Autodromo Unveils Vibrant Aqua Group B Series 2 Watch
The ’80s-inspired timepiece gets an eye-catching upgrade with a new blue dial and retro stainless steel bracelet.
Like something out of “Miami Vice” (or perhaps the dashboard of a rally car), Autodromo’s new Group B Series 2 Watch in Aqua Blue is the perfect blend of visually striking, past-meets-present design – and it’s yours for the taking for under a grand right now.
The just-launched Autodromo Group B Series 2 Watch carries forward the brand’s longstanding history of taking inspiration from classic cars, and turning those design details into instantly memorable watches. Auto history is a staple of the decade-old NY watch brand, and a perfect starting point for fast, streamlined watches.
The Group B Series 2 Watch in particular draws its name from 1980s Group B rally cars, which were sophisticated yet powerful and durable.
Those are all fitting qualities to give a watch that retails for $975 and yet looks more expensive than that, another bonus given that it’s powered by a Japanese-made Miyota 9015 automatic caliber movement for strength and precision.
The movement is made with 24 jewels and boasts a 42-hour power reserve, so you needn’t worry about falling behind — whether wearing this watch or swapping it out for another timepiece in your collection.
The details “under the hood,” so to speak, are impressive, but the vibrant aqua blue color is all ’80s in its own right, offset by strong, crisp dial markings in a striking orange.
It’s like looking at a streamlined speedometer, and with a refined, throwback-oriented 39mm case design, it’s got enough going for it to work as both a sport watch and a dress watch.
The stainless steel bracelet itself is another automobile-inspired design feature, using a slatted, integrated design for an ultra-sleek look that blends right in with the spring-bar lugs for as smooth a finish as you’re apt to find on a watch.
Other Group B Series 2 dials are available, like a bold white or orange option, but the Aqua Blue iteration of this much-loved Autodromo watch is a surefire way to stay ahead of the curve, literally, in the world of precision watchmaking and stylish design.
