The Vic Elford Prototipo Chronograph is a limited edition release from Autodromo, developed to commemorate the extraordinary victory by Elford at the 1968 Targa Florio where he famously turned a an 18 minute deficit into a 3 minute 42 second margin of victory.
224 units were made in this series, that specific number was chosen as it’s Vic Elford’s race number. Each has a Seiko VK63 Chronograph Hybrid Meca-Quartz movement, a stainless steel case, a sapphire crystal face, an Italian leather strap and it’s water-resistant down to 50 metres.
100% of the proceeds generated by the sale of this watch will be donated to Micah’s Place, a non-profit, certified domestic violence center serving the communities of Amelia Island and Nassau County in Florida. Click here to see the official listing.
