Autodromo’s Group B has to be one of the most original watches available today, let alone alone one of the most original “microbrand” watches. Its a timepiece that was clearly crafted by someone know thoroughly understands design, and, for that matter, someone who thoroughly understands cars, and the relationship between cars and watches.
There have been numerous iterations of the Group B since its debut, including the original, which shipped on an Autodromo pull-through strap, and last fall’s bracelet version, available in several dial colors. Autodromo even did a special edition of that particular watch with Worn & Wound, with a cool, pale grey dial with electric blue accents.
But this new version, in Corsica Blue, may be the coolest Group B of them all. It shares the same specs with the recent bracelet version (39mm case, titanium and steel construction, automatic Miyota 9015 movement), but the dial screams at you — it’s a wild, sky-blue color with neon pink indices and matching hands. If this isn’t the coolest summer watch we’ve seen come across our desks in a while, we’re prepared to eat our collective hat.
The Autodromo Group B is available beginning today for $975.
