The Autodromo Monoposto

Autodromo introduces their first mechanical watch, the Monoposto. The limited edition timepiece features a Miyota 821A self-winding movement with calendar in a 43mm stainless steel case. Inspired by the single-seater Italy grand prix racing cars from the 1950’s, the polished roller buckles resembles the hood straps of a vintage racing car.  The red line inside the proprietary domed crystal is derived from a common practice that mechanics used in the past when they painted a red line on the gauges to alert the driver when to shift. 250 pieces will be released for each colorway at $875.  Nice price for a nice watch!
