Item #: 10780
Inspired by everything Formula One, the G5 stands to be the perfect watch for the motorsports enthusiast. The G5 name comes from the level of G-Force that of which Formula One cars can achieve during acceleration or braking. The design is taken from the running gear and piston rings of the 900hp power units.
The 48mm case is made of forged carbon, which processes the carbon fiber in a unique way through a compression mold and creates a marbled appearance. This allows the case to stay lightweight and comfortable on our wrist. On the bezel, you'll find a titanium ring inspired by brake rotors.
Internally, the watch is powered by the Valjoux 7750 swiss movement, perhaps the most tested and famous of all Swiss movements.
Giorgio Piola Timepieces takes its name from the legendary Formula One technical illustrator who, for almost 50 years, has covered every change in design and engineering for every car on the grid through his technical drawings. In a sport where victory is determined by mere hundredths of a second, it is often the most minuscule change that makes all the difference. That is why Giorgio’s drawings are so relevant for Formula One fans. His work has been published in the most acclaimed sport magazines and newspapers in the world and he also serves as contributor in television broadcasts. Today, Giorgio is fulfilling a lifelong dream of bringing his attention to detail and artistic background to the design of timepieces.
