A new range of economical timepieces that celebrate the spirit of vintage Italian racing
Most of the timepieces that we talk about in this section are more often than not, costlier than even a Hyundai Eon. But the timepieces that we are talking about today can be bought for the price of a smartphone. Produced by a new Italian watchmaker called Offi cine Autodromo, these timepieces celebrate the spirit of vintage Italian racing by borrowing its theme, instead of signing collaboration with any of the celebrated Italian carmakers. So what you have are watches that look very similar to the clocks on the Old Italian racecars!
Offi cine Autodromo has revealed three models in this lineup – the Veloce, the Brescia and the Valelunga. The word ‘Veloce’ means ‘speed’ in Italian language. This watch is inspired by a classic 1960s rev-counter and features distinctive redline markings on the dial face.
