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.
