AUTODROMO ANNOUNCES OFFICIAL WATCH PARTNERSHIP FOR THE FORD GT SUPERCAR
New York, N.Y. – Autodromo, the New York-based watch and accessories company inspired by the golden age of motoring, is pleased to announce a new collaboration with Ford Motor Company to create watches for the Ford GT, the fastest production car ever to wear the Blue Oval.
This official collaboration with Ford Motor Company will produce two watches: a customizable high-end piece exclusively for owners of the Ford GT, and a second design celebrating the endurance racing heritage of the Ford GT, available to all Ford Performance enthusiasts in time for the Holiday season. Autodromo’s Ford GT Endurance Chronograph, available now for pre-order, is a 1960s-inspired racing watch which celebrates the long and continuing story of Ford at Le Mans. It dominated the iconic 24-hour race from 1966 to 1969. Then in 2016, exactly 50 years after Ford’s maiden victory, Ford repeated the feat at its first attempt, winning the GT class with the latest Ford GT racing car.
The Owner’s Edition Chronograph, slated to launch in early 2018, can be customized to match each owner’s car and will have a serial number matching the car’s chassis number. The watch will be available through a private configurator website. The Ford GT concierge team will be on-hand to help customers navigate the specification and production process of both their car and their watch. The watch will have a specification to equal the car’s, featuring a sophisticated Swiss Made flyback chronograph movement, multi-layered sapphire crystal dial, and ceramic case.
