This is the Can-Am chronograph by Omologato, it’s limited to just 200 pieces worldwide, and it comes at a refreshingly affordable price point just under $468 USD.
Omologato is a British watchmaker founded by Shami Kalra that specialises in creating motorsport timepieces at prices people can afford. Each watch comes with a five year warranty of mechanical faults within the movement and a reassuring 14 day “no-quibble” refund policy.
The Can-Am chronograph features classic styling with a 42mm width and an 11mm height, it has a stainless steel case which is capped with a flat mineral glass. Inside you’ll find an almost bulletproof Japanese quartz chronograph movement and the watch is water resistant to 10 ATM or 100 metres/328 feet.
The strap that ships with the watch is a black leather rally design, it’s 22mm wide and there are a number of other straps available from the Omologato online store including a papaya orange NATO strap that looks excellent on the Can-Am.
The face of the watch has a matte finish with McLaren Can-Am inspired papaya orange on the 12, 2, 4, 8, and 10 markers. There’s a date window at the 6 o’clock position, the two chronograph registers are at the 3 and 9 o’clock positions, and there’s a tachymeter dial around the outside of the primary dial.
