The Protoype Era in racing was a time that saw legendary drivers compete in equally legendary machines. Fast, colorful and dangerous, Prototype cars ushered in the modern technological age of endurance racing, and wrote the final chapter in the long tradition of open road racing in Europe. With the Prototipo Chronograph, Autodromo pays homage to the men who raced these thunderous machines flat out through the narrow streets of the Targa Florio, the serpentine curves of the Nürburgring, and the high speed straight at Le Mans.
The Prototipo draws aesthetic inspiration from vintage racing chronographs of the late '60s and early '70s, but with clean, modern detailing at every turn. Powered by an innovative Seiko hybrid meca-quartz movement, the Prototipo features a sweep second hand and instant chronograph reset thanks to internal mechanical linkages shared with Seiko's in-house automatic movements. Prototipo delivers the reliability and precision of a quartz watch, with the crisp pusher feel and visual delight of a mechanical chronograph.
