Autodromo Prototipo Chronographs

OK, so there were no in-dash GPS systems or Big Gulp-accommodating cup holders with the cars of the 60s and 70s, but any buff worth his Armor All will tell you that era was a magical one for the auto racing scene.

Officine Autodromo’s new Prototipo Chronograph vintage watches tap into those days gone by with their styling, featuring stainless steel barrel-shaped cases, integrated lugs, and perforated Italian leather straps. But perhaps the key bullet point here is the Seiko Meca-Quartz movement, a combination of quartz and mechanical technologies that keep the prices of these timepieces reasonable ($625), while also giving them that mechanical watch feel. Slap one on, hop in a Camaro Z28, and party like it’s 1969. [Purchase]
