Official Retailer of Tonino Lamborghini Watches
Tuesday - 02 March 2021
A recognised symbol of fine Italian manufacture, Tonino Lamborghini watches embody the most unique parts of its Italian heritage with the adrenaline and excitement of luxury sports cars. Defined by the iconic Raging Bull logo found on every dial, the Italian watch brand has finally found its way to Jura Watches where we are now official retailers of all the latest Tonino Lamborghini watches and their best-selling collections.
Tonino Lamborghini watches were founded in 1981 by its founder of the same name, with a mission to personify the excitement, elegance, and formidable power of Italian tradition. The modern-day company that you see now is home to a fantastic selection of style and lifestyle accessories including leather goods, eyewear and even smartphones, but one aspect of the brand that has remained since the very beginning is their love of traditional watch manufacture. Influenced by his family’s heritage and his own personal experiences within mechanical engineering and automotive design, Tonino Lamborghini has created a stunning selection of luxury timepieces inspired by the realm of sports cars. From small stylistic details like counters and pushers dressed like foot pedals to specific materials and colours used to reflect the interiors of luxury vehicles, Tonino Lamborghini watches are destined for the wrists of petrol heads.
“My creative instinct is completely free and without limits. An idea can come to my mind in the middle of the night or during a visit at a museum or even during a fair…Eclecticism is part of who I am, and it is clearly seen through the diversity of products in my brand’s portfolio and the various themes each collection displays. At the same time, they remain united by an uncompromised spirit, by a passion for all that is Italian and by a strong recall to my family’s heritage”. - Tonino Lamborghini, Founder of Tonino Lamborghini Watches
Tonino Lamborghini Spyder Watches
The Tonino Lamborghini Spyder watch collection has become one of the Italian watch manufacturer’s most iconic designs, first created in 2008 as tribute to the shield that encompasses the famous “Raging Bull” logo. It has undergone several evolutions over the years but one thing that remains the same is its distinctive shield-shaped case engineered from stainless steel or titanium and coated in black or rose gold PVD. At the centre, three subsidiary dials for chronograph and small seconds provides the perfect touch of symmetry.
Alongside the classic Tonino Lamborghini Spyder watch collection, the family has adapted to include two sub-families including the Spyder X and the Spyderleggero. The Tonino Lamborghini Spyder X is instantly recognisable for its exclusive start/reset pushers and interchangeable leather straps. The Tonino Lamborghini Spyderleggero on the other hand features a stylistic sophistication with light materials and a more streamlined, aggressive case. We particularly love the Spyderleggero Skeleton range with their complex and intricate openwork dials.
Tonino Lamborghini Cuscinetto Watches
Taking inspiration from a specific mechanical element known as the ball bearing, which in Italian translates to “cuscinetto”, Tonino Lamborghini created his first range of Cuscinetto watches back in 1983. Today’s designs continue to retain the DNA of his very first model which used a special bidirectional rotating bezel with an accent that recalls the mechanical element used to reduce the friction between two moving parts. The ball bearing is the uniting ring between the first and the new collections, the founder Tonino and his heir and son Ferruccio, the past and the future.
Part of the Tonino Lamborghini Cuscinetto watch collection is the Cuscinetto R model which is described as the sportive and challenging evolution of its predecessor. It’s formidable case shape and unique lugs are strongly inspired by the motorcycling world, not only in aesthetics but also in functionality with ergonomic characteristics that make it wearable on the racetrack. Smoked sapphire crystal glass protects the collection and, in some designs, gives a glimpse into the Swiss made automatic winding movement within.
Tonino Lamborghini GT1 Watches
Another strong and powerful design destined for the wrists of petrol heads, the Tonino Lamborghini GT1 watch collection takes its namesake from the touring car models of the same name. The streamlined satin and polished finished cases are also inspired by the heritage of the brand with special features like the subsidiary dials for 1/10th of second, 30 minutes and small seconds purposely engineered to recall speedometers of a car while the start and stop pushers on the right hand side are shaped like acceleration and brake pedals.
The Tonino Lamborghini GT1 watch collection is also to a range of Swiss made quartz movements which deliver exceptional precision, chronograph complication and a retrograde date window on carbon fibre patterned dials. Continuing with their love of motorsport, the dials are detailed with luminous hands and indexes in a choice of automobile-inspired colours and paired with interchangeable leather straps similarly detailed with sporty stitch detailing.
