You know what happens on Friday. And you may not be ready yet, like who knows how many of us. So you may find yourself in the position of having to provide someone with a belated Christmas gift. Wrapping up one like this can make that whole process easy to navigate. My pal Mark Dill, who strongly embraces the early history of American motorsport through his website, is also affiliated as a public relations specialist with the Sportscar Vintage Racing Association, a group where race cars of the past are both venerated and vigorously exercised. If you’re stuck for a late gift idea, the SVRA can help. It’s just announced that Omologato, which specialized in automotive-themed wristwatches (and wall clocks; hint, hint) has signed on as its official timepiece.
The wrist chronograph you see is one of 250 limited-edition watches that Omologato will produce for SVRA, to be sold on a first-come, first-served basis. Omologato thereby joins a growing, impressive list of SVRA corporate partners, the others being Jaguar, Land Rover, NetJets, Sunoco, Avis, Mazda Motorsports, Big Machine Vodka, TireRack.com, RACELOGIC, Cook Wealth Management, Hawk Performance, F.A.S.T. Cooling, and Marathon Coach. Tbe watchmaker’s website is right here, so you can peruse everything they produce for keeping time.
