Autodromo, the renowned watchmaker, has teamed up with Hodinkee, the leading authority in luxury watches, to release a limited-edition timepiece that pays homage to the iconic Group B era of motorsports. The Autodromo Group B Rallysport Chronograph Limited Edition for Hodinkee is a stunning representation of the era’s untethered spirit, both in form and function.
The watch features a new Swiss-made mechanical chronograph movement, which adds racing-inspired functionality to the Group B series. It boasts a striking monochromatic color palette in various shades of green and a dark grey IP-coated case, celebrating some of the most successful racing liveries. The minimalist yet distinct color scheme imparts a chic and contemporary design aesthetic that is both elegant and legible in both daylight and darkness.
One of the most striking features of this timepiece is its unique bi-metallic case construction, which combines high-quality titanium with a lightweight stainless steel lug chassis. This construction gives the watch a pleasant heft while resisting any bulkiness, allowing the case to sink into the wrist for a comfortable yet luxurious feel.
The Autodromo Group B Rallysport Chronograph is equipped with a superb Swiss-made Sellita caliber SW 510 M B, making it a hand-wound chronograph. Despite all the added functionality, this watch is just slightly thicker than its predecessors at 13.4mm and sports a highly-wearable diameter of 40mm. It also boasts a power reserve of up to 63 hours and water resistance of 50 meters, making it an excellent companion for any adventure.
The Autodromo Group B Rallysport Chronograph Limited Edition Collection for Hodinkee is a highly-collectible timepiece, with only 500 units available, just 100 units per colorway. This watch represents a tremendous value almost unheard of at its modest price tag of $1,495. The Group B series has a storied history of selling out fast, so this is one you’ll want to get your hands on while you still can. With its exquisite design and superb functionality, the Autodromo Group B Rallysport Chronograph is a must-have for any watch enthusiast.
