are printed in white and contrast well; the white also unites the snowy appearance of the luminous coating on the hour and minute hands. A fitted black silicone strap continues the color scheme with its bronze-tinted stitching that matches well with rose gold. The steel prong buckle is also coated with rose gold IP.

A circular band motif, represented on the dial by the aforementioned concentric rings, also extends to other parts of the watch. A profile view of the bezel reveals a three-tiered ring; the same look continues on the crown as well as the strap, which has embossed rings through its center.

Viceroy 47823-57 Fernando Alonso Chronograph


by Adrian Herscovici  

Built for Champions

Viceroy WatchesFans of two-time Formula 1 world champion Fernando Alonso are familiar with the driver’s ability on international Grand Prix circuits. The charismatic Alonso is also popular off-track, which made his appointment as ambassador for Spanish brand Viceroy in 2008 a natural alliance – an affable young champion for a rising, progressive brand.

Alonso’s position atop the racing stratosphere remains the inspiration for Viceroy’s Fernando Alonso watch collection, the latest of which capture the essence of sport-casual by using streamlined combinations of materials and designs to reflect the impassioned, cutting-edge nature of racing sport.

The chronograph model with reference number 47823-57 features a large polished 46 mm stainless steel case and a lightweight aluminum bezel with a gray-black hue. Novel looking chronograph pushers flank the crown; the black piston-head embellishment on each pusher further amplifies the motor-centricity of the watch and brings the pistons to life, and the look extends to the crown, too. Steel crown guards jut out to ensure no accidental pressure is applied to the crown when operating the pushers.

In a racing sport of any sort, the chronograph function is essential, allowing operators to track intervals and elapsed time. Readability is therefore important. Partially skeletonized luminous sword hands and white indexes provide excellent contrast overtop the dial’s deep-black surface. The three sub-dials appear in a classic 3-6-9 layout. The only word on the dial is the Viceroy name, which appears above the FA checkered flag logo and the font chosen for the numbers around the chapter ring adds to the watch’s automotive disposition. A mineral crystal encases it all.

Inside, a reliable quartz movement ticks away, safeguarded by a stainless steel caseback that contributes to the watch’s 164 feet of water resistance. In keeping with the sport-oriented personality of the watch, a black silicone strap featuring a prong buckle inscribed with a V is mounted to the lugs. The strap’s white stitching adds an element of refined detail and makes the watch even more versatile from a fashion point of view.
