FINDING THE HOLY GRAIL
Finding an original piece of Lamborghini Miura was not an easy task. Hence, from the very beginning of the conception of our watch and the first drawings, we have been looking all over for it. After more than a year of intense research, we finally found our grail near Avignon (France), a piece of aluminum separating the V12 from the burned body of a 1969 Miura P400S. After countless phone calls and emails to our network, we were able to find the way to this car and its brilliant restorer Remi Leduc.
THE FIERY PAST OF THE MIURA
This 1969 Miura P400 S was hit by flames several years ago, a fate unfortunately common to this model due to the arrangement of the carburetors above the spark plugs and ignition. The AJ-P400's anodized black dial and smoked case-back glass bear witness to the car's fiery past, paying subtle homage to it.
A UNIQUE CONCEPT
Our watches were born from the desire to offer our members the opportunity to acquire a unique piece of automotive history. The emblematic Lamborghini Miura, which has fueled our passions since its creation, embodies audacity and elegance... Values that have guided the development of this AJ-P400 collection.
The AJ-P400 pays tribute to the timeless design of the Miura through its composition and references. This model offers a 45-hour power reserve displayed at 6 o'clock and a high-quality brushed & polished steel case. The patina of the dial reminds its owner at every glance that he wears a legend on his wrist!
The design process was crucial and required two years of hard work, and several essential prototyping phases with our designers. Our main goal is to achieve a perfect balance between the Miura's taut and harmonious aesthetic while emphasizing its aggressive and rebellious essence.
