Formula One pilots have every control imaginable at their fingertips, and they have to. Blink for
one-second at 200mph and they’ve traveled roughly 300ft. Driver’s must factor in braking,
shifting, cornering, engaging DRS, adjusting brake bias and managing tire wear while
accounting for 20 other machines traveling the same speed, at times inches from their
wheels. Sounds overwhelming? Welcome to F1.
The Strat-3 from Giorgio Piola is a chronograph sport watch designed to reflect a similar level of control. The
handsome face, brilliantly protected by anti-reflective sapphire glass, displays everything you
need to know at a glance, keeping your focus on what lies ahead. The sub-dials are a subtle
nod to F1 steering wheel design, conveniently displaying a date window while allowing the
wearer to time both lap and individual sector time with utmost accuracy. By adding naturally
robust materials like the sandblasted titanium case and durable race-tire inspired rubber strap,
Piola has created a timepiece that allows its owner to experience the F1 rush everyday.
