The Contatempo Scuderia Dashboard Collection is a series of Swiss watches designed to evoke the spirit of the original analog dashboard gauges from the golden era of motorsport. Each timepiece has a Val Suisse 3H automatic movement, a stainless steel case, an enamel dial, a sapphire crystal face and a crown positioned at the 6 o’clock position – a homage to the location of the kilometre reset button on vintage rally stage timers.
With pricing on the collection spanning $1,495 to $1,595 these are amongst the most affordable boutique Swiss-powered mechanical watches you’ll find anywhere – the vintage motorsport design influence is an added bonus.
