Watkins Glen announce Omologato watches as Official Timepiece Partners
“To associate the Watkins Glen International brand with Omologato watches is exceptional,” said Watkins Glen International President Michael Printup.
“We respect and honour the timeless traditions and history here at The Glen, and to partner with someone who shares our same passion for motorsport goes hand in hand with the birthplace of North American road racing.”
As part of the partnership, Omologato will create a limited edition WGI-branded watch available for purchase and pre-order at the Omologato website.
Only 500 will be produced and for a limited period, customers will have the opportunity to select a specific number, 1-500 for customisation.
The design of the all new Watkins Glen® Chronograph was inspired by the history of The Glen. The dial incorporates the subtle WGI logo, the black and white a nod to the history of this North American race track.
Clear digits make it ideal for glancing at and Lume makes low light visibility easier and the caseback is embossed with the outline of the track and the edition number
