Autodromo continues to translate its love affair for motorsports via wristwatches with its latest timepiece. Named the “Group B Series 2 Automatic – Night Stage II”, the watch is a homage to the Group B-era of racing (1982 – 1986), and the use of technical components and exotic materials found in the race cars at the time. The watch sits on the wrist at 39mm in case size, and features a Miyota 9015 movement that’s housed in a two-part titanium capsule.

Other details include an unguarded bolt-like crown, a stainless steel integrated bracelet, and an eye-catching dial that’s reminiscent of tachometer designs from the 1980s — the combination of neon-green over black was once considered a futuristic design element. Those interested can find the pre-order for the Group B Series 2 Automatic – Night Stage II watch over at Autodromo’s web store for a price of $875 USD.

In other watch news, G-SHOCK taps Jubilo Iwata for a DW-5600 watch.
