C70 3527 GT Chronometer - Limited Edition

Availability: In stock.

Product Description

In partnership with TMB Artmetal we are proud to offer you the chance of owning a small piece of one of the world's most iconic, and not to say valuable, cars - the Ferrari 250 GTO.

Embedded behind museum-grade sapphire crystal in the back-plate of this stunning chronometer is an original piece of exterior panelling from the seventh GTO (only 39 were ever built), which left the Ferrari factory on 22nd May, 1962. The date is actually featured in the watch's tachymeter.

To understand the GTO's importance in the annals of automotive history, one needs only to recall the world record $52 million spent by an unnamed buyer in October 2013 to secure chassis number 5111 GT from Connecticut-based collector Paul Pappalardo

The chassis number of the C70's car, 3527 GT, gives this strictly limited watch its nomenclature, and this is indicated on the side of the case.

The traditional Ferrari colouring of the beautifully executed dial serves as an impressive overture for the back-plate of the watch. The piece of original metal has been skillfully cut by experts in Switzerland to allow the number 6 from the car's number-plate to be shown in glorious Rosso Corsa livery.

To own a Ferrari 250 GTO is an impossible dream for all but a handful of billionaire collectors and ageing rock stars (Nick Mason of Pink Floyd owns one); but for a fortunate few, the dream can be at least partially realised by owning the C70 3527 GT.

NB For the sake of fairness, we are only releasing one of the 100 piece limited series per individual order.

Ordering Your C70 3527 GT and Cufflinks
Pre-orders are now open to secure your C70 3527 GT watch or cufflinks for an October delivery, should you also want to secure particular serial numbers from the 100 piece limited editions (you may want matching serial numbers, for instance, if buying both items) please make direct contact with our Head of Customer Service, Wera Mettes, by emailing wera.mettes@christopherward.co.uk. Allocations will be made on a strictly first come, first served basis and we would urge you to act quickly to avoid disappointment as this series is expected to be significantly over-subscribed.

Beautiful watch
Review by GTD
My wife surprised me with this one, and it really is an impressive watch. As mentioned by a previous review, the colours do stand out, b&b t I don't think it is garish. The watch is beautifully packaged as ever from CW, and the booklet with it is a nice thing in itself.
As Good As It Gets
Review by Yachtmaster
I have recently received my C70. 3527 GT Chronometer 004 / 100 and I have to say that when I opened the box a piece of history was there waiting. Presentation, Looks and Quality were abound..
I stumbled across the Christopher Ward brand and investigated the website and saw the limited edition and instantly knew that I had to have one to add to my collection, I guess as my wife said at the time I must be mad to order a watch I knew nothing about in terms of the physical quality over the internet.Once I had the box opened in my hand there was no question that my instinct was absolutely right.. Love the watch, love the quality and for sure to have only one of 100, I consider that something special.
Thank you to all the team at Christopher Ward for a great service, great watch and the absolute opportunity to buy with confidence, receiving everything that was promised and more.
A piece of history on your wrist!
Review by Malinous
Oh dear, I may need to begin attending 'Christopher Ward anonymous' meetings, I just can't stop buying their watches.
This is my fifth (not to mention the three I have bought my wife), and my favourite so far. A genuine piece of automotive history you can wear on your wrist. The watch is an absolutely stunning piece, beautiful in every respect. The red detailing is brighter in the flesh than it appears in the photos, and the yellow highlights are just enough without being over the top.
I've read online reviews of this piece that criticise the price. Well for those who think it is overpriced consider this. To my knowledge Breitling use the exact same COSC movement (they call it 'Superquartz') in watches costing over £4000 that DON'T have a piece of a 1962 Ferrari 250GTO in the case-back. So who's really overcharging?
If you still think it's overpriced take a look at the C70-VW4. It's basically the same watch with the same COSC movement but without the precious metal, and it'll only set you back £599. It's a great watch, I should know, I have one of those too!
I genuinely believe these watches will be intensely collectable in the years to come given that only 100 will ever be made, and I for one am over the moon in the knowledge that I own one. I may never be able to afford a £35million vintage Ferrari, but I do own a little bit of one, and how many of us can say that?
Buy one, while you still can.
