Scalfaro Watches are based in Switzerland and a recently new client to AmbientLife, this week saw the launch of a new exciting limited edition watch from their craftsmen based on the infamous Aston Martin DB4GT Zagato ‘2VEV’ designed by Ercole Spada in 1960.
The watch contains original material from the Aston Martin ‘2VEV’ which today is regarded as one of the Worlds rarest Aston Martin’s. Photographer Tim Wallace worked with Scalfaro to help provide the marketing and promotional photography featuring the very rare ‘2 VEV’ DB4GT Zagato for use in their marketing and corporate advertising for the new timepiece.

The company has a fascination with engineering and motor sport and is never shy of taking on new challenges and in recent years have created and crafted some limited editions watches incorporating original material of some of the world’s most rare and valuable cars.
The Aston Martin DB4 GT Zagato was introduced in October 1960 at the London Motor Show as effectively a DB4 GT, it was then lightened and improved by the Zagato factory in Italy by the famous Ercole Spada. Initially the factory had plans to produce 25 cars, but demand wasn’t as strong as expected and production ceased after the 20th car rolled off production.
Nowadays, due to the rarity and popularity of the DB4 GT Zagato, the cars are worth a considerable amount of money, and at auction they can easily reach very high figures in excess of £5 million.
