World premiere. No compromises.
Never before has there been the opportunity to wear almost 100 years of motorsport history on your wrist. This is a world premiere. To do justice to this special piece of asphalt, we have not compromised on quality. We are using the best materials currently available, such as grade 5 titanium, sapphire, ceramic and natural rubber for our production in La Chaux-de-Fonds.
Our movement: The COB.01. is produced by the renowned manufacturer CONCEPTO.
A mechanical watch needs a solid movement. There are only a few manufacturers that are able to produce a complete calibre. We are glad to be partnering with the renowned manufacturer CONCEPTO from La Chaux-de-Fonds on this project. With specific improvements, our Swiss manufacturer offers its customers the best of both worlds: industrial reliability and exclusive customization. Our calibre—the calibre COB.01. by CONCEPTO—is produced where renowned manufacturers produce their movements.
A unique product requires unique decision-making.
From the materials and the movement to our choice of partners, all of our decisions have been driven by the goal of bringing a unique product to the market. Quality is above all.
Dials. Packaging. Bracelet. Sustainability.
We take sustainability and environmental protection seriously, starting with our dials. The original racetrack asphalt is a 100% reused material. We have taken every opportunity to protect the environment with our product. Even the watch packaging is made from recycled hard cardboard. Another partner from the Filstal in Germany develops and produces exceptional packaging from paper. For the material of the bracelets, we use natural rubber that can produce high-quality and durable products.
