There are lots of companies on Earth. Some make mining excavators. Some of them test innovative construction techniques using fungi. Some of them do neither of those things. One of them is Autodromo.
Jonathan Ward likes anything mechanical and revels in unique designs, so it’s not surprising that he’s been a watch nerd longer than he’s been a car guy. And he recently sat down with the crew at Hodinkee to go over one of the more eclectic watch collections out there – which perfectly suits the man.
“A tough year, 1971.” With these four words, Jack Heuer – then the 38-year-old President of Heuer Leonidas – opened the 1972 case study on his company by the Swiss business school IMEDE.
Breitling's watches have always been the perfect accessory for pilots wanting a timepiece to match their passion. But when it comes to cars and motorcycles—the most popular transportation choice of the masses—Miki Eleta's new Timeburner is a more appropriate choice. Because instead of rotating hands, it uses a pumping…
We've already seen the 1000 MPH Rolex built for the Bloodhound SSC land speed record hopeful. Now, driver Andy Green explains exactly why he needs it.
The jet-powered Bloodhound SSC will make its 1,000 MPH world record attempt in 2016. And when driver Andy Green evacuates his bladder while blowing beyond Mach 1, if he's lucky, he won't be looking at these gorgeous gauges from Rolex. If he is, there's a good chance he's going to die.
A vintage BMW in a dark garage, a Group B homologation car in the dirt, stringback gloves and car-inspired chronographs. Wherever this fantasy world exists, I want to go to there.
Not all car enthusiasts want miniature hot rods or Corvette beer cozies. There are some goddamn classy gearheads out there, and they have impeccable taste.
TAG Heuer is the quintessential gearheads’s watch. Not the Rolex Daytona, Hublot F1 King Power, or IWC Ingenieur (as IWC’s marketing department would now like you to think), but almost any TAG Heuer.
Have you ever wanted a Ferrari LaFerrari, but decided not to buy one simply because there was no matching wrist accoutrement? Worry no more, as this week Swiss watchmaker Hublot announced it was releasing a new watch to accompany the latest and uber-iest of all the uber-Ferraris.
My buddy Bradley Price owns an old '83 Alfa Romeo GTV6 and lets me ride in it occasionally. Also he makes these incredible watches for people like him who love vintage style but can't afford to drop thousands of dollars on a car-inspired watch. I can't give you a ride in his Alfa but I did ask him to explain how he…
No, it's nothing to do with time travel. This is one of a new range of Autodromo watches inspired by the instruments and dials of 1960s and 1970s Italian racing cars. And frankly, this is as close as I'll ever get to owning such a car.
Hodinkee just tipped us that 49 watches from the Porsche family private collection are up for auction at Bonhams. The best part? With many around $1,600, you could actually afford to own a Porsche heirloom. Full catalog below.
Despite what you may or may not think about F1 racing in light of the recent hooker-centric events, it's still a pretty damn popular sport. As such, John Pszeniczny has taken inspiration from the racing series to create the F1/Carbon GMT watch. This design's a concept made of carbon fiber — we think to make it lighter…
Released by BMW to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the bubblecar that saved its bacon, porkchops and head cheese after the Second World War, this Isetta watch is rather neat, but we think we'd feel rather pretentious wearing it unless we could score a Hayabusa watch for the other wrist. Of course, then we'd look…
