The “Monoposto” was created to recall a simpler era of Grand Prix racing, when the only information the driver had was contained in a few oversized dials on his wrist. Literally meaning “single seat,” everything about the design works back to racing, from the full grain, hand crafted Italian leather strap to the polished roller buckle inspired by the hood straps that would keep the car’s bonnet in place at high speeds. Only 250 were produced. $875, available at Modern Anthology. While you’re on their terrific website, spend a few minutes looking over their tightly edited collection of beautiful home objects, clothing and accessories. And check out this great pic of the founder of Officine Autodromo, the company that created the watch:

Bradley Price, an industrial designer who set out to craft unique products that express the spirit of motoring.
