Autodromo celebrates the dawn of the Digital Age with the Group C watch. The clean, slab-sided shape of the case echoes the rational aerodynamic forms of cars such as the Porsche 962C and the Sauber C9. The brightly colored pushers reference the fluorescent-hued mirrors of Group C cars that allowed them to be differentiated at a distance during races such as the Le Mans 24 Hours.

A chamfered sapphire crystal reveals a simple black and white LCD module with blue EL backlight that will take you back to the simplicity of a time when this basic tool was the proto-"smart watch." The Group C watch can time laps (including split times), display the time and date with micro precision, and has an alarm function. A reversible custom molded FKM rubber strap holds it to your wrist, and 20mm lugs mean you can swap in any of our leather straps for fun.

The Group C Era of endurance racing from 1982-1993 saw the evolution of the sports racing car from an analog, primarily aluminum racing car into the digital, primarily composite racing car we know today. The cutting edge materials and computer systems propelling astronauts into space were finding their applications in motorsport for the first time. Aerodynamic principles of ground effects which had made their first faltering steps in the late 1970s were now being refined and developed in wind tunnels of major manufacturers creating a balance of downforce and driveability that was unheard of just a few years earlier. Turbocharging revolutionized engine development, and CAD design took over from the drafting table resulting in dynamic new forms that became some of the most iconic racing cars in history.

About Autodromo

Since their debut in 2011, Autodromo has created a tightly focused array of beautifully designed and engineered timepieces for the automotive-minded watch enthusiast. From the NY headquarters of founder and chief designer Bradley Price, Autodromo’s watches bleed mid-century motoring style, with an emphasis on the classic feel of European motorsports. Finishing is key to this stylish ethos, with Autodromo models often featuring engineering, design and finishing outshining watches costing several times as much. Standout models include the Stradale line, meant to capture the ethos of 1950s Italian sports cars; the Monoposto series, translating the forms of early Formula 1 racing gauges into a stylish and beautifully made work of art for the wrist; and the Group B, which takes the aggressive high-tech forms of the fire-breathing Group B off road rally cars of the 1980s and melds them into a razor-sharp modern sports watch.
