Few events combine precision, elegance, tradition, and endurance like the legendary Indianapolis 500 where split-second decisions spell the difference between victory and defeat. Alongside every great driver is a great vehicle that has been meticulously engineered to withstand every high-speed turn and close call pass as they speed their way toward the checkered flag.
Omologato® watches have long been tied as a trusted brand in the exciting world of car racing. For their first foray into the world of North American racing, Omologato® has crafted a watch that is just as powerful as it is elegant. The Indianapolis® Automatic combines the classical design flare Omologato® is well known for with the exquisite aesthetic of IndyCar racing. The design is a powerful mixture of traditional and classical design with a modern flair and state-of-the-art components.
The dial of the Indianapolis® Automatic resembles the speedometer of a race car. Silver letters are emblazoned against a stark black background contrasted only by the small date window tucked neatly in the three o’clock position. An orange second hand and matt silver retro-style minute and hour hands keep precise time. The design is enhanced with Super Luminova elements which give this watch a truly wonderful vintage flare. The dial and inner components are carefully encapsulated in a stainless steel turtle case and sapphire crystal glass that hearkens back to the seventies style Indycars this design was based on. The watch is secured with an Italian black leather wrist strap with orange stitching and fits comfortably around wrists of all sizes.
The inner components of the watch are just as meticulously crafted as the exterior design. The movements were designed with the same care that goes into building the engines of any race car with the delicate engineering of keeping precise time. The Indianapolis® Automatic features a Miyota 8215 Automatic with a two-step sweeping second hand, an impressive twenty-one jewel movement, and a vibration speed of 21,600 BPH. This watch was designed with durability and toughness in mind and features water resistance of 10 atm and is crafted from durable stainless steel.
The Indianapolis® Automatic is a truly exquisite watch worthy of the legendary race it commemorates. This extraordinary watch combines the classical timeless flare of a vintage timepiece with a modern touch and state-of-the-art delicately engineered components with durability designed to keep you looking great and on precise time no matter where the raceway of your life leads you.
