The Autodromo Stradale Automatic is one of the original signature timepieces from Autodromo – and it’s one of the designs that launched them into the zeitgeist of horological enthusiasts worldwide. The styling of the Stradale is influenced by the dashboard instruments of ’60s era berlinettas, and the strap is modelled after the interior of Italian sports cars of the same era.
Each Autodromo Stradale is powered by a highly-regarded Miyota 9015 automatic 24-jewel automatic movement, with a calendar complication, a stainless steel case, and a sapphire crystal face and back. There are very few automatic watches available in the sub-$900 USD category that can realistically compete with the Stradale – which is why you’ll often find that it’s sold out.
