Any true automotive enthusiast knows the name "Vallelunga," but for those that don’t, it is a challenging road circuit designed by Italian racing legend Piero Taruffi. It is located 20 miles outside of Rome and was the site of many thrilling races in the 1960s and 1970s, featuring all of the legendary Italian marques. Knowing that, it is no surprise that Autodromo has released a chronograph that carries this name.
The new Vallelunga is a beautifully minimalist watch inspired by racing tachometers used in many Italian Prototype and Grand Prix racing cars of late 1960s and early 1970s. It is powered by a robust Swiss Made Ronda Quartz 5020.B movement. It features a stopwatch, 30 minute counter, and big date calendar window. It will be offered in Black over Black or White over Stainless and will be priced at $550.
