Pre-Owned Picks — Forza Ferrari Watches

HomePreowned PicksPre-Owned Picks — Forza Ferrari Watches Preowned PicksPre-Owned Picks — Forza Ferrari Watches Four Ferrari double-stamped watches for week 22 by Ben Hodges May 29, 2020 MIN READPre-Owned Picks — Forza Ferrari WatchesThis week, in Pre-owned Picks, I am highlighting four watches with Ferrari co-branding spanning more than four decades.
The news of Sebastian Vettel leaving the Scuderia Ferrari Formula One team this season, whatever is left of it, had me thinking about what Ferrari means to F1. The team from Maranello is the most successful in terms of driver’s and constructor’s championships. But they transcend any other team when it comes to prestige. F1 without Ferrari is not F1 to me.

The second time this question was asked, you could have knocked me down with a feather. At the third time of asking, I figured it was time to stop being shocked the people wanted to know and get on with answering the question. Which watches do Rugby referees wear?
So, which watches do rugby referees wear? Off the pitch, I can’t comment. I’m sure some of the best refs in the game have a few fancy watches they strap-on when they don’t have to worry about getting trampled by the stampeding juggernauts of the modern game. But on the field of play, a referee’s timepiece is often determined by sponsorship agreements between the competition organizers and market-leading watchmaking…

Before we can answer “When were watches first invented”, we must first address the somewhat broader question of “What is a watch?”
I’m sure you have a pretty good image in your head. I did too. And then I really started to think about it. How does one really draw a line between watches and clocks? On the surface there are a few simple suggestions that seem to hold weight, but ultimately fall down thanks to exceptional outliers spoiling the party for everyone else.
