Giuliano Mazzuoli Introduces the Carrara Marble Wristwatch
Giuliano Mazzuoli uses the famous marble quarried in Tuscany for the watch case of the Carrara, a wristwatch modelled on his signature Manometro.
Italian designer Giuliano Mazzuoli, best known for the Manometro wristwatch inspired by a pressure gauge, has turned to the city of Carrara for its famous marble to fabricate his latest watch case. The Carrara wristwatch features a cylindrical case made from the signature white marble of the northern Italian city. Located at the northern end of Tuscany, some 100 km from Florence, Carrara is famous for the marble quarried there. Some of the most storied buildings and artwork in the world contains marble from Carrara, including the Pantheon in Rome, and Michelangelo’s David.
This white marble with faint grey veining is machined into a cylinder and bonded with an inner steel to strengthen the marble. The resulting case is 45mm in diameter and streamlined, much like the Manometro. The strap attaches directly to the case, without any lugs.
The Carrara is available either as a time-only wristwatch or a chronograph. The time-only model is equipped with an automatic ETA 2824, while the chronograph is powered by a self-winding Valjoux calibre modified by movement specialist La Joux-Perret.
The Carrara wristwatch is priced at €3600 for the time-only model, and €5800 for the chronograph.Back to top.
