This week’s WSG is sponsored by About Vintage. About Vintage is a Copenhagen, Denmark based watch company known for blending their flair for contemporary design with an appreciation for history and tradition.
The About Vintage 1960 Racing Chronograph combines style cues from classic cars and watches, with Bauhaus sensibility. Each chronograph model sports an external tachymeter scale and 3-6-9 subdial layouts inspired by the look of mid-century chronographs. Clean lines and restrained typefaces add a modern flair to a suitable stainless steel case measuring 40mm x 47.5mm x 12.7mm. The 1960 Racing Chronograph is powered by the Miyota 6S20, a quartz movement capable of timing down to a tenth of a second – perfect for timing laps.
The 1960 Racing Chronographs are available in Midnight Blue and Off-white with black subdials and come on a brown leather racing strap. About Vintage offers an option to add a steel bracelet or a rubber strap as well. The 1960 Racing Chronograph has a starting price of $399 on a leather strap and is currently available for pre-order through November 6th 2022 at 20% off retail.
