is fully em­brac­ing its sporty side this year with a strate­gic part­ner­ship with Pirelli, the well-known tire maker, and sup­plied to For­mula One. The flag­ship watch to kick off the as­so­ci­a­tion is the Ex­cal­ibur Spi­der Pirelli – Dou­ble Fly­ing Tour­bil­lon. Rub­ber in­lays are taken di­rectly from Pirelli tires that have al­ready com­peted and won in an F1 race; fans of the sport may rec­og­nize that the blue color is re­lated to the spe­cific type of tire, in this in­stance, the wet weather ones. The rub­ber com­po­nents nat­u­rally ex­tend to the strap. For this par­tic­u­lar piece, which is highly lim­ited, the owner will be in­vited to an ex­clu­sive two-day VIP pro­gram at a mo­tor­sport event, as guests of Pirelli them­selves.
