The world of motor racing is an action packed and thrilling one, filled with engineering design features that definitely lends itself to watchmaking and there are few doing it better so far as automotive inspired timepieces are concerned than the guys at Autodromo – a fact well and truly born out by their latest collection, the stunning Monoposto Chronograph.
Autodromo focus on delivering small batches of top quality timepieces and you know you’re getting impeccable quality with each of their collections but their Monoposto series of chronograph watches really does represent an elevation in the calibre of their timepieces and they are breathtaking to say the least.
The term ‘Monoposto’ is Italian for single seat and is used as the inspiration for this first class new collection of watches from Autodromo that recalls a simpler time in the world of Grand Prix racing, when the only data the driver had at their disposal was contained in a few oversized dials on the dash. It is these instruments which form the basis for the design of these magnificent Autodromo Monoposto Watches.
One of the most striking aesthetic features of these Monoposto Watches from Autodromo is inspired by how mechanics in the golden age of racing would often apply a strip of red tape, or a line of red paint on the glass of the rev counter, to ensure that the driver knew his engine’s limit at a glance – needless to say, this is no longer required in today’s race cars and is a nice touch for this timepiece.
This re-release of one of the watchmaker’s most iconic timepieces, which went on to become something of a cult classic in horology circles, is long overdue and for any man with a love of vintage racing and wonderfully well crafted watches, the Monoposto is the collection for you.
