Alberto Ascari’s reputation for precision and accuracy helped make him one of the greatest racing drivers of all time. The same attributes help define the superlative Gevril timepiece created in his honor.
Alberto Ascari is a racing legend. This multitalented Italian driver was a two-time Formula One World Champion with back-to-back titles in 1952 and 1953. He also won the legendary Mille Miglia open road endurance race in 1954 and even competed in the Indianapolis 500.
After his untimely death in 1955, Ascari was posthumously inducted into the International Motorsports Hall of Fame and even had a street in Rome named in his honor. It is no surprise that this legendary driver became the inspiration for a unique limited edition timepiece that celebrates his racing heritage.
A masterpiece of form and function
The 48 mm Gevril Alberto Ascari is a masterpiece of Italian design and Swiss watchmaking expertise. The watch is powered by a precision Swiss made MD3G automatic mechanical movement by Ruben & Sons, the atelier of Alberto’s grandson Massimo Ascari. The movement is housed in a 316L stainless steel case. This boldly masculine timepiece features a stunning racing inspired dial that emulates the perforated brake discs found in Alberto Ascari’s Ferrari racecar.
The rotor powering this superb timepiece was inspired by a vintage Ferrari steering wheel and can be viewed through a scratch resistant sapphire exhibition back. The racing theme continues on the side of the stainless steel case with a series of ribs that are reminiscent of a racing engine’s cylinder head.
