When a world champion F1 racing driver like Fernando Alonso checks the time, he needs something very special.
When two-time F1 racing world champion Fernando Alonso became a brand ambassador for Spanish watchmaker Viceroy, the company decided to create an entire collection based around the needs and sensibilities of top racing drivers. The resulting race-oriented Fernando Alonso Collection is a celebration of sport and competition, featuring sleek, sporty timepieces that are packed with functional features any good driver would appreciate.
The showpiece of this impressive collection is the stealthy looking Special Edition Chronograph. This aerodynamic 44 mm timing tool is a driver’s dream. With two well-placed 6-minute and 24-hour totalizers, along with a third free running small seconds display, this watch is well-equipped to time events of any duration.
A signature element seen in all Fernando Alonso watches are the four distinctive hex nuts that attach the bezel to the stealthy IP black case. These screws, which have the appearance of automotive lug-nuts, add a unique racing flair to this versatile chronograph. The comfortable, soft black rubber strap has been completely integrated with the protruding tapered lugs for a seamless, unified appearance. The combination of a dial that has the appearance of a racing dashboard instrument and a grooved, rubber strap that evokes images of F1 racing tires is totally compelling.
Like an F1 driver’s car, the Viceroy Special Edition 47617-55 is both awesomely beautiful and completely practical. With skeletonized hands that ensure the three sub-dials are always readable, large luminous numbers, and wide flange shaped pushers, this watch is easy to operate and read under the most demanding driving conditions.
A precision quartz movement powers the Special Edition 47617-55, ensuring accuracy and reliability at all times. The watch is water resistant to 165 feet and features a durable mineral glass crystal to protect the dial. Adding to the unique appeal of the Special Edition is a special personalized stainless steel caseback.
