#10: Ferrari Scaglietti 612 ($320,000) with the Officine Panerai Ferrari DLC ($17,000)
For a double feature, I’ve chosen Officine Panerai paired up with two hot models. Officine Panerai is the official watchmaker of Ferrari, with a history dating back to the mid-1800s, crafting timepieces for the Italian Navy. For the recently updated design to their continuing Ferrari series, the watchmakers took inspiration for their design from the Scaglietti Coachbuilders.
The Scaglietti plant is found in Modena, Italy and is where they hand-build the all-aluminum 612 Scaglietti and its glorious V12 engine. The Panerai Ferrari DLC proudly displays the Ferrari logo with their signature red for the sub-dials, mimicking the Ferrari tachometer. The dials are shaped similarly to Ferrari taillights, with the convex crystal mimicking its rear window. The crown features the Prancing Horse that’s fixed with a bayonet lock, so the horse always remains in the upright position. The crystal back is engraved with a Ferrari-like grille pattern that still allows you to observe the “period” movement used. The screwback also is purposely composed of 12 parts, one for every cylinder in a Scaglietti engine. Ultra-strong DLC, steel, gold or pick gold is used for the case, with either an alligator, or a more sporty, rubber strap.

#11: Ferrari California ($200,000) with the Officine Panerai Ferrari California Flyback ($17,000)
To celebrate the release of the new Ferrari California, Officine Panerai had a flyback ready. A variation of their newly redesigned Ferrari collection, the California Flyback is tagged with both the Ferrari and California logos. It has a slightly puffed appearance with a convex face and curved square body. The redline between 12 and 3 is a nice little detail that causes my right foot to twitch instinctively.
