Pagani Zonda F Chrono
ENGINEERED BY CVSTOS
Technical performance and aesthetic research are the driving force for the automobile and watchmaking industries. They are also the immutable watchwords guiding the creation of this one-of-a-kind timepiece: the Pagani Zonda F Chrono.
In his quest for an alter ego in the elite world of Haute Horlogerie, Horacio Pagani, designed a magnificent object where art and technology match in a single word interpreting Pagani’s creations. All drawings, concepts and materials chosen by Pagani gave birth to a high clockwork piece, this thanks to the experience of Cvstos talented designer, Antonio Terranova.
He has been asked to express technically the aesthetical content thought by Mr. Pagani, being in tune with his extraordinary supercars.
The result shows a sophistication that is expressed in a plethora of similarities that form a strong reminder of its shared identity with the Pagani Zonda F.
The particularly refined watchcase comes in titanium, a metal renowned for its typical aeronautical derivation, or in the noble allure characteristic of 5N red gold. The polished and satin-finished form replicates the slender, elegant lines of the car’s bodywork. Thanks to the creative, three-dimensional mind of Antonio Terranova, the rear end of the Pagani Zonda F can be seen distinctly on the side of the case at 9 o’clock, whilst the crown and push-pieces are reminiscent in design of the gear lever and dashboard controls. The use of advanced, state-of-the-art assembly methods ensures that this resilient, robust watch remains water-resistant to 100 metres.
Framed by a layering of sapphire crystals supported by two grade 5 titanium columns, the double dial displays the hours using a typography that would be perfectly at home on the instrument panel of these remarkable super cars. The hands proudly sporting the Pagani logo are enveloped in transparency in an amazing feat of superimposition. The ultra-precise mechanical chronograph movement with automatic winding is fitted with a rotor designed and developed by Cvstos, which combines the extreme density of palladium with the special high elasticity module of grade 5 titanium. With a passion for perfection that is evident in every last detail, Antonio Terranova has reinvented the rotor in a version that replicates a Pagani wheel rim and allows connoisseurs to admire the workings through the transparent sapphire crystal back. The watchband fastener is admirably manufactured in steel and carbon fiber.
The height of elegance is achieved in this stunning chronograph, whose leather strap is similar in both quality and stitching to that used by master saddlers to adorn the cockpit of a Pagani sports car.
Of one thing there remains no doubt, the Pagani Chrono symbolizes the resounding success of the fabulous cars who inspired it.
