Carl Fogarty is a motorbike legend.
He possesses an astonishing turn of speed and nerves of steel. We're proud to be working with him for the launch of our new brand.
Where speed meets time in a remarkable tribute.
We’re proud to introduce the very first collaboration between FORZO and motorbike legend Carl Fogarty, known all over the world just as ‘Foggy’. This unique and eye-catching range of watches was created to celebrate Foggy’s lap record speed of 123mph around the iconic Isle of Man TT circuit: the ultimate test of precision and bravery.
Sitting within our 'Gridster' watch collection, the Foggy watches are 41mm in diameter and feature a solid 316L Stainless Steel case with an integrated bracelet. It is available with Automatic 3 Hand or Mecha-Quartz Chronograph movement options.
We first met Carl last year, united by a passion for watches and speed. It didn’t take long for the idea of making a watch together to form, with perfect timing as the FORZO brand was just being launched.
Carl was closely involved in the project from the very beginning, designing exactly the type of watch he liked, and choosing a number of themes reflected in the overall style.
He wanted a larger watch, with a classic dial design and an uncomplicated look, making it easy to read and underlining the quality synonymous with FORZO. From there, we produced a number of prototypes that were gradually refined as the whole process went on, with Carl making a series of refinements along the way to achieve exactly what he wanted. The resulting limited edition is a clean and imposing watch, which personifies power, speed, and reliability – just like Carl himself.
"I’ve always loved watches, so it’s a real privilege for me to be involved in the design of my own watch for the first time in my life. I thought I’d done a lot of things over the years, but this has been a great new experience for me. One of the things that I wanted to commemorate was my 123mph lap at the TT, so this is a really exciting project. I’m going to be keeping the very first watch of each limited edition, and we’re hoping to create many more in the future." - Carl Fogarty
He holds four world superbike titles and one endurance title among many other victories, one of his most impressive achievements is his record-breaking lap at the iconic Isle of Man TT circuit, at an incredible 123mph.
The courage needed to thread the eye of the needle, protected by only sheer talent and just a sliver of leather, is beyond belief.
Since then, his popularity has been proved by an entirely different type of victory: winning ‘I’m a celebrity, get me out of there’ on TV. Having been synonymous with Ducati in the past, these days Carl is a brand ambassador for CCM motorcycles – a bespoke British bike brand – while FORZO is his first watch collaboration.
