Autodromo Stradale

It’s time for your daily Italian lesson. Today’s word is “Stradale,” which in means “road going.” Of course it also means “beautiful new watch from the folks at Autodromo.”

The inspiration here comes from the dashboard instruments from Italian sports berlinettas of the late 1950s and early 1960s, with a multi-layered dial that dares you to stare at it for hours. Under the domed sapphire crystal sits a glass hour ring that hovers over the main minutes dial while a 24 jewel Japan-Made automatic movement keeps things ticking. The custom designed leather strap nods to the leather interiors of days gone by. Choose from a black dial with burgundy strap, cream dial with brown strap, or grey dial with navy blue strap.
