Tonino Lamborghini - Bearing

Tonino Lamborghini's Cuscinetto model dates back to 1983, when the company created one of its first examples by taking inspiration from a mechanical element, the ball bearing. This model was created using a special bi-directional rotating bezel, characterised by a design reminiscent of the mechanical element used to reduce rotational friction between two objects moving (rotating or linear) towards each other. 36 years later, Tonino's son Ferruccio, together with designer Fulvio Locci, has redesigned the titanium case with Torx screws, available in five different colour variants, adopting a new movement and inserting a personalised folding clasp to accompany the interchangeable leather and rubber strap. Just as Tonino gave the first Bearing to his father, so did Ferruccio with the new model, carrying on the family tradition. Moreover, the ball bearing symbolises the brand's DNA: a company in constant movement, an Italian brand that has drawn inspiration from its mechanical heritage to innovate with style, elegance and boldness. The bearing is the link between the first watch collection and the new one, the founder Tonino and his heir Ferruccio, the past and the future. A bezel that runs as fast as the history of a brand that is always one step ahead. The watch has a 42 mm satin-finished titanium case that is water-resistant to a pressure of 10 atmospheres and the dial is protected by an anti-reflective sapphire crystal. The movement used, mechanical with automatic winding, is the Sellita calibre SW200-1 (28,800 vibrations/hour, 26 jewels, 38-hour power reserve), Swiss Made. Price: 1,900 euros.
