You’re sitting outside your favorite cafe, coffee in one hand and your phone in the other. As you’re scrolling through and catching up on the timeline, a finely tuned sports car hugs the corner from across the way. You give it a glance as it drives by, but that glance immediately turns into a full-on gaze until the car disappears into the distance. We’ve all been there before. It’s easy to ogle at something that’s distinct and beautifully made. In most cases for a sports car, vintage or modern depending on the model, they don’t look like your average vehicle on the road, so when one does pass by, the natural reaction is to acknowledge and appreciate.
In a way, the Formex Reef GMT elicits that same exact feeling. Its case profile is not the common round shape you see on a regular basis, so naturally it immediately grabs your attention. And once you’re locked in, it’s the meticulous details and innovative design touches that’ll keep you there. The foundation of Formex’s design is inspired by Raphael Granito’s (CEO & Co-founder) enthusiasm for motorsports and high performance racing cars. His passion for both watchmaking and automotive engineering are clearly apparent throughout the entire collection and more specifically with the Formex Reef GMT.
