Few humans have driven a Ford GT40, a Porsche 908 or 917, Ferrari 312 BP, or BMW 3.0 CSL—let alone won races in all five iconic racecars. Brian Redman has. To honor the famed British driver’s many successes, Autodromo is releasing a Brian Redman limited edition of its sturdy Prototipo model. Specifically, the watch pays homage to Redman’s surprise 1969 win at the treacherous Nurburgring. In a back-up, old model Porsche 908/2 (the original was wrecked in practice), Redman stormed through 170 corner in the Eifel mountains to win the day, and the car’s red, white, and green paint scheme adorn the watch face. In a personal touch, Redman signed each of the booklets that comes with the limited edition of 500. [$775 at http://www.autodromo.com/]
