Ferrari is a brand not renowned for taking the cheap option. This has allowed it to remain a highly exclusive and in-demand brand.

Little wonder it has gone straight to the Swiss artisan watchmaker, Cabestan, for its latest merchandise tie-in.

The Scuderia Ferrari One by Cabestan has been designed by the leading French watchmaker, Jean-Francois Ruchonnet.

Naturally it uses only the finest materials, including carbon fibre, just like the Ferrari road and race cars.

But to make sure not every Tom, Dick and Harry gets their hands on one of these timepieces, only 60 will be built.

What's more, only existing Ferrari owners will be offered the chance to buy one. Oh, yeah, and they'll cost $425,000.

Exclusivity does come at a price.

Pay $425k for a watch and you can say what the fuck time it is.

That is the ultimate wank for people/ collectors with too many Euros.

Ferrari have a licence to print money, you just have to look at this BS to see that.

you will find the majority of the money is in the value of the watch in this scenario, not just ferrari putting out their own watch...

It was the same with Panerai etc, Hublot and the F1 king... AP and the Rubens B edition...

You're kidding $425K for a watch ?

I paid $15K for a very nice Rolex in Lucerne, no watch is worth $425k unless it has a lot of diamonds and gold in it.

Wrong. Watches can be, and are worth 425K. *that does not mean I would pay that for one, if I was in the position*
That is like saying no house is worth 30 million.
Heaps of people would say your maseratti isn't worth what you paid? Its only a car right?

I would much prefer a watch with no diamonds or gold and great craftsmanship...
Diamonds and gold are not the only valuable things...  :thumbsup:

So this watch is crafted better than a Rolex ? $400k better ?
I've got a good imagination but even I can't see that.

Just looked at the web site, it's got a complicated mechanism but I don't even think it looks that good to be honest.

Some collectors watches, rare, may be worth that sort of money like paintings but this ? don't think so.
