[YesAuto] What can be done with a scrapped car in an accident? Recently, an Australian company called Fuoriserie (Italian, translated as “mechanical customization”), inspired by the golden age of motor sports, designed a very cost-effective watch. This watch combines the retro aesthetics of classic cars with the parts and cost-effectiveness of contemporary supercars.

According to reports, the design of the bezel is inspired by the bumper of the 1948 Cadillac. The leather strap with holes is a tribute to the steering wheel style of vintage cars, and the dial part is made of parts recycled from super sports cars that have been beyond repair. .

Fuoriserie watches are available in two color combinations. The metal parts of the Storm black dial come from a burned Aston Martin Rapide, and the metal parts of the Rossa red dial come from a crashed Ferrari 348 TB. Due to the use of parts from a real accident car, no two watches are exactly the same.

The watch will contain traces of past use of the original car, including scratches, dents, gouges and other defects. Fuoriserie believes that these defects are part of the brand's aesthetics. Instead of removing them, they improve them and create a sustainable product that reveals the characteristics of recycled materials.

From concept, design to testing, each stage of this watch is carried out by the founder David Giammetta in Sydney. The watch uses the Japanese Miyota 203A quartz movement and is manufactured in China. The two-color Fuoriserie watches are produced in a limited edition of 150 pieces each, each with a separate serial number, priced at AUD 450, or approximately RMB 2,145.
