Top 10 Maserati watches

Italian flair

 

Maserati is probably one of the most evocative names in motorsport history. Having made performance cars for over a century, the brand has made some of the most aspirational supercars and luxury cruisers over the years. Iconic and flamboyant style with subtle design cues that makes their cars recognizably theirs, Maserati is a true celebration of Italian style and performance. The brand is also known for their range of stylish watches as well, sharing the same code as their cars, iconic high-performance machines, whether they’re strapped on your wrist or racing on tarmac, Maserati’s creations are icons in design and performance. With an extensive catalogue of timepieces, it might be tricky to find the right one for you, so we’ve narrowed down ten of the brand’s most iconic and unique designs, so you don’t have to.

 

MASERATI TRIMARANO R8871632003 MEN'S WATCH

 

Kicking off our list today is a rather bold and striking take on what a casual sports chronograph can be. On paper, the Trimarano might seem unassuming at first, simple black dial, with a traditional 6,9,12 sub dial layout for the chronograph and a date window too for added practicality. The case is where things start to take a turn for the interesting, right off the bat this looks like the sort of watch where the case and the lugs are two separate components. With the main housing of the watch in a perfectly round case set against a pair of thin, angular, elongated and extended lugs that gives the watch a very space-age feel to it. The execution of this is very Italian of course, with the chronograph pushers matching the angular and thin lugs, looking more as an extension of the case than actual buttons. The matte black dial with simple skeletonized markers and hands adds nicely to the overall style of the watch as well. The dark blue chapter ring adds a nice pop of colour that makes the watch much more interesting to look at, without compromising on the overall black stealthy nature of the design. Overall if you’re looking for a casual chronograph watch with a unique and unconventional design, then the futuristic Trimarano chronograph is certainly for you.

MASERATI POTENZA R8821108026 AUTOMATIC WATCH

 

Certainly, one of the boldest and most recognizable designs in the Maserati line-up of watches, the Potenza is the watch you’ll think of when someone mentions Maserati watches after you’ve seen it. Featuring a rounded, angular case with angled lugs and integrated straps, the watch certainly harks back to the 70s sports-watches like the Royal Oak or the Nautilus. But with a sense of Italian style, the design is much bolder than its Swiss counterparts. Featuring two ‘claw-like’ protrusions on the side of the case and bezel, the pair at the top finished in a smooth polished whereas the bottom pair are ridged, the lines extending through the dial as well which is meant to represent the famed wide Maserati grille. The leather strap also features stitching in red, white and green, a subtle but noticeable hint of the company’s heritage with the colours of the Italian flag going through the length of the strap. Power comes from a reliable Japanese Miyota caliber which is great news for watch lovers and petrol heads alike. A watch with Italian style and Japanese reliability sounds like the perfect timepiece for everyone.

MASERATI EPOCA R8853118004 MEN'S WATCH

 

We can’t have a list featuring Italian watches without having at least a simple elegant three-handed dress watch, now can we? And here it is, the Epoca in a rose gold case and a matching rose gold bracelet too. First off, the dial is beautifully executed with applied golden indexes and roman numerals along the periphery and the iconic trident logo at 12 O’clock, matching golden lance shaped hands, a simple sub-seconds dial and of course that stunning sun-ray charcoal grey dial as well. The case is a simple Italian affair as well, sculpted in a simple traditional rounded design with no sharp angles, but with extended swooping lugs to complete the elegant look of the watch. Matching the elegant case is an equally elegant rose gold Milanese mesh bracelet that gives it a much dressier yet vintage feel. The watch is powered by a Japanese quartz caliber too ensuring smooth and reliable performance throughout its lifetime. If you’re in the market for a simple time only dress watch but want something with a little bit more style and flamboyance, the Epoca is certainly the watch for you.

MASERATI RICORDO R8821133001 MEN'S AUTOMATIC WATCH

 

The Maserati Ricordo Automatic is a prime example of the term; less is more. It is a simple, elegant three hander with slim markers lining the periphery of the dial and slim matching baton hands as well. So far so simple, but there’s a catch, the watch features a lovely open-heart showcasing the escapement of the automatic movement powering it between 7 O’clock and 8 O’clock. The watch is fitted with an elegant and skinny brushed black stainless-steel case, with a matching black dial and strap as well. So, it's black on black on black, very cool indeed. Despite the very dark theme of the overall design, legibility isn’t compromised thanks in part to the contrasting black polished hands against the clean matte black dial. The watch features a trialled and tested seagull automatic caliber that is very nicely decorated too which gives a nice flair to the otherwise simple watch. If a 3 handed mechanical dress watch is what you’re looking for, the Ricordo Automatic should be high on your list of considerations.

  • Movement Type - Automatic

MASERATI POTENZA R8821108029 MEN'S AUTOMATIC WATCH

 

The second Potenza on our list is the more elegant one of the lot. Featuring a two-tone case in gold and silver, this change in colour gives the bold design a much dressier feel. The design is of course, reminiscent of the bold sports watches of the 1970s with a rounded-angular case and of course the extended angular lugs ending with an integrated strap design. The case is in a silvered brushed stainless steel which is contrasted nicely by the polished gold PVD bezel which adds a sense of dressiness to an otherwise bold and sporty design. The watch is powered by a Japanese automatic caliber as well, which makes it the perfect combination of Japanese reliability paired with distinct Italian style. All in all, the Potenza R8821108029 makes for an intriguing choice if you’re looking for a dress watch with a bit more panache and style.

MASERATI EPOCA R8873618005 MEN'S WATCH

 

For those who liked the look of the Epoca but wanted something a little more, something a little more suitable for everyday wear but still look good with a suit, this is the one for you; The Epoca chronograph. It takes the distinct case and bracelet design of the Epoca, from the swooping lugs to the Milanese mesh bracelet and adds a chronograph complication into the mix. And what we’ve ended up with is probably one of the best and most iconic looking dress chronographs in the market at this price range. Replacing the roman numerals with baton markers (which was a good call, making the dial less cluttered), and leaving space for 3 simple chronograph and 24-hour indicator sub-dials, the Epoca is a properly handsome timepiece. If you’re looking for a classic, simple chronograph watch, then the Epoca chronograph is hard to beat.

MASERATI ELEGANZA R8871630002 MEN'S WATCH

 

If the name didn’t already give away the potential design of this watch then we might need to school you on catching verbal cues, but that’s for another time. The Maserati Elegenza chronograph is, surprise, surprise a properly elegant looking timepiece. With a simple slim case, small crowns and pushers and unobtrusive lugs, it is as simple as simple can be when it comes to chronograph case designs. The dial is really where the beauty of this watch truly shines, with simple sub-dials for the chronograph and the 24-hour indicators, applied indexes and a minute chapter ring lining the periphery of the dial, it sounds like the perfect recipe for a nice dress chronograph. But unless you’ve been reading this article with your eyes closed, you would’ve noticed that the dial is in a gorgeous shimmering sunburst blue that almost fades into an ombre towards 6 O’clock. All of this little design details when put together truly creates a beautifully elegant dress watch that subtly exudes the flair of Italian style that we love so much.

MASERATI POTENZA ANALOG QUARTZ R8851108015 MEN'S WATCH

 

The last of the Potenza series in our list and probably the most elegant, the Potenza R8851108015 quartz is the dressiest of the bunch (of Potenzas). Coming in at 42mm, the watch sits nicely on the wrist and thanks to the quartz movement powering it, is a relatively slim watch too, easily disappearing under a cuff. Matching the iconic and unique case design with a muted time only dial gives the watch all the flair and subtlety it needs to stand out from the crowd. The dial is finished in a tapisserie pattern, with applied indexes and of course, the whopping great trident logo dominating the center. It sounds ostentatious, but it isn’t. And that’s the beauty of Italian style, making something that should be flashy and ostentatious into something that is tasteful and overall, well put together, just like their suits. The blue alligator textured calf leather strap complements the watch nicely and will sit happily on your wrist whether you’re rocking it with a Valentino suit or casually with a pair of denim and a T-shirt. You’ll be hard pressed to find another watch in this price range that is as striking and well built than the Potenza quartz.

  • Protected by durable mineral crystal glass
  • Movement Type - Quartz

MASERATI TRADIZIONE CHRONOGRAPH R8871625001 MEN'S WATCH

 

The Maserati Tradizione Chronograph is a men’s dress chronograph that features a gorgeous matte chocolate brown dial, matching brown leather straps and a gold PVD stainless steel case too. The watch features a relatively simple and elegant case coming in at 42mm in diameter and the dial, though crowded, is still highly legible and distinct as well. With 2 subdials for the chronograph and another for the 24-hour indicator, along with a date window, it certainly sounds like there’s a lot going on, on the dial making it seem crowded and messy. But it is executed very nicely by Maserati, with their flair for Italian style, they’ve turned a complicated timepiece into something that is subtle and elegant without making it look dull. Power comes from a reliable Seiko quartz VR3G, ensuring a smooth and generally worry-free experience with the watch. If you’re looking for a gold, reasonably priced dress watch that stands out, you’ll certainly get one with the Tradizione.

MASERATI RICORDO R8871625004 MEN'S WATCHES

 

For the last watch on the list we have possibly one of my favourite dress watches we’ve looked at today; The Maserati Ricordo. Like the Tradizione we’ve covered previously, it’s a dress chronograph, but unlike the Tradizione, this one has a more conventional sub dial layout. The watch features a stark glossy black dial, with 3 sub dials for the chronograph and 24-hour indicator (with a flash of red on the ‘24’ for an added pop of colour), skeletonized baton hands and skinny applied markers and numerals as well. I’m not the biggest fan of Arabic numerals on watches, or rather I’m very picky with the fonts used on Arabic numerals and how they add on to the personality of the watch. The numerals here are executed very nicely and add a sense of flair to the watch (that the Italians are so well known for) giving it a very unique look and personality. The elegantly simple rose-gold case with swooping lugs and black toned chronograph pushers once again adds a subtle hint of Italian style to the relatively simple timepiece. It is this sort of subtle yet effective styling cues that the Italians are so well known for in their fashion that really differentiates them from others, and the same can be found in the Ricordo too.
