If you’re a motorhead, you have a head for more than just automotive gear. Watches, especially, are known to draw the attention—and the hard-earned money—of car enthusiasts and racers alike.
These watches are perfect for the race track, the job, or just a slow weekend at home.
Omega Speedmaster Racing Co-Axial Chronograph
From the brand that went to the moon, the Speedmaster Racing Co-Axial features a classic design, offers a tire-tread band as an option, and sports one of the best in-house, truly unique movements available for less than the price of a McQueen relic.
IWC Ingenieur Double Chronograph
If you’re a fan of F1 racing, this is a great choice. Balancing between the busy display of a complex chronograph and the sporty, go-anywhere look of a rugged digital watch, the split-seconds Ingenieur Double Chronograph is just at home at home as it is at the track.
Built in Detroit, just like many of America’s cars, this hand-crafted specimen is affordable, classic, and always ready for another lap.
It was good enough for Paul Newman. It’s good enough for you. And it’s sharp as hell.
TAG Heuer Carrera
There are a wide range of Carrera time pieces, including chronographs, flybacks, and more, so pick your favourite—and smile to yourself when you see the track’s lap clock is a TAG, too.
Tissot PRS 516 Extreme Automatic Chronograph
Based on a 1960s motorsport watch, this is one that won’t break the bank (as much) but still offers the quality, look, and panache of a world-class watch.
With faces inspired by tachometers, speedometers, and other dashboard instruments, the driving and racing blood runs deep in the design of these clean, modern-classic watches.
