Motorsports and watchmaking have been closely associated with each other since the beginning of the competitive automobile events in the mid 19th century. For many watch brands, this alliance has remained an integral part of their ongoing tradition. Since the arrival of wrist chronographs, this segment has become more popular.
Presently, we can find various types of chronograph watches that are especially dedicated to the motor-racing world. Some are traditionally styled while a number of models come with futuristic designs.
Wryst is an established player in the luxury sports watch segment. Known for revolutionary designs, it offers meticulously crafted automatic and quartz timepieces. For the motorsports enthusiasts and professionals, the brand has recently launched two new chronographs, namely MS 620 and MS 630.
These new references belong to the men’s racing watches Motors range. As far the design part is concerned, both the new models boast the emblematic curved silhouette.
The barrel-shaped watches are much sought-after by enthusiasts from all over the world. Representing only a minuscule percentage in total production due to the complexity involved in their manufacturing, these types of wristwatches maintain a distinct status.
Except the Ultimate series, all Wryst collections (Force, Elements, Motors and Racer) offer timepieces with a distinct curved structural design. For these new Motors watch models, the brand has opted for a 50mm diameter case made of solid stainless steel.
Demonstrating an ingenious and sensible construction, both the new models come with most of the distinctive characteristics associated with the company. Foremost, the skilfully designed and crafted exteriors not only provide the watch a unique look, they also ensure the best possible wearing experience.
Apart from the ground-breaking design, the built quality is also exceptional. Thanks to the use of high-grade steel, these models are physically robust, reliable and corrosion-resistant. The extended side-edges of the case protect the operating elements (crown and pushers) from the damages and inadvertent activation.
Each of the new Motors watches can be distinguished from their dials and straps. For instance, the man watch Wryst Motors MS620 spotlights a stunning white dial with red and black details. Moreover, this model comes with a flexible, dual-toned silicone strap with a black and red colour combination.
The second option, motorsport luxury mens watches Wryst Motors SX630, has a black dial with red and white details. Its distinct black carbon fibre leather strap with red stitching and edges gathers inspiration from the chequered flags used in the motor-racing events.
The dials of MS 620 and MS 630 evoke their evident connection to the high-performance vehicles. The distinguishing three-counter layout of these chronographs is inspired by the dash-boards of iconic sports-cars and bikes. The sizzling red-colour hands employed for chronograph and small-seconds function instantly remind the daring nature of high-speed racing.
Each timepiece is equipped with an innovative strap attachment system that ensures a seamless fitment and comfortable wearing. The brand also provides additional straps with each model.
These new chronographs are equipped with state-of-the-art quartz movements manufactured in Switzerland. Provided with a precise stopwatch function capable of calculating 1/10th of a second, the high-precision movement delivers optimum performance needed for timing high-speed competitive events as well as for daily activities.
These models come with an equally brilliant case-back. Made of stainless steel and secured with four screws, it reinforces the overall structure. Along with domed sapphire crystal glass and screw-in crown, it assures a remarkable water-resistance rating of 100 meters. Furthermore, the case-back with the distinctive spoke design takes inspiration from sports-car wheels.
Being a boutique brand, Wryst typically makes restricted number of timepieces for ensuring excellence and exclusiveness. Therefore, MS 620 and MS 630 models are limited to 75 pieces each. Each model costs $1,009, means that you are getting an excellent opportunity to acquire a superb racing chronograph in a reasonable price range.
In addition to these new references, other collections of luxury watches Wryst are also available for purchase on the official online boutique of the brand.
