Racing has a clear order of operations: Accelerate. Brake. Repeat. Hardly as easy as it appears considering Formula One cars accelerate to 300kph in under 10 seconds and come to a complete stop in less than 3 seconds, placing an upwards of 5g’s on their pilots.
At these speeds the consequences are immense, forcing drivers to trust their instincts and make every decision with supreme confidence and unwavering trust in their equipment. The Model G5 from Giorgio Piola is designed with this confidence and trust in engineering in mind.
The timepiece is inspired by the running gear and piston rings of the 900hp power units, with forged carbon case, carbon fiber accents and a slotted fixed bezel brilliantly recreating brake discs. That is coupled with inlayed sub-dials and a tasteful level of complexity that purveyors of fine craftsmanship will certainly appreciate.
Trust in your instincts and confidently move forward with a sport watch that perfectly encapsulates the forces of F1.
