The Count Is On for Zegna’s Newest Watch

After teaming up last year to celebrate Ermenegildo Zegna’s centennial, the Italian fashion house has paired yet again with acclaimed Swiss watchmaker Girard-Perregaux, this time to release the new Monterubello Collection. Named after the founder Ermenegildo Zegna, who was designated Conte di Monterubello, the collection includes two new timepieces: the Solo Tempo, available in 18-karat white gold ($16,000) or rose gold ($14,800); and the 18-karat rose gold chronograph ($28,300), with timekeeping and stopwatch functions. Both styles have a 40 mm case on alligator straps with ’40s-era retro elements, recognizing the decade Ermenegildo Zegna was decreed a count. Girard-Perregaux also drew inspiration from a 19th-century pocket watch that belonged to the count’s father, Michelangelo Zegna, who was a horologist by trade. The watches will be available in select Ermenegildo Zegna stores internationally in mid-October. (www.zegna.com)
