Story

The Grand Tourer Decade

Take a joyride back through time with the TOURER collection – a celebration of the iconic Grand Tourer (GT), that decorated the landscape of the late ‘50s and throughout the ‘60s. 

Crafted by skilled artisans and visionary designers, the GT cars were designed for long-distance driving and high speed – whether you wanted to leisurely cruise through the open roads, or tackle them with speed, the Grand Tourer was the car for the job.

The roots of the Grand Tourer / Gran Turismo history trace back to the Italian Mille Miglia (1000-mile) race of the ‘20s. 

In the words of Enzo Ferrari, “The Mille Miglia created our cars and the Italian car industry. The Mille Miglia permitted the birth of GT, or grand touring cars, which are now sold all over the world. The Mille Miglia proved […] that motor racing improves the breed.”

Coined as the ‘gentleman’s luxury car,’ GTs of the ‘50s and ‘60s were traditionally two-door coupes with 2 seats or a 2+2 seating arrangement. They were front-engine cars with a rear-wheel drive to open up more cabin and loading space. Grand tourers are most often the coupé derivative of luxury saloons or sedans. Many iconic car models, such as the Mercedes-Benz 300 SL, Jaguar E-Type, and Aston Martin DB5, are considered classic examples of Grand Tourer cars.

Inspiration

A Study of Elegance

The passionate craftsmanship behind each car was evident in every detail. These sleek machines were defined by their curved, flowing outlines and compact frames, exuding a new sense of sophistication.

Their silhouette was a perfect blend of function and form which formed a coupe-like body, with the objective to make the vehicle as streamlined as possible while retaining its sheer beauty.

GTs were also known for their lightweight spoke wheels, which complemented its curved aesthetic and focus to high speed driving. At the front they featured big grills to provide the high displacement engines with sufficient cooling to prevent overheating on long stints.

The elegant charm of the vintage GTs was lifted by the predominant use of robust steel (with some fibreglass and aluminium exceptions) with interiors swathed in premium materials such as leather, wood, and textiles.

Result

The core of TOURER

When we set out to create the TOURER collection, we made no compromises on materials. Encased in 316L stainless steel, with an exhibition caseback inspired by the spoke wheels exposing the balance wheel and enclosed within a domed sapphire crystal, the TOURER collection epitomises timeless quality.

In styling, we wanted to encapsulate the GT’s streamlined silhouettes into the case design, the lugs and case in between takes inspiration from these organic shapes. 

The evocative dial motif composed of stamp squares and metallic dots is a reference to the metallic, hand-made detailing found across the grills of the GT – a simple, yet sophisticated backdrop to the raised indices. Lastly, a selection of classic GT colours has been applied to the dial to seal the exterior inspiration. 

The leather-lined interiors radiate the sense of class associated with GTs, we therefore went with an italian leather strap with quick-release system, for easy replacement.

Made with the gentleman in mind, so whether you are behind the wheel or not, you may wear the TOURER timepieces for a ride in understated class, whatever the outfit.

You can purchase this item in payment installments with Splitit - with no extra hidden costs. The installments will be spread over your chosen number of months and debited to your credit card.
Splitit installment payments at 0% interest: How does it work exactly?

Splitit allows you to split the total payment over a maximum of twelve months using your credit card. This service is free, involves no credit checks or applications, and means you can choose to split your payment into monthly installments.

To use this payment method all you need a credit card with a sufficient amount of available credit. Splitit authorizes the total order value—but don’t worry, this is not taken in full when you complete the purchase. At the time of shipping, only the first installment will be charged to your credit card. The remaining balance will be held on your credit card until the final payment has been made. However, a payment authorization for the outstanding amount of your purchase will be held during the full payment period.

After each monthly payment, the amount held from your available balance will be reduced to the new remaining balance (the held amount might appear as “pending”). To ensure that the authorization of your credit card is valid for the entire payment period, the authorization will be renewed every 21 days.

Are there any extra fees involved?

No, this is an interest-free payment method with no additional fixed fees, service fees, interest, or hidden fees of any kind.

Which credit cards does Splitit support?

You can pay using Splitit with a Mastercard or Visa card. Debit cards, American Express and pre-paid cards are not accepted.

Do I have to maintain the required available credit amount on my credit card?

Yes, you must maintain a sufficient amount on your credit card for both the monthly payment and for the full outstanding amount of your purchase during the full period of the plan. The authorized amount will be charged only in the event that a monthly payment is declined (the authorization hold might appear as “pending” on your credit card bill).

What happens if I return the product?

If you decide to not keep the ordered item(s), upon return of the items we will reimburse the installments that have already been paid and cancel the outstanding payments.

When and where can I choose the number of installments for my payment plan?

Installment payments with Splitit can be chosen as a payment option during the checkout process. Here, you can choose the number of installments in your payment plan and view the monthly payment amounts.
