Autodromo Motoring Watches

Bradley Price is a man after our own hearts. Founder of Automobiliac and life-long car nut, he has just added to his retro motorsport resume with the release of a series of timepieces inspired by the golden age of motoring.

The collection includes three watches – the Veloce, Brescia and Vallelunga. Each watch houses Swiss Made Ronda movement in a 42mm brushed stainless case and is finished with sapphire-coated K1 glass and a leather strap. Quality construction combines manly motoring materials like stainless steel and leather to produce confident, elegant timepieces that are as well put together as they look.

The design takes inspiration from the instrument panels of vintage Italian racers to create timepieces that celebrate classic motorsport with a sophisticated and mature look. Each design is distinct and seems to recall different periods or aspects of motoring and motor racing, which makes for a balanced and varied collection.

I love the clean, sophisticated and striking look of the Vallelunga with the white dial, though something should be said for the Veloce, which looks to rev to a very healthy 13,000. This, I imagine, is the timing equivalent of going up to 11.
