That is the deep pool from which the Autodromo Group C attracts inspiration from. Maybe appropriately, the Group C will get a totally digital show, set below a flat sapphire crystal, inside a modern metal case. The watch is labeled the Group C Sport Chrono below the display with a graphic that appears like one thing you’d discover alongside the door sill of a late ‘80s racing automotive. The Autodromo brand is positioned on the left and the accent colours are supposed to ship most affect. Impressed by the colourful wing mirrors of Group C automobiles (which helped differentiate them at a distance), the pushers and dial accents are rendered in vivid hues of inexperienced, purple, and yellow.
The case itself I’d describe as boxy stylish, offering squarish angles and mild slopes. The form is supposed to recall the aerodynamic types of automobiles just like the 962C and C9, a form which is itself represented on the caseback as one thing of an amalgam of those automobiles. The case measures 36mm throughout and tapers to a sq. finish that welcomes a 20mm rubber strap. Measuring 10mm in thickness and 72 grams in weight, it’s a simple watch to put on whereas offering extra heft than you may anticipate.
Total the aesthetic of this watch is sudden and putting, and just like the Group B, its inspiration is probably not instantly clear, and that’s a part of the fantastic thing about these watches. The usage of a digital module might come as a shock, but it surely falls according to the final structure and theme of the watch. Performance of the buttons is listed on the caseback, with the same old slew of issues (stopwatch, alarm, calendar, and many others.), so it’s clearly helpful.
The Group C is on the market from Autodromo as of at this time for the worth of $475 throughout 4 completely different colorways: naked chrome steel brushed with yellow accents; grey plated chrome steel brushed with inexperienced accents; DLC black plated chrome steel brushed with purple and yellow accents; and yellow cerakote with black and yellow accents. Maintain an eye fixed out for our hands-on impressions of those watches coming quickly. Autodromo
