Watchmaker Autodromo has added a rich green colorway to its luxe Group B Series 2 collection this season. Dubbed the “Safari” edition, the new timepiece was inspired by and named after the East African Safari and Paris-Dakar rallies of the 1980s.
The watch is wrapped with a dark green coating throughout that gives the style a subtly iridescent glow. Bright orange details are featured on the dial for contrast, including the word “Safari” spelled out in cursive as an elegant nod to the model’s namesake.
Natural-toned lume indexes and hands are featured on the face for another contemporary touch. It’s finished off with matching green packaging, which is stamped with a drawing of the winning Porsche 959 from the 1986 Paris-Dakar rally as another nostalgic reference.

Happy Saint Patrick’s day #autodromisti ! Tomorrow we are going ahead with the launch of our next version of the Group B – the Safari! This one is going to be good, folks! It was a tough call given the current craziness going on in the world. In the end, we have to keep the lights on at #Autodromohq and hopefully bring some happiness and distraction to our customers working from home around the world. We will be shipping as long as UPS pickups occur, but shipping will only happen 1 or two days a week, so we ask for your patience. We sympathize with all of those out there struggling against the COVID-19 virus. This product launch was planned well in advance and is important to our continued viability as a small company, so thank you for your understanding and support! ? ?
