It is with great sadness that we learn of the death of our partner John Surtees on March 10th, 2017.
Between 1956 and 1960, John Surtees won seven World Championships and six Isle of Man TTs on 350cc and 500cc MV Agusta motorcycles. Stepping from bikes and into Formula One cars, he drove for Lotus, BRM, Cooper and Honda and then, from 1963, for Ferrari. After winning the Nürburgring and Monza 1000km races in Enzo’s sports cars, he took the Formula One World Championship in 1964 in a Ferrari 158 making him the only man to win World Championships on two and four wheels.
Inspired by JOHN SURTEES‘ exceptional motorsport career and life, we created the JOHN SURTEES EDITION of mechanical Swiss watches in 2014.
An amazing career and life has come to an end.
All of us here at Scalfaro send our heartfelt condolences to his family.
