Autodromo and Hodinkee, two leading brands in the world of automotive and watchmaking, have come together to create an exceptional limited-edition collection that is sure to turn heads. The Group B Rallysport Chronograph collection comprises five distinct references, each featuring a racing-inspired design that pays homage to the legendary Group B rally cars of the 1980s.
One of the most striking aspects of this collection is the wide range of color options available for the dials. Each dial is inspired by a different Group B vehicle from the era, giving collectors the opportunity to choose the color that best represents their favorite rally car. The dials are housed within a 40mm case that boasts a bi-metallic construction, with the case made from titanium and the lug chassis and bracelet crafted from stainless steel. This combination of materials not only gives the watches a sleek and modern look but also ensures they are lightweight and comfortable to wear.
The Swiss-made Sellita SW 510 M B movement powers the chronographs in this collection, providing 63 hours of power reserve and 5 ATM water resistance. The hexagonal pushers, a nod to Autodromo’s classic aesthetics, add a modern touch to the watches and make them easy to operate.
One of the most exciting things about this collection is that each colorway is produced in a limited batch of 100 pieces, with individually numbered casebacks. This makes these watches even more special and ensures that they will be highly sought after by collectors and enthusiasts.
Overall, the Hodinkee x Autodromo Group B Rallysport Chronograph collection is a stunning collaboration that seamlessly blends the worlds of automotive and watchmaking. With its unique design, exceptional construction, and limited production run, it is a must-have for anyone who loves cars or watches. The watches retail for $1,495 USD each and are exclusively available at Hodinkee’s online shop. Check out the gallery above to see all five versions in detail.
