If watching the Olympics has you itching to hit the track for some 100-meter heats of your own, then Tracksmith has you covered — at least when it comes to timing your feats. The independent running brand has teamed up with walking watch encyclopedia Eric Wind to curate a collection of vintage track & field stopwatches that will make you look like you know what you’re doing even if your 100m dash takes 45 seconds.
The Tracksmith x Wind Vintage Track & Field Stopwatch Collection includes 11 vintage mechanical timepieces from some of the world’s most prestigious brands. There’s a Breitling 301 from the 1970s, a 1950s Omega (Omega has been the official timekeeper of the Olympic Games for decades), and a whopping six watches from chronograph specialist Heuer. The Heuer selections include one made for Abercrombie & Fitch in the 1960s, a U.S. Government model likely used for military training in the 1970s, and a complex jumping hour model, also from the 1970s. The stopwatches range in price from $190 to $390, and all include a customized Tracksmith x Wind Vintage blue leather pouch.
