CT Scuderia offers a stellar collection of racing watches featuring motorcycle-inspired design elements, such as sandblast finishing, tire track straps, carbon fiber, and leather details. With Italian flair, Swiss-made movements from Ronda, and a flawless sense of style, the brand is a perfect match for racing enthusiasts — you almost have to live and breathe the makers’ lives to understand the passion.
CT Scuderia founder and designer Enrico Margaritelli is a third generation Italian watchmaker and life-long motorcycle lover, rider, and racer who grew up surrounded by some of the greatest watches in the world. If you haven’t heard of Margaritelli, you may have seen — or even own ed—some of his designs for Fossil and Shinola during their rise as premium timepiece producers.
With his own brand, CT Scuderia, Margaritelli meshes his keen sense of detail he built over the years with his childhood roots in Italy and the open road —and we’re here to share his creations.
The first timepiece on our list comes from the Street Racer collection, and it is a beauty. Sporting a rose gold stainless steel frame and perforated black silicon strap, this watch is an absolute head-turner. As with all of CT Scuderia’s watches, detail matters. The dial on this puppy boasts a black honeycomb pattern on the sides and a central carbon fiber piece.
This watch is a perfect companion on the race track with its black IP stainless steel body and natural, genuine leather strap. The CS30103 is part of the Testa-Piatta line, which is inspired by the “bobber” motorcycle, a style devoid of all parts that do not contribute to speed.
One of the smoothest silhouettes from CT Scuderia is featured in the Corsa collection, which is derived from the original “Master Time” model of dash-mounted watches. The white dial shines on a black stainless steel frame and perforated strap, allowing for the big, bold markers to stand out no matter how fast your day is going.
Another Corsa creation, this navy blue dial and shining stainless steel frame is one of loudest watches on our roundup — and by loud, we mean the timepiece is noticeable from a quarter-mile away. Sporting a genuine brown leather strap, the CS20124 is a versatile option for everyday use, classy functions, or speedy moments on the road.
The Coda Corta collection is driven by four components: classic, short, slim, and fast. This timepiece flourishes with a smaller casing, vintage leather strap, black IP stainless steel body, and classic buckle. The watch is truly a work of art.
Now for favorite of the bunch. The Scrambler collection showcases a square face that is truly unique in the timepiece market. The watch radiates an off-road feel by blending a black IP stainless steel frame with robust white markers and an extra-long, genuine leather strap.
If you’re a true motor head, CT Scuderia also offers other road-inspired accessories, such as helmets and leather goods.
