PARMIGIANI FLEURIER TONDA GT
The Parmigiani Fleurier Tonda GT is a watch easily found at the racetrack or the boardroom (just switch out the bracelet for a rubber strap). The beauty of the guilloché decoration shines through on these dials, which have a big date aperture and a small seconds subdial at 6 o’clock. The 42mm case size and thin (11.2mm) profile make this a great for everyday wear.
OMEGA SPEEDMASTER MOONWATCH – “DARK SIDE OF THE MOON”
🎶And if your head explodes with dark forebodings too, I’ll see you on the dark side of the moon.🎶 Pink Floyd’s Nick Mason was a huge racing fan, and the Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch “Dark Side of the Moon” features a black zirconium oxide ceramic dial with striking 18K white gold “Moonwatch”-style hands and two ceramic subdials at 3 and 9 o’clock.
BLANCPAIN VILLERET QUANTIÈME COMPLET 8 JOURS
At 8 full days of power reserve, you would have enough juice to watch 8 complete Le Mans races standing still (by my math 💡). This red-gold Villeret also has a complete calendar and a gorgeous moonphase–all within a sleek 13mm case. I wouldn’t race cars wearing this watch, but I’d certainly wear it to the after-race party.
HERMES H08 – GRAPHENE
Want to be back in black at the track? This stunningly noir timepiece is made of a graphene composite and has a sunburst satin-brushed ceramic bezel with mirror-polished chamfers. It also has the manufacture movement H1837, black-gold treated dial and, of course, a strap in black rubber.
BREGUET TRADITION QUANTIÈME RÉTROGRADE 7597
The Breguet Tradition Quantième Rétrograde 7597 marks a bridge between Breguet’s rich, storied history and modern technical prowess. With a design inspired by souscription pocket watches made well before anyone had ever seen an automobile, the open worked design pays tribute to some of Breguet’s original pocket watches via exquisite hand finishing.
BREITLING TOP TIME B01 CLASSIC CARS – SHELBY COBRA
The AC / Shelby Cobra is one of the most iconic racecars ever made–just watch the recent Ford vs. Ferrari film. This Top Time Breitling pays a fitting tribute with the colors and emblem of its classic-car counterpart as well as a perforated leather racing strap, speed-measuring tachymeter scale and contrasting “squircle” subdials.
TISSOT PRX POWERMATIC 80 35MM
This Tissot sports an integrated bracelet and a unisex case size at 35MM. It offers the perfect balance of timeless appeal and modern craftsmanship with a high-quality steel case and a captivating blue dial, inspired by its renowned 1978 predecessor. The distinctive dial pattern adds an extra layer of elegance to the automatic model, and, if you look real close at the dial, you can see a waffle tire pattern.
BLANCPAIN FIFTY FATHOMS BATHYSCAPHE CHRONOGRAPHE FLYBACK
Listen, I can’t force in any racing tie-ins to this watch. It is, after all, a diver and a very prestigious one at that. This particular model comes with a green unidirectional satin-brushed ceramic bezel with green insert and Liquidmetal™ hour-markers. The showstopper though is the flyback chronograph, which measures a succession of elapsed times and eliminates superfluous operations.
HAMILTON KHAKI FIELD TITANIUM 38MM
The Hamilton Khaki Field Titanium 38mm has a century-long military heritage and has been featured in countless movies (the classic Big Fish to name one). But you’re much more likely to drive or race in this watch than storm a machine-gun nest (unless that’s your thing)! The smaller case size accentuates comfort and features Hamilton’s workhorse H-10 automatic movement.
BAUME & MERCIER CLIFTON 10699
If you squint your eyes and look at the dial of this B&M, you might see the hazy, twilight color of the Altamont Raceway or you might just see a COSC-certified masterpiece powered by a manufacture automatic calibre, Baumatic. This Clifton has a burgundy lacquered dial with a white crosshair in the center and rhodium-plated hands and indexes.
CARL F. BUCHERER MANERO PERIPHERAL PERPETUAL CALENDAR
Say “peripheral perpetual” five times fast! This Manero’s perpetual calendar keeps track of the exact month, date, and weekday. By the time you have to give this watch a date adjustment, cars will be flying. It’s also a COSC-certified chronometer that includes a moon phase with hand-engraved hemispheric white gold moons on aventurine.
