In 1982, the FIA introduced a new set of regulations regarding both sports car racing and rallying, known as Group B, which required manufacturers to build only 200 road ready version of a vehicle model in order to use said models in a racing format. It was this golden age of racing which Autodromo drew inspiration from when designing their line of Group B wristwatches. With the Evoluzione, they’ve taken the next step in the natural progression of the line.
Featuring a CNC milled aerospace aluminum lug chassis–lighter by 7 grams than their counterparts–these watches are anodized with an intentional lack of hand-finishing. With Discommon engineered tool paths for the computer guided cutting heads, Autodromo sought to highlight the intricacies and raw beauty of each part. And each watch–with a limited run of 200 pieces each–comes with 4 interchangeable race livery straps. With an expected ship date of June 21st, the Evoluzione retails for $1,100. [Purchase]
