Autodromo reveals limited-edition Brian Redman Chronograph
Throwback to a lost era
Limited to 500 numbered pieces (the first 100 of which will be produced in 18-carat gold-plate), the most distinctive aspect of the Brian Redman Edition is its white, red and green colour scheme, a hat-tip to the Porsche 908/2 in which Redman and Jo Siffert won the 1969 Nürburgring 1000km in fine fashion. As with the previous Vic Elford Edition, a map of the infamous 172-corner Eifel circuit has been engraved on the caseback, along with each piece’s individual number.
Another addition to the regular Prototipo, itself a faithful throwback to the racing watches of old, is a running seconds sub-dial at six o’clock; we imagine making use of that mechanical chronograph component (combined with the watch's main Quartz movement) even more satisfying. The 400 stainless-steel examples will cost $775, while the 100 gold-plated pieces will cost $1,200.
