Exquisite Autodromo Stradale Marks a New Chapter
Tuesday marked the one month anniversary of the proud unveiling of the Autodromo Stradale at the Concorso Italiano during Monterey Car Week.
Autodromo’s newest design is inspired by the dash gauges found on Italian sports cars of the late 1950s, and features a multi-layered dial. Beneath the domed sapphire crystal, the hour indexes are applied to a transparent glass ring, which floats over the colored dial below for a three-dimensional effect. The custom designed leather strap references the luxurious automotive interiors of the time. The Autodromo Stradale watch is available in three brilliant color combinations: cream dial with brown strap, black dial with burgundy strap, and gray dial with blue strap.
Powered by a twenty-four jewel Japanese-made automatic movement, the Autodromo Stradale is exquisitely finished and the movement displayed behind a sapphire exhibition caseback. As with all of their watches, the Autodromo Stradale arrives packaged like a gem in wrapping that evokes a road trip in Northern Italy circa 1960, complete with vintage-inspired map.
“We created the Autodromo Stradale to make an emotional connection to a golden period of motoring,” says Bradley Price, founder of Officine Autodromo. “The design inspiration came from the iconic age of GT cars. It was a time where Grand Touring cars blended outright performance with a high level of luxury, comfort and style. The Autodromo Stradale watch is designed to encapsulate these qualities and provide a vessel by which the owner can connect to that time period and that feeling when he or she wears the watch. It’s the ultimate watch for the gentleman driver.”
This is Autodromo’s second watch to feature an automatic mechanical movement, and it follows on the success of the sold out, limited edition Monoposto, which is already achieving collector status. The Autodromo Stradale is the next permanent model in the Autodromo collection, and marks a new chapter in Autodromo’s motoring story.
