One of the things that I admire about Autodromo proprietor and designer Bradley Price is his ability to distill inspiration into his designs in ways that don’t shout, “I’m paying homage to xxxxx.” Nowhere is that more true than in his Group B collection. In the hands of someone else, watches inspired by the infamous era of ‘80s car racing could have been a total disaster. We’ve certainly seen our fair share of horrendous automotive-inspired watches. But the Group B collection pulls it off without a hitch, utilizing an aggressive case design and dials accented with neon hues to hint at the source material without any sacrifice to the aesthetic beauty of the watches.

Today, Autodromo is unveiling its latest entry into the series—the Group B Silver dial. We last saw this dial paired with a large aluminum mid-case in one of the two limited Evoluzione iterations released last year. Here, we have that silver dial placed in the original Group B case, which features a titanium module—consisting of the mid-case, bezel and case back—holding the movement, and a modular steel chassis that makes up the lugs.
