The 1968 is an ode to the experimental chronographs of the 1960’s that were inspired by macho automobiles and racing culture. It was an era where bold layouts, bright colors and funky case shapes were common, attempting to portray the bravado of racing through their designs. The 1968 is a actually based on a prototype watch from that period that never made it to production. The single register at three is set in stark contrast to the otherwise minimal dial. An outer ring with bright red accents gives it an undeniably aggressive edge.
The 1968 is powered by the Miyota 6S20 caliber. This Japanese Quartz movement features a chronograph complication with a center 1/20 second hand, a small-seconds at three and an approximate battery life of 3 years.
The watch is accompanied with two straps (one leather, one nylon) and a canvas strap roll. Limited edition of 1968 pieces.
