Once again revisiting his triumphs at Targa Florio, the new timepiece pays tribute to his race on the legendary Italian circuit in 1969, where he drove his Porsche 908/2 to finish in second place and set one of the fastest lap records ever.
Reflecting the livery of his car at the time, the chronograph sports a playful colorway pairing a clean white upper portion of the dial with a sky blue lower sector, accented by a dash of red coming in the form of a chapter ring and seconds hand. As usual, the Prototipo carries a black tachymeter on the outer ring and three subdials in the same tone at 3, 6 and 9 o’clock, powered by the Seiko VK63 Hybrid Meca-Quartz movement. Completing the look is an engraving of the Targa Florio circuit on the caseback as well as a black leather rally strap.
For those interested, Autodromo’s new Prototipo Chronograph Vic Elford 1969 Edition is now available over on the company’s website for $775 USD.
