Baltic Watches has collaborated with a pillar of the vintage motor racing scene for the ultimate stopwatch and chronograph collector’s set.
The Tricompax Baltic x Peter Auto set features Baltic’s first three-register chronograph, secured on a 1970s-style flat-link stainless steel bracelet, along with two stopwatches, all designed alongside Peter Auto, the organiser of a European calendar of vintage races every year, and inspired by the “golden age of motor racing.”
The chronograph’s central second hand and minute counter are highlighted in orange, while the hour counter is picked out in yellow. Baltic have selected Sellita’s SW-510M, a hand-wound version of the Swiss company’s chronograph movement, in a nod to the era before the introduction of automatic chronographs in 1969.
The stopwatches, once essential track-side kit, feature flyback movements and can be mounted on a supplied anodized aluminum plate that can be secured to a dashboard allowing them to be used during races.
The Tricompax Baltic x Peter Auto is limited to 300 pieces and goes on sale at Baltic, on August 26 11am EST, priced €1,975 Euro (approximately $1,977 USD).
Elsewhere in watches, Supreme Rolex Oyster Perpetual rumoured for FW2022.
