Due Tempi: Black IP Stainless Steel Case with Vintage Brown Genuine Leather Strap
A little history: For years motorcyclists have argued on which the best was: a two-stroke engine or a four-stroke engine. A two-stroke engine can produce twice the amount of power (and make twice as much noise) than a four-stroke engine of the same size. This is because it fires once every revolution, giving it twice the power of a four-stroke, which only fires once every other revolution. It also has a significantly higher weight-to-power ratio because it is much lighter.
Growing up in a family tied to the culture of watchmaking coupled with his experience as an endurance motorcyclist, Margaritelli designed a dual time collection called “2 (Due) Tempi,” meaning two time zones.
This watch is made with two Swiss movements and is inspired by the very popular café racer bike, the Kawasaki 500cc, which has a two-stroke engine. Thus with two movements come two crowns placed at the 6 and 12 o’ clock positions, which provide a very distinctive look adding to the overall dual theme of the collection.
Details include real carbon fiber dials, lumi bright hands and numerals, as well as straps made of crosta nubuck leather that are extraordinarily soft and known for being used in the highest quality Italian shoes and belts.
When style and performance need equal attention, you look no farther than the Due Tempi collection.
