Inspired by the technical complexity of Formula One, Giorgio Piola combined his ability to identify and capture the most minute details with his world class artistic ability to carve out a niche within the world of motorsport. Providing some of the first real inside looks at the technical side of auto racing.
As a reporter, Giorgio provides on camera analysis on the mechanics and specs for some of the most highly engineered vehicles in the world. He is revered as one of the go-to authorities in the sport, and even now, continues to provide stunning drawings in detail only Piola himself can capture.
Today, his work not only delivers stunning art pieces that showcase the technical complexity of Formula 1, but as of 2017, provided an elegant timepiece collection that embodies the true spirit of racing and Swiss precision. The brand first launched with three limited edition models but has since expanded to three collections and almost 30 models; all with precise Swiss movement and unique Formula 1 inspired features.
From the cases made from the same carbon fiber found in F1 cars, to the dial that pays homage to the high revving engines found in race cars, the whole collection has been inspired by the exquisite craftsmanship, attention to detail, high level of innovation and precise engineering that goes into Formula 1. Allowing race fans to appreciate the details but still keep an elegant design that any watch aficionado would instantly fall in love with.
Giorgio Piola has been able to take the knowledge he’s gained over the years and directly apply it to the new F1 inspired G5 Delta. Based on the original G5 collection, the Delta offers stunning details in four color variations, showcasing Giorgio’s collection of technical knowledge used across racing. The G5 Delta is attached to the wrist through a stainless-steel deployant buckle and further reinforced with highly resistant black or blue rubber straps designed to mimic sleek tire tread patterns. Featuring a robust titanium case with or without a black PVD coating for durability and light-wear.
