At the beginning of 2023, BandWerk secured a series of special lots at various auctions: a total of four used Formula 1 tires of the P-Zero Yellow type, which were used in Grand Prix races from 2012 to 2016.
Thanks to a specialized and meticulous processing method, BandWerk has successfully transformed and revitalized the surface rubber of these racing tires.
The result is a strictly limited edition of 299 handcrafted watch bands that impress not only with their quality but also with their unique provenance. Each band carries the DNA of Formula 1, making it a must-have for both watch enthusiasts and motorsport aficionados alike.

One Edition – Two Variants
Our Grand Prix Collection showcases two captivating variants: Choose between a band from the dynamic tread or the distinctive sidewall of the tire. Each piece in our collection is unique – discover your personal favorite.
Option 1: A watch band made from the tread of a Formula 1 tire. This unique material has not only touched the asphalt of some of one of the world's most famous racetracks but has also experienced the intense heat of racing firsthand.
The special, slightly melted texture of the band is a testament to the intense laps on the track, giving it a distinctive character. Choose this band to feel the fascination and dynamism of racing right on your wrist.
Alternatively, we offer a watch band made from the tire's sidewall. Here, the rubber is smooth and features – depending on the cut – a unique print pattern that always includes a small part of the brand logo and the characteristic design of the tire's side. Each watch band in this series is unique, ensuring that no two are alike.
We are proud to present an extraordinary edition that stands out not only for its unique history but also for the exclusivity of its materials.
Due to the rarity and high value of the authentic Formula 1 tires used, this edition is priced higher compared to our previous collections.
Starting Friday, January 26, 2024, at 2 PM ET / 11 AM PT, these unique pieces of motorsport history will be available for you. Seize your chance to own a part of one of our most sensational special editions to date.
