Car racing and wrist watches are inextricably related. You can always find that most of the iconic watch makers have their names associated with the world’s major racetracks and racing events. The timepieces created keeping in mind with racing circuit are always accessible to elite group of customers as these products are highly expensive and produced in limited editions.
Today, flaunting a sports chronograph featuring the names of prestigious racetracks or inspired by the racing cars, needs huge amount of hard earned money. The young watch brand WATKINS has decided to race against this trend and extends the fascinating world of motor sports inspired timepieces to the customers by offering its watch collection in an affordable price range below $ 200.
Based in Vienna, Austria, WATKINS watch brand is promoted by P.Beer GmbH, a family-run business group traditionally associated with watch making industry. The first timepiece collection under WATKINS label takes its inspiration from the iconic race circuit 'The Glen', located in New York.
Another highlight is the fascinating three counter dial design featuring an innovative way to display date. The dual tone date window at 12’o clock is inspired by the colours of last America's Cup or last racing season: blue & red. The glare free dial features lumonva hands and indexes illuminate at night and are easily readable in completed darkness.
