AUTODROMO Watches – Veloce, Brescia and Vallelunga Collections

The world of Autodromo is the creative vision of founder Bradley Price, an industrial designer who set out to craft unique products to express the spirit of motoring.

Based in Italy, Officine Autodromo was founded to recapture a romantic era of motoring.  Inspired by dashboard gauges from vintage Italian sports cars, Autodromo timepieces recall a golden age of motoring when driving required style, panache, and perhaps a little bit of danger. Autodromo blends a contemporary minimalist design sensibility with mid-century vintage character. The result is a watch for the discerning individual who is equally at home in past and present.

Autodromo watches and accessories draw aesthetic inspiration from the world of mid-century auto racing. Its products have a vintage feel, alloyed with a clean, uncluttered modernist design philosophy. Each new product is conceived as an object that might have existed in the past, but is equally at home in the world of today.

Only the finest quality materials and the best Swiss Made movements are deemed suitable to go into an Autodromo motoring watch. Production is restricted to small batches to ensure the standards of excellence.

Each piece, crafted in small batches, features a Swiss Made Ronda movement inside a sleek, 42mm brushed stainless steel case and K1 Glass crystal with sapphire coating.

Every detail has been carefully considered, from genuine leather watch straps, perforated to recall the look and feel of vintage car upholstery, to the beautifully appointed gift box and individually numbered aluminum warranty card.

The current collection includes three exceptional models: VELOCE, BRESCIA & VALLELUNGA.

BRESCIA
For nearly 50 years, Europe’s most difficult and fearsome road race was known as the Mille Miglia. Its serpentine 1000 mile route encircled all of Northern Italy, but it always started and ended in the same ancient town in the Northern Italian alpine foothills. The name of this town is Brescia.

The Brescia watch speaks to time-honoured elegance and simplicity. Its clean, understated look is the perfect complement to a tailored Italian suit. MSRP – $465.

VALLELUNGA
Vallelunga is a beautifully minimalist watch inspired by racing tachometers used in many Italian Prototype and Grand Prix racing cars of late 1960s and early 1970s. Located 20 miles outside of Rome, Vallelunga is a challenging road circuit designed by Italian racing legend Piero Taruffi. It was the site of many thrilling races in the 1960s and 1970s, featuring all of the legendary Italian marques.

VELOCE
