Introducing: The Autodromo Brian Redman Edition Prototipo
Brian Redman was a race-vehicle driver from the 1960s ’70s known for his ability and simplicity in the driver’s seat. He dashed a portion of the extraordinary vehicles of the time, including, yet not restricted to, the Ford GT40, Porsche 908 and 917, Ferrari 312 PB, Alfa Tipo 33, and BMW CSL. He was a Formula 5000 champion multiple times in a row from 1974-1976 and keeps on dashing vintage vehicles today.
The Brian Redman Prototipo comes in a restricted run of 500 pieces – 400 in treated steel and 100 in 18k yellow-gold-plated steel. The case is a similar elliptical shape as the first Prototipo . The dial includes a new red and white shading scheme that is equivalent to the Porsche Salzburg 908/02, and furthermore the green chronograph hand is illustrative of the green accents on the race vehicle.
The development is a Seiko-made VK63 Chronograph Hybrid Meca-Quartz. The case back highlights a guide of the challenging Nürburgring Nordschleife circuit, which had more than 170 corners twisting through the Eifel Mountains.
The watch comes in exceptional bundling with a 42-page booklet hand-endorsed by Brian Redman. The tempered steel pieces are evaluated at $775, while the gold-plated pieces are $1,200.
