Carl Fogarty’s exclusive and limited-edition watch collection, in collaboration with Forzo, has launched on Kickstarter. The brand-new partnership with the freshly-established British watch brand was announced in January.
Former World Superbike Champion and star of the popular ITV Jungle celeb series, is hopeful that the new Forzo watches will take off, acting as brand ambassador. To date about £9000 of the £123,000 goal has been raised. Why it should take 123 grand to produce a batch of Seiko quartz and Miyota movement automatics remains a mystery.

His all-new watch range takes inspiration from the great moments in his illustrious motorbike racing career, including a record-breaking 1992 TT lap at an unforgettable average speed of 123mph. Appropriately enough, the first watch he has created together with Forzo is called the “123mph” range – and it comes in a variety of colours and specifications.
Verdict: You need to be a megafan to buy into this plan. Average spec watch for £630-£1000.
