SCATOLA DEL TEMPO REWARDS OLIVER STONE​
Honored in Los Angeles the legendary director
Scatola del Tempo, the prestigious Italian company and creator of rotating watch holders, has recognized director Oliver Stone for the quality of his films and his social commitment.

OliverStone Light.jpg Stone received the award in Los Angeles during the screening of the documentary South of the Border organized by Italians in movies and American Cinemateque. South of the Border (2009), is a documentary focused on bringing to light the positive aspects of the left-wing governments in South America, particularly Hugo Chavez in Venezuela. Oliver Stone is a three-time Oscar winner; his directed films have been nominated for 31 Academy Awards, including eight for acting, six for screen writing, and three for directing. Stone has cemented himself a position among the legends of Hollywood.

SCATOLA DEL TEMPO

Scatola del Tempo originates at the end of the ‘80s, thanks to the vision of a collector, Sandro Colarieti, who sought watch holders worthy of the quality of his collection. He decided to create his own, employing expert craftsmen and first-rate materials. After having produced a small series, for himself and as a homage to his friend, he started receiving commissions from other collectors and from producers. Thus, Scatola del Tempo was born, today appreciated and known worldwide with its very own, special idea of what constitutes a watch case. In 1990 rotating watch holders saw the light for the first time, designed to guarantee to maintain automatic watches in charge, so as to keep not just the time, but also the date. Sandro Colarieti then created the 1RT model, the prototype for a long series which enjoyed an immediate success, to the point that it was also used by some of the greatest Swiss Houses of Horology. For instance, Patek Philippe has endorsed such devices for its own models for over 15 years. The watch winders are equipped with a high precision micro-motor and controlled by a micro-processor. They can rotate both clockwise and anti-clockwise, keeping any automatic movement within the device in full charge for over a year. The engines are Swiss produced but the final assembly takes place in Italy, likewise the quality control on finishing materials and the functioning of mechanical parts.

A great heritage has been left behind by Sandro Colarieti as well as a hefty responsibility for the future. In order to raise its international profile Scatola del Tempo is counting on a series of prestigious events, such as those attended in 2007 for the 50th anniversary of the Festival dei Due Mondi in Spoleto, with the ceremony awarding Andy Garcia, Terry Gilliam and Francis Menotti and the participation of Julia Roberts during the American Cinemateque Award. Meanwhile, in 2008, Scatola has already rewarded George Lucas, Forest Whitaker, Steven Spielberg, Gabriele Muccino, Michele Placido, and, in 2009, Dino De Laurentiis, Clive Owen and Giuseppe Tornatore. In 2010, Gabriele Salvatores, Robert De Niro, John Turturro and Oliver Stone.
